Good evening everyone! Happy Friday night and a big welcome to the Heart to Heart Blog! Well…another week is coming to a close and as I sit here…visiting with you this evening, I can say that God has been so good to me. Maybe life took some unexpected turns and maybe there was pain and other unforeseen moments that entered my week; but the important thing; is that I made it…and only because of a loving and powerful God!
You know…how often do we think about where we are at the moment, rather than what we may be going thru at the time? It’s so easy for us to become focused on what is going wrong; that we completely bypass the thought; that we have survived these moments; that seemed to spell out defeat. Tonight, I just want to praise God, for the loving care that He has shown me this week, while walking thru some difficult times!
This afternoon, as I was taking a break from my weekly housecleaning; I was thinking on something that I had read about the other day…and that is God’s power vs. Satan’s power. Did you know that when Satan attempts to use his evil power against us; that he has to have a strategy and an army of demons to complete his plan…where on the other hand…God’s power is enough to complete His plan instantly and without any help? This just goes to show that even though Satan has power…his power can never compare to the awesome power of God…and this can be a daily reminder to us; that even though Satan can attempt to make himself seem as powerful as God…he really isn’t. Sometimes, I think we all just need a reminder of this because the trials we go thru, can attempt to make us feel, as if Satan has more control over the situation.
You know…talking about the power of God; I can look back, to several moments in my life, when actually, I shouldn’t even be alive right now. In fact…recently, I was thinking back to a situation that happened last summer, when I had been preparing to take a shower. Just as I was getting ready to step into the shower…a black widow spider came down thru our bathroom fan vent and landed on my body. Right about now…I can say that you have probably never seen a lady go berserk, like I did at that time…but the important thing I want you to know; is that I never got bit…and lately…God seems to be reminding me of that, which has actually given me hope for other moments that seem hopeless; because if God could spare my life, from a very poisonous spider; then this is just a reminder to me; that He will always be there for me…no matter how I am viewing the situation at the time.
Well…I guess this has been a day of thoughts; but I have come to see that when I take in these thoughts and think on them a little; I see that God is in those thoughts. Maybe He’s using a past thought, to remind me that He will never leave me. When I’m reminded of the moments, when God has been faithful in my life; then the power of evil; that’s attempting to take me down, doesn’t appear to be as powerful, as I first thought.
You know…God has a reason, for everything He relays to us…whether it be thru that still small voice within our spirits…or just a simple thought…and every time, I experience a moment, such as I have today; then I am reminded that God is there…and He has never left my side, which continues to give me hope, for what I am going thru at this time.
Well…I have truly enjoyed these heartfelt moments with you tonight…and I pray that we will always be reminded of God’s awesome power…a power that is and will always be greater; then any other so-called power.
Take care and have a great night…and a great weekend and I will see you again on Sunday evening, as I share some more thoughts from the day, along with the goodness of a great…loving and powerful God…heart to heart!
Blessings so much on your night…and your weekend!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
