Hello everyone...and a "Happy Thursday" to you, on this first day of August! Before we know it...we will be leaving summer behind, to enter a new season of Autumn...hard to believe!
As we walk through this new day; let us leave darkness behind...to step into the light, of not only a new day...but also the presence of God.
You know...it's so easy to get caught up in darkness. A circumstance comes our way and seems to take us by the hand and lead us onto a darkened path...where all that surrounds us is the dismal moments of pain and deep heartache; but when we choose to let go of these moments...and take hold of God; then He leads us into a light; that can truly dispel darkness.
I remember several times in the past, when I felt so caught up in darkness; but I found out with time that I had kept myself in the darkness of affliction; because of the way I was responding to the circumstance. Sometimes, we just don't realize how our actions can become a message that can either lead us out of these moments...or lead us deeper within these moments.
If we truly long to leave these dark and dismal moments of circumstance behind; then we need to relay a message to God through our actions; that we do not choose to remain in darkness...and one of the best ways that I have found to react in this way...is to keep pressing on...no matter what obstacle stands before us. When God sees the desire of our hearts...through action and not just word alone; then I KNOW that He will come and meet us there...and from there, He will take our hand and gently lead us in a direction that can help us leave darkness behind.
As we walk through another day...I pray that we will not succumb to the moments of darkness; but that we will continue to press on and search for the light of God's presence...a light that can illuminate these dark moments and set us free!
Have a great Thursday...and I pray that you will experience many blessings in your day...Diane!!
