Hello everyone! I would like welcome you to Moments Spent with God! I pray that as we spend these special moments alone with God today; that His words will truly touch our souls…minds and spirits, in a very real way!
You know…this time in my day has become one of my special moments because as I write, I relax and truly find God in a very peaceful way. His presence is what sooths my mind and takes me to a different realm, where there are no cares or worries from the day.
I remember a time in my life, when the deep heartache I was experiencing at the time, would make me feel so alone. I’ll tell you what…there could have been 100 people in my room at the time; but yet, I would still feel so alone. For the longest time, I wondered why I felt that way, until I discovered that the loneliness was because I needed someone who could fill all the empty voids in my life…the empty voids that came about, through loss and deep heartache.
Over time, I came to see that I didn’t need anyone but God and ever since, He has become the best friend I could ever have because you see…He not only filled the emptiness within me but He became my everything and when you have everything you need; then the loneliness goes away and peace takes its place.
Life can truly take us down some lonely paths. We can feel as if our circumstances have stripped us of everything in our lives. When friends and loved ones don’t always understand what we are feeling or what we may be going through; then the road ahead can make us feel so alone, which only makes the circumstances we’re facing, feel that much more difficult.
There’s an old hymn and a few of the lyrics go like this… “There's not a friend like the lowly Jesus; no not one, no not one. None else could heal all our soul's diseases; no not one, no not one. Jesus knows all about our struggles; He will guide till the day is done. There's not a friend like the lowly Jesus; no not one, no not one.”
You know…people can say that they care…and they probably do; but no one can truly look deep within the heart and feel the pain that we are experiencing, except for the One who created us. He can read every painful feeling that has been etched upon our hearts, without us even speaking one word and He is the only One, who holds the true remedy for every painful burden we carry.
There was a time in my life, when I would long so much, for someone to just understand what I was going through and then the day came…which I will never forget, when God knocked on my hearts door and spiritually came in and pulled up a chair within the heart. There were times, when I knew He was there…but in a silent way because you see, He was showing me that He was there just for me and He not only listened to every word I said to Him but He was there to let me know He understood…and this is one reason why He’s become my best friend.
Why do we choose to walk alone, while experiencing the painful moments in our lives, when there is a God, who longs to be a good friend...someone who will listen to our every thought and feeling. Today, we need to spiritually open our hearts door to God, and I guarantee that once you welcome Him into the painful moments of your life, you will never be the same again.
May God always be there for you…no matter what you may be facing!
Blessings on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
