Hello everyone! Welcome today, to my daily writing…Moments Spent with God! My prayer today, is that God will truly touch us all in a very special way…a way that will keep us high above the problems that may be surrounding us right now.
The past few days have been some tough ones for me. I have to tell you…people think that serving God is an easy job; but I’m here to tell you that it can be a very difficult job. In fact, it seems as though each day that draws closer to the very end; is filled with battles that can sometimes seem so out of control.
You know, while I was sitting here in my office today, I was thinking on one thing and that is this…how is it that we easily find ourselves turning to God with anger and hurt, during the difficult times…thinking that He doesn’t love us anymore? Instead, have we ever considered asking God…“What are you up to?” Do you know that whatever He allows within our lives has already been planned and fashioned by Him? In fact, He not only knows what is going to enter our lives; but He also knows the outcome and how we will eventually walk out of these difficult moments.
When I was going through counseling for sexual abuse, I remember one difficult time I had, when it came to figuring out why God even allowed these painful moments into my life. After longs days of heartache…followed by many questions, I came to see that God doesn’t control peoples choices but He does use them…and that’s how He comes out victorious. In other words…even though wrong was done to me...and a bad choice was made; God took what seemed to be failure and defeat within my life and has now used it through this ministry…and this is where Satan is defeated instead of me and God.
You know…it’s not always easy to understand what we walk through in life and most of all…it’s not always easy to walk down these difficult paths. In fact, some of these paths can seem long and endless; but we must remember; that God does know what He’s up to…for He had everything planned for our lives, even before we took our first breath.
Today, it wasn’t easy for me to come online and share my thoughts and feelings; but I somehow knew that God wanted me to share my heart with you today. In the fifteen years that I have been writing, I have come to see that this special gift is not only being used by God to encourage others; but that these words…from God’s heart to mine can become a powerful weapon, to show evil that God nor I will not stand for what he is attempting to do within my life.
No matter what you may be facing today, I would like to encourage you and let you know first; that God loves you so very much! At the moment, when you feel as if you have been backed up against a wall…that can make you feel as if defeat will overtake you, just know that God knows what He’s doing and what He’s up to.
Blessings on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
