Hello everyone…it’s so good to be back with you! Today, I can actually say that I’m doing a little better…and praise God for that! I may not be walking the way I would like to see myself walking…but I’m walking and that is truly a blessing to my heart!
Tonight, as I have been sitting here…looking into the darkness of an early night, I’ve also been thinking on what I would like to share with you today…because I’ve been mainly laid up on the daybed in my office all day, with not much to share; but as I’ve been quietly sitting here; I was reminded, as to how important it is to remain in sync with God, during times like these. In other words…I may not like being laid up…but that seems to be what God has in mind for the moment. One thing good about taking a couple days off the feet; is that rough times do smooth out…and a light of hope begins to once more shine within the heart.
You know…one thing I’m trying to do more and more; is to let God determine each day as it comes. For example…last night I was trying to figure out what I should cook for tonight…because I usually do the dinner prepping in the morning, after I’ve been off my feet all night. As I sat here in my office…trying to figure out something easy, I also found myself trying to plan today, by how I was feeling last night…that is, until I caught myself doing this. Then I said to myself…Diane, just wait until tomorrow…because tomorrow could look a lot different than right now…and you know what…it did.
As I got up this morning…there was more energy and all the feelings of last night were gone. I did re-do my plans for dinner and the dinner ended up being even better than what I had first planned; so see…it pays to take life one day at a time with God.
One of my very favorite Bible verses is found in Matthew 6:34, which reads… “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”…and boy, do I know this verse well! Sometimes I just wonder why we try to fix a tomorrow that hasn’t even arrived, while we are already on overload, with the cares of the present day. I don’t know about you; but my head doesn’t need one more thing added to it…but you know…I have found so much peace lately because I have been teaching myself to remain in the day I’m living…and even more, to live it out with God, rather than myself.
You know…I don’t know what tomorrow will hold for me…because every day is never the same with my health; but one thing I do know…as long as I take it one minute at a time with God; then I know without a doubt…that He will be there to lead me, into the right thing…at the right time. Who knows…maybe He knew I would need a couple days to rest the legs, for some unseen moment tomorrow…or maybe this is just His way of taking care of me. You know…as I look back into the past, I remember moments when I tried to make my own day work…kind of like putting a piece of a puzzle, into a place where it doesn’t belong; but there was definitely one thing bad about that…the day seemed so distorted…kind of like the puzzle, with the wrong piece…in the wrong place. If we are ever going to experience a true and lasting peace, even in the midst of affliction; then we truly need to be in sync with God; so everything can fall into its rightful place…in the way that will help us each step of the way.
I’m going to tell you tonight…that this time with you has truly made my day complete…because before I came to write you this evening, I not only asked God to allow me to write words of hope for you…but also for me. Maybe today wasn’t the day that I would’ve planned for myself; but God did…and one thing I know…if I would have tried to make a day work for myself that was not in sync with Him; then I probably wouldn’t be writing these words right now; so this time with you has been a great reminder to me, to always let God lead the way, even if it isn’t the direction I would choose to go.
I truly pray that your day will be a very special one! Please take care…and remain in sync with God…and I will hope to see ya soon!
Many…many blessings on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
