Hello everyone! Happy Wednesday…and a big welcome today, to “A New Day of New Hope Blog”…through the Risen Hope Ministries! It’s so good to be back with you today…and my prayer for you; is that you will truly know without a doubt; that God is there for you!
Today, I want to share some thoughts with you…kind of a testimony, on the power of a great God. As some of you already know…I have been going through a lot with my health lately…but the other night, I was determined to go on Twitter and see what God would have me share with those on my page.
Anyways…as I walked into my office, I was still not feeling the very best…plus I was feeling a little drained, from working all afternoon. As I sat at my computer…I didn’t know if I was going to be able to post anything…but that seemed to be ok with me…especially since I already knew that God was the one in charge…not me.
As I continued to stare out the window and listen to some music from time to time, I began to feel God move…even through what seemed to be the darkest moments of my day. From there, I headed over to Twitter and the words began to flow, into such beautiful and eloquent writings. As my hands glided across the computer…posting words, from God’s heart to mine; I began to feel as if a light was penetrating the darkness that Satan was attempting to captivate me in. Before I knew it…hands were in the air, as I began to worship and praise the God I love.
You know…it’s so easy to get caught up in every symptom of our problems. We wonder where God went to, while we sit and also wonder when we will ever walk out of these moments that can seem so dark; but today, I want you to know…that I know a God, who can penetrate the thickest clouds of darkness and can break through any circumstance…take hold of us and lift us on high with Him.
One thing I’ve come to witness many times in my life; is a God who never gives up on us…even when we try to give up on ourselves. We can be sitting in the darkest moments of a day and feel alone and captivated within moments that feel so hopeless…moments that can make us feel as if we will never return to the land of the living…that is, until a powerful God steps into the picture. I have come to see that when He enters these hard and difficult moments of life…He not only comes to us; but His power does too…a power that stems from a great love…one that will go the distance for us, when we have nothing more to give.
No matter what you’re facing today…and no matter how bad life may seem; may I encourage you, to never give up on God and the help that He so longs to give you. Open yourself up to Him today…and let the tears of a hurting heart become a message that says… “I need you so much, Jesus!” One thing I know…when He receives this heartfelt message…He will break down every barrier, to be there…just for you…believe me…I know!
Well…I don’t know about you…but I have been encouraged all over again today! One thing I would like to say, as we close; is this… “Always know that you are never alone, in whatever you are facing…for I understand your pain…and even more…Jesus understands completely!” Please take care…have a great Wednesday and I will hope to be back with you again tomorrow! God bless!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
