Good evening everyone...I truly hope that you had a nice weekend...and a very blessed Sunday! It's been a great day of rest for me...and even the pain levels have dropped...so Lord, I praise you tonight, for all you are doing for me!
This evening...I've been spending some extra time with God, as we are about to begin another new week together. As I've been sitting here...looking out my window...I noticed that there are still leaves on our big maple tree...and while looking at them; I began to think on how they seem to be holding on for dear life. Even though they have turned color and are looking a little rugged...they seem to refuse to leave the tree and fall to the ground. No matter how windy it gets...or how battered they become...they hang on...never wanting to give up on the life they have enjoyed since spring.
As I continued to think on this...God began to show me that life can seem the same for us. We can feel battered and beaten, by the winds of circumstance...and we can even feel as if we can't hold on another moment...but are we willing to look beyond the circumstance and hold onto life anyways? I'll tell you...there can be days, when I feel like these ruffled leaves I'm looking at. In fact, I have moments, when I feel as if the stem that connects me to God is about to give way, while I go tumbling to the ground; but then God gives me a reason to hang on...and that reason is Him.
As we begin another week; there may be some who can't take another step forward. Maybe you feel as if you just can't hang on another day. May I encourage you, to not give up on life; but instead, take hold of a God...who will never let go of you; but will instead, love you through it all.
You know...life does have a time, when it comes to an end...just like these leaves; but until God appoints that time for us, can we say that we are willing to hang in there with Him. May I encourage you tonight, to let God be the strength you need...and no matter what you feel; let His arms of love suspend and sustain you through it all.
Well...time to get back with God and then get some more sleep. I sure hope that you will have a great night of rest...and that you will wake up with a smile...one from God's heart to yours!
God bless...and goodnight!
It's Always & Only Because of Him...
