Good evening everyone! Welcome tonight, to the Heart to Heart Blog! I am so glad that you came this evening, to spend a little time with me and God! I truly hope that you have had a good start to your week today!
Well…what can I say…it was another one of those up and down and side to side nights. In fact, I began to feel like I was being tossed with the waves of the sea…lol. I’m beginning to think that I actually get more of a work out at night…just by tossing from one side to another…to escape the pain that is attempting to keep me awake…lol. I guess it’s good that I can laugh about it…and it’s probably only because that night is now a part of my past…thank God!
This morning, as I was spending time with God…I began to thumb thru my Bible; to see what God would have for me to read and also share on Twitter. One of the Bible verses He led me to this morning, is actually a verse that has brought me thru times of discouragement and it’s found in Galatians 5:7…and we read… “Ye did run well; who did hinder you that ye should not obey the truth?” One thing I’ve learned not to do; is to become so deeply focused on what has happened to me; but instead…focus on how far God is bringing me…thru the moments that have just happened.
You know…it’s so easy to want to give into the moments that become so overwhelming within our lives; but I have come to see that these moments are actually a test. In other words…can we keep pressing on, despite the moments that are attempting to bring us down…and can we look beyond the difficult moments that have just hit us head on; to focus on what God is doing thru those difficult times?
I’ll tell you…this verse became an instant pick me up this morning and I know without a doubt; that God was using this verse once more, to encourage me; so I wouldn’t give into the moments that were attempting to keep me away, from what God had planned for my day…and I have to say one thing…the moment I decided to start my day and keep going…the whole day went great…so you see, when you give into a problem…you truly miss out, on all God longs to do for you, in your day…and I believe that with all my heart!
As God began to walk me thru my day…it became a day of catching up on some other things; so I could devote the rest of the week to ministry work…and one of those odd things I had to do today was my taxes. Just think…I got out of bed, just so I could do my taxes today…but again, I found myself passing the test for the day, as I began to go to work, on what I don’t think any one of us enjoys…lol. You should have seen my daybed and office this morning! Papers decorated the daybed, while the sound of the printer became the music of the morning. All I can say; is that I’m so glad that the taxes are done for another year…and yes, I can still say that it was a great day, even while doing my taxes.
Now as my day is coming to an end, I am reminiscing on all God has brought me thru and how He blessed my day so much with His loving presence…and just think, if I would’ve gone back to bed, I would have missed out mainly…on experiencing His presence in my day.
You know…we may wake up in the morning, with dread, as to what is awaiting us throughout our day; but one thing I know; when we are willing to allow our thoughts to walk beyond these moments of dread, to anticipate a great God at work throughout our day; then I believe that life will seem so much easier and more at peace.
Well…it’s about time for dinner and then a little bit of ministry work; but I have truly enjoyed our visit tonight and I hope that you enjoyed it too! Please take care and know that you are in my thoughts and prayers each night before bed…whether I know you or not…because I truly believe that God knows you and your needs!
Well…until tomorrow night, I pray that you will have a great evening…filled with the peaceful presence of a loving and caring God and that your Tuesday will be a good one! I hope that you will join me again tomorrow evening, as I share my 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…
