Good Tuesday evening everyone! It’s so good to have you with me tonight, at the Heart to Heart Blog! God is so00 good and I just want the world to know what He can be, for each and every one of us!
Today has been a different day…but a day that was truly controlled by the power of the Most High God! The day actually started out great…as I spent a little over an hour with God this morning…and then from there, I was able to complete some things I wanted to do in the kitchen.
After I was finished in the kitchen, I went back into my office, to spend some more time with God and tape my weekly audio word of encouragement, for Inspiration for the Heart. In fact…it’s all done and the page has been updated; so you might want to check that out tonight or tomorrow…whenever it’s convenient for you. I think you will truly enjoy this week’s audio word of encouragement, as it is in reference to Good Friday, which is only a couple of days away. Anyways…if you would like to check out this week’s audio word of encouragement, on Inspiration for the Heart…just click here!
Once all the ministry work was finished today, I wanted to look for some old cassette tapes…yes you heard me right…some old cassette tapes that my husband and I have had, for quite a long time. Recently, I had found an old cassette player and so I set it up next to my husband’s desk and thought he’d enjoy hearing some of the old songs that we used to listen to. Also…one of the cassette tapes I have is quite old, as it was one of the first cassette tapes that I listened to, as a means of encouragement, before my first knee surgery, which was around the age of 10 years old. I don’t know about you; but I just love listening or re-reading the things that I have had put away for quite some time, as they really help me to see how far God has brought me in life.
Anyways…I hunted high and low for those tapes and could not find them; so from there, I ended up doing something else and that wasn’t working out either…and as my day seemed to continue that way…before I knew it, the afternoon was over and it was time to get around and come back online.
As I went to get around for the evening…before writing you tonight; I felt so overwhelmed by what had just taken place; that I almost didn’t come online tonight. There seemed to be a battle…and for some reason…Satan was attempting to win the battle and convince me that I needed to take the evening off…while at the same time, I felt God prompting me to do the writing and get back online. From there, I told myself… “Ok Diane…just be silent and go back online and see what God has planned”…so here I am.
Before coming on the blog…to spend some time with you this evening, I went on Twitter and shared something with my friends on there and one thing God shared with my heart, while I was there, is this… “It’s not about the trial…it’s about the One who can bring us through the trial”…and one thing God is reminding me of tonight; is to not allow what happened today, to keep me distant from Him and all He longs for me to do for Him. You know…God wants us to run in His direction…because when we choose to run in the direction of everything that attempts to bring us low; then these difficult moments will only increase in strength, which will only make a troubled moment…even more troubling…so I am so glad that I ran from the thoughts that were attempting to keep me away from you this evening.
You know…we all face these struggles in life…and especially, when we are close to God…because you see; it’s Satan who longs to separate us from the love of God. We may not always find it easy to overcome these moments…but one thing I found out today was this… when I remained silent and obeyed God…He definitely did walk me out of that crazy afternoon!
Well…I hope that you enjoyed our visit tonight…just as much as I did…and I pray that your night will truly be filled with the loving presence, of a God who longs to love and care for you so much! Please take care…have a great Wednesday and I will hope to be back with you again tomorrow evening, as I share thoughts from my 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…
