Good evening everyone! It’s so good to be back with you tonight, on the Heart to Heart Blog! I hope that your Friday has been a good one…mine certainly has! God is so good! I just love Him so much! He is everything to me and was certainly with me today, as this was a very busy day for me!
Well…it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, in the Inland Northwest…which is where I’m from! Today, we had our first snow and we were only supposed to get 1”– 3”; but it looks to be more like 4”– 5”…and it’s still snowing.
I wish that you could be where I am tonight! As I’m sitting in my office…relaxing from a busy day; the yard outside my window is all aglow. The trees are iced with snow and as I look up to the yard light, I can see each beautiful snow flake falling from the heavens. I don’t know about you; but I just love it, when the snow makes the yard glow! You know…God sure has a way of making a plain old simple night, into something beautiful! I truly believe that this is one of His ways of revealing Himself to us…that is, if we see it that way.
As I enjoy the snow outside my window, I am thanking God in my heart, for all He has brought me thru this week! As I look back on this week…I see the days when I didn’t know if I could make it thru the difficult moments of pain and tiredness; but now I truly see how faithful God has been to me and I love Him so very much!
You know…as I look at the snow falling tonight, I often wonder if each snowflake could be a frozen tear…coming down from heaven. Could it be that God is sad over this world and all that is happening or could it be tears of joy, as He rejoices with us…thru the difficult moments we overcome. I have even felt at times; that God could even be crying with us, due to the circumstances we face from time to time. Only God knows what these frozen tears from heaven stand for.
I remember a time, when I was spending a whole summer writing. After my housework and cooking was done…I would go out on the deck and just sit and listen for that still small voice within my spirit. Anyways…one day I got up, to look over the deck rail and as I looked into the sky, the cloud formation standing before me, made me feel as if they were curtains that I could just walk right on thru…right into heaven. As I stood there…starring at these clouds for a few minutes…a gust of wind came up out of nowhere and about knocked me over. For some reason, I felt as though God had breathed down upon me and as I walked back to my lounger, I began to write a poem titled… “God’s Breath Brings Newness.”
Can you imagine what kind of a connection we would have with God…if only we were to try and see things around us, in the way that God may be seeing them? I truly believe that everything God puts before us…tells a story, of what He is actually trying to convey to us.
Tonight, as I sit here…enjoying the beautiful snow, I’m not thinking any longer about the pain and tiredness I have felt this week; but instead, I am feeling the presence, of a God who entered my spirit and became strength for me, while holding me up and walking me, into a peaceful evening…as I am experiencing right now.
No matter what you are facing…give God a chance. The path that you are walking down right now, may not be an easy an one; but I know a God, who will make it easier…that is…when we allow Him to take over, rather than just trying to muddle thru on our own.
Well…I’m going to go and enjoy some more of this snow, while I finish some ministry work. I hope you have a very nice evening…and may God truly be with you…to love you and hold you, thru the trying times of your life! Take care and I will see you again Sunday evening, as I share my day…along with the goodness, of a great…loving and powerful God…heart to heart!
Blessings on your evening!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
