Going to a higher place in life is often met with steep climbs, unforeseen adversity and debilitating struggles that leave one with a sense that a better life is not for them, but for someone else. Over the next few weeks Lift Disability Network is emphasizing a vision to believe in the possibly that our Struggles often work in us an Elevated Life. Take a look at this issue of Lift Magazine

Also, the Breakaway retreat team is deep into the final preparations for another week of life changing moments for families living with disabilities. Our theme for the 2012 Breakaway will focus on “Ascent.” You can find details on page 5 of Lift Magazine or click on the image at the bottom of this e-mail. Consider climbing higher with us July 10-14, 2012 at Breakaway.

Imagine: Lift Magazine Issue 25.2 Front PageLift Magazine: STRUG-GLE 

verb \’stre-gel\strug*gled strug*gling\-g(e-)liŋ\Intransitive verb

1: to make strenuous or violent efforts in the face of difficulties or opposition <struggling with the problem>

2: to proceed with difficulty or with great effort <struggled through the high grass> <struggling to make a living>

 

This issue of Lift Magazine is dedicated to struggles.  As we face the everyday struggle with disability, many of us grow weary.  We thought it would be good to take a moment and show how many of us who write for Lift Magazine have regular ongoing struggles. This is real life. Sometimes we face the mountain and wonder if we will ever come out on top! Or if we do climb to the top, what waits for us on the other side? The great thing about our journey with Christ is that even though there may be a mountain in front of us, He is more than willing to make the climb with us. He knows the best path to take and gives us the right tools to make the climb possible.

As you read these articles, we hope you will find encouragement to keep climbing, knowing that everyone struggles. Enjoy this issue of Lift Magazine by clicking on the Summer 2012 cover image above.

When we leak
Recently, I've heard a great deal about the things the Holy Spirit was doing in the 1960's and 1970's.  It is interesting to me because those were days through which we lived.  There were times that it seemed that the Lord was tangible enough to reach out and touch.  Even though I was very young-

Providing a Safe Harbor
One of the most important things a person can provide for any person and especially for a man or woman who is developmentally disabled is a safe harbor–a place where they can securely share their thoughts, feelings and emotions.  Because of their intellectual development, many people within the m

Eating fish
We all know that when you eat fish you will usually come across a bone or two no matter how carefully the fish has been filleted.  We also know that the bones aren't digestible and should be spit out.  Fish bones, in fact, can be dangerous; but that fact never kept me from eating and appreciating

A history lesson
Over the past months, I've discovered the classics from Sir Walter Scott, James Fenimore Cooper, St. Augustine to Andrew Murray.  Of course, most of these volumes were written in the early 1800's.  Unlocking the labyrinth of historical fact wrapped around the old English prose of that earlier cent
