Hello everyone…and a very happy and blessed Sunday to you all! I truly hope and pray that your day will be a good one…completely blessed, by a God who can do ALL things!!
This morning, as I have been looking out to a beautiful day…I’ve been thinking on all that God has done for me recently…and I praise Him, with a full heart that is overflowing with love for Him today!
Many times we think of Thanksgiving, as being the time to give thanks…but to me; that day is only a reminder, of all we should praise God for…and even as we are about to enter Christmas day…that same heart that once thanked God, for everything on Thanksgiving Day; is still full of praise!
You know…I have seen God work in my life, in so many ways…these past couple of weeks. Maybe it wasn’t always the way, in which I thought it would go…but actually His ways made a better way; then if I would have tried it on my own.
One of my very favorite Bible verses is found in Isaiah 43:19…and we read… “Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.”
When I think of a wilderness or rapid waters flowing in a river…or even a dry and barren desert; I think also on the circumstances we face. I know one thing…when I experienced a deep dark wilderness, within my own life…I definitely felt lost and alone…and when I felt as if I had been thrown into troubled waters…I actually thought I was about to go down for the last time; but do you know what…God made a way in the wilderness and lifted me out of the troubled waters that I was once in.
So many times, we get caught up in the wilderness…the rapid and troubling waters, along with the dry and barren moments of circumstance; that before we know it…we lose hope of ever coming out of those times. It seems as if we begin to believe even more in those troubling times, rather than believing in the One, who is greater than those troubling times…but I can say today; that I have seen God make a way in my life, when I definitely couldn’t see a way before me. In fact, I have come to see that we experience this powerful God even more…in ways that we could have never imagined, during these troubling times in our lives.
Today…you may be feeling lost in a wilderness of problems, as I once was…or maybe you feel as if your circumstance has thrown you into a troubled sea…or maybe you feel, as if your circumstance has made you thirst for a God you can’t seem to find. No matter how you may be feeling today; just know that this is not the time to give up…just because of what is standing before you; but rather, this is a time to anticipate a God, who can carve a path before you…one that will definitely take you away from the wilderness and barren moments of despair.
Well…I sure have enjoyed this writing today! I KNOW God was in it…as my fingers went rapidly across the keyboard. Just know that God loves you so much…and these words of wisdom and encouragement from above; are only a taste of what He truly longs to be for you each day!
I sure hope that your day is a very special one…truly blessed by God above! Take good care and I will hope to be with you later!
Have a great Sunday…and many blessings on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
