Hello everyone and welcome back to “Moments Spent with God!” I hope that you had a very nice and very special Christmas! You know…now that Christmas is over; we can find that entering a new year can sometimes be difficult to face. Maybe some of you are living with chronic illness and pain or maybe some of you are living with uncertain moments, when it comes to your job and finances. No matter what it may be, we can feel as if these moments are entering the New Year with us, which can bring about a heavy heart.
I remember a time, when I was going through some very painful moments in my own life and it was around this time of the year. I remember looking down to the floor and saying to myself… “Diane, how are you ever going to get through these tough moments; that seem to have no end?” Even at a time, when I felt no hope, God entered my spirit and was reassuring me that everything would eventually turn out just fine. I have to admit; that at the time, I didn’t believe that because you see…I was too busy focusing on what was wrong, rather than the One, who was longing to make everything right…which He eventually did.
I don’t know about you but I like to take a few days…to a week and prepare myself to enter another new year with God. I truly believe that when we are willing to leave all the excess baggage behind and take hold of the One, who longs to walk us into new moments and new blessings; then that is just what we will experience, in the days to come.
You know…God never said that life would be easy but I have come to see that life can get easier, when we are truly connected to the One, who has the control stick in hand to our lives. We might as well face it people…we can’t walk through life alone. We need someone who can walk in front of us and become the mighty shield; that can defend us and keep us safe, from the blows of life.
Today, you may be feeling as if there is no hope. You may feel like nothing could ever get better; but I want you to know that when you are willing to let go of the hand that is leading you further into despair…to take hold of God’s mighty and powerful hand; then you will begin to see that you can face these uncertain moments and you will also find that you are never alone.
Life can feel very uncertain at times and we can find ourselves living with fear and dread, as we walk towards another new year; but now is not the time to focus on these feelings that only lead us to other problems; but rather, now is the time, to take hold of God’s hand and allow Him to walk us through these uncertain days ahead and I truly believe that when we start out the New Year in this way; then we will find ourselves in sync with God, rather than the problems that have attempted to weigh us down and have control over our lives.
Have a great day & God bless!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
