Hello everyone…and a very happy and blessed Thursday to you all! I hope that your day is off to a good start…and before we begin today, I would like to take a moment and thank all of our veterans, along with others who continue to serve our country…for all that you have done for your fellow Americans. I think we tend to forget about those, who have given up their own lives…to give their all for this country; so today I want to say…"Thank You!"
Last night, as I was once more spending some quiet moments alone with God, I began to think back on the day…and a specific moment that God was truly there for me. It was after finishing my writing yesterday; that I began to head to the kitchen, so I could prep something in advance for dinner last night. Somehow I knew in the back of my mind; that I just might be at battle with Satan, after writing some powerful truths that morning. I don't know why…but that seems to bother him…lol. You see…I have come to realize why the battles can sometimes be so fierce in my life…and that is because I am not only sharing God inspired writings with one or two people…but the whole world…and I just don't think he likes that.
Anyways…before leaving my office yesterday morning…to head off to the kitchen, I asked God to come with me, as I need all the help I can get. While beginning to prepare a new chicken dish for later that night, my health began to take a bad turn…and before I knew it, I was feeling pretty ill, which is what I deal with from time to time. As I continued to press through it and get the cooking done, I found myself struggling even more, so I stopped and leaned against the kitchen counter and began to call out to God for help, while I took a few deep breaths and shifted my thoughts in His direction. While trying to remain calm…it was as if I was beginning to feel the presence of God…riding out the storm with me; and before I knew it, I was feeling much better. Before we go any further…I need you to understand that I have dealt with these health issues before…and I already know what is taking place in my body, due to much pain and chronic fatigue; but when this happens, I just take hold of God…and it's amazing, as to how the problem is no longer there.
As I continued to spend more time alone with God last night in His word; He began to lead me to several Bible verses that truly touched my heart; so let's turn to Psalm 107:28-30, and we read… "Then they cry unto the Lord in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses. 29) He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still. 30) Then are they glad because they be quiet; so he bringeth them unto their desired haven."
How many times do we try to weather a storm on our own? I remember times within my own life, when I used to do this…and I'll tell you…I don't know how I made it through those moments on my own; because to me, this is when we are actually feeling the blunt of the storm…and we as humans just don't have the power and strength on our own to get through times such as these…and when we try to do so; we either find ourselves suffering needlessly or giving into the storm. As I look back on yesterday morning…I see where God had entered that kitchen with me; because I had invited Him to be there with me; which made it that much easier for me to find Him, at a time when I needed Him the most.
No matter what you may be facing at this time…whether it be something personal within your own life…or even in this world; there is a God who is standing on alert…ready to run to you, at a time when you need Him the most; but first, you must humble yourself and admit that you aren't strong enough to cope with what stands before you…and cry out to Him. Once you do this; that is when God will run to His child…and He will calm the moments that just seem so out of control; so give Him your all today…and one thing I know…you won't regret it; because He will take you out of the storm…calm the raging moments within…and bring you to a safe haven with Him!
Have a very blessed day and ALWAYS know that God is there…just for you!
God bless…and I will look forward to our time together again tomorrow!
It's Always & Only Because of Him…
