Good evening everyone...and how was your day!? I had a great day, with a mixed bag of everything that needed to be done; but the thing I want to talk about this evening; is a special moment that I spent with God...before going to bed last night.
Yesterday...most of my day went smooth; that is until later in the day. As I look back on these moments, I can't help but think that it was only because I had a good day and you know who wanted to spoil it for me.
Anyways...after watching God bring me through these difficult moments...I didn't know if I wanted to stay up and do some writing or if I should just go to bed. As I sat on my daybed in the office...I just sat there quietly. The night before...God had given me some beautiful thoughts to write; so I thought that I would look back on those. As I did...words began to come...and within a short time, I had already written 4 pages of beautiful words...from God's heart to mine.
Before going to bed...I decided to do something different...so after putting away my journal of writings; I just laid back on the bed...and outside my office window, I can see everything lit up at night, due to a yard light...near the back of the yard; so I just decided to lie there and look out to the trees and all the beauty that shown within the darkness of that night and talk with God for a while. I shared everything...and I mean everything. I talked with Him about the writings...and everything I enjoyed in my day. I talked with Him about others, who had asked for prayer...and even more, I began to share every feeling; that still seemed to be hanging onto me from the early evening. I'll tell you...after about 15 minutes or so, I began to feel emptied out from the day and before I knew it, I was ready to rest.
Later...as I closed my eyes, I asked God to be close to me and allow His presence to be ever near. During that time alone with Him...I came to truly see that He had been the light that had shown through some darkened moments of my day...and as His light exposed every work of darkness; that had attempted to ruin a good day...I began to feel the weight of those moments leave me...as a peace and loving spirit took their place.
No matter what you may have felt or experienced in your day...may I encourage you to invite God into those moments. Let it all go and allow the light of His presence, to expose and illuminate the works of darkness; that you too may experience God's peace and loving Spirit throughout your night!
I truly pray that your night will be a good one...completely blessed by God! Take care and I will hope to be with you again tomorrow!
Many...many blessings on your night!
It's Always & Only Because of Him...
