Hello everyone…and a very happy and blessed Wednesday to you all! I sure hope that your day is going well…and I pray that as we begin this time together; that we will truly come to know in our hearts that God will ALWAYS be there for us…no matter what we may face in this life…Amen!!
First off…I would like to say that I am so blessed to be with you today; because actually I shouldn’t be here…and why…because today is normally a grocery shopping day for me. In fact…I have a story to tell you about this, which actually began last week.
Lately, I have really been struggling with the pain issues in my legs and feet, along with being tired, which has made it even more of a struggle for me to leave the house. As most of you may already know…Keith and I were taking a taxi because neither one of us is able to drive. Anyways…on shopping day, I would have to wear uncomfortable clothes…get in a car, with one leg that doesn’t bend anymore; then I would have to go through the entire store and shop…and then wait maybe a half hour or more, for the taxi to pick us back up. Don’t get me wrong…I have been very thankful for the transportation; but at the same time, it has gotten to a place where I have truly been struggling to do this.
Anyways…one night, as I talked with Keith…I became so discouraged; that I actually was willing to give up food, just to be able to stay home. That night, as I sat quietly alone with God, I did like King David and poured out every thought and feeling before God and asked Him to help me. I knew that He could truly see into my heart, as to how I was feeling…and so I just opened up my heart completely before Him.
I would say that within a few days, I began to get an idea that maybe I could order the food online and then have Keith pick it up in a taxi; but you know what…God had something even better in mind. As I went on this one particular site, I came to see that they not only had a pickup service…but a delivery service to. I’ll tell you…my heart was astatic…and immediately, I knew that God was at work…answering my prayer.
To make a long story short…I ordered everything I needed on Saturday, in the comfort of my home…and yesterday, a lady brought everything to our door. I’ll tell you people…when God does something like this; it’s as though the heart can’t contain the thankfulness and expression of love that is automatically being offered up to this great…loving and mighty God…a God who can truly do all things…praise Him!
This morning, as I was thinking back to all that God has done for me; He began to lead me to a favorite Bible verse in Psalm 34:6 and we read… “In my desperation I prayed, and the LORD listened; he saved me from all my troubles.” I found out that in the moment of my desperation, the Lord was listening to every word, while looking deep within my heart…and once this connection between Him and I began; from there, He began to go into action and save me from all my troubles.
You know…there is one thing I know…God is always ready and willing to listen to the needs of our hearts; but in order for Him to help us, we must choose to let our needs go into His loving and powerful hands. Now isn’t the time to hold tightly to what’s wrong…or expect God to just do it on His own; but rather, now is the time to open up ourselves before Him…and be willing to sit before Him…and lay every thought and feeling at His feet. As we sacrifice everything before Him in this way; that is when He can truly pick up the rubble and brokenness and piece our lives back together…only this time, in a much better way.
As we close this time together, I pray that no matter what you may be facing; that you will stop right now and cry out to a God who is already listening…One who can save you from all your troubles.
Have a very blessed day…and remember…God is waiting to help you right now! God bless!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
