Hello everyone…and how is your Wednesday? This morning, I woke up to a beautiful blanket of snow on the ground. The trees are laced in white and the birdhouses and the solar lantern outside my office window; truly take me back to an old fashioned winter. Through it all…God is reminding me this morning; that He truly does make all things beautiful in His time.
Last night, as I laid my head on the pillow and began to see the snow falling outside my window…there were no words spoken, as I just longed for peace, from what my body was experiencing at the time. From that moment on…it was just as if God had stepped in and began to speak to my heart and say… “That’s ok Diane…you just lie back and I will read your unspoken heart.” Within a short time, I had drifted off to sleep and God was blessing me, with His sweet peace.
As I awoke to this beautiful winter wonderland; God began to take my thoughts to Ecclesiastes 3:11, which says… “He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end.” Just think…God not only makes all things beautiful in His time; but He already knows what He’s going to do, in each of our lives. Even though we cannot see the full scope, of what He has planned for each of us…we can trust Him to turn these unwanted moments around into something beautiful…something that only He is able to do.
You know…one thing I know, without a doubt this morning; is that God read the feelings of my heart last night…because He has given me a response this morning that is so full of hope. Maybe these moments I’m experiencing aren’t always easy to walk through; but knowing that He has the power to turn it around in His time…and make life beautiful once more for me; does help me to keep pressing on. Even though I don’t know the timeframe, of what He is allowing within my life…He has once more reminded me today; that it will happen…and to me; that’s better than not knowing anything at all.
One thing I’m learning more and more, through these relentless moments of pain; is that I need to ALWAYS keep my heart and thoughts open to Him; otherwise, I will only continue to be abused by the affliction. I truly believe that when we remain connected to God…no matter what we are facing; that this is when we will find true hope in God.
Well…it’s time for me to see what God has planned for the day, while I enjoy this beautiful winter wonderland outside my window. No matter what yesterday appeared to be…I am experiencing something new…something that has truly become beautiful, through the awesome hand of God.
As you continue to walk through your day, I pray that you too, will come to see what God is trying to convey to you…through whatever you may be facing…and that you will truly find God’s hope, to be greater than despair!
Have a great Wednesday…see ya soon…and many, many blessings on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
