Hello everyone! Happy Wednesday…and a big welcome to “A New Day of New Hope Blog”…through the Risen Hope Ministries! It’s so good to have you with me today…and my prayer for you; is that you will truly know that God is always there for you…no matter what!
As some of you already know…I’ve been struggling with the attacks of Satan the past couple of days; so yesterday, I decided to take my afternoon off and spend it with Jesus. Seems like I spend so much time encouraging others; that I neglect to do it for myself…and I’ll tell you…I really needed this time with Him!
One thing I love about spending time with Jesus; is that He accepts me for who I am. I don’t have to say anything special to Him…just let my heart tell the story to His heart. Yesterday, as I let go of everything that had been weighing me down; I could hear that still small voice within my spirit saying… “I am here for you Diane…I am here for you.”
You know…if you want someone who will be there for you…and will listen to your every hurtful thought…and if you want someone who won’t walk away or judge you; then you need to go to Jesus and give Him everything that is hurting you.
I will never forget a time in my life, when I was so broken; that I could hardly bear it…that is, until a knock came at my hearts door. When I opened the door…it was Jesus and He had heard my deepest cries and wanted to spend some time with me. As we communed together within the heart; I began to experience a friend, who wanted so badly…to just be there for me…and ever since that time…I run to Him and share my every need.
When you feel as if no one could ever love…listen or care; I know a God that will go beyond anything…just to be there for you. He will accept you…no matter what you’ve done. You know…Jesus never said that the mountains in life would be easy to climb; but He did make a promise to us; that He would be with us…to walk close beside us…and even allow us to lean on Him, when the journey was too hard and difficult.
Yesterday, as I listened to music…read God’s word and communed heart to heart with Jesus…I began to feel the weight of each burden…drifting off into the background of my life, as His love and peace began to replace the brokenness that had attempted to take me down.
One thing I know…is that we all are going to experience some difficult times in our lives. It doesn’t matter if we serve God or not…life can take us down to a place, where these weak moments attempt to drown us beneath the troubled waters of despair; but when we can run to Jesus and let go of everything except for Him; then there can be a peace that passes all understanding.
No matter what you are facing today…take some time to sit alone with Jesus…the One who will listen to your heart and help you through the moments that are just too difficult to get through on your own…for He loves you so!
Well…one thing I can say…Jesus has been so good to me…helping me through so much in my life…and now, I pray that He will do the same for you! Take good care and I will hope to be back with you again tomorrow! God bless!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
