Hello everyone! It’s good to be back with you, on “Moments Spent with God!” I hope you’re having a great day and that you are truly experiencing a special touch from God today!
You know…I just love these special moments that I spend with God! What a great way to take a break in the day and be alone with a God, who loves us so much! Today, I was thinking back to the talk I had with God a couple of nights ago. If you don’t know this already…I just love to end my day, by dimming the lights in my office, while I spend some quiet moments alone with God, before going to bed. In fact, I have found my talks with God to be a time to relax and share my heart with the best friend I could ever have. You know…there may be times, when I talk with Him about my day or maybe something that is weighing heavy on my heart. No matter what it is…God is the best One and the only One that I have found, to share my heart with.
I remember a day, when everything seemed to be going wrong. By time I went to bed, I felt like the weight of the world was on my shoulders. As I went in my office…to lie down on the daybed, I stopped in my tracks and said to myself… “Diane, you have all evening to talk this out with God;” so I began to settle back and pour my heart out to God. As I looked at His pictures all over my office walls, I began to feel close to God and it seemed like within no time, the weight that was taking me down, was now melting off my shoulders. From there, I went to bed and slept all night.
How many times, do we ask God to take something from us…only to run back to the wallowing hole and reconnect with a problem that only brings us more pain and heartache? I remember a time, when I used to do that a lot and there were even times, when I would be up half of the night…just worrying about my problem; but now, I have come to see that I can put my problems on God because I know He can handle them much better than me.
You know…what a better way to know God even more, then to sit in the quietness of a day or evening and just get everything off of our chest and hand it over to God. One thing I can say for sure; is that God will never walk away from us and He will even accept us for who we are…even if we feel a wreck, from a very difficult day. One thing I really like; is that God is available to me anytime and His arms are wide open, for me to walk into, even in the middle of the night…on the weekends and even during holidays. Another great thing that I love about talking with God; is when I sit quiet in His presence; He has a way of speaking through my thoughts and directly to my heart, which is the best experience ever. Now after knowing all of this…why would we ever want to spend time with a problem that only brings us grief, when we could just sit back and have a good talk, with an old friend?
There is an old hymn that goes like this… “What a friend we have in Jesus, all our sins and griefs to bear! What a privilege to carry, everything to God in prayer! Oh, what peace we often forfeit, Oh, what needless pain we bear; all because we do not carry, everything to God in prayer!” How many sleepless nights are we going to experience and how many moments of needless pain are we going to bear, before we decide to give it all to Jesus?
May we all find God to be the greatest friend to turn to, during the difficult times of life!
Blessings on your day…
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
