Hello everyone…Happy Wednesday…and a big welcome, to “A New Day of New Hope Blog!” I’m so glad that you came to visit me today…and my prayer for you; is that you will truly experience God in your day…no matter what may attempt to come your way!
A while back, I had built a bird feeder, to hang outside my office window. Believe it or not…I’m pretty good at building things with my hands…but I do need to give credit, to whom credit is due…and that is to Jesus Christ…the One who gives me the skill to do all things! It seems as though He not only blessed me with the gift of writing; but the gift of many things…from creating my own recipes in the kitchen…to decorating our home…and now; building bird feeders.
Anyways…I’ve had this bird feeder hanging on a tree limb…right outside my office window; but no birds came to visit me. I really wanted to do this, as a means of relaxing, while I write and do other things for God…so I was a little disappointed, when no birds showed up.
After many days, of watching an empty bird feeder…swaying in the breeze; I happen to turn my head…and here was a beautiful bird inside the feeder…enjoying a smorgasbord delight, of different varieties of seed. I was so excited; that I forgot about my soup warming up on the stove and almost burnt it…lol.
Anyways…as I watched this precious bird; God began to remind me of a Bible verse in Matthew 6:26, that says… “Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?” What an awesome Bible verse! Just think…these birds that God has created, live in a world that I like to think of, as a very large bird cage. They fly free and are cared for every day by their maker. Now don’t you think that God would care for us even more?
It seems like lately, I have witnessed many people, who are having a hard time…people that are struggling to make ends meet. My heart goes out to them because my husband and I have also been on a tight budget; so we can help someone, who has had a very difficult time in life.
As we have been helping this person, for quite some time…I have truly watched God step in…and make a way, for every little need that we have had…and one thing that I have come to see especially; is when we are in sync with God…walking side by side with Him; then He ALWAYS makes a way.
No matter what you may be facing right now…just stop for a minute and think on this…why would God create you and me; so He could love us and then turn around and walk away from us…at a time, when we need Him the most. No matter how dark the path may seem right now…I KNOW a God, who will never fail or forsake you. Always be open to His will for your life and He will bring you through the hard times, in a way that will not only bless you; but will make you stronger.
My prayer today is that you will find hope…knowing that God is always there for you! As we close our time together, I also pray that these moments that may seem to be a struggle in your life; will draw you closer to a God, who longs to care for every need that you may have!
Well…it’s time for me to go…but I hope that you will come back again tomorrow and spend some more time together with me, as I share more of my life with you…along with the goodness of a great and mighty God!
Blessings so much on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
