Good Wednesday evening everyone…and a big welcome to the Heart to Heart Blog! It’s so good to be back with you tonight! I hope you had a great day…and even if you didn’t; isn’t it good to know that God is only a prayer away, when we need Him the most?
Well…it’s been another full day…and I want you to know; that it sure feels good, to be in some comfortable clothes, with the feet up on the daybed! I have really come to appreciate the little things in my life so much more and I even thank God for my bed…before going to sleep at night, which I never used to do.
Anyways…before I forget…I want to let you know that I do have this week’s audio weekly word of encouragement posted, on Inspiration for the Heart. Since I wasn’t here last night, I wanted to make sure to let you know that the page has been updated this week. If you could use a short word of encouragement, to see you through the remainder of the week; then visit Inspiration for the Heart right here! From there, all you have to do is sit back…relax and listen to me, as I share what God has placed upon my heart, for you this week!
Well…today has been a day of helping others. I have met new people…encouraged new people…and I can say that God has definitely been at work in this day! In fact tonight, I was thinking on all the difficult moments in my past and as I sat here…thinking back to those moments, when all I had was questions; I was now seeing those questions being answered today.
You know…we don’t always understand why God allows us to go through certain things in our lives. In fact…at the time, when I went through the overwhelming moments of pain and heartache in my life, I just couldn’t understand how God could ever use moments like these in my life. In fact, I felt more like I was being tortured at the time; but now, I have come to see that God definitely does have a reason, for each thing we go through…even if we can’t see it that way at the time.
There was one specific person today that God had led me to and as this person began to talk with me…it was as though I was hearing an echo from my past because those words were so much like the words and questions I asked God, over 20 years ago. Now…God was walking me through those moments once more…but in a way that made me clearly see, the reason for why I had went through those difficult times.
Tonight, I thank God that He knows what’s best for our lives! As I look back on those years of pain and deep heartache…I can’t even begin to imagine what my life would be like right now, if I would have chosen to play God on my own or even not choose to follow Him through those dark pathways of life. The best thing I can say to you tonight; is to not question God, or try to figure out the problem; but instead…just trust Him. He really does know what is best, for all of us!
Well…time for some dinner and a little more work before bed. I sure have enjoyed my time with you once more tonight and I hope you will come and join me tomorrow evening, as I share more thoughts from the day, along with the goodness of a great, loving and powerful God…heart to heart!
Have a good night everyone…take care and may your Thursday be filled with many blessings from above!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
