Good evening everyone! Welcome tonight, to the Heart to Heart Blog! I am so, so glad that you came to join me this evening! I hope that you have had a good day and have especially experienced the love of God in your day!
I can truly say that my day has been connected with God all the way! Isn’t it amazing how we can find it to be a struggle, just to get out of bed in the morning; but then as the day goes on, we find that life is moving along a little smoother. Sometimes I think that just starting out our day is a sign of faith. For I believe that the one who keeps going, despite what they are feeling; is actually sending a message to God; that they long for a good day; so in response…God blesses us with a good day.
As I began my day…it was with God and even though I was still struggling to wake up, I sat in my office and listened to music…read God’s word and even posted some tweet thoughts on Twitter.
After finishing my time with God, I went into the kitchen and only had a little to do, which was make Chinese Friend Noodles with Chicken for tonight…mmm. From there, I was excited to know that I was going to have more time to work for the ministry today; so I headed right back into my office and began the work that God was placing on my heart for the day.
Some of you may not realize it; but I’m not only the director of the Risen Hope Ministries; but I am an author of books too. Never once in my life, would I picture myself doing this. In fact, if my English teacher was still alive…I think that she would have to sit in a chair, when I let her know what I was doing, as I was never a good student in English.
Can you believe that I hated English…short stories and even reading sometimes and now God has given me the task, to share His words with others? You know…one thing I can say for sure; is that there is a difference between writing a novel or some other kind of book…compared to writing the words that a person has truly lived and walked thru…which I have. Every word that God has given to me has only come from a heart and a life; that first lived and learned those words. You see…God took a gal, who always struggled in life and gave her a great task to do for Him.
I truly believe that God always chooses the humble in spirit because that kind of a person will not listen to themselves; but will always strive to hear the voice of God within their spirit. I have come to see…even at one time in my life; that a person with pride, can never connect with God…only themselves.
I also believe that the one who suffers the most, is also chosen by God, to do something special for Him because they have already walked the difficult roads and can truly relate with someone else…heart to heart.
Today, as I began a new project with my books…or should I say God’s books, I was taken back, to the many times that God worked with my heart…even before writing those words. Even while reviewing the story on my life this afternoon, I began to truly see how far my God had brought me and how He truly stood on every promise; that He ever made to me. Praise Him so much for that!!
What a great day this has been…just me and God! I love Him so much and I cannot praise Him enough, for all He has walked me thru in life! When you feel as if you will never make it…just like I did at one time…always know that His promises are true and that He will never leave you or forsake you; but instead, He will come to you and be there for you, until these moments have come to an end.
Oh…before I forget, I will be posting my weekly word of encouragement, which is really “Inspiration for the Heart” and if you would like to check that out tomorrow morning…here is the link. I won’t be posting this week’s audio weekly word of encouragement until later tonight; but you are welcome to listen to last week’s podcast, if you haven’t already.
Well…it’s about time for me to go, as I still have some ministry work to finish before bed. I hope that you have enjoyed our visit tonight and I pray that you will have a good night…resting in the arms of a loving and caring God! Also, I hope you will stop by tomorrow night, for another visit, as I share my day with you, along with the goodness of a great…loving and powerful God…heart to heart!
Blessings on your night!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
