Hello everyone...and a very "Happy Wednesday" to you! Well...here I am again, with pen and paper close by...ready to begin another day with God! How about you...are you ready to include Him in your day? One thing I know; is that when I start my day with God...He's there...all throughout the day...and what a good feeling to know; that He is always close by!
The Bible verses that I am sharing with you today, are truly special to my heart because you see; I once resided in a pit of despair...one that kept me in bondage, for many years of my life. After trying to escape on my own...I came to see that I wasn't strong enough to climb the walls of that pit; but as I began to call out for help; there was One, who walked by that pit of despair...and reached deep down, to where I was...and He lifted me from the bog and mire of that pit and placed me on a firm path...one where He could steady me and lead me in His ways, rather than my own.
You know...a circumstance has a way of either placing us in a prison cell of despair or in a pit of despair, where it makes it difficult to escape these very difficult moments in our lives; but I know a God who is strong enough, to lift us out of the pit of despair, while holding the keys of truth; that can free us, from a prison cell of despair...so don't try to go it alone...for you will soon find that you cannot do it without Him.
Instead of panicking and allowing these moments to fill you with anxiety and frustration...wait on the Lord...and in His time, He will make a way of escape for you. It has now been around 17 years, since God brought me out of a pit of so much pain and heartache...and to this day, I praise Him, for not only setting me free; but giving me a new life, where I can feel even closer to Him, as I now serve Him, as a means of helping others, who may be imprisoned within their circumstance.
You know...God never promised us an easy life but He did say that He would make it easier, as we turn to Him and lean on Him, for His help...and I have truly lived this kind of a life. Even to this day, I suffer with pain; but it's no longer the way it used to be...for now, I have learned to lean on God...and He does see me through these moments. Let's face it...Satan is on the prowl...seeking whom he may devour; but when we truly come to see our Lord, as someone who is greater and stronger...One, who can be a mighty warrior...to stand before us and fight these battles; then we can make it; so rather than giving up...lift up your head to the One, who longs to fight for you and free you, from these moments of bondage.
As you continue to walk through your day...you may face uncertain moments; but instead of letting them have control over your life...let God have control over them...and you will come to see how much easier life can truly be.
Well...I hope that your day is filled completely with the loving presence of God...and that you will experience His wonder working power in your life! Take care and I will hope to see you again this evening! Have a great Wednesday...and many blessings on your day!
It's Always & Only Because of Him...
