Hello everyone…and a very happy and blessed Thursday to you all! It’s so good to be back with you today…and I pray that through this time together; that we will truly experience the love of a God, who longs so much to care for us…Amen!!
As many of you know…lately my health hasn’t been that good. I’ve been struggling with a lot of pain and tiredness…and the body has just felt pretty worn out lately. Even though I haven’t been at my best, due to these health issues; I decided to venture out with Keith yesterday and go grocery shopping, which can be a long day for me.
Anyways…several days before the big adventure, I was already questioning myself, as to whether I could be on my feet this long; but in the end, I decided to leave this whole situation with God.
Even before getting out of bed yesterday morning; God began to speak to my spirit and remind me that He would be there for me…and to not fear these unknown moments that I was about to enter; and from there…He truly stood on His promise to me, as I began to experience His hand at work in my day…because for one thing, we were supposed to have rain yesterday morning…but get this…it was actually a sunny morning, until I got safely home…and that is when the rain began to fall. To some…this may not seem of great importance; but to me it is, as the weather does greatly affect the pain I experience.
As the day continued on…there was even more evidence that my God was truly watching over me…and I praise Him so much, for helping me through that time!
As I was thinking on God’s goodness this morning; He began to lead me to a Bible verse in Isaiah 41:13, which reads… “For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.”
You know… the situations we face in life can attempt to convince us that we are either alone…or that we just may not make it. It’s so easy to get caught up in these thoughts…and once we do; then we find ourselves giving into the problem, rather than turning to the One who longs to walk with us through the problem.
It was yesterday, when God quickly reminded me; that even though the pain and tiredness was making my situation seem hopeless…it really wasn’t; because there was a God who was greater than that situation…One who longed to walk through these moments of struggle with me…and even more…One who longed to give me a helping hand.
So many times, I think that we try to stand strong on our own…and once we find that we can no longer do so; then we just give up altogether…never thinking that through our weaknesses…we can experience a perfect strength that can keep us standing through the hard and difficult times of life.
Maybe you too are going through some struggles in your life today…and from experience; these ongoing moments can certainly attempt to dictate our lives and deceive us into thinking that we are either alone…or maybe we just won’t make it at all.
As we close this time together, may I offer you a piece of hope…one that will truly bring a glimpse of light into these darkened moments your facing? Instead of trying to muddle through the situation on your own…or giving up completely; why not humble yourself before God and lay your weaknesses before Him. One thing I know without a doubt; is that once you do this; then this is when the Lord will come and take hold of your hand and help you walk through these difficult times…just as He did for me. God bless!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
