Hello everyone! It’s so good to have you back with me, on Moments Spent with God! Today, my prayer is that we will continue to find that connection with God; that will keep us above the difficulties of this life.
Today, as I have been sitting here in my office…spending some quiet moments alone with God, I was thinking on my life and how God has always been there to pick up the broken pieces. As I’ve been thinking on this, I began to visualize a God that is always walking close beside me…a God, who watches my every move and where I’m headed in life. I see Him as a God, who looks down the path I’m on; to see what obstacles may be approaching me. The God I serve has become my very best friend and I truly believe that even when something goes wrong; He’s in the background…picking up the pieces, while working to make things new again within my life.
You know…recently, I have experienced times of struggle; but I truly know that He is there for me and that He isn’t going to abandon me. God has now become the One I run to…to share my heart with, along with the broken moments that I just can’t fix on my own. There have been times, when I have handed a need over to God and have seen Him work in ways that I never expected and that all took place because I truly handed it all over to Him.
If we could just see God as a close companion…One that is always watching out for us; then I’m sure that we would always feel that touch; that can take us above these painful moments we experience.
As I look back on my life, I remember moments when I suffered so needlessly and that was because I allowed my anger and the painful moments of the past, to become roadblocks to my heart, where I remained connected to the problem, rather than welcoming God into my heart of problems. It was as though I wanted God to rescue me but I just couldn’t find the strength to let go of my problems.
How many times do we cry out to God and say… “Where are you?” We cry and beg Him to help us, until there are no more tears to cry; but yet we still hold tightly to our problems. How is it that we find it so difficult to turn a weak problem over to a strong God? Could it be that the problem has convinced us that nothing could be great enough, to release us from these difficult moments? If so, then we need to realize that we are being deceived.
If we could only let go of the problem that is leading us further into despair and take hold of the One, who can walk us out of these difficult moments; then we would have a true and lasting peace within our hearts…a peace that would always be a reminder to us; that God is in the background of our lives…always working to mend what has been broken by evil.
May you truly find the strength to let go and let God take over!
Blessings on your day…
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
