Hello everyone! I’m so glad you took a little time out of your day to visit me, on “Moments Spent with God!” My prayer for you today; is that you will find a piece of hope to hold onto, while facing the difficult moments in your life.
You know…how is it that we always seem to look for the things that can suffice the pain we’re going through in our lives, when we already have someone, who can satisfy our every need? It seems like we always need to take hold of something that can bring happiness our way…especially during the tough times. There are some who turn to food, while others find shopping helps to fill the empty voids in their lives…and there are even others, who turn to drugs and alcohol. Have we forgotten that these things we reach out to only bring about a temporary form of happiness? After the food has been eaten and the things we bought have become old to the eye, we seem to find that the problem still remains.
I remember a time in my life, while I was beginning to face some awful memories of the past; that I began to enter a world of my own…a world where I sat in the warmth of dimmed lights, while I made our home a shelter, where I could make food seem like a party. When I did go out, all I wanted was something new in the home, to make life seem different. Even as I tried to use these things to fill the empty voids that came about through many years of pain and heartache, I came to see that they never truly satisfied my hurting soul…and they never made the problem disappear.
One thing I have truly learned in my life and that is what real love is. Growing up in a home that only displayed an artificial form of love, made we feel as if that was all life was about; but later, I came to experience a love that could step in and take the empty voids of my life and fill them up completely, to a place where every need was truly satisfied within my soul.
Sometimes I wonder why we ignore God and turn to artificial ways of sufficing the deep embedded pain that lives within our hearts. Don’t we realize that nothing…and I mean nothing, can satisfy our soul, like a God who understands our every need? I guess that’s why I enjoy my writing so much! When I can tap into the presence of One so powerful…loving and true; then I begin to experience not only God’s perfect love but I begin to feel as if He has entered my spirit and we are as one. I don’t know about you; but I have never been able to find any other way that can permanently satisfy my soul, in the way that God can.
Today, you may be experiencing some tough times in your life and while you are going through these moments, maybe you are reaching out to other things that you feel will mask the hurt that just doesn’t seem to go away. Let me encourage you today, to turn to God. When a person seeks God with all their heart and is willing to open their hearts door and lay out the welcome mat for Him to enter; then I know…I know…I know…that He will enter and He will give you a peace that can become the true remedy for a hurting heart and soul.
May God truly bless you and fill you with His presence, in a way that will help you to see; that God is all you need!
Blessing on your day…
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
