Hello everyone! Happy Friday…and a big welcome to “A New Day of New Hope Blog”…through the Risen Hope Ministries! Well…we have pretty much made it to the end of the week…and I’m praising God, for all He’s done for me! As we spend these precious moments together today; I pray that you will truly experience something new; that will help you, as you walk through this brand new day with God!
As I’m looking back on the week, I am remembering the many moments, when God was truly there for me! His presence has a way of making me feel alive and full of hope…and it’s so good to know that when I need Him…He’s only a prayer away!
The other day, I needed to leave my workplace behind and get some groceries. To be honest with you…I wasn’t really looking forward to getting out in the cold weather, due to the severity of my knees. I have a rod in my right leg, which for some reason doesn’t like the cold; so I go outside, as bundled up as I can, without cutting off all circulation to that leg. What a challenge!
Anyways…before leaving the house, I spent a few moments with God and asked Him to help me; so I wouldn’t have to stand out in the cold very long…as my husband and I would be taking a taxi there and back. I also prayed that God would help us to have 2 great drivers…and for the shopping to go well…and I’ll tell you…we had 2 of the best drivers…and we only had to wait outside, for about 2 minutes; before being picked up…and to top it off; they helped us with our groceries.
When I think back on all that God has done for me this week…I realize that it only happened the way it did; because I took a few moments, to ask for His help. How many times have we taken God for granted…just thinking that He would always be there? Have we ever really stopped to think; that He just might want to be included in our day? I’ll tell you…I don’t know how I could make it without God in my day, which causes me to reach out to Him even more.
You know…my relationship with God, has grown so much…just through the time I spend with Him each day. In the morning, I am asking for His strength, to make it through another day…and at night, I am seeking His peace, so I can let go of the day and rest…and throughout the day, I know that He will be there, to help me through the narrow passageways, of this journey I’m on with Him.
One thing I’ve come to see, in my relationship with God; is that we shouldn’t just pray, in a traditional way at meals and before bed; but rather, we should share our day with Him. Share a happy moment, when life is going well…and always know that He will be there, to share the hard times too. We will never come to see what kind of a relationship we can have with God, if we are always remaining silent before Him.
I pray that as you begin your day…that you will find the time; to include God, in every moment you walk through. One thing I know…when we are in sync with God; then life will become easier…even during the difficult times!
Well…it’s been good to be back with you today…and I have truly enjoyed each moment that we have shared together this week! I hope that you will have the best day ever…and that you will have a great weekend too! Take good care…and I will hope to be back with you again on Monday morning! God bless!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
