Good evening everyone! Happy Monday night…and welcome to the Heart to Heart Blog! I almost didn’t come on tonight because I’ve been in a lot of pain, since the middle of last night. One thing I know…is that when I feel a tug within the heart; that means I need to walk beyond these moments and write because God has a plan and that plan may include someone else, who needs the inspiration…just as much as me.
I have to be honest with you tonight…I don’t know what to share with you because I’ve been resting on my daybed all afternoon. The one thing I can say tonight; is that Satan always seems to step in and afflict me…at a time, when God is about to do something…so that’s another reason for me to press on and write this evening.
You know…I don’t know about you; but these difficult moments we face in life, can make us feel so unworthy or worthless. They can take us down to a place, where they seem to control our feelings, which only reminds us of where we don’t want to be. Maybe it’s because we are comparing God’s unconditional love, with a love that is so conditional in this world. It seems like there are always expectations in this world; that we feel that we always have to live up to, which makes it that much harder to rise above the despair in our lives; but one thing I have come to see; is that we can be who we are before God…no conditions and no expectations; because you see…God is reminding me tonight; that He is a god that walks beyond all our failures…weaknesses and imperfections…and why…because He is more concerned about the need of our heart; then anything else at the time.
This morning, as I came online…I struggled to post anything on Twitter; but decided to spend time with God and see where it would take me. One thing that did come to my thoughts was this… “When we feel as if we aren't making it, through the difficult moments we're facing; God will step in and be everything we lack.” Just think…even though we feel as though our bodies and our hearts have plummeted down to nothing; this is actually the time, when we can experience the greatest power ever. In fact, we don’t have to accept the way we feel, when there is a God, who longs to step in and be everything we lack in life. All we have to do; is let go of the feelings that are controlling us, through a time of affliction and let God step in and do something new…something that can keep us uplifted with Him, rather than down in the rubble of despair.
See what God is doing tonight...and how He can work through our afflictions…that is, if we are open to Him, rather than the problem that is weighing us down. One thing I will tell you…it’s not always easy…and to me; that is where the battle begins because there may be times, when Satan fights even harder, as a means of keeping us down and distant from God; but I have found that the more I pursue…the further I become distant from Satan and his evil ways. We should never remain standing within the muck and mire of our despair; because that will only make us an open target, for evil to prey on.
You know…I told my husband tonight; that I was going to come on here and write, as a means of letting go of everything from the day…and you know what…it’s helped me a lot. I may not feel the best physically; but I do feel like I have gained a new strength and many reminders, as to what can help me through these difficult moments.
One thing I can say to you tonight…no one is any different in this life, than another. We all hurt and go through the painful and challenging moments of this life…whether we serve God or not and no one is perfect. We all have flaws and even live with failures from the past; but just as we all experience the same pain and heartache in life, we also serve the same God…a God, who doesn’t see us differently, from one another…just a God, who longs to walk beyond what went wrong…to make it all right.
Well…I’m going to go and relax and have some dinner; but I want you to know that I am so glad that I came online tonight and I pray that you were encouraged…just as much as me! Take care and have a safe and peaceful night and I will hope to see you again tomorrow evening, as I share 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…
