Hello everyone…welcome to “Moments Spent with God!” I am so happy that you came for a visit today! I love so much, the precious moments spent with God but I love it even more, when you are here, sharing these precious moments with me!
As we begin today, I just want to tell you that Jesus loves you so much! To me…this is a message that never grows old. Just think…His loves for us is so deep; that one day…many, many years ago, He went to an old rugged cross and opened His arms up on that cross…just to say… “I love you and I forgive you.”
As I’m writing to you right now…I’m sure that there are many, who are going through times that just seem so overwhelming and out of control. Maybe you are facing surgery…chronic illness and pain or maybe you lost your job and you don’t know how you’re going to make ends meet or maybe you are grieving over the loss of a loved one or friend. No matter what your need may be; let me tell you today; that I know a God, who will be there for you, during your darkest hour.
I remember a time in my life, when I faced a deep depression. Everything that once brought light and life to me was now becoming an ongoing time of darkness. As I walked down this dark and dreary path, the flowers that once grew along my path had now turned into dead and ugly weeds. Even as I looked down the pathway, I just couldn’t see any glimpse of hope headed my way. This time of depression had taken such a toll on my mind and heart; that I found myself sitting on the floor…looking up to a bed that needed to be made; but never really knowing how I would ever find the strength to make it. Never did I know; that this was the beginning of a new life…a life that would completely turn around into something I never would have imagined.
Seems like we all have our struggles in this life. While some have it easier…others seem to feel, as if they have had it all dumped on them. In fact, this is the way I felt, when I was growing up. While my brothers and sister had it easy in life…I struggled through everything that came my way.
No matter what I’ve been through, I came to know a God, who longed to show His great love to me. His words and truth became arms of compassion; that held me and kept me from falling into total destruction. No matter how bad it got, God always seemed to have a way of stepping in and turning every bad situation around, into something of His very best.
Today, you may be walking down a path that looks similar to the one I once traveled. You may wonder when the light will ever penetrate these dark and dismal moments of affliction. Let me give you a piece of hope to hold to today. Hold tightly to the truth, of what God’s word says; that He will never leave you nor forsake you. Maybe you haven’t found the end of what seems to be an endless night of affliction; but just remember one thing…that path that you are on has to lead you back into the sunshine of God’s richest blessings…but until that moment comes, just know that God’s got you and He will never let go.
Many blessings on your day…God bless!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
