Hello everyone...and a very "Happy Monday" to you all! I sure hope that your week is off to a good start...no matter what you are walking through at this time! For me...I am feeling better than yesterday morning...praise God!! Yesterday, I just rested...lounged around the house and stayed off my legs...and today is looking much brighter. You know...sometimes, we just have to slow down and rest in the arms of a God, who can care for us, when we just can't do it for ourselves...praise Him!!
You know...it seems like there are so many...including myself; that are facing the hard and difficult struggles of a circumstance. We tend to become sucked up into the problem, rather than rising above it. In other words...we become caught up in each symptom of the problem; that before we know it...we have allowed those symptoms to remain in control.
One thing I have come to see...through the difficult times I've faced in my life; is that we should never remain weak with the problem; but rather, we should allow God to strengthen us even more within that problem...and when we can focus on a God who is there to give us aide, during these difficult times...then the courage will be there, to help us press on...despite what is standing before us.
I remember a time in my life, when I focused on every little detail of my problems...and I did it to the place, where God got pushed out and it was just me and the problem...suffering each day together. May I encourage you, from what I have learned in life...to not do this; but instead, lean on God's strength and let Him help you to remain above the problem...where you can find the courage to keep walking forward, until He has completely walked you out of the circumstance. In doing so...you will come to see that you have now gained a strength that is even stronger, than when the circumstance first began to enter your life.
As we walk through the start of a brand new week...I pray that we will start out on the right foot...one that will have the strength and courage to press on, with the help of God...AMEN!!
Have a great Monday...and remember to look for God's best, rather than what is attempting to take over your life...and I will hope to be with you again this evening!
Many...many blessings on your day!
It's Always & Only Because of Him...
