Hello everyone…and a very happy and blessed Thursday to you all! I hope that your day is going well…and I pray that no matter what you may be experiencing today; that you will find comfort in knowing that God is already on the other side of your storm…Amen!
In the stillness of this early morning, I am seeing everything being made new. The trees outside my window may be standing in the same place as yesterday; but the dark clouds that once covered the sky in my yesterday, are now being replaced with rays of sunshine, as if to tell me that God is making this day into something brand new.
Do we truly take the time to see and experience the new moments that God lays before us each day…moments that can keep us lifted high above the moments of our yesterdays? One of my favorite Bible verses is found in Isaiah 43:19, which says… “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.”
Our yesterdays might have been stormy…or they may have made us feel as if we were stranded in a desert of despair; but I am here to remind you that today is a new day. Can you not see that God is bringing a new day to you? Look…He is now allowing it to spring up before you…can’t you see it…or are you still caught up in the bad moments of your yesterday.
Just as the dark clouds and rain bring a dreariness to our day…the hope that we live with; is that after the rain has passed, the sun does shine once more…and just as the sun sets from a day filled with difficulties; so does a new day begin, with new hope and new possibilities.
There is one thing that God has truly taught me throughout the hard and difficult times of my life…and that is to not remain stuck in the past moments of despair; but rather, we should continue to press on and pursue what God has before us. Maybe the storms have a way of lingering around us…and the dark clouds too; but God is on the other side of the storm…longing for us to meet Him, at a place where the sun is already shining brightly with His blessings; but one thing…we will never find Him…and the blessings He has for us, if we remain stuck within the storm.
Life isn’t easy…believe me, I know; but I personally know a God who can make it easier. If we could just stop focusing on what is happening around us and seek the new things that God is longing to spring forth through the difficult times; then that is when I believe that we will automatically gain the strength we need, to continually press on.
No matter what you may be facing today…and no matter how hopeless it may seem at this time; may I encourage you to not remain caught in the dismal moments of your yesterdays…or even these present moments; but instead, stand up with the strength of a mighty God and keep pressing on, until He has led you into the sunshine of a brand new day…one that He has had in store for you, even before the storm began.
Have a very blessed day…and ALWAYS know that God has something special for you, even if you don’t see it at this time! God bless!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
