Good evening everyone! I hope you're enjoying your Friday night! For me...the pain has taken another turn, as I am hurting pretty bad tonight. You know...it's not always easy to have several good days, while the next seems to prove something else...something more painful.
Anyways...as I've been sitting here tonight...trying to keep my focus away from the pain; I have been reminded, as to how these times can attempt to make us stop and give into whatever we face; but one thing I have definitely told myself; is to keep pressing on...no matter what obstacle attempts to get in my way.
One thing I can say tonight...is no matter what God allows...He is still GOD. Maybe the pain isn't always easy to get through; but I know One, who is ALWAYS there to see me through...so I lean on Him tonight...and allow His presence to be the crutches that can keep me standing; so I can continue to press on.
Quite some time back, as I was hurting deeply; I began to see in mind's eye a path...where there seemed to be many miles ahead of me...miles that needed to be walked down, as a means of leading me closer to God and heaven. As I saw myself standing alone, in the midst of a broken path, I began to focus on all that was still ahead of me...and before I knew it; I was tempted to sit down and quit...but then someone came along...One who offered to not only be my strength...but One who was willing to let me lean on Him...One who had already chosen to walk the path with me...and to this day; I know that He is still there...and will never leave my side. You see...that's the difference, when a Christian suffers in this life...because they always know that no matter what they face, they are never alone...and they never have to bear the blunt of the journey by themself.
No matter what you are facing....I know that these times can be very difficult...and they can even attempt to stop us from pressing on; but may I encourage you tonight...through my own pain; to not give Satan the time of day; but to lean on a God, who will be your strength and will carry you through the times; that are just too hard to walk down on your own. Just let go of everything, except for the One who can be everything for you...for as long as you need Him...and I know that you will make it...believe me...I know.
Well...time for me to lie back and rest a little before bed. I truly pray that God will bless all of our nights, with His peace...and with sweet rest! Take care and I will see you soon!
Goodnight...and God bless!
It's Always & Only Because of Him...
