Hello everyone...and a very "Happy Saturday" to you all! I hope your weekend is off to a good start...and that even more...you will experience the loving presence of God in your day!
Last night, I sat up for a while and did some writing, which always helps me to feel deeply close to God. The lights were low...and all I felt around me was the presence of a great, loving and powerful God. I'll tell you...it couldn't have been any better!
Before writing...I poured my heart out before God and was talking with Him about my day...and even more...thanking Him for bringing me through the day. Then I began to open up about the difficult moments of pain that I had been experiencing the past few days...and through this time together, I came to see that even though God doesn't always remove the problem...for reasons that we may not always understand...He does sustain us and bring us through these times...but first, we must give it all over to Him; so He can do so.
Last night...as I sat in those quiet moments before a powerful and loving God; I was reminded, as to how God had brought me through every moment of pain. You know...it's amazing how we can become so caught up in what is going wrong at the time; that we completely bypass the moments, when He is carrying us through those tough times. We can look back on the difficult times and say to God... "Where were you when I needed you"...only to later see that He was there...holding us up and sustaining us through it all.
No matter what we face in life...and no matter what God's reasoning may be, for those difficult times; I have come to truly see that He isn't a God that just leaves us there...but He is a God who will make the way easier...and help us through those times, until He has walked us free and clear, of the difficult moments of affliction.
Today, you may be feeling as if God has forgotten you. Maybe you are wondering how you are going to make it through the difficult times that are standing before you right now. May I encourage you to just pour out your heart before God...and let Him take it from there. One thing I do know...He will not walk away, as others do; but He will carry you over the ruts in the road, until you are back to smooth pavement.
As we walk through this day together, just know that you are not alone; but rather, the God who is allowing these moments in your life; is also the God, who has control of each moment you walk through...and once you humble yourself before Him...and admit that the way is too difficult for you; that is when He will lift you up and help you through these unbearable moments your facing.
Today, I pray that you will find the strength, to let everything go in your life, except for God; that you may come to see that life can become easier...even through the difficult times.
Have a nice Saturday...take care and I will hope to be with you again this evening!
Many...many blessings on your day!
It's Always & Only Because of Him...
