Hello everyone...and a very happy and blessed Thursday to you! I truly hope that your day is off to a good start!
This morning, I would like to start out with a question that the Lord put on my heart; before going to bed last night. "We seem to stop and focus on how bad a circumstance is; but do we stop to think on how much worse those moments could have been, without Christ being there?"
Take a look at this picture, to your left. What would this wooded area look like, without the sunshine coming through the trees. I would say that we wouldn't be able to see the trees and the beautiful moss that's covering the floor of this forest. In a similar way...can you imagine how a darkened moment would be in our lives, if the light of God's presence wasn't there for us.
When I think on this question that God placed on my mind last night...I see a pit of destruction below us...but at the same time, I see where God's almighty arms are holding us above defeat. We may still experience some of the effects, of what is happening around us; but we aren't experiencing the extreme...because God is keeping us from these moments; so the next time you feel as if life is at it's very worst...think on what it would be like, if God wasn't there to sustain you...and this will give you hope...knowing that God does have everything under His control. Remember...focus on God, rather than the darkness that's surrounding you...and the light of His awesome presence will be there for you...AMEN!!
Have a very blessed day...and I pray that you will come to experience a love that will never let go of you! See you this evening!
It's Always & Only Because of Him...
