Hello everyone! Happy Monday night…and a big welcome to the Heart to Heart Blog! It’s so good to be with you again this evening and I pray that we will truly have some great moments together tonight!
Well…today was a very different kind of day. My Monday actually started, after a sleepless night of pain. Even though the morning started out a little rough, I can actually say that everything went pretty smooth…in fact, smoother than what I first thought. It seemed like everything just fell into place and before I knew it, the morning had now turned into early afternoon. It just goes to show; that God sees more than we sometimes give Him credit for. Whenever I think of moments like today; my mind goes back to a Bible verse in I Peter 5:7, which reads… “Let him have all your worries and cares, for he is always thinking about you and watching everything that concerns you.” After last night…what a great reminder; to know that no matter what we go through; God is always up in the heavens…looking down, on everything that concerns us!
As I left my morning behind, to now enter my afternoon…the day only continued to get better. For quite some time now, my husband and I have been trying to see what we could do; to get some things to the dump. Now that neither of us can drive and we don’t have a vehicle; we’ve been looking around, to see what we could do; to get some things cleaned out of the garage. At the same time…my husband wanted to go to the dump, where we used to go because then we could take all of our recycling items and get rid of those things too.
Anyways…after looking online for some help, we came to see that it would probably cost us $85 and up. Since we’ve been helping someone internationally, our budget has been tight; so my husband and I agreed to pray about it and see what God would do for us. Well…we got our answer from God over the weekend because our neighbor has an old truck that we thought was no longer in service...that is, until we saw it parked out front of our place, which only caught our attention. Then as Keith and the neighbor were talking out front this afternoon…he said to Keith that he was going to make a run to the dump, in about a week…and it was the dump we like to go to…so, now my husband will be going with him soon and we will only have to pay the dump fee. Now isn’t that something…how God works! I truly believe that God had that truck parked out front…just at the right time. To some, this would seem like nothing; but to my husband and me…it’s truly a blessing from above.
You know…it just amazes me, as to how Satan can attempt to step in and mess up a day and make life difficult…that is, until God steps in and cleans everything up…in a way that is truly best for us.
Even after a long night, with barely any sleep, I did do some work today on this weekend’s Sunday Inspiration…and what a blessing, to be able to focus on music and Bible verses; that may not only be used for this weekend; but also, as a means of uplifting and encouraging myself. One thing I have found over time; is music and scripture reading are truly the best remedy, for what ails the soul.
Well…even though this morning seemed uncertain and a little rough…I can truly see, where God stepped in and gathered all the broken pieces from the night and began to piece them together, in a way that would truly reveal His presence to us this evening.
No matter what you may be facing…one thing I can say to you tonight; is never give up! You may feel as though you have been left in the dark and you may even wonder how everything is going to come back together in your life; but when we leave it with the One, who sees all things; then we can live with confidence; that our God will make a way, where there seems to be no way.
Well…it’s hard to believe that our time is up for this evening…but I do need to have dinner soon and finish up some work. I hope you enjoyed this night of blessings and I pray that it also gave you a glimpse of hope, for whatever you may be going through right now.
Tonight, I pray that you will truly feel at peace, in the arms of God and that your Tuesday will truly be blessed by Him! Take care and I will hope to see 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…
