Good Thursday evening everyone…and big welcome, to the Heart to Heart Blog! What a great day it’s been! I actually woke up this morning with a lot of pain…but I knew that God was with me because He kept a smile burning in my heart, even when I was probably making all kinds of faces throughout the day…due to the pain.
Well…this afternoon, I ended up spending 2 ½ hours with God, as I wrote for this week’s Sunday Inspiration. Wow…what a great time I had with God today and I even became so engrossed within the writing; that I actually forgot about the pain. I truly believe that when I spend these moments with God…deep in thought and close to Him; then I am being taken to a place that is higher than any problem I face…a place where God and I are on the same realm…sharing together…heart to heart.
Anyways…even through the struggles I faced this week, I ended up with a beautiful thought for the week and a great God inspired writing for Sunday Inspiration, which is titled… “An Uphill Climb with God,” which is something that I had never originally planned on doing. It just goes to show who’s in charge and that isn’t me. If you are feeling as if you are climbing a very high mountain in your life and you’re feeling drained…discouraged and hopeless; then you won’t want to miss out, on Sunday Inspiration this week. I know I say that every week…but what am I supposed to say, when God is leading the way and giving us these beautiful words of encouragement each week. If you want to check out this week’s Sunday Inspiration; then I will be posting a link, in tomorrow night’s blog and also, you can find Sunday Inspiration, under the tab at the top of the page, titled… “God Inspired Writings.” Also…the page will be updated late tomorrow evening, for those of you, who like to stay up late and read.
You know…today has really amazed me, after several difficult days of struggle…and I don’t really know why I say that because God should never amaze us, in the way that He can work within our lives.
Anyways…today, I actually saw a complete turnaround…compared to the past few days…or even the past week or so. Like I said…even though I woke up in terrible pain; there was a different feeling inside of me today…a feeling as though I was going to come out of these difficult moments, with something brand new.
As I spent some time alone with God, for several hours this afternoon; it was as if God wasn’t only taking me to a different realm with Him, in the writing; but it also seemed as though He was taking me to a place, where He was bringing back a little more joy within my heart, as my hands were being lifted on high…with so much love in my heart for Him.
You know…the way I’ve been hammered lately by Satan, would probably make him think that at one time or another, I would probably throw in the towel and give up…but that’s not what I did. One thing I’ve learned, through my own difficult moments of affliction; is to always keep pressing on…no matter what attempts to get in my way. It doesn’t always mean that it’s going to be easy…because it isn’t. The battles we fight with evil are very draining…discouraging and can even make us want to give up; but when we choose to press on…no matter how difficult it may seem at the time; then I have come to see that eventually Satan does give up and walk away.
No matter what you may be facing right now; may I encourage you to lean on God’s strength because when we lean on God’s strength; then we are being fed with a strength that is endless…a strength that can walk us through any difficult time and take us to the other side of the trial.
Well…I have really enjoyed our visit tonight and it’s felt so good to just “shoot the breeze” and talk about whatever this evening…but it’s time for me to have dinner and get back to work. My prayer for you tonight; is that you will truly experience a perfect peace that will bring you rest throughout the night, while giving you renewed strength, for another new day! Please take care and I will hope to be back 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 night!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
