Good Tuesday evening everyone…and a big welcome tonight, to the Heart to Heart Blog! It’s so good to be back with you this evening and I am truly looking forward to our visit tonight!
Well…for some reason, this has been the beginning of an odd and different week. Sunday evening, I took some sticky notes and titled them “Monday,” “Tuesday” and “Wednesday.” On each piece of paper, I put a couple of things that needed to be done throughout the week for the ministry…and can you believe that I have already crossed some things off for Wednesday, when it’s only Tuesday and yesterday, I was crossing off some things that I had planned to do today. This afternoon, as I looked at my notes, I was reminded that we can make the best laid out plans…but truly the final outcome is in the hands of God…so what I am seeing before me; is my plan for the week…being accomplished according to God’s desires.
After spending time with God this morning, I decided to start working on my audio weekly word of encouragement…which is really “Inspiration for the Heart.” Also, I’ve started another brand new project, which is my testimony, in audio form. You should have seen it this morning…put it this way…I now know that summer has pretty much arrived because it’s like everyone has come out of hibernation and is ready to get out of their houses, from a long winter…because I was writing in the midst of lawn mower noise…proof reading, while my neighbor was vacuuming the outdoor carpet on her patio…and as I just finished taping…she decided to get her hammer out and work on a project. There was one moment, while proofreading; that I felt in competition with the vacuum…so I said…“Lord, could you please help me!” Immediately all noise came to a halt. I know one thing…I’ll be leaning on God even more this summer!
Once I had beaten the noise and accomplished both tapings, I went over to the website and updated “Inspiration for the Heart.” In fact, you won’t want to miss out on this week’s taping, as I have a very interesting story to share with you, on my life. If you would like to check out my audio weekly word of encouragement, on Inspiration for the Heart…you can just click here! Also…below the audio player, you will see a couple past tapings, for May 2nd and May 9th; so if you missed them or if you would like to listen to them again; then please feel free to do so.
The next project that I’m about ready to share with you is my testimony, in audio form. I have come to see…especially during the past week’s; that many are interested in the ministry; but yet they really don’t know as much about me and how God led me to the ministry as I first thought; so tomorrow, I should be finishing this project and hopefully by tomorrow evening, I should have a link, as to where you can sit back…relax and listen, as I share a little of my life with you.
You know…it doesn’t matter how mixed up a day can seem…as long as God is leading the way! I think sometimes, we tend to forget that He’s the One in charge. It’s our own human way of thinking I guess; that makes us feel as if we have to have everything planned out a certain way…but I have found that when we depend too much on our own plans; then there can be times, when the day doesn’t always seem to go as planned, which only brings about heartbreak and disappointment.
One thing I was reminded of today, as I looked down to all my sticky notes…was that nothing actually went wrong; in fact, it actually went better and that was because God had taken my list and made it work His way. I don’t know about you; but I’m so glad that I have God there, to sort thru everything in my life and rearrange it, in the way that will truly work out best, for both of us.
Well…I don’t know about you…but I have truly enjoyed our visit...and my day! I pray that as you rest this evening; that you will truly feel the loving and peaceful presence of God throughout your night! Take care…have a great Wednesday and I will hope to back with you 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…
