Hello everyone! Well here we are again…together on “Moments Spent with God!” I hope that you are truly being blessed by these writings because I definitely am and I just love this time; that I spend alone with God each day.
Today, I was thinking about how it can feel, when everything around us seems to have crumbled to the ground. We can be standing, in what we feel is the best life ever, until something comes along and shakes up our world, while everything around us begins to crumble flat to the ground. You know…no matter how much rubble we walk through in this life, isn’t it good to know that God is still there…standing in the midst of that rubble.
Lately, I have experienced moments that have changed drastically in my life and I’ll tell you…it’s not always easy to move on, when a piece of life gets shifted, from one place to another. Seems like we go through life, for the longest time…experiencing great moments; that we feel will never come to an end and then…out of thin air, our world seems to take a turn…a turn that may bring more pain or deep heartache into our lives, which can seem like a major adjustment.
One thing I’ve been thinking of, while writing you today; is that sometimes, we just need to go with the flow, instead of fighting the situation and move on, to the new place that God has already prepared for us. This new place in life may feel at first, as though nothing can be any better, than what we first experienced but I think that if we were to look at life’s little experiences as stepping stones; then we would begin to see that these little experiences in life can take us further in God’s direction.
When Satan brings our world to the ground, we can experience a sadness that just doesn’t want to go away. We know that with each new day; life will take us one step further away from the pain in our lives but what do we do, until that moment arrives? Today, God was reminding me to bury myself in Him, where we can attach ourselves to His peace…His strength and most of all, His compassionate love. I think that sometimes, we just have our connections wrong. Instead of being connected to a God, who can bring comfort and a sustaining spirit within us; we seem to keep ourselves closely connected, with the side effects of our problems, which only makes the burden seem heavier to bear.
Lately, I have found that the best thing for a hurting heart, is to commune with God. There’s something about connecting deeply with Him; that seems to make every hurtful thought leave the mind and heart. When we can share our needs with God and become engulfed, within His powerful word, as we sit within His loving presence; then the light of His presence alone, will illuminate the dark moments that seem to make us feel hopeless and alone.
Maybe today, we need to just sit in God’s presence, rather than viewing the rubble that has fallen down around us. I think that if we could just take some moments, to leave our world of trouble behind…to enter God’s world of peace; then we would come to see that no matter what may make us feel defeated; these moments are only temporary, until a powerful God steps in and mends what’s been broken within our lives.
Have a great day & God bless! I hope to see you again tomorrow, as we share some moments spent with God!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
