Hello everyone! Welcome back to Moments Spent with God! I am so glad you decided to come and join me today! I truly look forward to these precious moments we spend together with God…knowing that He has the answers that can bring peace, while facing the difficult moments of trial.
Do we realize that every new day becomes a new page in our book of life; that tells the story of what God has destined for our lives? As we walk through each new day with God, days eventually take us into months that become chapters; that tell a story over time, of the life we once lived.
If I was to look back on the story of my life, I see pages that held happy moments and a lot of heartbreaking moments too but these stories we live out eventually become used by others; that they too may be encouraged, as they live out their own story.
Yesterday, as I was beginning an early morning of work...shopping…cooking and online work, I began to look back throughout the moments of my day and I began to see how God was truly writing the story for the day. As I followed the thoughts and words that flowed throughout my spirit, I began to live them out and by the end of the day; I could see where the hand of God had taken me.
You know…if we were to slow down and read back on some of the chapters of our lives, I’m sure that we would see how God worked in ways that we never expected. I bet you didn’t know this but my idea for my life, was to be a nurse on the mission field. Seemed like every time I tried to write my own story, of what I thought life was supposed to be, it ended up being a closed book before me.
Never did I ever think that God would call me to be an author and encourage people in need. If you were to look back on some of the pages of my life, you would see a young girl who never did well in school and only wanted second best for her life; but that was only because I was trying to write my own story. Once I handed the pen over to God and let Him write the story for me, I began to follow through, with what God was longing for me to live out, on each page of the book of my life.
How many times do we try to make our own lives work, in the way we feel is best. The only thing about that; is that we only make mistakes and find ourselves going back and beginning again. If we could just follow God…one page at a time and know what He has for our lives; then everything would fall into place, as it was meant to be.
As I look at the stories of my life, I see that I could reach the end of the book any day now, as we are living in the end times; but the hope I have, is that when this book of my life comes to an end…a new one will begin. The only thing different with this new book; is that it will continue for all of eternity.
Following through with God, is the only way to travel through life and my prayer today is that we will read the pages that God has already mapped out for our lives; that we may come to see what God truly has in store for each one of us.
Blessings on your day…
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
