Good evening everyone! It’s so good to be back with you tonight and I pray that you’ve had a great day with God! Last night, I wanted to spend some time with you; but something came up unexpectedly; so I had to cancel out for the night.
The first thing I want to say tonight, as we begin; is that God always knows what He’s doing…even if we don’t see it that way at the time. The past few weeks for me…seemed to have been one trial after another. I praise God that the chronic pain is now under control; but now my husband and I are walking thru a new trial. Our only vehicle seemed to have died and my husband’s health…along with mine hasn’t been good at times. In fact, I have lost my driver’s license…due to the condition of my legs and now my husband’s health is about to take his driver’s license from him…so now, we begin a new chapter in our lives and all I can say; is thank God for taxi service!
You know…leaving one chapter of our life, to enter a new one isn’t always easy; but one thing I’m learning…so very much in my life; is that God does know what He’s doing and He isn’t a God, who leaves us stuck in the muck and mire of that despair.
I don’t know what God has for my husband and I and I don’t see where He is exactly leading us at the time; but I do know that He will never abandon us, in the dark moments of circumstance; but rather, He will always be there to make a way, even thru the moments that just don’t seem to reveal a way.
This evening, my husband and I were watching the news, while we were having dinner…and to see what is going on in our government; is almost impossible to believe. As we sat there listening…I mentioned to my husband that I was so very thankful for my salvation and that I wasn’t walking down a path…heading who knows where. Thank God; that I have Him to lead me thru the trials and troubles of this world!
Last night…before going to sleep, I decided to read a couple Bible verses on peace; to help me relax and go to sleep. As I read John 14:27, I just laid the Bible across my chest and began to pray for God’s peace. You know…this is definitely a time, when life can become overwhelming and out of control. There seems to not only be a battle raging within this world, but within our personal lives too.
Anyways…I began to focus on John 14:27, which says… “I am leaving you with a gift…peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give isn’t fragile like the peace the world gives. So don’t be troubled or afraid.”
Let’s face it people…we are never going to make it thru this life, without God’s peace and if we look deep within this Bible verse, we see that the peace God offers us isn’t fragile. In fact, I see His peace, as a peace that may actually strengthen us and definitely renew us.
Today, we don’t have to just take these problems that come our way; but rather, we’ve been given a gift from God…a gift of peace that can keep our hearts and minds quiet and at rest in Him.
No matter what I’m having to go thru right now…and no matter how this new chapter of my life begins; I KNOW that God won’t leave me there…abandoned and forsaken; but rather, He will continue to walk me thru these moments and lead me to something even better…something that I couldn’t see in the dark…that is, until I found myself so close to the light of His presence.
Thanks for spending this time with me tonight…I could tell that God’s presence was truly with me, as I wrote to you tonight! Have a great night and ALWAYS know how much God loves you! I hope you will come back tomorrow night, as I share the goodness, of a great and loving God…heart to heart!
Blessings on your night!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
