Good evening everyone...and how was your Tuesday!? It's been another great day here! In fact...it's been a beautiful sunny day, which has only allowed autumn to come alive, even more within me!
You know...I've come to see...through a lot of pain and deep heartache, as to how much I truly need God in my life. It seemed like when I grew up as a young girl...I only reached out to God at meal times and for a quick devotional or when the pastor preached on Sunday; but now, I have come to see how much I need Him, every second...and every minute of the day...especially in the night hour.
Lately...it seems that as the years have pass me by; that I'm definitely not as young as I was 17 years ago, when this ministry first began. Over time, there has been different kinds of struggles and challenges, along with much pain and tiredness; but through it all...I can truly say that these moments have actually nudged me in God's direction and has taught me to lean and depend on Him even more.
I wonder how many of us lie awake at night...with thoughts swimming through our heads, when we could be sleeping. You know...it's bad enough that we deal with these thoughts during the day...but the nighttime can be even worse, when a person just wants to get some rest.
I don't know what it is completely; but I have found that the nighttime is the best time of the day to converse with God. Maybe it's because Satan is being a lazy bum, while sleeping through my talks with God...but no matter what it may be; there's something about talking with God, through the quiet and still moments of the night...and just like the verse says...He does give us wisdom in the night hour.
A few nights ago, I was dealing with a situation, in my own personal life...and I'll tell you; I felt like I was trying to get over an impassable mountain. Anyways...I decided to write...read God's word and even more...talk with God; so in my office...all alone, I began to spend time with God. As I talked...and listened for that still small voice of God within my spirit...questions were answered and a peace began to take over...where once was anxiety. By the next day, the problem was resolved...and it was only because I chose to seek God, rather than stay awake all night and focus on my problem.
No matter what you may have experienced today...and no matter what may be swimming through your mind; may I encourage you to get alone with God and let Him help you through it. One thing I know for sure...He will be near...and He will keep and sustain you through it all!
Tonight, I pray that God would help us all to leave the cares and the concerns of this day behind...to seek Him...that we may find His very best...even through these trying times in our lives.
Have a great night of rest...as you rest in the arms of God! Take care...and I will hope to be with you again tomorrow!
Goodnight...and God bless!
It's Always & Only Because of Him...
