Hello everyone...and a "Happy Tuesday" to you all! What a beautiful late summer day the Lord hath made! Praise God that His presence can be truly felt, in everything that surrounds us...that is, when we choose to seek Him, with all our hearts!
One thing I have learned through the gift of writing; is that this gives me a time in my day, to look beyond my own thoughts and seek God's face. I know that when I seek Him...I draw not only from His presence...but from everything that is contained within this powerful God.
Last night...I had some great moments with God...before going to bed! As I walked through the house...turning lights off and preparing for some rest...I had no plans on writing...only talking with God, as I always do before bed.
As I got into bed and was preparing to share my heart with God...words began to flow through my thoughts and before I knew it; He had shared His thoughts through my pen and the notebook I wrote in...and one of the quotes He gave me was this... "It's not about focusing on the loss we experience in this life; but rather, it's what a person can gain through the loss; that makes them an overcomer." Just think...if I wouldn't have continued to seek God; I would have missed out on this beautiful thought...along with some other thoughts, which will be posted on "A Journey of Thoughts from God's Heart to Yours"...tomorrow morning.
You know...we will never truly experience this powerful God at work in our lives, if we only sit and dwell on everything that has gone wrong. Each day, we need to go beyond the difficult moments and reach out to a God, who can give us His benefits of peace...strength...and so much more; and once we connect to Him in this way, we will truly long to seek Him even more, which will help us to remain distant, from the thoughts that can take us deeper into despair.
Today, I pray that we will focus more on God and seek Him with all our hearts, while we leave the cares and concerns of this day with Him; that we may be able to leave weakness behind...to gain a strength that can help us to keep pressing on!
Have a great day everyone...take care and I will hope to be back with you again this evening!
Many blessings on your day!
It's Always & Only Because of Him...
