Hello everyone…it’s so good to be back with you…and it’s so good to have you with me today, at “A New Day of New Hope Blog!” My prayer for all of us; is that we will truly experience the presence of a God, whose love alone can touch and heal each broken moment in our lives!
As I’m sitting here in my office today…the snow is falling, after a green Christmas. Isn’t that something…that the snow would arrive the day after Christmas? Anyways…it was quite the morning…as I needed to go grocery shopping. How many people choose to go grocery shopping, the day after Christmas? I have to admit…it really was the best time to go, as I was the only crazy person in the store…lol.
Earlier, I had heard that we were supposed to get a fair amount of snow; but I was praying that God…the one with the control stick in hand; would hold the snow back, until I got home…due to the condition of my legs.
As my husband and I headed off to the store in the taxi…the driver was also confirming the weather forecast that I had heard; but mentioned that the snow may not arrive until around 5:00 pm. I think it was around that time, when my heart began to have a party of its own, as my legs were not looking forward to walking on that slippery stuff.
Anyways…after being dropped off at the grocery store…I took my time and enjoyed some moments away from the office and computer and then later, we returned home. Just after finishing with the groceries and lunch; I began to go back to work…and as I happened to look out my office window…here came the snow. As I continued to enjoy the beauty of the snow falling around me; I gave thanks to God…for He truly had answered my prayer…and not only that; but He had also shown me a loving and caring Spirit; that could only come, from a love such as His. I don’t know about you…but I just love moments like these; because it’s not only the thought of answered prayer; but it’s the moments of experiencing the presence of God in my life; that allows my heart to soar into the heavens…close to His!
You know…we were never promised; that this life would be free from troubles; but we were told that Jesus would be here for us…to help us through the darkened moments. How many times are we going to tough it out on our own…before we call out to Him for help?
I have truly found…that the uncertain moments that lie ahead of me, do not have to be feared…because I have a God who will not only listen to me, when I’m in need of His help; but I also have a God, who will follow through and make life easier for me.
You know…I remember a time, when I would just suffer needlessly on my own. I guess that the circumstances I experienced at the time had weakened my faith; but now I see how my faith has become strengthened, through the moments, when I truly experience His presence, while facing these troubled times…which only becomes a constant reminder; that God is always there for me.
No matter what you face or are facing…remember that God is only a prayer away…and He will not only listen; but will follow through and turn these difficult moments around and lead you down paths that can keep you distant, from the destruction that can stem from these trying times in your life…but first, you must be willing to humble yourself and ask for His help…and that’s the best piece of hope I can offer you today!
Well…I’ve truly enjoyed this time with you…and I pray that you will find God to be a close friend, who will not only listen to you; but will truly be there for you, in your hour of need. Take care and I will hope to be with you again tomorrow! God bless!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
