Bible Verse for the Day | Ecclesiastes 3:11
"He hath made everything beautiful in his time: also, he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end."
Hello everyone…and a very happy and blessed Monday to you all! What a great day the Lord hath made, so let us rejoice and be glad in it! As we begin our time together today, I pray that no matter what has entered our lives; that we will truly come to see that time has a way of leading us further and further away from the troubles that attempt to overtake us…Amen!
One evening, I was thinking on how fast the years have passed, even while facing some of the most difficult moments in my life. As I was sitting here…thinking on all of this, I began to go deep in thought. Just think…time comes, and time goes. Where once we were children, we now have become adults. As the days pass by…so does life, until the child we once were, has lived a life that tells a story.
You know…in a similar way…our hearts and minds can become wounded and weak, due to the hard and difficult times we face. Sometimes we can feel as if this is the way it will always be…believe me, I know; but as each second, minute, day, week and month goes by; so does the brokenness, until our hearts are only left with a scar…something that not only reminds us of that painful moment we once experienced; but also something that tells a story of God's faithfulness…and how He used each passing moment to become stepping stones that would eventually walk us out of despair.
Right now, as I look at my knees, I see 3 large scars on the right knee…and two large scars on the left knee. Now, if I was to focus on every painful moment that brought about these scars; then I would say that all I would see is nothing but a lot of pain and suffering, which would definitely be enough to bring me down and keep me down. Now, on the other hand, if I was to look at these scars in a different way…one that reveals the true purpose for these scars; then the story would say that much was accomplished in the lives of others for God…and that I had learned much along the way, that would eventually lead me to serving Him. Believe me when I say…I know how a circumstance can take a toll on a person…and I know without a doubt, as to how these troublesome moments can seem as if they will never, never pass…but they do…and just like the waves of the sea…they come and then they go.
One thing I have definitely come to see in our Bible verse for the day; is that not one of us can know what will take place in our lives from the beginning to the end; but even though unexpected moments of circumstance may enter our lives; God does take each one…and He makes them beautiful in His time, which should give us hope that these painful moments in our lives will eventually pass.
The next time you feel as if a problem is here to stay…just know that as each day passes, so will one more piece of the circumstance…and as it does…something greater will replace it…something that will truly tell a story of God's faithfulness in your life…so never give up.
As I look back on my life, I remember long days of pain and deep heartache…to the place, where I felt as if this was what my life would always be; but now, I see how I was basing those thoughts, on what seemed to be endless moments of suffering. Through time, I had to learn to look beyond those moments…and instead, look in the direction of where God was leading me…and once I did; that is when I not only became in sync with Him…but I also came to see that these painful times in my life were only leading me to His very best.
No matter what you're going through right now…and no matter how long you've been going through it, just know that with each passing moment…God will walk you away from what you're experiencing…just as He did for me.
As we close this time together, I pray that you will truly experience the depth of God's presence in your life each day…and that you will always remember these words that He has given you…from His heart to yours; that you may always have hope, while facing the hard and difficult times of life. Until we meet again…take care…have a very nice day…and I will hope to see you again tomorrow, for another great God inspired visit! May God truly bless your heart!
It's Always & Only Because of Him…
