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.

Friendship Evangelism
For many years, I taught a seminar called "Friendship Evangelism."  The basis of this teaching was that people are much more susceptible to hear the promises of the Gospel, if they know and respect you.  We all have a knowledge of the friendship of David and Jonathan from the Bible.  Even if we o

Overcoming Fatigue
After four days of Camp Agape, my children laugh that I'm in my Camp Coma for about a week.  While it's humorous there is a lot of truth in their designation of my abilities.  There are some things that I've learned from others and from my own experiences regarding physical fatigue. First, this

Explaining grace
In the past weeks, I've been going over some of the key words in our covenant relationship with God.  Perhaps one of the most important words we use is grace. Most of us have learned and maybe we even remember God's Riches At Christ's Expense This is great explanation of grace and

Familiar customs and limited means
When the Biblical young woman, Ruth, married into a Jewish family she understood little about their ways, God or religion.  This is my supposition; but I base the conjecture on facts.  Moabites were shunned by the Israelis.  Decades before, Moab wronged the wandering tribes who desired to trav
