Hello everyone...and a very happy and blessed Friday to you all! It's so good to be with you...and I pray that as we walk through this day; that we will truly come to see that God is ALWAYS there to make a way for us, even when there appears to be no way out of these circumstances we face...Amen!
Well...this morning, I didn't know if I would be with you; because yesterday, while the workers were banging on the house and doing their work...all the power went out. Yes...one minute I was sitting quietly in my living room...enjoying the moment...and the next minute I was pretty much in the dark. They were able to get most of the power on; but of course, my office is still in the dark; so until the electrician arrives, I am using Keith's computer, which is hooked up next to his desk...lol...what a week!
Anyways...while this was taking place...I found that God was speaking to me quite a bit...helping me through that trying time...and as I was thinking on this; I was quickly reminded, as to how God is there to make a way for us, even when we can't see any way out of these trying times we face, which truly helped me to experience peace, even in the midst of chaos.
As I was thinking on all that has taken place over the past 24 hours; God began to lead me to a Bible verse that is found in Isaiah 43:16, which reads... "Thus saith the Lord, which maketh a way in the sea, and a path in the mighty waters;"
You know...there can be times in our lives, when we face overwhelming situations like I have been going through...and we can find it so easy to give into the feelings that stem from these moments; but yesterday, I was reminded as to how the situation only worsens with time, when we choose to sit and reflect on every detail, of what has gone wrong.
The one new thing that I have come to learn...throughout these past 24 hours; is that fretting and worrying only takes us down another path...a path that keeps us from hearing that still small voice; that can truly point us in the right direction and walk us through these unsettled moments.
Believe me when I say...that life is never easy...and Satan even has a way of enhancing these moments, while causing us to feel overwhelmed with life; but if we could just slow down...take a deep breath and begin anew with God; then we would truly come to see, as I have; that the Lord will make a way through the troubled sea...and a path through the waters that attempt to take us down.
Have a very blessed day...and just know that the Lord is on your side...ready to step in and make a way for you! God bless!
It's Always & Only Because of Him...
