Hello everyone! Welcome…welcome…welcome, to Moments Spent with God! I am so glad that you have come to join me today, as we step into the presence of a God, who is our true source of everything…a God who loves us so very much!
Have you ever had a moment in your day, when you felt something nudging you along? Maybe an idea came into your thoughts; that wasn’t there before or maybe you felt as though someone was walking you through your day, as everything began to fall into its rightful place. I truly believe that these are the moments, when we experience the loving touch of God.
I will never forget the time, when I was just coming out of a lot of my pain and deep heartache. I knew that God was walking me down a new path because I began to experience something special…something that I had never ever experienced before in my life.
I would say that I was in my kitchen at the time, when a feeling began to overwhelm me, with thoughts racing through my head. This feeling was so overwhelming that I had to grab a pen and a piece of paper and write these thoughts down. At the beginning, these thoughts became poetic and from there, they went into other writings and devotionals.
As time passed, the thoughts became so frequent that I started putting ink pens in all the rooms of our home. Over time, I have written on napkins in my kitchen…Kleenex and toilet tissue in our bathroom, along with other scraps of paper; that I could get my hands on.
To some, they may think that I have lost it; but I’m here to let you know that these thoughts are the still small voice, of a loving and powerful God. Even as I write you now…my fingers glide quickly across the keyboard, as God and I work together, to encourage others in need.
You see…I could never do what I’m doing without God. Some of you may not know this but in school, I did very poorly. I have to tell you today; that my education for writing came from long years of pain and deep heartache. I have come to see that the one, who feels the most unworthy in life, becomes the one who is worth everything to God.
Today, you may be going through an ongoing illness, with chronic pain or you may feel as though you can’t do anything right in life; but I’m here to let you know that God can work even more, with this kind of person because of the humbleness that comes through pain, illness and deep heartache.
There can be times, when the things we experience in life can make us feel like a piece of nothing. We can begin to have thoughts of giving up because we feel that nothing will ever change and nothing will ever get better; but I’m here to let you know that if God could work through the struggles of my own life; then He is more than capable of doing the same for you.
One thing that I would like to encourage you with today is to never give up. As I look back on my life and the many moments I wanted to quit and throw in the towel; I’m so glad that I never did because if I would’ve quit in life; then I wouldn’t be experiencing the complete fullness, of what God had planned since my birth…so keep pressing on…keep focusing on God…keep breathing and most of all, never give up.
Blessings on your day…
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
