Good evening everyone! Welcome tonight, to the Heart to Heart Blog! It’s so nice to be back with you tonight! I’m sorry I missed you last night; but I’ve been struggling with complete exhaustion, due to a lot of pain and work.
I don’t know how many of you out there deal with chronic pain…but to me, it’s one of the worst things to go thru because it’s not just the pain that’s the problem…it’s how it affects your body in general…and most of all your mind. For me, after so much time of chronic pain, my mind struggles to deal with the pain; so sometimes I lash out at my husband and say things; that are only being dictated thru the pain. Thank God that I have a husband that understands these difficult moments I face.
You know…today, God was reminding me of a love that doesn’t focus on the mistakes we make…and He was also reminding me; that He is a God that completely bypasses these moments; so that He can love and care for us. I don’t know about you; but sometimes it’s not always easy to see His love in this way; because of all the rejection we face here on earth.
One thing I clearly remember while growing up; was how I lost friends over my knee problems. I remember the moments, when I was teased as a child and no one seemed to want to be friends, with someone who was always facing surgeries and pain; but now, as I have grown up, I have come to see that I was only treated that way because as children, my friends could have never understood what I was facing at the time.
You know…I’m glad that God understands our weaknesses and the difficulties we face in this life. More and more, I am seeing God, as the greatest friend that I could ever have…One, who will love me, even while facing an off day, where everything seems so out of control. Like I said…it’s hard to believe that God loves us…no matter what; but you know what…He does and I’m seeing that more and more in my life.
Today, we need to remember that God isn’t a god, who lashes out at us, for our failures and mistakes; but instead, He longs to take us into His arms and hold us and become a place of refuge…a place, where He can calm these troubling moments that we can’t get under control, on our own.
You know…I love God so much…and as I was sitting here before my writing, I was listening to a song by Avalon, titled “Orphans of God” and one of the things that were mentioned of in the video was this… “We will get what we don’t deserve, which is eternal life…and we won’t get what we do deserve, which is eternal death.” You know…God knows everything about us…what we have done and where we have been in our lives; but yet He chooses to love us anyway! Wow…what a love!
No matter what you are facing tonight…just know that God isn’t looking at your failures; but rather, He is looking at the need of your heart and He longs to help you thru these difficult times. Just accept His love and walk into His arms…arms that can hold you and help you thru these difficult times.
Well…I didn’t plan on writing like this tonight…but God did and I pray that your heart was touched by these words; just as mine has been deeply touched. Take care and I hope you will join me New Year’s Eve, for a special writing, as we share some time together…heart to heart!
Blessings on your night!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
