Hello everyone…and a “Happy Wednesday” to you! Welcome today, to “A New Day of New Hope Blog!” It’s so good to be back with you…and my prayer for you, as we begin today; is that God would truly bless every moment of your day, with His very best!
Today, as I’ve been sitting here…just looking out my window; I’ve been talking with God and saying… “I can’t believe that I am a writer.” Then I said… “Although…you are really the writer…and I’m just the one going along for the ride.” The reason why I say this is because I did so poorly in school; that God has to be the One doing all this work through me. In fact, if my English teacher was here…we would either have to get her a chair or we’d find her on the floor…lol!
Anyways…to this day, I’ve been wondering…how on earth, could a person like me…who never liked short stories or any other kind of story; do all these writings…and the answer I have for you; is because God is in it all. I can tell you 100%; that there would be no words to write without Him.
You know…it truly amazes me, as to how God can take a person, who has struggled for so many years and use them, for His honor and glory. When I first began writing for God; I remember many times, when I would write a paragraph and think in my mind…this is what God must want me to write…never realizing that it was more about me than Him. Once I came to see that I was leading the way, instead of following His lead; that is when the whole paragraph got erased and I was back to the drawing board…only this time with Him.
As I look back on my life…I see how each weak moment had to take me down to a level, where I could be in tune with God, rather than myself. It was through the weak moments and the moments of failure; that actually put me in a position to serve Him…for if I would’ve been above Him, rather than in sync with Him; then He would have never been able to use me, in such a way.
You know…sometimes we can feel as if God is being too harsh with us…but that is only because we are viewing what is taking place, with eyes that are expecting something different; then what God has planned for us. In other words…our expectations…as to what we feel God will do, can end up taking us to a place, where we can even feel as if God has abandoned us, while all along…it was our own expectations of God; that led us away from Him.
I have come to truly see that life can be much easier, when we stop trying to figure God out. Sometimes, we need to just slow down and go for the ride. When we choose to go with the flow, rather than against it; that is when we begin to see what a great…strong and powerful God can do, through moments of weakness.
Well…I have truly enjoyed our visit today…and I really hope that your Wednesday will be it’s very best! Take good care and I will hope to be back with you again tomorrow! God bless!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
