Hello everyone…and how are you doing today?! I truly hope and pray that your day has been going well…and that you will truly experience God above anything you may be walking thru at this time…Amen!!
Well…we’ve reached the end of another week and as I look back on the week, I see where the footsteps of Jesus have definitely been…and I praise Him so much today, for all He has done for me!
During this past week, I went through a time of great disappointment. In fact…these moments made my life feel as if I had gone through so much for nothing in my life. I can actually say that there was a moment when I wanted to give up, especially as I have felt so tired and drained lately from pain. As I look back on these moments, I see where Satan must have seen me as wounded prey…one that could easily give into all that God had taught me over the years.
I would say that within a day or so of this disappointing news, I found the strength through Christ, to get my head up and off the floor, from where I had fallen so low…and from there; I began to let God lead me away from this disappointment in my life. As I let go of everything except for God; that is when I began to see Him pick up every broken piece and turn my life around. He not only fixed what had been broken; but He made it into something even better…and today, I am praising God for His love and faithfulness to me!
I have many favorite verses in the Bible; but the one that is standing out in my thoughts today, is found in Isaiah 43:19…and we read… “See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”
You know…there can be times, when all we feel is the wilderness of despair and the barren wastelands that seem to take us nowhere in life; but one thing God has reminded me of this week; is that when we let go of what we see as a failure…to look to the One who is greater than failure; that is when we will see what God truly longs to do through the broken moments in our lives.
One thing I have definitely come to see about God; is that He doesn’t just repair what’s been broken within us; but He repairs these moments with brand new parts…parts that are stronger than before…and parts that can carry us through life and last for a lifetime.
No matter what you may be facing right now, just know that there is a God that is greater than these moments you’re walking through…and once you are willing to let go of everything that seems to be spelling out defeat; that is when you will once more experience a powerful God at work…One that will spring up something new within you!
Have a great day…and a great weekend too!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
