Hello everyone and welcome back to “Moments Spent with God!” Did you know that I am so happy to have you here with me today? Yes I am! My prayer today; is that God will truly enter each word I write; that we all may be blessed, in a way that will draw us even closer to His loving presence!
Yesterday, if you read my “Dear Reader” section on the front page of the website, you probably remember me mentioning that my day definitely started, by experiencing everything that could have gone wrong. I have no doubt in my mind; that Satan was coming at me full force.
It all started yesterday morning, when the toilet in our bathroom got clogged. Here I am…with only so much time to get around and begin my day online and I’m standing there, with a problem that wasn’t going to correct itself anytime soon. To top that off, everything I touched seemed to fall to the floor and nothing…I mean nothing was coming together…but through it all, I kept going, even though I felt like climbing to the highest mountain to scream…lol.
One thing I was reminded of, while in the midst of this chaos, was to not let these moments take me down; but rather, to give everything over to a God, who could do much more than me. As I stood in our bathroom…thinking about this, I began to ask God to take everything and work it out for me. For some reason; that didn’t seem to work the first time around; so I bowed my head and said… “Lord, would you just hold me while I cry?” As I humbled myself completely before God and made myself powerless, so He could be all powerful, everything began to come together and in no time, the rough and rugged moments of my day had come to an end.
You know…one thing that God showed me yesterday; is that He has our days planned and we don’t always understand why so many things go wrong and so little gets accomplished but I did find out through this experience; that even though everything in my day was so out of sort…it somehow came together and everything that needed to be done got done.
Today, I have truly come to see how my God is so much greater than these weak moments we fall prey to. Isn’t it amazing how these moments of weakness can upset us…frustrate us and even make us feel hopeless, when all along…they are nothing, to this powerful God we serve.
If we could only take a few moments from the chaos of our day and just let God hold us while we cry; then I know that He would wipe the tears from our eyes and help us to begin all over again. Yesterday I learned; that we truly need to fall humbly before the One, who can do all things and truly believe that we are nothing in His powerful presence. When we are willing to allow God to be greater than these weak moments of circumstance; that is when His power will take over and make everything fresh and new again.
Today, I pray that we all will begin our day with God and allow Him to take us above these moments that attempt to take us down.
Have a great day with God...
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
