Hello everyone! Happy Thursday! Welcome today, to Moments Spent with God…through the Risen Hope Ministries! I pray that your day is going well and that you will truly feel the loving hand of God upon you, as you walk throughout your day…and that His presence will become very real and alive within you!
Isn’t it amazing how we can be standing in a room with many people and yet we can feel so alone and even distant from life itself? I remember a time in my own life, when I was feeling so alone…in the midst of recovering from one of many knee surgeries. As I laid in a bed in our living room, I began to think to myself…there could be 100 people in this room; but yet why would I still feel so alone? As I began to think on this more; God began to show me that those feelings were because I hadn’t allowed Him to fill up the emptiness or the empty voids that took place over time within my life. In other words, I had kept the empty rooms of my heart empty and lifeless.
You see…as I grew up, I went through so much loss…the loss of children...the loss of my right knee…the loss of many things that meant so much to me and I guess that I never really opened up those moments of loss to God…in a way, where He could step in and fill those empty moments with Himself.
Anyways…as I laid on the bed…starring out the door; I began to truly see how much I needed God to fill those empty spaces of my heart…and from there, I began to open myself up to Him and over time; these became the moments, when I truly made God my everything.
You know…the empty spaces of loss within the heart don’t have to remain empty…like an empty room in a home; when there is a God, who can move into those empty chambers of the heart and make us completely whole again.
The question I’m asking myself today; is why would we ever want to live with a loss and loneliness; that only keeps the heart wounded, when there is a God, who can move into those empty spaces and make those moments complete?
Today, we need the sunshine of God’s Holy Spirit, to become a refreshing breeze; that will blow within the empty spaces of the heart; where once there was darkness, due to much loss…and I know that once we allow God’s presence to enter these empty spaces of the heart; we will once more begin to feel the breath of new life within us.
No matter what you are facing today…or no matter what losses you have experienced within your life; just know that God longs so much to enter that emptiness within you and fill those empty spaces with a new life; that will take you out of the muck and mire of despair and once more fill your heart with new life. When we are willing to let go of everything but God; that is when life will once more breathe moments of peace, joy and happiness within us…and we will never be alone in life again.
Blessings on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
