Good evening everyone…and how are you all doing tonight? I sure hope that you had a nice Monday! As I’ve been sitting here this evening…before writing you, I’ve been thinking back on my life and how God has brought me much further; then I could have ever imagined…and I praise Him so much tonight, for being my everything!
Lately, it seems as though the years of deep pain and heartache have taken their toll on me. It was actually 55 years ago; that I began this long journey with God. No matter what I have had to walk through…and no matter how much I never thought I could make it through…God has truly stood on His promises to me, as He continues to bring me through this life of struggles and challenges.
Tonight, I would like to share a Bible verse with you that God has placed upon my heart…and it’s found in Romans 8:18…and we read…“For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.”
You know…the day to day struggles we face, can seem so overwhelming at times…to the place, where we feel as if nothing will ever be good again; believe me…I know. As I was talking with my husband yesterday, I was saying that there were truly some tough moments in my life, when I just couldn’t see me coming through them…but once more, a powerful God stepped in and made a way; where I just couldn’t see one at the time.
Now…life seems to be slowing down for me…and the struggles that once seemed easier to handle, are now becoming more difficult to get over. The body is growing tired…and things just don’t seem to function the way they once did…but no matter what…I know that my God is there for me…and He will continue to lead me down this path that I have been on for most of my life, until I take the final step into heaven. Just think…all these moments of suffering that we endure will never be able to compare to the glory that will soon be revealed to us. For the one who truly knows Jesus as their Savior…a time will come, when the hardships and sufferings of this world will cease to rage no more within us, as we enter a place, where there will never be pain or heartache again…and the way I see it; is that Satan may attempt to knock on heaven’s door…but the door will remain sealed for all of eternity…where no evil will enter our lives again. I don’t know about you; but what I have had to face, through the difficult times of my life, will be worth it all in the end.
No matter what you are facing right now…and no matter how life may seem for you right now; just remember that all of this can never compare, to what awaits you in heaven…and for some reason; that makes all these moments of suffering worth it all.
Well…I’m headed for a nice dinner…and probably an evening of rest; but I have truly enjoyed sharing my heart with you tonight! Take care…have a good night…and I will hope to see you tomorrow!
Goodnight & God bless!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
