Hello everyone! Happy Tuesday night…and a big welcome to the Heart to Heart Blog! I hope you had a good day and I pray that God will truly bless our time together this evening!
Well…I’m sitting here this evening, on my daybed in the office…just enjoying a little relaxation, after a very busy day. The pain levels have been up a little bit today and the tiredness has brought me down…but I haven’t given up on God. What a great friend I have and I want the world to know, just how much I love Him!
You know…I don’t think we really understand where our words…or even our thoughts can lead us. Let’s face it…our words and thoughts are either going to lead us further into despair, which Satan wants…or they will help us to rise above the despair in our lives.
One thing I know…it’s not always easy to stop complaining, when pain stands right before you…or even when the heart is reminding us of deep heartache; but what I have found lately to be true; is to find a reason to praise God, thru the midst of these trying times…because when we do this; then Satan never gets to hear, what he is expecting to hear from us, which only weakens his plan and brings him to his knees.
Today, as I began the start to another day, I was struggling to just get out of bed…and it seemed that with time; the pain made itself very evident to me; but I kept pressing on. In fact, I spent almost the whole morning, working on a brand new audio weekly word of encouragement. I have come to see…so much through my writings and audio tapings; that God becomes even more evident through the pain and tiredness of a day. In fact, I truly believe that these moments not only bring me to a place, where I am totally dependent on God; but also, to a place where I am closer to His heart…a heart that not only connects to mine; but works through the difficult moments; so that His presence can shine thru my heart, to other hearts in need.
Tonight, as I look back onto the struggles of the day; I also remember the moments, when God stepped in and was faithful to me. It’s now His footprints that remain behind, as a constant reminder; that He will always be with me…no matter what I face in this life.
You know…one thing I was reminded of today, as I worked on my audio weekly word of encouragement; is that I could never connect with God, in the way I do; if it wasn’t for the painful storms that come my way. Probably right about now, Satan is wanting to hear words of discouragement from me; but what I really want to say…is thank you for the storm that came my way today; for these pain filled moments have brought me even closer to God; then yesterday. I have come to see, through these difficult moments; that even though pain can make a person feel, as if these moments will lead to a defeated life…they really can’t because my Lord has control…even over the moments that Satan attempts to bring me down with.
I guess that I really opened up my heart to you tonight…but what hope I received in return! Before I forget…when you get some time…please check out my audio weekly word of encouragement, on “Inspiration for the Heart,” as God really worked with my spirit this morning. If you would like to check it out this evening…everything is set up and ready to go; so just click here and from there…enjoy a short audio word of encouragement; that will truly help you thru the remainder of your week!
Well…it’s been a great night…and I just love the way God works thru my writings! I hope you also enjoyed this time together and that you will have a great night of rest, as you rest in the arms of a loving Savior! Take care and I will hope to see you again tomorrow night, as I share some 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…
