Hello everyone! I’m so happy to have you back with me, on “Moments Spent with God!” Talking about moments spent with God; I was sitting here…quietly listening to some music and thinking about what it is really like, to stand in the presence of a loving God.
I remember a time, when I felt so alone…in the midst of what seemed to be the most painful moment that I would ever have to go through in my life. Within my mind’s eye, I began to see a place within my heart, where I could be alone with God. Here I was, within my heart…setting up two chairs and just after doing so, I began to hear a knock on my hearts door and as I opened it…there was Jesus. He said…Diane, I just thought you could use someone to talk to; so I invited Him in and we sat for the longest time…talking heart to heart. To some, this may seem strange or there may even be someone who feels that Diane has lost it but today, I want to say that it was at my deepest darkest moment, when Jesus made a way for me to commune with Him and through those precious moments, I was made whole again.
Many times, I have pictured moments spent with God, as a time, when the light of God’s presence is shining all around me and while I’m in the presence of this powerful God, I know in my heart that no darkness can penetrate that light. I find these moments to be a time, when I am safe and sheltered away from the storms of life. What a comfort to know; that God’s presence can be a place to run to…a place, where we can escape the evil that is attempting to take us down.
You know…there’s nothing like being in the presence of God, while going through a difficult moment of affliction. God has a way of turning anxiety…worry and doubt, into moments of serene peace…a peace that can’t be described by this world’s standards.
Do you realize that when God allows a difficult trial to enter our lives; one of the reasons is because He wants to get our attention and show us how much He can love…comfort and keep us, during these difficult times? How many times have we compared the love and presence of God, to something we experience here on earth? Don’t we realize that standing in the presence of the Most High God; becomes a place of its own…a place where everything is at peace and where no evil is allowed to enter.
Since we know that God’s presence can be a place, where we can find refuge and be safe and sound, from the problems we face; then why is it that we take so long to run into the light of His powerful presence? One thing I have never been able to figure out; is why we choose to suffer needlessly, when we really don’t have to. You know…God made a way and He is that way; that can draw us away from the stress…anxiety and frustration of life. All we need to do is leave our problems behind and run in His direction. Once we are willing to do that; then we will find a peace and love that will truly become our place of refuge, until the storms have passed by.
May you truly find the light of God’s presence, to be very real in your life today!
Blessings on your day…
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
