Good evening everyone! Welcome back tonight, to the Heart to Heart Blog! I hope that you have been enjoying your weekend…and most of all; the time that you have spent with God today!
My weekend has been great! I have had some good time of rest…pain levels are lower and the deep heat tube is sitting further away from me…and that alone is a true blessing!! Now as I sit here…relaxing and enjoying the remainder of my time off, I am looking out my window, to a beautiful evening, while I lounge in comfortable clothes and curlers in my hair. How could life be any better! Probably about now, you are thinking that this lady really lives an interesting life…lol; but really what I have come to see in my life, is in this verse… “I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever
the circumstances. Phil. 4:11 In other words…no matter what comes our way, we can still find happiness and contentment in our lives…that is, if we truly desire that.
You know…I have come to see that the moments, where life is simple and at ease, actually become the moments, when we find it easier to connect with God. My life isn’t a life that shoots off fireworks every day, with lots of adventures to talk about; but on the other hand, I find that my life gives me a reason to talk more about God and the good things He can offer us, especially while facing the difficult times in our lives…and that truly makes my heart happy!
Throughout my life, I used to watch my brothers and my sister…along with my friends, do things that I couldn’t enjoy at the time, due to the severity of my legs. In fact…there were many moments, when I felt as if I was sitting on the sidelines of life, while I watched others being blessed; but you know what…I wouldn’t trade that life for anything because as I compare these present moments, to the past moments, I see that God used those lonely moments on the sidelines of life, to lead me to where I am today, which I truly see as God’s very best! I guess that sometimes, we just don’t come to see God’s best, until He has walked us thru the very worst…so never give up, if you are waiting on God, to bring you thru some trying times in your life!
You know…how is it that we always feel the need to have the very best that this world can offer us. I know that life can be easier sometimes, when we have more money for bills or a time to enjoy a great vacation…or even do other things that we long to do; but where would God be in all of this? Would we even have a reason to lean on Him…or even connect to Him, if we already had everything we ever needed or wanted in this life?
Many times, I have looked back on my life and found my heart having a little party…just knowing that I am saved, from a life that will soon pass away! I have definitely come to see that I may not be enjoying a life that others may have, at this present time; but what awaits me…means the world to me! I’d rather plan for my future in heaven; then to have anything this world could ever offer me now…praise God!!
Well…even though this weekend has been a quiet one, I can already see how God has worked thru the stillness of the heart! I have truly enjoyed this time with you tonight and I pray that you will have an evening that allows you to experience God’s loving presence and peace. Take care…have a great Monday and I hope to see you back tomorrow night, as I share some thoughts from the day, 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…
