Hello everyone! It’s so good to have you with me today, on Moments Spent with God! I pray that we all will truly receive something very special, from God’s heart to ours today…something that can carry us through the difficult moments of life.
Yesterday, I was talking with my brother on the phone…who has been going through so much with his health. While we were talking, he was telling me that someone at his church had taken the time to sit and talk with him after the service, as a means of encouraging him. From there, our conversation went in a different direction, as we talked on how we can sometimes feel tossed to the side, during difficult times like these…to the place where we feel as if no one really cares or understands what we are going through.
As we continued on with our conversation…we were also talking on how painful it was for me growing up because of all the knee problems I had experienced. These truly became the moments, when my friends walked out of my life. I could never understand why this happened…that is, until I got to be a little older. I came to see that if others haven’t experienced the difficult moments we face; then they just can’t understand the feelings of hurt and pain that goes through our hearts, minds and bodies.
Today, you may feel alone in your own world of problems. Maybe you are feeling as if others have left your side, at a time when you could use that support the most. Even though you may feel lost, in a world of your own…God is there.
I have come to see God as a very good friend because you see, while I was going through years of pain and deep heartache, He never once left my side and you ask me why…because He had already walked down His own difficult path of pain and heartache, which made it easy for Him to understand my path of pain and heartache.
You know…I remember a time, when I was going through one surgery after another. My husband had gone to work and I was doing my exercises for physical therapy and as I began, I bowed my head and began to cry and as I looked up to a picture of Jesus that hung over the fireplace, I began to pour my heart out to Him. I said to Him… “Lord, it’s bad enough that I have to keep going through these difficult times; but to be alone just makes it that much harder.” I would say that within a few minutes after talking with God, the phone began to ring and as I picked up the phone, someone had called to talk with me. I will never forget this time in my life because as I talked on the phone, I looked up to that picture over the fireplace and I once more knew that this was God’s way of caring for me.
No matter what you’re facing today, just know that you are never alone because I can say with all my heart; that there is a God, who is listening to you…feeling your pain and most of all…longing to love and care for you. Sometimes, we just need to talk with Him and pour our hearts out to Him. Once we can connect heart to heart with God; that is when I truly believe that He will reach back, to care for us.
Today, I pray that you too, will come to discover God as your very best friend…a friend that will never leave you nor forsake you!
Blessings on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
