Hello everyone…happy Thursday! I sure hope that your day is going well…and even more, I pray that you will experience God in your day, just like I did yesterday. While I'm on that subject…it seemed like I fought every battle that could have fought yesterday morning; but as I left my office to go and prep something for dinner that night…I had a good talk with God and asked Him to walk very close to me, as the morning had already been a very trying one.
Anyways, as I headed for the kitchen, I felt like I was walking into one of those unknown days; you know…a day that completely goes in a different direction than first planned; because after prepping my dinner…I found myself cleaning my kitchen…then my extended kitchen; and then before I knew it, I was in the living room. I even went as far as to take my asparagus fern out the door and shake off all the dead stuff; then from there, I was having Keith plug in the vacuum, to clean around the front window. When I got done, I could barely walk…but the house looked great!
You know…I've come to see that sometimes God takes us down a different path during the day, for a reason we don't always understand. What I did come to see yesterday afternoon…was that this was God's way of caring for one of His children; because later, I began to realize that He was allowing me to get away and release all the stress that had accumulated from that very busy morning. Now I'm back to work…feeling better…and I even got a clean house out of it all, so remember one thing…when you choose to invite God into your day…be prepared, for whatever path He may choose to walk you down.
Before I forget and keep rambling on, I do want you to know that even in the midst of a busy yesterday, I didn't forget about your writing for today, which is really amazing for me; because I don't know about you; but as life is passing me by…so is my memory. Have you ever had a moment, when you had posted a note on your computer or somewhere else…and even with the note right in front of you…you completely forgot it all, even the note…well, that's me…lol. Anyways, I did pick out a very nice writing for you to enjoy today…and it's titled, "How Do You See Life When Life Lets You Down?" If you're struggling to deal with a circumstance; because maybe it just might make you seem like a failure; then this is the writing for you. It's a shorter writing; but right to the point…and it's definitely God inspired.
Well, as I'm looking at the clock…it's telling me that it's time to go for now. I sure have enjoyed our visit today…and I truly hope that you enjoy the writing…and that you will be completely blessed by each God inspired word!
Until we meet again tomorrow…have a very blessed day and ALWAYS know that you are in my thoughts and prayers! God bless & I will see you tomorrow!
It's Always & Only Because of Him…
Hello everyone! How are you doing today? I want you to know that I've been doing better these past few days...and I just love it when God runs the show; because His perfect and loving peace seems to follow me, as He walks me through every minute of my day.
Well, since I recently visited with you yesterday, I have been spending more time with God...and as I was sitting in His presence yesterday morning, some thoughts came to my mind...and one of them was to try and start another new page on the website. In fact, I think that a lot of you would love this idea, so let me tell you a little about it.
As some of you may already know...I love to cook; at least when I'm feeling good. Anyways, God has not only given me a gift to write for Him; but to also create new recipes. Let's see...I would say that I've been cooking for at least 40 years of my life now...and after cooking that long, a person seems to acquire a taste for the things they make...so, I thought that maybe it would be fun to have a food for thought page, where I will share some of my recipes with you and even add some thoughts, little quotes and maybe a bible verse or two, with a tidbit of hope. I'm still thinking on this; but the more I do...I really like the idea and it would give us something new to look forward to on the website. Anyways, I will keep you up to date on that.
Before spending some great moments with God yesterday morning, I once more went into the website, to find a very special writing for you today...and as I did, I ended up on a page titled... "A Journey of Thoughts from God's Heart to Yours." After looking through about 3 pages of writings, I was instantly drawn to a beautiful writing, titled... "Untouched by Evil | Based on Psalm 91." I guarantee that you will enjoy these beautiful words that God once laid upon my heart. Again, all you have to do; is to click on the highlighted title on this page and there you will be...definitely in the presence of almighty God.
You know...one thing that I have truly been enjoying, when it comes to choosing these writings for you; is how they have also touched my own heart, which has been strength to me lately. It has felt so good to have some extra time alone with God...and like I said...there is no other way to begin a day; then to first spend some time alone with Him. You see, I believe that if we start the day with Him; then we will also go through the day with Him...and even end our day with Him, which can keep us away from the evil that's trying to have control over our lives.
No matter what you may be facing today, just know that God is there for you, just as He's been there for me. In fact, I have come to see that He's the One who is waiting for us to enter His presence, rather than the other way around…and once we do; that is when peace begins to replace anxiety, as He shelters us in a love that will never let go; so, may I encourage you to start each new day with Him.
Well…it's about time for me to go again. Where does the time fly? It seems as though we just started our visit…and now it's coming to an end. Anyways…don't forget to check out the link to the writing that I have posted above…take good care…and I will be looking forward to another visit with you again tomorrow! So, until then…may God truly bless your day with His very best!
Talk to you soon!
