Hello everyone…and a very happy and blessed Wednesday to you all! I truly hope that your day is going well…and if it isn't going that well for you today, I pray that you will feel the presence of God surrounding you…and even more, I pray that you will always know in your heart that God is watching over you…no matter what…Amen!!
Last night was a rough night for me, so I went to bed a little earlier. Lately, I have felt on overload, with all that needs to be done, along with the health issues I'm dealing with; so bear with me, as I start fresh with God this morning.
As I've been sitting here today…listening to some music and relaxing; God took me back to an old hymn, titled "His Eye is on the Sparrow"…and as He began to minister to my heart, I thought I would share one of my favorite verses from this hymn with you…and we read… "Why should I feel discouraged, why should the shadows come, why should my heart be lonely, and long for heav’n and home, when Jesus is my portion…my constant Friend is He: His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me."
You know…we all have moments, when life takes us down a road of discouragement…a time when we can no longer deal with what has been put before us. It seems the more we try…the harder it gets; but God is reminding us in this song; that we don't have to feel discouraged or allow the darkened shadows of despair to have control; for He is a constant friend; not just a friend who is there when He wants to be…but a friend who longs to always be there for us…and because of this…we can rest assured that His loving eyes are watching everything that pertains to us.
As I was looking through some Bible verses this morning; He began to lead me to several verses in Psalm 121:5-8…and we read… "The Lord watches over you—the Lord is your shade at your right hand; 6) the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. 7) The Lord will keep you from all harm—he will watch over your life; 8) the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore."
There was a time in my life, when depression had hit me head on. I felt lost and alone in a world of my own…a world that made me feel as if I was in a deep dark wilderness of despair. It seemed that no matter what direction I took; I always seemed to end up, in the place from where I first began. Moments such as these definitely made me feel forsaken by God; that is until He began to work with my heart and show me how He could be my sunlight by day…and my moonlight by night. In other words…He knew exactly where I was and where He wanted me to be…and because His eyes were upon me; that would make Him the only One who could lead me out of a maze of despair.
You know…it's so amazing, as to how these hard and difficult, and even discouraging times can convince us that there is no hope. All we seem to see before us is nothing but darkness and despair; but if we could just remember that we aren't alone during times such as these…and that there is a friend who cares…One who is watching us, even at this time; then I think that we would no longer feel discouraged; but instead, I believe that thoughts such as these would allow a new hope to spring up within us…one that would help us to keep pressing on, until we have walked beyond these moments of despair.
Have a very blessed day…and ALWAYS know that God's got you!
God bless…and I'll see you tomorrow!
It's Always & Only Because of Him…
