This morning, as I’m sitting here on my daybed…I am looking out to a beautiful start to my day. The sun is shining through the trees…and everything seems to be alive in the yard.
One thing I’ve come to truly understand throughout my life; is that even though the day can seem bright and beautiful…the heart can be darkened by moments of circumstance, which can make it difficult for the heart to feel anything good.
The hope and promise that God has given me throughout the years; is that each day gives us something new…something that wasn’t in our yesterday; and the more we experience these new moments and focus on them…the more we come to see that they do lead us to something better.
A Bible verse that has always been of great encouragement to my heart is found in Isaiah 43:19, which says… “See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”
The encouragement that I would like to give you today; is to look straight ahead, for what God is longing to do in your life, through the difficult times you’re facing. I have found that when I look into the face of a trying circumstance and focus on that alone; then I also come to believe what that circumstance is trying to convey to me, which only leads me to hopelessness; but when I look ahead, for what God may be doing through the difficult times; then with each step I take through life, I gradually see how He is making a way for me, through the darkened wilderness of despair.
As you begin each day…my prayer for you; is that you will be able to emotionally and spiritually rise above the moments that are attempting to take you down…and that you will be able to look through the foggy moments…that just don’t seem clear right now…to know in your heart that God IS making a way for you…Amen!
Have a very blessed day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
