Good evening everyone! Welcome back to the Heart to Heart Blog! I hope you’ve had a nice day! What a day it’s been for me…after only 4 hours of sleep; but one thing I can truly say…God has once more proven Himself faithful and has become strength to this tired body of mine! You know…I just don’t know how anyone can make it without God…I know I can’t…there is just no way that I could ever think of making it thru life without Him!
As we start our visit tonight, let me ask you a question. Have you ever woke up in the morning and focused on the bad night you had and after a while, you begin to see a day that went from bad to worse? May I say to you … I don’t think that’s a good thing to do because you know what…I have found that Satan will be right there…ready to lead us into further problems. I have definitely come to see that even if I’m barely making it; due to the pain and tiredness that I experience from time to time…the best thing to do; is to try and think beyond these moments and thank God for just allowing us to survive these difficult times.
You know…talking about surviving the difficult times; I heard some bad news today that happened within my state (Washington State). Early this morning, I found out that an Amtrak train had derailed…about 50 miles from Seattle Washington. From what I have heard; there were 6 people found dead and many that were taken to different hospitals in the area…and even at this time, they don’t know if there are others that may have died.
As I was thinking on this throughout the day; sadness came to my heart, for those who had passed away especially. Who knows where these people were headed. Maybe some of them were heading home for Christmas…who knows…but the thing that I was thinking on the most; is how we just don’t know, when it will be our time, for us to leave this earth. Just think…these people probably thought that there would be no problems and they probably never thought that they wouldn’t make it to their destination.
I don’t know why; but we as humans tend to focus on age and just because we’re young, we never think that we could start out going somewhere and never return. Look at those, who are in our military. I remember watching a video on YouTube, of a man in the military, who was about to be sent home, within a short time. He had made plans with his sister, to do all kinds of things; but he never made it home. I’m not trying to bring you down tonight…just sharing some thoughts that God has placed upon my heart today…thoughts that make me think on how important it is, to make sure our lives are right with God each morning…before beginning a new day…and every evening, before going to bed.
I guess today has been a day of mixed emotions…a little tiredness, with a sad heart, for those who didn’t survive that train derailment. You know…we are so blessed, to be sitting here with each other tonight…and we are blessed even more, when we truly know God, rather than just knowing of Him.
Well…soon another new day will begin. Who knows what kind of a day it will be and what may come our way; but one thing I do know…I have God to face it with me! Have a great night and I pray that you will find God’s peace to be of comfort, as you rest throughout the night! Take care and please come back tomorrow night, as I share another new day with you…along with the goodness of a great…loving and powerful God…heart to heart!
Blessings so much on your night!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
