Hello everyone! I am so happy to have you here with me, on Moments Spent with God! I pray that your day is going well and that we all will leave this time together, with a piece of hope that can sustain us and keep us pressing on…especially during the difficult times!
You know…while facing difficult moments of adversity; there can be times when we find it difficult to rise above these trials we face. How many times have we threatened to throw in the towel and walk away?
The other day was one of those days for me, when it seemed like once again, everything was going wrong. I began to feel buried by my workload and it seemed like Satan was doing everything he could to take me down. Even though I couldn’t see the light of day, during these overwhelming moments; I knew that I just needed a new start…a time, when God could pick up the broken pieces and bring me back to where I had been with Him.
Today, as I’ve been listening to some good inspirational music, I was given a reminder by God and that reminder told me; that it’s not the moments of failure that we should focus on but instead; we should focus on rising above these difficult times. You know…for each time, we choose to rise above the difficult moments in our lives; these also become the moments, when we prove Satan wrong.
You know…I just love it, when God steps in and stomps evil to the ground! I don’t know how you feel today; but I need my God, for every second…minute and hour of the day because these battles that come my way are too fierce for me to fight alone.
I have learned so much from God over the years; but one thing He has taught me; is that there is a place, where we can rise above these difficult moments…a place, where we can be with God, rather than our problems. You ask me…how do I get to this place in my life? Well…I have learned that rising above despair means that we become more focused and in tune with the power of God, rather than our weaknesses. When our hearts can praise God, even in the midst of a very difficult battle; then as our hearts are being lifted up to Him…our whole self is also lifted up to a place, where we are no longer in tune with our problems.
I remember a time, when I continually felt as though I was face to face with a lot of deep heartache and pain. It seemed like all I experienced were the dark and dreary clouds of my circumstances; but then God reminded me that I didn’t have to allow these moments to overtake me. He showed me that there was a heavenly realm…higher than any of my problems…a place where I could meet and commune with a God of eternal peace.
You know…we may not be able to escape our problems, until God makes all things new again but at the same time, we don’t have to allow them to have control over our lives. There is a place of perfect peace and it’s so near to the heart of God and once you have experienced His calming peace, in the midst of your storm; I guarantee…you’ll never be the same again.
Blessings on your day…
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
