Hello everyone…and a “Happy Friday” to you! Welcome today, to “A New Day of New Hope Blog”…thru the Risen Hope Ministries! It’s so good to be back together again with you…and my prayer for you today; is that you will truly feel the loving presence, of a God who longs to be everything…for every little thing you need!
Well…we finally reached the end of the week…and we’re all still alive! For me…that’s a miracle, as most of the time, I feel like a chicken with its head cut off…lol! Instead of working for God…sometimes I feel like I’m running a race for Him. No matter what comes our way…we all seem to make it to the end of the week, which is a great reminder to me; that His strength is continually kicking into overdrive.
You know…I was just wondering today…do we really take the time to notice the moments, when God steps in and gives us a helping hand during the day. Just think…if we aren’t noticing Him at work in our lives; then we are truly missing out, on experiencing the most powerful God in action!
You know…there’s something about experiencing the presence of God in a day! It’s so easy for us to say… “Oh yea…God was in my day”…but let’s stop for a moment and really think on what we felt during those times. For me…I feel even more alive, when the presence of God is making Himself known to me. There are times, when I am preparing to write…and as I look out the window…it’s as though His presence is walking up to me…filling my thoughts with His beautiful words…words that can truly touch our lives and bring us out of moments of despair.
Over time, I have had people come up to me and say…“Great writing, Diane!”…or “How did you know I needed to hear that?” First of all…these aren’t my words; but rather, they are words that have come from God’s heart to mine…as a means of sharing them, with others who live in deep despair…or have even had a bad day! In other words…this is God’s way of loving you through me…and this is one of the many ways I experience His presence each day!
If you could see me, when I write; you would truly know that the power of God is in these hands as I type…for they go flying across the keyboard…and for a gal, who struggled through school and never found life easy…it sure seems much easier, when His Spirit enters mine.
In the past, I have had a few people say to me… “I wish I had what you have?” Well…everyone can experience God’s presence…but you can’t take these words lightly; but rather, you really need to seek Him, with all your heart. In other words…make a special place in your heart…where He can meet up with you and feel even more welcome in your life.
I truly believe that once we reach out to God and truly long to experience the depth of His loving presence in our lives; this is when the feelings of despair, will begin to take second place, while a powerful God begins to step forward and reveal Himself to us, in an even greater way, within our hearts, minds, bodies and spirits!
Well…I sure have had a great week with you! I hope that your weekend will be a good one…and that God’s presence will be ever near! Please take care…and I will hope to see you again on Monday morning! God bless!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
