Good evening everyone! Happy Monday night and a big welcome to the Heart to Heart Blog! I hope you had a good Monday and I want you to know tonight; that I am really looking forward to our visit together!
Well…my Monday hasn’t been too bad. As I got up with the chickens this morning…or should I say the crows, I began to see how the day hours are changing, which helps me in the morning, to have more light, where I won’t trip over anything, as I walk around the house and turn on the lights. You know…to be honest with you…it isn’t always easy to get up at 6:20 in the morning…and I’m sure that some of you out there feel the same; but once the joints limber up and the eyes actually open up; I do begin to see that it can be a good day!
One thing that’s always on my mind, when I come into the office in the morning; is how I am truly experiencing a brand new day…just created by God. You know…it’s kind of like getting a new piece of clothing and wearing it for the first time. It always feels so fresh…bright and beautiful and most of all…brand new. You know…each new day should make us feel, as if God has just pulled up the darkened blinds, to a day that was made, with you and me in mind and I truly believe that when we anticipate this brand new day…that was just made for us; then we will come to see things happen in our day; that will allow us to truly experience the presence of God.
Well…after waking up to my Monday, I went into the office…made a phone call and then I got alone and spent some quiet moments together with God, which I just love every morning! I have come to truly see; that a day can’t be blessed by God, if there is no connection with Him, at the very beginning of the day.
After finishing up in the office and doing a little dinner prepping in my kitchen, I came back in the office, to catch up on a little work and think about a possible new page on the website. You know…I have a page, titled “Inspiration for the Heart,” which is an audio weekly word of encouragement, for the hump of the week, which is every Wednesday. Then I have Sunday Inspiration, which is like having church on the website…every Sunday. Then of course, I have the Heart to Heart Blog…most every evening; but lately, I was thinking…or should I say that God was placing it on my mind, to design a page for Saturday…maybe a fun page; that would encourage us all at the same time. So anyways…I began to focus on that this afternoon and I don’t know what happened; but before I knew it, I was already working on Sunday Inspiration, for this coming weekend. I guess God wasn’t quite ready for the new page. Anyways…it looks like Sunday Inspiration is going to be another great page for you to view this weekend. In fact, if you feel as if you are struggling to live up to certain standards or expectations in your life; then you won’t want to miss this week’s Sunday Inspiration.
As you can see…I’ve had a little different kind of a day…but a good one. One thing I am learning not to do; is to make plans and to always let God lead the way and make the decisions for me, which is very wise. You know…when we give our lives over to God; that means that everything pertaining to our lives is in His hands…not our own. We can make plans and hand those plans over to God; but one thing we need to be prepared for; is that the outcome could change…just as it did in my day. The most important thing though; is to always know that you’re headed in God’s direction, rather than your own.
Well…I guess I’m all talked out…or maybe that’s all God has for me to say tonight. I sure have enjoyed this time together this evening and I pray that you will have a great night…surrounded by the presence of God and that you will come back again tomorrow night, as I share more thoughts from my 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…
