Good evening everyone! Happy Friday night…and a big welcome to the Heart to Heart Blog! As I sit here this evening…the rain is gently falling outside my window, while relaxing to some beautiful Christian harp music. Today has been a difficult day of pain…but I’m here…praising God, for bringing me through another day.
You know…so many times we don’t realize how God is truly caring for us…at a time, when we can barely care for ourselves. As I see the rain falling; it’s just as though He has given me a peaceful setting tonight, as a means of caring for me; so I can share His loving words with you. What a great friend I have!
I don’t know about you…but I am looking forward, to the final step of this journey; that I have been on, for so many years. I thank God that He’s here for me now; but I just long for a place of eternal peace…a place, where there will be no more tears…pain or moments of deep heartache.
One thing I have learned through these painful moments; is that we don’t have to wait to get to heaven, before experiencing the same God, who resides in heaven. His presence surrounds us every day…sustaining and suspending us above the moments that could truly spell out total destruction. The only difference between our life with Him now and our life with Him later; is that later in heaven; evil will be shut out of our lives for good…and I praise God for that piece of hope; that I hold so tightly to!
No matter what I have felt today…or no matter what came my way; I chose to press on. This morning was a great time with God, as I listened to some soft and relaxing music, while spending time in God’s word…and even though my heart and mind were struggling this morning, due to the pain…I was still able to connect with God and share His thoughts, with others in need.
You know…we will always face struggles in this life; but one thing I’ve learned; is that when we give into the struggles; then Satan wins and we lose out, on all that God longs to do through the struggle.
Today, as I cleaned my house, while taking several breaks throughout the day…I truly found out the meaning of Philippians 4:13. I found that I can truly do all things…through a powerful God, who has more than enough strength, to help me through the difficult moments of a day. You know…it’s so easy to memorize these verses or claim them as our life verses; but until we live them; we will never truly experience the depth of what they really stand for.
I’ll tell you…it’s been quite the day…and the pain has been very real; but so has my God! He answered my prayer this morning and became the strength that I no longer had…and I praise Him for that tonight!
As we close our time together, I would just like to leave you with a little reminder; that I will still be updating Sunday Inspiration this evening. Unless you are a night owl…you can start viewing Sunday Inspiration tomorrow morning, by clicking here or looking for Sunday Inspiration, under the tab…near the top of the webpage, titled… “God Inspired Writings.”
Well…I sure have enjoyed this time with you tonight and my prayer for you; is that you will truly find peace, in the loving arms of God! Take care and I will hope to be back with you Sunday evening, as I share more thoughts from my day, along with the goodness of a great…loving and powerful God…heart to heart!
Blessings so much on your night…and your weekend!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
