Hello everyone…and a big welcome today, to “A New Day of New Hope Blog!” It’s so good to be back with you…and my prayer for all of us; is that we will truly experience God above any weakness that may attempt to enter our day!
Well…this has really been a great week so far for me! I have truly felt the loving presence of God, with every step I’ve taken throughout this first part of the week! Just think…we are now entering the hump of the week! The way I see it…is that it’s only downhill from here and since God has already brought us through the first part of the week; then I know that He will be there, to carry us through the remainder of the week!
One thing that has been on my mind, while I’ve been sitting here…visiting with you today; is how important it is to keep pressing on…no matter what may come our way. When I look back on my life…there were many times, when I tried to sit in the middle of a broken road and give up; but I praise God today; that I never succeeded at doing that…otherwise, I wouldn’t be doing what I’m doing right now.
You know…it’s amazing how a circumstance can make us feel lost in a world of our own…a world that only seems to include us and the circumstance. It seems like these moments can be so overpowering at times; that we just can’t get beyond them; to see what may lie ahead of us…beyond the circumstance.
As I think back to last week and every blow that Satan brought my way; it seemed as if the moments I was experiencing at the time became so real that I actually couldn’t see an end to them. Yes…I was praying and trusting God to bring me through; but I also felt that each trial was for a reason, which I found out later to be true. You know…even though we have this powerful God living within us, as a Christian; that doesn’t mean that Satan isn’t going to strike us, where weakness seems to be more evident in our lives.
It’s amazing how last week seemed so tiring and hopeless at times; but yet today, I see everything in a different light…and why is that? Because I chose to press on, in the midst of a foggy circumstance; that attempted to make me feel isolated from life itself.
I think the thing we need to do, while facing the overwhelming struggles and challenges of life; is to not become caught up, in what is happening to us at the time; but rather, we should be pushing forward…through the darkness, as God leads the way. When we can do this; then we will come to see a new dawn that will cause us to look back on these trying moments in our lives, as a means of acknowledging a God, who at one moment became strength for us. What a God!
No matter what you’re facing…may I encourage you, to not sit in the midst of this brokenness; but rather, get up…shake the circumstance from you and go forward, on the strength of a great and mighty God…AMEN!!
Well…I have truly enjoyed this time together with you today! Moments like these become little reminders; that can be held close to my heart…for the moments that can seem to be such a struggle in my life!
I pray that you will truly have a great day! Please take care and know that you are all in my prayers! See you tomorrow…and many blessings on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
