Hello everyone…and welcome back to our Monday visit together! I sure hope that you had a nice weekend…I know I did! I was able to get outside a little more and enjoy some fresh air and just relax, which has gotten to be one of my favorite things to do lately.
Also, on Friday evening before bed, I decided to spend a little time alone with God; because I don't know about you; but lately, life has just seemed to be a little different for me. I don't know if it's because I'm getting a little older…or if it has to do with all that is going on around me; but anyways, there can be moments when I find myself asking God for a little more hope and a little more joy, with something new to bring my heart back to life again.
Anyways, as I was talking with Him the other night about this…I would say that it was Saturday evening, when He began to lead me to a writing on one of the website pages, titled… "Writing thru Affliction." As I read and re-read this writing, it was as though He had brought a special message from His heart to mine…and by time I was finished, I felt like something new had sprung alive within me…and had awakened my thoughts to the hope that I had been looking for. From there, I decided to share this writing with you today, which is titled… "When You Feel as if all Hope is Gone;" because I'm sure that a lot of you probably haven't read this writing…and I was just so inspired by it; that I thought that it would give you a little lift to the beginning of your week…and maybe even bring hope alive, even more within your own life.
You know…sometimes we just need to ask God to take us to a place that's beyond where we are at the time…and one thing I know for sure; we aren't going to find a way to do this, by looking deeper into what is wrong. Instead, we need to walk beyond despair and seek and keep looking for the answers of hope, until we find them…and even come to see where they long to lead us.
For me, the longs days of physical pain can take a toll on me…to the place where I struggle to see anything good; but I have come to see that this isn't the time to sit in the midst of it all and let these moments run and rule our lives; but rather, we need to take one simple step beyond the moments that are attempting to keep us trapped in despair and search with all our hearts, for the hope that God can bring our way, during these difficult times. In other words, we need to get our eyes fixed on something other than the problem. I don't know about you; but this is what is going to be first and foremost on my mind this week; because I know with all my heart; that I've already received the hope I was searching for on Saturday. Now, I'm reaching my hand out to you and asking you to come with me…and let God help you to also find hope through this writing. One thing I know…together, we can make it…and especially with God.
Well, there is nothing more to say today, as we are just beginning another new week; but I hope that you will come back tomorrow and spend some more time with me! I sure hope that you will have a good Monday! Please take care and I will talk with you again tomorrow! God bless you so much!
It's Always & Only Because of Him…
