Good Tuesday evening everyone…and a big welcome to the Heart to Heart Blog! I hope your Tuesday was a good one…and I pray that we will have a great time together this evening with God!
First of all…before we begin, I wanted to let you know that I have posted another audio weekly word of encouragement, on Inspiration for the Heart and you can find it here. For those who are new to the site…last week, I started something new on Inspiration for the Heart. Now I’m taping a story on my life each week and how God worked through that time in my life…as a means of encouragement to you…and also as a way for you to know more about me and the journey I’ve been on with God, for many, many years. Also, I have started a library of tapings below the audio player on the page. That way, if you missed a taping or would like to listen to it again; then it will be available to you right there on the page; all you have to do; is look for the one that you would like to listen to and click on the link. I really hope that you will enjoy Inspiration for the Heart even more!
Well…today has been a great day! It was another one of those days, where it seemed like I was going from room to room in my home. I guess that a little of this…and a little of that; is what makes life interesting.
You know…I remember a time in my life, when I was unknowingly leading the way with God. It can be so easy to get side-tracked…and before a person knows it…they find themselves ahead of God. The only thing; is that leading the way can cause us to enter unknown territory, where Satan can take advantage of the situation and even twist things up and make life even more difficult than before.
One thing I thank God for in my life; is that He sees these moments, when I tend to either get ahead of Him or lag behind Him. There was a time, when I felt so uncertain about what I was doing…and there were even times, when I tried to piece the day together on my own…thinking that everything would automatically fall into place. Instead of finding it, in this way; I found everything confusing and out of sync with God. As I spent time alone with God…shortly after that experience; God began to show me that all I had to do, was let Him be the boss, while I remained His secretary.
You know…sometimes, I think we try to be popular or feel the need, to always have control over a situation, which only causes us to get ahead of God, rather than just simply being faithful and walking in sync, with the One, who can easily lead us through this life. You know…I think that we would find it easier to be less popular and more faithful, if we would only leave the world’s ways and ideas behind and be more open to God’s ways.
Well…I don’t about you; but I have truly enjoyed our time together this evening! Sometimes we just need a reminder…and a little help, when we find ourselves lost in unknown territory. One thing I know…when we just follow God through life; then life will be much easier…and there will be more peace.
Tonight, I pray that you will have a great night of rest and that your Wednesday will start out, by looking for the footprints that God has for you to walk in! Take care and I will hope to be with 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…
