Good evening everyone! Welcome tonight, to the Heart to Heart Blog! I am so happy to have you with me this evening and I hope that your Monday has been a good one!
I can actually say tonight; that my day was great…and definitely filled with the presence of God! Even though the storm of pain and tiredness, was still attempting to take me down; God took me in His loving arms and overrode the storm and kept me moving forward, with His loving and powerful strength.
Today really amazed me because I truly came to see how God can work thru a storm. You know…He’s not a God that sits back and waits for the storm to end…or a God, who has to bring the storm to an end first; but rather, He’s a powerful God, who can keep us pressing on, despite the storms that come our way.
As I began my Monday, I came into the office and spent some great time with God, on the website and Twitter. Today, He was ministering to my heart, on His wisdom. You know…we can have all the gold and silver in the world; but when the value of those precious stones is no longer there, we find that they only become rocks that serve no purpose…but when we have God’s wisdom; His wisdom can lead us down paths that can steer us away from the obstacles that can trip us up in life, while leading us in the direction, to the things that He so longs for us to experience in life. I have often seen God’s wisdom, as a path that leads us to another path…a path of understanding…an understanding that can help us to know where God is leading us in life; so when we have wisdom…we truly have everything we need, for this journey we’re on.
After finishing my time with God, I had a couple things to do in the kitchen and then it was back to the office for me. I have to be honest…when I came back to work, I didn’t know how I would feel or even handle the day; but God stepped in…right in front of me and walked me thru this entire day…and I praise Him so much for that!
You know…isn’t it amazing how our problems can attempt to convince us that we can’t make it; so instead of pressing on thru these trying moments, we tend to give into them; but do you know what…we also never come to see what God had intended for us to experience, in the moments when we chose to give into what our problem was dictating to us.
One thing that I was reminded of today; is that I don’t need anyone or anything but God. As I began to work on a new project today, I could actually hear that still small voice within my spirit…directing me, from one thing to another and as I followed thru, with what I felt God had for me to do…everything went just fine and at the end of it all, I came to see how God’s strength can truly be everything we need, during times of weakness.
I don’t know about you; but I find that every struggle in my life, ends up being a lesson learned…something that can help my faith to grow; so I can be stronger in the Lord. I was telling my husband a while back; that if I gave into every ache and pain…or even the moments that made me feel so tired; then I definitely wouldn’t be where I am right now. I may fail at times; but it’s God’s strength that brings me back to my feet and reminds me that I can definitely do all things thru Him! I just love having God as my boss and I can say without a doubt; that I could never run the show like He does!
After finishing a couple things this morning; God was leading me on to a new project…one that I could have never figured out on my own. For the longest time, I have wanted to put a catalog, of all my books on the website; that would be free to anyone…a catalog that would let others know about the books that God has blessed me with over the years…along with other information.
Well…quite some time back, I did accomplish the catalog…that is, with God’s help but I wanted a download for it on the website because there are probably many, who don’t have an account, at the sites where my books are being sold…and I don’t know about you; but I wouldn’t set up an account somewhere, just for a free catalog; so I spent time with God and within a short time, the ideas started to fill my thoughts; so today, I went to work on the project and I’m happy to say that it’s now complete! In fact, I have it in 3 different download formats; so anyone can download it for free, to any device they may have…even their laptop. I also have built in links throughout the catalog; so you can click on a link and be led, to right where the book is being sold. If you would like a free copy of my catalog of inspirational books, all you have to do, is go to the homepage of the ministries website, which is http://www.risenhopeministries.com and you will find the catalog on the left side, as you scroll down the page. I hope you will stop by there sometime and get your free download!
Today, I can truly say that God’s hand was on everything that was accomplished throughout the day! I may experience difficult days of pain…but God always brings me a new tomorrow…one that reminds me of His loving care for me. I know one thing…I could never live without Him in my life!
Well…another day is behind me and tomorrow, God will open the blinds to another new day…one that I’m learning to anticipate more and more. I pray that you will have a good night…and may you truly experience the loving and peaceful presence of God, as you rest throughout the night! Take care and I hope that you will stop by again tomorrow evening, as we share another day together, 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…
