Good Tuesday evening everyone…and a big welcome, to the Heart to Heart Blog! I just got off of Twitter and had wished everyone a “Happy Monday night”…lol. Hmm…I must have lost a day in the week and just think…this is only Tuesday. At least I remembered what day it was, by time I came for our visit…and no, I’m not getting old…at least I don’t think so…just a memory lapse, from some pain I’ve been experiencing today. I guess I found one good reason to have pain…and that is to blame all my mistakes on “pain!”
Well…as you can see; it’s been another one of those days, which I seem to be having lately. I did accomplish some work today; so I praise God for that! I guess it doesn’t matter what goes wrong in a day…as long as something goes right.
Talking about work today, I did do another taping, for Inspiration for the Heart, which is my audio weekly word of encouragement…and wow…did that ever come out nice! This week’s story has taken a completely different turn from the past 3 weeks and you won’t want to miss out, on what I have chosen to share with you today. One thing I like about these stories; is that there is a little word of encouragement hidden in each one; that can inspire and give you a different look on life…with whatever you may be experiencing at the time. Also…don’t forget to look below the audio player…on “Inspiration for the Heart,” as I have posted the past week’s tapings, for those who may have missed a taping or would like to listen again. To visit Inspiration for the Heart…just click here or you can find my weekly podcast, under the tab…near the top of the page that reads…“Weekly Events.”
You know…it seems like every day becomes more of a challenge for me, as I am not only dealing with health issues; but also facing the opposition, which is Satan. I think we tend to forget that Satan does have power. We always talk about God being powerful…which He is; but Satan’s power can sometimes become a blow; that about knocks us to our knees.
Tonight, as I was preparing to spend time with you, I came very close to just forgetting about my evening online…to go to bed. The pain has been a constant thorn in my side lately and sometimes, I find it very difficult to keep holding on.
As I sat on the edge of my daybed, in the office this evening; I was looking at a picture of Jesus, which I have on my desk…and it was as if a new strength began to enter me, along with a new attitude…an attitude towards evil, for all that Satan had attempted to do to me today. As I continued to sit on the edge of the bed…I thought to myself…it’s time to get going and not let Satan bring me down and that is the only reason why I’m here tonight…because of the choice I made…and you know what? I have found that when we choose to do the right thing; then God will be right there…supporting us, through it all.
You know…Satan may have attempted to take me out of commission with God tonight; but due to my actions and response…God stepped in and brought evil to its knees, rather than evil bringing me to mine. You know…I think we just don’t always realize how our actions play such an important part in our lives. To me…our actions become the hand that either leads us in God’s direction or Satan’s direction…and the more negative we become, during difficult times such as these…we only find that the hand of evil is dragging us further and further away, from the One we need the most, during these difficult times.
Even as I’m writing you tonight, I can feel the power of God rising up, within the midst of what Satan attempted to do to me this evening…and now His words are becoming the rope of hope I need…to keep holding on.
No matter what kind of a day you’ve had…just know that the right choice will either lead you away from these dark moments…or the wrong choice and the wrong response, will lead you deeper into what you are already facing.
Life is never easy…is it? Believe me when I say; that I have had a lifetime of this and it’s still not always easy to keep a clear head and remain headed in the right direction; but when we allow the right choices and responses, to become a message to God, of how much we are desperate for His help; then help will be on its way…and from there, we will find that what seemed almost hopeless...a few minutes ago, has now completely turned around into something full of hope.
Well…I don’t know about you; but I have truly felt the presence of God this evening! I thank Him for His loving care and mercy…at a time, when I’m not always able to remain standing…and I thank Him, for the words of encouragement that He has shared, from His heart to ours!
Tonight, I pray that you will truly find peace…in the arms of a loving, caring and merciful God and that your Wednesday will be truly blessed from above! Take care…have a great night and I will hope to be back with 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…
