Hello everyone…and a Happy Wednesday to you! Welcome today, to “A New Day of New Hope Blog”…through the Risen Hope Ministries! What a great time of the day, to slow down and enjoy your company…and even more; the presence of a great…loving and powerful God! As you begin your day, I pray that your day will be truly filled with His awesome presence!
You know…sometimes it’s so nice, to just slow down and sit on the daybed in my office and stare out the window into nowhere! I don’t know what it is; but when I do that, I seem to connect even more deeply with God. I can be looking up at the clouds, as they move by…or I could just be watching a tree blow in the wind…and words of hope will drift through those moments, into a heart that can truly feel the heart of the One who is sending those thoughts my way. Sometimes, I even feel prompted to write these thoughts down and tuck them away, in my little box of thoughts…or maybe even use them on Twitter. No matter what…it’s these quiet moments in my day that actually draws me closer to the heart of God.
How many times do we actually sit down and let go of every thought that has invaded our minds throughout the day…just to sense the loving presence of God close by? Don’t we realize that His presence surrounds us each day…in so many ways? I truly believe that if we could only slow down and look, listen and anticipate His loving presence; then we would find Him, in the still and quiet moments of that day.
You know…I actually believe that the busy moments of a day, can be one of the greatest opportunities for Satan to step in and raise havoc. Since we are already feeling out of control, during these moments…he just seems to think that he can add more fuel, to a fire that is already burning within us.
One thing I have come to see in my life; is that I not only need God, as I begin and end my day…but on and off throughout the day. What a comfort to know that He is only a prayer a way…and I find that when I speak a simple prayer like… “God, I could use your help;” that this is when He steps in and completely turns a day around; that can feel so out of control.
You know…time with God can truly make the day into something special…and oh the feelings that come, from His heart to ours…feelings that can calm a troubled moment and bring sweet peace into our hearts…and His presence definitely has a way of warming the heart and bringing new life back into it…a time, when we experience moments that have never been felt before.
As you begin this brand new day…take a little time…stare out a window and breathe deep and let the spirit of God enter these moments; that you too may experience the fullness of a God, who can truly make every moment of your day complete!
Well…I truly have enjoyed this time with you…and what a way to write…enjoying some quiet moments with God, as I prepare to walk through another new day with Him! Today, I pray that as we begin to step into another new day; that we will also feel the presence of One so true…stepping into each moment that lies ahead of us; that we may not walk alone; but rather walk close beside someone that we can commune with…throughout each minute of the day!
Well…until tomorrow…take good care…have a great day and I will hope to see you again soon! God bless!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
