Hello everyone! I hope you're enjoying your Friday night...I know I am! Wow...it's been quite the day! Today, I took most of my day to clean my home and what a job I had! Right about now, you may be wondering...how does she do all of this work, on two bad legs? Well...I call it the strength of a strong God. You too may be familiar with this kind of strength and if you're not...lean on God and make Him your strength because He can bring you thru anything that may seem impossible to the eye.
I don't know what you had going on in your day; but I had an office that really needed the cleaning...along with a few rugs that needed a shampoo. Isn't it amazing how so much dust can accumulate in such a short time! Oh...and I can also see what kind of a week I had, by my waste basket and boy was it full today!
Anyways...God was with me all through the day and even though there was a lot to do...I can definitely say that it went very smooth. Now, I am in my office...visiting with you, with my feet up on the daybed...giving my poor legs a break, from a very busy day!
You know...I remember a time, when I was so tired of chronic pain and all the surgeries I went through...until a time came, when I lost a lot of mobility in my right leg. Now...I've come to appreciate what I do have and I'm so blessed to be able to walk, after so much trauma to both legs...along with a rod in my right leg! I can actually say that God has helped me to walk way beyond the pain...surgeries and disability; to truly appreciate what I have. It doesn't mean that I enjoy the pain; but I have come to lean on a great and powerful God, as a means of getting through the pain...and that's what makes the difference. I like to tell people that God has become the greatest pain pill I could ever have because I have actually had moments, when I was in a lot of pain but yet I still turned to my writing, as a means of connecting with God, which seemed to make the pain go away.
I truly believe that when we disconnect from our problems and truly plug into a powerful God; that we can find life to be easier. Even though the circumstance is still there...plugging into God seems to take a person to a place of peace, where the burden becomes lighter.
This morning, as I spent time alone with God; He led me to Psalm 112 and as I was reading verse 4, this is what I read... "Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous." The part of this verse that reached me the most; is where it says... "Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness," which to me says that no matter how dark a situation may appear; God can bring His light into the midst of our darkness and illuminate it and bring it to light, which in turn can also destroy these forms of darkness that enter our lives...that is, if we are seeking Him, with a whole heart...a heart that longs to only be connected to His ways. I don't know about you...but I am so thankful, to have a God in my life, who can be there for me...to make the burden lighter!
Well...my day is about to come to a close. I hope that you have a great night of rest and that you truly experience God's peace throughout the night! Time for me to enjoy some more relaxing moments with God...see you soon!
It's Always & Only Because of Him...
