Hello everyone! Happy Tuesday and a big 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 experience the love that Jesus has for you each day!
Well today, I have been sitting in a yard of smoke…yes you heard it right…smoke. I live in the Pacific Northwest and there have been fires all around us, due to the dry summer we’ve had; but what hope I cling to…knowing that God is in the midst of the smoke and fires that surround our area.
You know…just as I am looking out to a yard full of smoke; we can experience moments in our lives, when our circumstances become such a dense fog; that we find it difficult to experience the light of God’s presence. It seems like an overwhelming problem has blocked the light of God’s presence and placed us in darkness; but one thing I know for sure…when we keep pressing on through that dense fog and keep searching for the light of God’s presence, rather than giving into the darkness that is attempting to take over our lives; then we will begin to see a glimpse of light…shining brightly through the fog.
Today, as I was sitting in my office working, I began to get an eerie feeling, as the sun was now being hidden by the denseness of the smoke. As I was looking out to the smoke that had traveled into our area; my thoughts shifted, as to what it would be like to never experience the light of God’s presence each day.
You know…we live in times that seem to be getting worse; but yet we also live with hope because of the One who surrounds us each day. Even though we may not always see it that way, due to the circumstances that attempt to hide the light of God’s presence from us…God’s light is still there…only hidden for a short time.
The hope that we can cling to today…through all that we experience in this life…is just knowing that God is there for us. Even when He seems to be blocked from our view…He’s there and what a comfort to know that He’s in the background of our lives…working in a way that will once more allow His presence to shine freely within our lives.
Today, you may be going through a time in your life, when your circumstances have become a dense fog…blocking the light of God’s presence from you. No matter what you face and no matter how dark the situation…just know that the light of God’s presence, is much more powerful than the darkness that surrounds you and as you push your way through the denseness of that foggy circumstance; God will meet you there and His light will penetrate the denseness of that fog and once more become the light that can lead you away from darkness.
May God truly bless your day, with the light of His loving and powerful presence!
Blessings so much on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
