Hello everyone! Welcome today, to Moments Spent with God! I am so happy that you came for a visit and my prayer today; is that God will truly touch our hearts with something very special…something that will draw us closer to Him and further away from the problems we may be facing.
Some of you may have noticed that I didn’t post a writing yesterday and that was because I was going through a tough day. I have days…just like you, when my chronic pain or blood pressure reaches an all-time high. Also lately, I have been recovering from a few issues dealing with my past, which hasn’t helped at times…but it’s a great comfort to know that God is there…walking through every broken moment with me.
Today, as I have been reflecting on how far God has brought me, within the past 24-48 hours, I see a God who truly cares for His own. I know I have said this before; but God is my closest friend. He understands every part of me…and even with my weaknesses; He accepts me for who I am. God is with me…every second and every minute of the day and night and will not judge me or condemn me; but will listen to my heart and will hold me, with a love that continually keeps me suspended above total despair.
I don’t know about you; but I need God all the time. It doesn’t matter if I wear the title “author” or if I am the head a ministry; those things can only exist and be a part of my life, when God is in it all.
Today, can we say; that we truly know how much God cares for us? It seems like God gets blamed for all the wrong that enters our lives. How is it that we can’t see and at least try to understand His ways? I remember many times in my life, when I would cry out and ask God repeatedly… “Why are you hurting me…why do I have to go through such deep heartache and pain and when will it stop?” I came to see that while I was asking these questions; He was at work…only in a different way; then what I had expected. To this day…I continue to see more and more of the reasons unfold, for each broken piece of my past. In fact, one day, I caught myself saying to God… “Remember Lord, when I asked the questions why?” “Well…now I know the reasons why.”
You know…I think that we just get too caught up in our problems and how we feel God will resolve them; that we completely bypass His true will and desires for our lives, which only takes us to an all-time low…and once we have reached this place in life; then we find that it’s harder to continue on.
Today, we need to stop walking ahead of God and start anew, by walking in sync with Him. I believe that when we walk side by side with God; then we will experience a connection that will help us to understand His ways even more.
No matter what I’ve been through…or no matter what I may continue to go through in my life, I have truly come to see God, as someone I can trust with my life…more than anyone I know…and it’s a good feeling…especially after everything I have walked through in my life.
No matter what you’re experiencing today…turn to God. Even though He may allow you to walk down some crooked paths; He will be there to walk those crooked paths with you and once the trial has come to an end…I know that He will make every crooked path straight…just for you.
Blessings on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
