Good evening everyone! I hope that your Thursday has been a nice one! I can truly say that today has been a good day for me. Lately, I've been taking a little time off in the afternoon, to let my body rest...and I can say that God is blessing those moments with less pain.
Tonight, as I've been sitting here...I've been thinking on the moments in a day, when I can truly say that I have felt God's presence close beside me. Have you ever had a moment, when you didn't know what to do about something...and then out of the blue...a thought comes to your mind; that actually helps you through that moment? I have those quite often...and I know without a doubt; that it is the still small voice of God's presence...reaching deep within my soul...helping me through those uncertain moments in my day.
I don't know about you...but I'm so glad that God is there for me...to love and care for me, in ways that I may not be able to do for myself. As I've been thumbing through God's word tonight, I came across a Bible verse in Genesis 28:15, which reads... "I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you." I can say 100% that I have experienced this verse. I would say that there were eight years in a row, where I was either going through counseling or having surgeries...and as I look back on it all; God never left me alone, until He had completely finished all that needed to be accomplished. Even to this day, I continue to feel His loving presence...taking care of me and watching over me.
You know...sometimes, I think that we feel that we have to stand tough on our own. I know that with running a ministry; that this can easily happen...while thinking that I always need to be up and at it; but there have been times, when God allowed me to see that everything could run fine on it's own...and why? Because He was the One who was running the show...not me. No matter what I go through...or face from day to day; I know that His comforting spirit will be with me...to pick up the slack and make life easier for me.
As we close this time together...you may be trying to stand tough through whatever you are facing...and may I say that this is definitely not the way to go...because first of all, we aren't as strong as God...and these times of standing tough only drain us of what little strength we do have, which will only lead us to the place, where we want to give up.
Tonight...my prayer for you; is that you will truly come to experience the loving care that God longs to give you each day. No matter how alone you may feel...or how burdensome life may seem...give it all to Him...and in exchange...He will give His all for you, in the best way possible...believe me, I know!
I hope that you will have a great night...and may God's loving peace surround you as you rest!
Goodnight...and God bless!
It's Always & Only Because of Him...
