Good evening everyone! I hope you had a nice Wednesday! It's hard to believe that tomorrow will be the first of August...and talking about the first of August...don't forget to look for my free e-book of the month, on the homepage of this site...tomorrow, August 01, 2019!
Now, as the sun begins to set for another day...let us meditate on the goodness of God. You know...so many times, we tend to meditate on everything that went wrong in the day; but like you...I find that this only makes a miserable evening and a sleepless night; so no matter what you have walked through today...let it all go into the hands of God...for He knows how to work our problems out better than we do...don't you think?
You know...there was a time quite awhile back, when I had an overwhelming day. I think that everything that could have overwhelmed me that day did. Anyways...as I sat on the edge of my daybed in the office...I looked directly across the room, to a picture of Jesus; that I have hanging near my desk...and as I looked deep into His face, I began to share all the hurt from that day...then it was as if He was speaking to my heart to say... "Diane, tomorrow's a new day...focus on that"...and you know what...I did and as I began to think more on what He had laid upon my heart; I began to say to myself... "Diane, it's alright...tomorrow's a brand new day...so just let it go and go to sleep and you will see that God will bring you another new tomorrow."
After I went to bed...I slept with such peace...the peace of God...and why? Because I had let it all go into God's hands...and while I slept; He went to work on my behalf...and by morning, everything began to look brand new again; so let it all go and meditate on God, rather than the circumstances of the day!
As we close this day together, I pray that you will find the strength to let go of your day...and meditate on the One, who can replace these difficult moments, with peace and sweet rest!
God bless...have a great night and I'll see you tomorrow...Diane
Hello everyone...and a "Happy Wednesday" to you! I truly pray that your Wednesday is off to a good start!
Well...a new day stands before us...and no matter what we face in this day...we have the assurance that our God is there and will always care for us!
You know...sometimes our circumstances can make us feel like nothing before God; but when we reflect on Matthew 6:26...we are reminded that if God can care for the birds of the air, which are not as valuable to Him as we are...then we can know for sure that He will be there to care for us and walk us through the tough and difficult struggles of life.
I remember many times in the past, when the overwhelming moments of circumstance made me feel like a piece of nothing before God; but as I look back to those times...to where I am right now; I see a God, who truly was there...to love and care for me.
No matter what you are walking through right now...just know that you aren't alone. Yes...the circumstance can make you feel alone; but even in the midst of these foggy moments; there is a God, who is watching everything that concerns you; so don't give up on hope...but rather, cling to the God of all hope and let Him be there for you...just as He has been for me.
As you continue to enter each moment of this day...I pray that you will truly feel and experience the loving presence of God...and that you will begin to see a glimpse of light; that shows you...that He really does care for you!
Many blessings on your day...Diane!
I want to thank you, for taking some time out of your day...to celebrate life with me!
The real reason I celebrate life...rather than a birthday; is because I will NEVER forget the day, when my best friend...Jesus Christ; walked by my deep pit of despair and reached deep within, to rescue me.
Many times, I tried to escape this pit; but only to fall back, to where I first began. It was only when I reached up for the hand of Jesus; that I found myself brought up and out of this pit of despair that I had been in, for so many years of my life.
Praise God for new life...yes...the new life I now live...for I have been set free...and you know what? He can do the same for you. Jesus doesn't play favorites...but loves us all; but the secret to it all; is to let Him do it and turn to Him for help, rather than yourself.
I found that even though I felt alone and abandoned in that pit...I really wasn't. You see...Jesus was waiting for me to reach up to Him. Reach up to Him today...He's waiting to help you...believe me I KNOW!! PRAISE HIM!!
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
