Hello everyone & a big welcome to Moments Spent with God! I am so glad to have you with me today! No matter what you’re facing, just know that you’re never alone because I care and most of all…God loves and cares for you so much!
You know…today, I would just like to have a heart to heart visit with you! Just before coming to spend some time with you and God, I was listening to a song titled, “He Never Gave Up” and the song says that if you were to look at where I once was and where I am now; then you would know for sure that God never gave up on me…and that’s my life story.
You too may have a similar story…only half of the story may still be incomplete. There may be days, when you keep looking back and all you see are the long and difficult days of trial…a time when you wonder when the story will ever come to an end.
Today, I would like to let you know that I truly understand those feelings because there was a time, when I honestly never thought that I would walk out of so much pain and heartache. It seemed like each new day just picked up and continued, from where life left off the day before. Days began to drag into years, as more surgeries took place, while a heart that had been deeply broken by abuse was still trying to mend, from years of deep hurt. I remember times, when I would stare at the floor and feel like this was going to be my lot in life. The glimpse of hope that kept me pressing on was now beginning to fade away…more and more.
One thing I can say for sure, was God’s mercy was always reaching down to me and somehow I always knew that He was standing in the dark shadows of my suffering…working to devise the right plan that would release me from the clutches of evil, while leading me back into the sunlight of His loving presence.
You know…if you could walk back in time with me and see what God had allowed within my life…just so I could do what I’m doing today; then I’m sure that the flame of hope would once more ignite within your soul; but since that can’t happen, just know that I have walked similar roads, to what you are walking down right now and one thing I can say for sure; is that God will walk you out of the moments of darkness…just as He did for me and you will find that the story of your life becomes a different story…a story that reveals a greater strength; then before the trial began.
Today, if I could sit down and talk with you face to face, I would share everything that God has brought me through; that you may continue to find hope for your own life. You know…God never said that the road would be an easy one and He never said that darkness would never try to overtake us but His promise to us; is that He would be with us, until the time came, when He would walk us out of these difficult moments of trial.
Right now, you may feel lost in the valley of affliction; but I know a God who will be your sunlight by day and your moonlight by night and when He has walked you out of these difficult valleys, He will lead you to the top of a mountain, where He will point down to the valley below and truly show you how far He has brought you.
May you truly find hope and a God who can walk you out of your moments of despair!
Blessings on your day…
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
