Hello everyone! Happy Wednesday and a big welcome to Moments Spent with God…through the Risen Hope Ministries! I pray that your day is going well and that you will truly find God to be very real, as you walk throughout your day!
Did you know that God sent you here today, for a specific reason? It wasn’t to meet me; but rather, it was so you could meet Him. You see…I truly believe that one of God’s ways of loving us; is to walk us down paths; that can lead us to words…thoughts and even music that can become a message from His heart to ours…letting us know that He is truly with us…especially while facing very difficult times.
In my own life, I have truly experienced God’s love…even at times, when I thought He had abandoned me; for He was the one, who allowed me to open up my Bible…just to the right verse…the verse that would give me comfort and sustain me, through the overwhelming moments of deep heartache.
You know…I remember a time, when I was at rock bottom. I thought for sure that God had walked away from my life for good. I was so low at the time; that I couldn’t picture anyone wanting to be with me…especially God.
Later that day, as I was sitting to myself; I remember the heaviness that weighed me down…almost to the place, where I couldn’t even speak. As tears began to flow quickly down my cheeks…a song came to my thoughts…one that I had never heard before. In fact, it was as if I had already known the song, as I began to sing the words that quickly came to my thoughts. As I was singing the song, it was as if God was asking me to just listen to each word…and as I did that, I began to feel as if these words were coming down from the heavens…from God’s heart to mine. I sat in amazement, as to what was happening and continued to sing and listen to each word that came to my thoughts. By the time I had left the room…the heaviness that had weighed me down had been lifted from me and I began to feel relief and an overwhelming peace began to fill and flood my heart.
To some, they may read my story and think I’m crazy; but one thing I do know…a powerful God can make Himself known in any way He chooses…and I truly believe that this is His way of saying to us… “I love you and I’m here…just for you!”
Never take for granted, the Bible verses God leads you to…or the writings or songs that come your way; because I believe with all my heart; that when we listen closely…a message will come forth…a message of love, from God’s heart to ours.
You know…it’s been many years now, since I experienced those beautiful songs that came to my thoughts and even as I look back and try to remember the songs…it’s as if they have disappeared into thin air. I guess that those songs were only meant, for that specific moment in time.
Today, I pray that we will find the strength through God, to walk beyond the problems we face; that we may truly experience the loving presence of a God, who longs so much to care for us!
Blessings on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
