Hello everyone…and a very happy and blessed Tuesday to you all! I’m so glad you stopped by today for a visit…and my prayer is that we will leave this time together…knowing in our hearts that Jesus is all we need…Amen!!
One thing I have come to see, over many years of pain and deep heartache; is that Jesus never grows tired of us. Others may walk away and abandon us; but Jesus has a different kind of love for us…one that can go beyond the things we experience in life…to love and care for us anyways.
This morning, as I’ve been once more struggling with my health; I was quickly reminded, as to how much we truly need Jesus…and I don’t know about you; but I find great comfort in knowing that He is always right beside me.
As I was beginning my time with you this morning; God led me to a Bible verse in Psalm 16:5, which reads… “You, LORD, are all I want! You are my choice, and you keep me safe.” Just think…there is a God who is always there for us…One who is all we need…One who can surround us with love, safety and compassion, especially during the difficult times. What more could we ever ask for?
When I look back on my life, I remember many times, when I would’ve gotten angry at God, rather than turn to Him with a heart of trust. You see…I was so hurt by what was taking place at the time; that the only thing I found myself able to do; was to express myself in a way that only enhanced my situation.
So many times, I think we become so caught up in why these moments are taking place and what is happening; that we completely bypass the thought that Jesus is still there for us. Yes…maybe He allowed these moments into our lives; but He’s still there…longing to walk with us through these difficult times; but in order for that to happen, we must long for Him too…and come to truly see that we need Him. One thing that I have learned through this experience; is that the more we long for Jesus…and the more we feel the need for Him to be in our lives…this is what actually allows our relationship with Him to grow and flourish even more.
You know…we should never wait for heaven…before getting to know the One that we will spend all of eternity with. In fact…we shouldn’t see heaven as the only cure, when Jesus is with us right now. I don’t know about you; but there can be times when I say to myself or Keith… “I just want to go to heaven and be free from all this pain and tiredness.” Even though this is a deep desire of mine; I have to remind myself too…that I don’t have to wait for heaven, to find the remedy I need right now.
Maybe today, you are also going through some very trying times in your life…times that can make life seem so overwhelming and out of control. May I remind you…as I was reminded this morning; that all we need during these difficult times is Jesus. Just think…Jesus has every answer to every need; but we will never find that answer, when we are turning inwardly to ourselves…or even focusing on the problem. In fact…I have come to see that reacting to a problem in this way, only allows the problem to control us even more.
What we need today…is someone who is greater than the problem…One who will listen to us and never walk away…and One who can encourage us and help us through these difficult times…and the only One I know, who can do all of this and more is Jesus Christ.
As we close this time together, I pray that you will truly come to see, as to how much you need Jesus in your life…and that you will come to see even more, as to how much He longs to be there for you too! God bless!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
PS…Due to a busy Wednesday, I won’t be on the blog; but I will see you again on Thursday. Take care and many blessings on your day…Diane
