Good evening everyone! I hope you’re enjoying your evening! As I sit here tonight and look out my office window…it’s actually a beautiful night…even though it’s raining outside. The yard light is glistening through the branches on the trees…making each droplet of water appear to be like jewels on the branches. In fact, when I look at the trees long enough, it kind of reminds me of Christmas.
Have you ever wondered if these droplets of rain could be tears coming from God? Quite a while back, I wrote a poem that was published and it’s titled, “God’s Tears.” A little of it goes like this…”Dew drops fall from heaven, His sweet tears water each growing thing; tears that have that special touch, for the flowers to bloom in the spring. Dark clouds form, and the rain falls as He weeps; is He lonely and forgotten and hurt, while a world is too busy or sleeps. Snow begins to fall, His frozen tears cause a deep sleep to cover the land; it’s His blanket of frozen tears, that keeps all creatures safe in His hand.”
As I look back on this day, I see where I experienced unexpected moments of pain and weakness in my body. I see a truck that still hasn’t been fixed and other little things that have come into the day. Now as I look out my window, I often wonder if God is crying for me or with me. Is He showing Himself to be a loving and compassionate God, through each tear that falls from the heavens? I don’t know for sure but somehow, I’m feeling a connection with God…a connection that makes me feel as if He is saying...even though life may seem to be a mess right now…I am with you and I will never leave your side.
You know…for some reason, I have always been able to connect with God through nature. When I see the clouds passing by or the colors change in the sky…I truly feel that this is His way of making Himself known to me. And when I feel the wind upon my face…I feel as if His breath is coming down upon me, which is one of the best feelings.
Today may have been an off day…with the ups and downs and challenges of life; but as I sit here this evening, I am being renewed in the presence of a God, who I believe is revealing Himself to me. Others may see tonight, as another rainy night; but after today, I see this evening as one of the most beautiful and peace-filled evenings…one that makes me feel distant from the cares of the day, while being showered on, by a God that is truly full of love and compassion.
How could I ask for more, at the end of a trying day; then to know that God is still there for me? I thank God; that He knows my heart so well; that He would bend down from the heavens, to just spend a few quiet moments with me.
Isn’t it amazing how we can get so caught up in a day; that we completely bypass a God, who truly longs to reveal Himself to us? I love you Jesus! Thanks for not only allowing me to spend time with my readers…but thank you, for taking the time to care for me, in such a loving way!
I have truly enjoyed this time with you all tonight! It’s so amazing how the presence of God can calm the wildest storms in our lives! I pray that you all will have a very special night and that you will truly experience God, in the same way I have tonight!
Blessings on your night!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
