Hello everyone! Welcome to Moments Spent with God! I pray that your day is going well and that we all will truly experience something very special from God, as we spend these quiet moments alone with Him!
You know…yesterday morning, I was talking with my husband and I was saying to him; that there can be times, when I feel as if I’m in a world of my own with God. For most of my lifetime, I faced what seemed to be one painful moment after another. After finally coming through many surgeries and much heartache, I thought that the road through life would seem less bumpy; but that hasn’t been as true as I wished it could be.
I’ll tell you…there are times, when I look around me…knowing that other people are going through their own moments of affliction; but yet for some reason, I see my life so different from others. In other words…I see a life that has continually gone from one difficult moment…into another difficult moment, which can definitely make a person feel as if they are in a world of their own.
It seems that at that very moment, when I feel as if the pain and heartache I experience will become worthless moments in my life; God steps in and uses those moments for Him. I have found writing to be a great way of letting go of my feelings and a great way to truly connect with God. There have been times, where God allowed me to go through a brief moment of pain or heartache…just so I could write about it that same day. You see…what God’s doing; is allowing these painful times in my life, to bring me down to His level; so He can use these moments to encourage myself and others around me.
Isn’t it amazing how we can feel alone and abandoned, during difficult moments such as these; when all along…God is in these moments…working in the background of our lives; so tragedy can be turned into triumph.
Don’t we realize that God is still there, when the pain is just too much to bear and the deep heartache pierces our hearts like a knife? It seems like we become so caught up, in what’s happening in our lives and what is going wrong; that we draw the problems into a world of our own, while we unknowingly leave God out of our world.
I’m learning more and more…just how these overwhelming and painful moments, can make us feel so alone and destitute. It’s as if these overwhelming moments of trial begin to convince us that this is the way life will always be, rather than allowing God to show us what can come out of these difficult times.
Can you imagine what life would be like, if we would only allow God to use our trials, rather than sitting back and allowing them to abuse us? Today…we need to let go of the difficult moments that have unknowingly entered our world…moments that only keep us captivated, while abusing us emotionally and spiritually; so we can lay out the welcome mat for God to enter and become our world.
May God truly bless you and may you find Him to be everything you need in your life!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
