Hello everyone…I hope you’re having a great day…and that your Monday was a good one too! My Monday was its very best…and I truly felt the presence of God in my day…so let me tell you all about it…
Lately, I have been cleaning our home every other week, due to the condition of my legs. Anyways…this was the week to tackle the house and get it back in order…but how would I do it, with all the pain I’ve been experiencing.
By Sunday evening, I was trying to figure out a way that would make it much easier to get through…and after some time of thinking about it…I said to God… “I need your help…would you show me how to get this work done?” I would say that within a short time, God began to speak to my heart…and before I knew it…ideas began to flood my thoughts. Now I’m cleaning one room a day…and then I’m spending the remainder of the day off my feet…serving Him. What a plan!!
You know…I remember a time in my life, while being confronted with something like this; that I would just get upset…throw my hands into the air and give into the problem. Now, I’ve come to experience a God, who is there to help and sustain me, in time of need; so I go running to Him…and you know what? He ALWAYS has the best ideas! In fact…as of today, my living room is looking really nice…and tomorrow, the office will be next. I may not be able to do things in a normal fashion…and maybe I’m little slower than others; but at the same time, I’m showing Satan that he cannot defeat me…or take me away from life.
A Bible verse that truly has brought hope into my heart, many a time; is found in Isaiah 43:19…and we read… “See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”
You know…just because we can’t see a way before us…and just because a mountain of a problem is blocking our way; that doesn’t mean that we have permanently come to the end of the road. In fact…that just means that we need someone stronger and greater, to make the way before us…one that can help us to keep pressing on in life.
As I sit here this evening…watching the sunset, while enjoying my time with God; I know that no matter what comes over that horizon…or no matter what kind of a storm attempts to take me down; there is a way out, of what seems to be so hopeless…a way that God only knows…and when I let go of what I can’t see; that is when I will truly see a powerful God carve an open path before me…one that can lead me on, into the very best that He has just for me.
Right now…I praise God, for always being there for me! The road hasn’t been easy to walk down over the years…and there may be ruts and obstacles along the way; but I am still making it…and it’s not by my means; but only by a God, whose loving and sustaining strength; is carrying me, from one day into the next.
As you walk through your day…a moment may come, when you feel as if you have come to the end of the road; but instead of sitting there…and giving into what you can’t see before you; look up to the One, who is there to help…sustain and guide you through the tough moments of life! Praise Him!
As we close our time together, I pray that you will have a great day…and that you will remember that God is ALWAYS there for you! Take care and I will hope to see you soon!
Many blessings on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
