Hello everyone…and a big Monday welcome, to “A New Day of New Hope Blog”…through the Risen Hope Ministries! Well…here we go…another new week together! As you begin this brand new day; I pray that you will have a great day…and that you will truly feel and experience God’s love for you!
You know…no one understands the heart like Jesus! Today, as I’ve been sitting here…starring out my window; I’ve been thinking on all that He has not only brought me through; but also, on all that He continues to carry me through each day. When I focus my thoughts on these things; then I find that a new hope begins to spring up within me…a hope that says that Jesus is there…and will always be there.
You know…there was a time, when I never experienced these feelings of hope…and why…because I was leaning on my problems and trying to muddle through on my own, which in the end; only led me to a fall. People just don’t always realize how much love God has for them. Seems like people tend to say that they know that He will always be there for them; but when a problem smacks them in the face; they only seem to fumble around, for a hope that can lift them back up to their feet.
There was a time in my life, when the abusive words of the past only told me that God would never be able to love me…or even care for me. I felt so put down; that I didn’t feel worthy of His love; so I allowed the past to push His love out of my life; but as He began to do the little things that we sometimes tend to bypass; I began to see a love that I had never experienced before…and to this day; that love has grown and grown!
As we begin a brand new week, we need to not only pray for God to help us through the week; but also pray that His loving care for us will become evident…in each moment of each new day. In other words…we need to experience His love and not just try to convince ourselves that His love will be there for us.
Sometimes, when I think back to all the surgeries…pain and deep heartache; I can’t help but see how He has walked through every difficult moment with me…and even to this day; He has a way of comforting me, as I work through pain and tiredness. In fact, I feel His presence even more throughout these difficult times…because His love is bringing me down to His level…where I not only hear His still small voice within me; but I also find that He is taking me beyond the pain and tiredness; to actually love me through the pain…for His loving words have a way of penetrating and soothing the pain waves that attempt to overtake me.
As you walk through this brand new week with God…anticipate the loving care He longs for you to experience…for these beautiful moments spent with God will not only bring peace to your thoughts; but will also help you to know without a doubt…as to how much He loves and longs to care for you each day!
Have a great Monday…take care and I will hope to be with you again tomorrow! God bless!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
