EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
As I sit in my chair each morning during prayer and devotions, I ask God what I should write to you unless He’s already downloaded it to my brain during the night. Before I set out to write each day, I seem to reflect on my own life and the teachable times God has given to me, allowing me to use those moments as reflections for His glory. I love to ponder the “Goodness of God.”
There have been times, darker than I wish to describe from my past but nonetheless, God tells me I should share them and share the victories of overcoming my past with His love in the present and share it from my heart.
I believe that God allows us to go through dark times so that we will reach out to Him and find Him in our present situations. He also wants us so sure of Him~that we NEVER doubt Him! We learn His promises to us are true when we read His Word. Some of us are experiencing dark times through this scary place within our world. I encourage you to RUN to His word!!! Your answers are there.
Isaiah 45:3 God tells us there are treasures hidden in the darkness!
Treasures? ~ YES! ~
When you reach to God in the dark times of your life, you will find His hand waiting to grasp yours. I will be the first to say as I’m reflecting this moment, “God finds my hand in every hurt, every disappointment, every sadness and every doubt in the darkness! … and guess what? He holds it and I feel it. It is so comforting!
I know God will grasp your hand too and you will find His light in any dark situation if you trust Him; you can trust Him by opening up His Words of truth and the beauty of it is that His light never goes out! He speaks to you there and it’s so reassuring. He’s always with you! Trust Him more.
The enemy needs to know you are not afraid of the dark and that you will shout your praises to God even louder in these times!!! You can do this! Shout praise to God if you’re in darkness right now! I promise you He will take your hand and lead you through it and you too will say, “Only God”.
