Good Tuesday evening everyone…and a big welcome to the Heart to Heart Blog! I want you to know that it’s so good to be back with you this evening and I pray that God will truly bless our time together!
Well…the week has already started out to be a busy one! Some days…it just seems like there isn’t enough time in a day, for all that needs to get done…although I can say that I did get this week’s audio word of encouragement finished and set up on Inspiration for the Heart! This week’s story is dealing with a very trying time in my life…a time of great loss. You won’t want to miss out on the story…and especially what God did through this very hard and difficult time in my life. If you would like to check out Inspiration for the Heart tonight; then just click here…sit back…relax and let me talk with you, for about 7-8 minutes, on a part of my life that truly brought me closer to God.
This evening, I was on Twitter…before coming here for our visit and I was saying that this week has been a week of struggles and battles; but at the same time, I have felt a powerful hand reach beyond these moments…to draw me back, to where I belong.
You know…I’m sure that we all have moments in our lives, when we feel as if nothing seems to go right. No matter how much we pursue what’s before us and no matter how much we aim to press on; it seems as though we take two steps forward…only to get knocked back ten. This is how my week has been going and it’s only Tuesday. No matter what has attempted to hit me straight on, I have been trying to not give into the moments; that seem to be taking me down…but one thing I noticed today, while working; is that for every trying moment that came my way; there seemed to be a feeling, as if a hand had reached out before me…to help me and steady me through the blows that had already come my way.
One thing I know without a doubt; is that Satan will work overtime to take the one down, who is truly trying to remain committed to God. He seems to have a way of putting things in our path; that either side-track us or just seems to make life more difficult; but the thing we need to remember; is that while Satan is attempting to pull us down…God is right there…willing and ready to pull us back up to our feet.
You know…while I’ve been sitting here tonight, I’ve been thinking to myself that maybe we just try too hard sometimes, to fight these moments, in our own way, rather than letting God do it His way. Maybe we would find it easier to get through whatever we’re facing at the time…just by riding out the storm with God and allowing Him to control the direction, in which we go…because you know…we have to believe that God will never allow anything or anyone to side-track us…to the place, where we become distant from Him.
I don’t know about you…but I’m seeing more and more; that life is getting to be much more difficult, for the one who is truly committed to God. Sometimes…as a human, I wonder if there will ever be moments, when I can’t stand strong…through difficult times such as these…but then God reminds me; that as long as I have Him living in me and walking side by side with me; that He will always be there, to reach out His strong and powerful hand, against these forces of evil…and today; that became very evident.
One thing I truly enjoy about this time with you; is that while you are taking in what I share with you…I am also doing the same and there have been many times, when I have entered my office…tired…in pain or discouraged…only to share these special words from God with you and find renewal in the end.
Well…it’s time for me to get back to work, as I still have a little bit more to do before bed. Tonight, I pray that you will have a night that is filled with the perfect peace of God and that your Wednesday will be a very special day…truly blessed from above! For now…take care and I will hope to be with you again tomorrow evening, as I share more thoughts from the day, along with the goodness of a great, loving and powerful God…heart to heart!
Blessings so much on your evening!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
