Good evening everyone! Happy Sunday night and a big welcome, to the Heart to Heart Blog! I am so happy to be back with you this evening and my prayer is that God will truly reveal Himself to us, in a way that will bring us up and out of the dormant moments of circumstance!
As we begin our time together tonight, I would like to say that this weekend hasn’t really been like shooting off the fireworks for me. In fact, I have been laying around the house, when I’m not posting something online because I’ve been in a lot of pain.
One thing I would like to share with you this evening; is how I have found God to be so close to me, during these times of struggle. You know…we can get so caught up in these moments; that the difficult moments we’re facing, can begin to convince us that God has walked away, when all along; we are the ones who turn away from Him, to open ourselves up more to the problem.
The other night, as I was trying to just lie back on my bed and stretch out…I knew that God was reading my mind and heart that evening and that He had already known the pain I was experiencing…because as I went to read a little scripture before bed…He led me directly to I Peter 5:10, which reads… “After you have suffered a little while, our God, who is full of kindness through Christ, will give you his eternal glory. He personally will come and pick you up, and set you firmly in place, and make you stronger than ever.”
After reading this verse…it was like my heart came back to life and I began to cling to the hope; that my God would not leave me like this forever. Even though I’ve still had quite a bit of pain today, I KNOW that my God is allowing these moments for a reason that I don’t quite understand right now; but I do know that when I have found the purpose behind these moments…my God will come to me and pick me up and take me away from these difficult moments of pain and will firmly put me in a place, where I can begin anew…only stronger this time.
You know…God is all around us…watching our every move and He hasn’t forgotten us. I guess there are times, when we just need to be a little patient and let God do His work…His way.
This morning…after posting a few things on Twitter, I decided to see what other people had been posting, which I normally do every day. Anyways…as I was scrolling down the page, I came across a graphic quote that read… “The enemy always fights the hardest, when he knows that God has something great in store for you.”
For quite some time, I have felt as though these moments of pain, have been related to something big that God may have for me down the road because for some reason, when moments such as these happen…it seems as though Satan gathers in an army of demons, to work overtime, as a means of attempting to take me down and out of commission with God…but one thing I KNOW…we can’t fall prey to his ways because we will truly miss out on God’s best for our lives and we will also be giving the victory over to Satan, rather than God.
You know…just like you; I finding out more and more that the battles are getting to be more fierce; but…at the same time, I know a strength that will never weaken; but will ALWAYS help us to rise above the moments that are meant to overtake us.
As we begin another new week…my message to you; is to hold on tight to God and NEVER let go! No matter what we face and no matter how long we face it…these difficult steps will eventually walk us right into heaven, which will make everything we’ve been through…worth it all!
Well…this has been a different visit this evening; but one that I believe, will give us a boost, into this brand new week ahead! My prayer for you tonight; is that you will find peace and rest, in the loving arms of Jesus and that your week will begin with the One, who can keep you distant from despair, while drawing you closer to Him!
Have a great night everyone…take care 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…
