Good Wednesday evening everyone…and a big welcome to the Heart to Heart Blog! It’s so good to be back together again tonight and I pray that God would truly be felt throughout this evening, as we spend this time together!
Well…today was a very different kind of day; but one thing I can say; is that God was truly felt throughout this entire day…and it all began early this morning, as I was preparing to spend time with God.
As I came into my office this morning, the first plan of action was to call the taxi cab and set up a time; so my husband and I could go shopping later in the morning. To my surprise…no one was available. Immediately I thought to myself… “Oh no…I really need to get this shopping done today because the remainder of the week is booked solid!” While my thoughts were focused on where I could get a cab to go shopping, another situation arose that really needed to be attended to; so here I am…trying to deal with this situation…find a cab…and spend time with God.
Finally…in the midst of it all…I stopped everything and began to pray and ask God for His help. I would say within minutes, I began to feel a peace come over me; that definitely wasn’t there a few minutes before that.
As I calmed down and began to deal with this other situation, I found that everything was beginning to fall into place…and before I knew it; the situation was resolved…so from there, I called my husband into the office and told him about the cab situation. Meanwhile…my time alone with God on Twitter was being completely pushed to the side.
After sitting and talking with my husband for a moment, I went online and was looking for another cab company that could help us and as I began to look down the list, my eye seemed to be drawn to the one at the top of the list…so I called them. From there, a nice gentleman answered the phone and I asked when a cab could be available to pick us up and take us to the store. He said… “I’m sorry mam but we don’t service your area but you could check out this one; so immediately, I wrote down the number and gave this other cab service a call. Within minutes, they were taking my information down…and from there, they said that they would be at our house within 10-20 minutes. Immediately, I said… “Thank you, Lord!” Now…how could I have ever set that up on my own…since I had never heard about this cab service…plus, nothing was working out to begin with…before talking with God?
As my husband and I quickly got ready to leave the house and go shopping, I was still thanking God in my heart, for answering my prayer; but little did I know that He would truly give us His best, from that moment on. As the cab arrived, it was so nice…compared to what we had dealt with in the past. The inside was clean and the drivers were very nice…and no smoke odors…and not only that…it was a little cheaper. Also, the cab driver noticed that I had a stiff leg that wouldn’t bend; so when we got to the store; he pulled up to the door…on my side; so I could just walk right on in.
Once we got in the store…God’s blessings just kept coming, as I saved $10 on my grocery bill…and I got the best check out person, to ring up our groceries! Then when we were finished, I called the same cab company back and within about 10 minutes or less; they had a cab there to pick us up…and he even helped my husband with the groceries, when we got home…which had been a rare thing in the past.
After getting the groceries unpacked; so I could sit down and rest the legs; I decided to go back online and see how everything was going on the website and Twitter. From there, I decided to pick up, from where I had left off that morning and as I began to post quotes and other Bible verses on Twitter…it began to come alive and there was even someone, who had mentioned to me; that one of the writings, was just what they needed, at that time.
See how God works? The day may have started out, in a very unusual way; but it ended, in an amazing way and God led the way completely! I may have missed out, on my time alone with God this morning; but I truly ended up spending the whole day with Him, which was so amazing!
One thing I learned this morning is this…when a day seems to get out of control…just stop everything…let it all go and have a good talk with God. Let’s face it…He’s the only One, who knows how to bring all the broken pieces of a day back together; so there is no sense of suffering needlessly, when God can just come along and fix everything for us.
I’ll tell you…it’s been one of the best days…and I pray that you will also come to experience God’s loving and caring presence in your week! Well…it’s time for me to go; but I hope that you have enjoyed these thoughts from my day, as much as I have! May you truly rest in the loving arms of Jesus this evening and may your Thursday be a very special one!
Take care and I will hope to be back with you tomorrow night, as I share more thoughts from the day, along with the goodness of a great, loving and powerful God…heart to heart!
Blessings so much on your night!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
