Hello everyone! Happy Thursday! Welcome today to Moments Spent with God…through the Risen Hope Ministries! I am so glad that God led you here today and my prayer is that He will truly touch your heart in a very special way…a way that will truly be etched within the heart!
You know…sometimes, a person just needs to take a little time out of a busy schedule and think back to all that God has done for them. Little reminders like this can take a person back to a time, when God was faithful…a time, when God truly left His mark on their life…and that’s what I’m doing right now…thinking back to the moments that God and I shared…heart to heart.
I love God with all my heart and one of the reasons I love Him so; is because there was a time in my life, when I felt as if I was going under for the final time. Nothing looked good and there was no glimpse of light to give me hope…and then one day, a powerful God stepped in and began to leave His mark upon my life…bit by bit, until He brought me out of the depths of my despair. What a God! He brings tears to my heart because I can never thank Him enough, for the love He has shown me, over and over again!
Today, are you facing a tough time in your life? Do you only feel darkness around you? No light of hope? I can truly say that I understand that kind of heart and let me encourage you today; that God has not forgotten you. I know it’s not always easy but try to look beyond these discouraging moments and look for the footprints that God is leaving behind for you…footprints that will give you hope and let you know that He is there with you.
I remember a time, when I didn’t know if I was going to make it through all the pain…depression and brokenness in my life. One day, as I sat to myself…I found it even difficult to pray. There was nothing left to this heart of mine…only a numbing feeling; that made me feel empty. As I bowed my head, I began to cry out to God, with tears that became a language that only He seemed to understand. I don’t know how to explain it to you; but from that moment on, I began to sing songs that had never been published, with words that I had never heard before. As I would sing them; it was as if God wanted me to listen to the words, more than anything…and as I began to focus on each word I spoke, I began to see that it was God’s way of speaking to my heart. Through each spoken word, He was relaying a message to me…letting me know that He was with me and that He had not forgotten me, while other words began to fill my heart, with a glimpse of hope. If you were to ask me about these songs today…I wouldn’t even know where to begin because I truly believe that He had used those words and that melody, at a time when I needed it the most…and moments like these have truly left a mark on my heart that can never be erased.
Today, you may be struggling with a problem that seems as though it will never get better. You may even wonder where God is. Maybe you need to look beyond the pain, for His presence. I know that when we let go and look for God, in the midst of it all; that we will begin to truly experience His loving and powerful presence in our lives. Open yourself up to God today and let Him leave a mark on your life; that will change you forever.
Blessings on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
