Hello everyone...and a happy & blessed Sunday to you all! I sure hope that your day is off to a good start...and that you will truly feel God's presence along the way.
These past couple of days, I have been doing some physical therapy on my right foot...now that I know what the problem is; which has taken me back, to many laid up days in the past. As humans, we just want everything to get better instantly...don't we; but I have found, through many instances of my life; that it doesn't always happen that way.
This morning, I was thumbing through a journal of mine...where God spoke words within my spirit...and these words read... "Diane, don't always expect my ways to be what you feel at the time. Be separate from yourself and cleave to Me only." As I was reading this a few minutes ago; it was a reminder to me, as to how everything happens in God's time. When I look back on my life...and see the long and drawn out moments of pain and deep heartache that I experienced at that time...I also see how those years of affliction brought me to where I am today...so you see; God does have a reason, for everything He allows...even when it seems long and drawn out.
You know...I think that if we could only be separate from ourselves...to cleave to God alone; then life wouldn't seem like a long and drawn out event of discouragement. Instead of dreading what each day holds, while wondering how something is going to work out later...maybe it's time that we look deeply into the moments we are living; that we may learn and grow...even more through it all.
Well...I'm going to go and spend some time alone with God and my husband...and then get some rest. I hope you have a great Sunday! Who knows...maybe I'll be back later...but for now, take care...and many, many blessings on your day!
It's Always & Only Because of Him...
