Hello everyone...and a very happy and blessed Sunday to you! I truly hope that your day is off to a great start! Well...this morning, it's a little gray outside...with more rain/snow in the forecast...but the light of God's presence is still shining bright...deep within the heart...and that is all that matters to me today!
One thing I have come to see over time; is how dark a path can seem, when we are hit with a circumstance. These moments can make us feel as if there will be no light to guide us safely out of these moments...and that is only because we tend to get caught up in the darkness, while allowing it to dictate our thoughts and feelings.
What we need to do...is allow God's word to become a light, within these dark moments. I remember a time in my life, when I actually used God's word as a survival manual. I was caught up in so many dark moments of the past; that there was no way that I would have found my way out of that darkness alone. In fact...I wonder sometimes, if God allows these darkened moments into our lives; so that we will have a reason to not only turn in His direction...but the direction of His holy word.
If you were to look at the two Bibles I used during those darkened moments; you would truly see, how I sought God's word, to help me overcome these times; that were so out of control in my life. One thing I did notice at that time...is the more I sought His word for help...the more that darkened path seemed to brighten up. In fact...His word became like a bright flashlight...shining through the darkness...and the more I learned...the brighter it seemed to get.
No matter what you are facing...and no matter how dark and dismal these moments may seem...search God's word for the truth that can free you, from these prison cells of despair...and one thing I know; is that you will walk out of the moments that once kept you captive...as the light of God's word, will light the way before you, until He has brought you through each painful moment in your life.
Today...I pray that you will not only find God's presence to be very real in your life; but I pray that you will search for the answers you're looking for in God's word...that the light of that wisdom will brighten your path and help you, to walk out of these difficult moments you're facing!
Have a very special Sunday...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...