It's Always & Only Because of Him…
Hello everyone...and how was your Monday? I sure hope that your week is off to a good start! I had one of the best days yesterday. I started the day by doing a little ministry work and then I just sat and had a good talk with God for a while. In fact, it was a beautiful day outside my window, so I just leaned back on a pillow and looked out the window and had a good visit with Him. I'll tell you...there is no better way to begin a day; then to just sit and have a talk...heart to heart with God. In fact, I find that talking with God helps my relationship with Him to grow...and the peace I find during these moments is priceless.
Anyways, after spending some good time alone with God...I came on the website and began to look deep into a variety of many writings that God had given me over the years...and I came to see very quickly; that some of them were even outdated on the internet, which meant that they weren't being found. So, I decided to go into one of my older blogs, titled... "Daily Hope for the Hurting Heart Blog"...and as I did, I came across a great writing for you today, especially since we are now in the season of spring. It's a writing that instantly took me back to the moment when I wrote it and it's titled... "Tears that Water the Heart from Within." All you have to do is click on the highlighted title and enjoy...and I truly hope and pray that this writing will bless your heart today, just as it did mine.
Well, I don't know about you; but I'm enjoying our little visits...and I want you to know that I'm praying for you every night; that God would truly be with you...no matter what you may be facing. Just know that you are never alone...and that God and I love you very much! These days that we are living in aren't always easy, are they; but what comfort we have, in knowing that we have a God who is watching our every move, which should always be a reminder to us that we are never alone in this lonely world.
Well, I hate to go; but it's time for me to leave for now; but please take care...enjoy the writing and I will look forward to another visit with you tomorrow...right here!
Have a very blessed day...and may God bless you much!
It's Always & Only Because of Him...
Hello everyone! I sure hope that your week is off to a good start! Today, I wanted to stop by and have a talk with you. As a lot of you know...my health hasn't been the best lately. In fact, I have been in quite a bit of pain over the weekend...and was even struggling to do today's blog writing.
After a rough weekend, I decided to take some time and spend it alone with my husband and God. I know that God already knows what's happening with me; but I wanted to see what could be done, so I wouldn't have to quit the ministry completely...as I truly enjoy doing what I'm doing for you...and especially for God.
Anyways...after visiting with Keith for a short bit, I began to feel that God was truly working with my spirit. You see, I believe that when we can't make something work for ourselves...He definitely can; and He was already beginning to do that, as I sat there in the living room. So, what I'm going to do; is to visit with you on this page between Monday and Friday, and keep you updated, as to what God and I are up to. Also, I won't be doing any new writings for a while; but I am going to dig deep into the website, where there are thousands of writings that probably haven't been found by most of you...and share a link to one of those writings on this page each day...for about a month, while I take and spend some time alone with God, to see what may be next for me. I have been working on a header for a brand-new page; but I need some quiet time alone with God, to see where I should go from here. Also, I need to slow down a little and try to get some much-needed rest.
At this time, I don't have any plans on shutting down the ministry. Right now, I just need a little break...and this will also give you a chance to experience more of the ministry's website; because every word on this website is truly God inspired.
As we close our visit for now, I would like to encourage you to check out Monday's writing, which will be the final one on "A Heartfelt Moment with God," until further notice, which is titled... "When You Can't Take It Anymore." I think that you can tell that this writing was inspired by what I have been facing lately.
Anyways, until we meet on here again tomorrow, I pray that your day will be truly filled with the loving and powerful presence of God! I also hope that you will continue to come back, as I will posting updated news on the writings and ministry, along with one special link to a writing each day...one that will continue to bring hope back into your heart.
May you truly have a very blessed day...and I will look forward to another visit with you tomorrow!
God bless you so much!
It's Always & Only Because of Him...
Hello everyone...and how are you doing today? I'm just getting ready to complete my work week...and thought I'd stop by and spend a few minutes with you. I sure hope that life is going well for you right now! Many times, in the evening, while spending some quiet moments alone with God, I think of you and pray for you...and even wonder what you may possibly be going through at this time. You know...life is just so uncertain, with all that is happening in this world right now; but praise God that we have Him to lean on during these difficult times.
By the way...while I have you with me, I want to let you know that I'm planning on posting a special word of encouragement each Friday...one that you can come back to over the weekend, if you are feeling a little low. As I was thinking on what I wanted to post for this Friday; God instantly laid it on my mind to do a writing titled... "When Nothing Seems to be Going Right | Encouraging Thoughts"...so that's just what I did. If you would like to check out the writing; you can find it on my daily blog... "A Heartfelt Moment with God."
Well...it's been great visiting with you; but it's time to finish up. I truly hope and pray that you will have a very blessed weekend! Please take care...and I will look forward to visiting with you again next week! God bless!
It's Always & Only Because of Him...
