Hello everyone! I hope that your day is off to a good start! You know…a short time ago, I really had something special happen between me and God…and so I thought that I would take some time and share it with you today, as a means of encouragement, while facing these uncertain times.
Lately, I have been going grocery shopping about every two to three weeks, due to the condition of my legs…and I would say that about several weeks back, I began to feel the need to try and store up for four weeks…thinking that this may be God’s way of sustaining me, through the tough times of pain that I have been experiencing lately.
Anyways…last week, as I was beginning to put another new list together…something all of a sudden hit me. Could it be that God was not only trying to help and sustain me, due to the pain in my legs; but could it also be that He had already been making plans to help and sustain my husband and I during this Coronavirus?
After thinking on this…I began to feel more and more convinced that God had already saw way down the road…to a storm that was brewing and heading our way…and this became His way of helping us, even before the storm had arrived.
You know…so many times, we get caught up in what is going drastically wrong around us; that we completely miss out on the hidden blessings that could help and sustain us through these difficult times. One thing I have learned over time; is to keep myself open to God…no matter what is happening around me. I truly believe that when we do this; then this does give God room to step in and help us, especially when we need it the most.
As I’ve been sitting here…thinking on all that God has placed upon my heart today, I began to feel Him lead me to a Bible verse in Deuteronomy 31:8, which says… “The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged."
You know…moments like these can make the path ahead seem so dark and unknown to us. Even though we know what is happening…we just don’t always know what the final outcome will be, due to the darkness of despair that surrounds us; but when we allow God to go ahead of us; then His presence lightens these darkened moments…so we can truly experience the hope and help that He so longs to offer us.
Do you know what life would be like, if we were to just look for the blessings that shine through these darkened moments, rather than just focusing on how bad something is…and even, where it may take us? The way I see it; is that this alone would truly help us to remain connected to God during these difficult times, rather than deeply connected, to what is going on around us…and if we are truly connected to God, during these troublesome times; then those little blessings that shine through the darkness, will be just enough light, to keep us pressing on.
Today, I thank God for the blessings He has bestowed upon me…and even more, I thank Him for walking ahead of me…down this darkened path; for this gives me hope… that He is truly taking care of me.
You know…God longs to do the same for you too; but first, you must get rid of all the roadblocks that are keeping you imprisoned within these troublesome times. Once we are willing to look beyond the hard times, for what God is truly longing to do, as a means of sustaining us; that is when we will find a light of hope, even in the darkened moments of despair.
Have a great day everyone…and know that you all are in my prayers! May God truly bless and keep you each day! See ya soon!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
