Hello everyone and welcome today, to Moments Spent with God…through the Risen Hope Ministries! I am so happy to have you with me today and I pray that we all will truly discover a connection with God; that will help us to rise above any circumstance; that may be attempting to take us down.
Yesterday was quite the day for me! I started my day, by getting up around 6:40 and then I was back in my office by 7:30…ready to do my morning schedule. After leaving my office, it was time to prep some things for dinner; so I headed into the kitchen. I think by now, you are beginning to see the start of a busy day.
After cutting vegetables and cooking chicken…along with other things that needed to be done, I kept watching the clock…knowing that there was also a weight of work awaiting me for the day. I have to say; that even though I knew what was awaiting me, I kept going and ignored the feelings that Satan was attempting to take me down with.
One thing I have to say to you today; is through the busiest moments in that day, I truly felt the hand of God leading me…saying…go here Diane and let’s do this next. To some, they may think that Diane has lost it; but to Diane…she knows a God, who she is deeply connected with and I have to say that I would rather listen to His voice within my spirit; then a voice that would only lead me to a more mixed up day.
How many times do we become so caught up, in the busy moments of a day or a moment that is just plain out of control; that we end up following all the thoughts and feelings that can take us down and make us feel even more distant from God? We all have bad days and we all experience moments that can make life feel overwhelmed and frustrated; but I am finding more and more; that when we can just take a little time…collect our thoughts and open ourselves up to God; that peace can replace these moments that make life seem so out of control.
As I look back on all I went through this past Monday…I also see how God stepped in and helped me to accomplish everything that needed to be done and I truly believe that when we keep these moments deeply embedded within the heart; that they will help and encourage us, on days that can once more seem out of control.
No matter what you’re facing today and no matter how difficult it may seem…just rest in the arms of God and let Him take over and help you through the moments that seem to be too difficult for you to handle on your own. I believe that when we are willing to admit our weaknesses before God; that this will become the time, when He will take hold of our weaknesses and replace them with a strength that will once more cause us to stand and press on.
Blessings on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
