Sitting here alone in the dark knowing that God is here with me however, feeling like he is so far from me. it is 2 am in the morning and I have been awoken from my sleep with so, many thoughts. Will this world crisis ever end? Will I ever find a job again? Do I really need another roll -pack of toilet paper? How do I keep my children on the right track while they are now at home being home schooled? Will I ever get back to the gym? How do I really connect with others in person? I miss all that my church has to offer me for my soul! Does the government really know how to fix this world sickness? Do they realize that God is shaking us up, to hear from him? How do I help others when I feel so helpless myself? How many more people will die from this? As I write my thoughts on what is going on in my head. I added thoughts you may be having as well.
I am not sure why today God woke me up to write a blog nevertheless, I need to obey and put my thoughts on the computer screen. if not only for me to stay hopeful but, to maybe help someone else out that is feeling the same. Letting you know that you are not alone in having these thoughts. Please know the feelings you are having are real however, at a time like this we need to turn to Gods word to see what he says and how you will get through this. As I write this if you are not a believer of Jesus Christ. I pray this blog does not set you off in the wrong way but, you come to see how what is going on today is really a cry from God for us not to leave him out of our lives. I want you to know that I am not an Author, I am not a Pastor, I am not a large figure in my community. I am just an average US citizen like you. I do have to add that as I am telling you I am a citizen of the US, like you moreover, I am a child of the most high God. So, when I go through my trials of life. I DO BELIEV That I am not ALONE on my journey! No matter how hard they are and YES! They are for a while are harder than you could ever imagine. I was and am going through something even before this world turned upside down with this virus. I have been in my home isolated for many more months than you could even think of. nevertheless, I will save that story for another day. If you have been following my blog, you have read some of my story. But again, I will save that for another time.
You may be saying then how and why do you put your trust in God and his son! Well, as I go through all my life issues. I can tell you He (GOD) has never left me or for sake me. just like his word says. His (Gods) ways are not our ways. his thoughts are not our thoughts. He (God) is not a day late or a dollar shy. One day I hope to let you see all my trials and then seeing what the Lord Christ has done for me. Better than I could have ever imagined, but again that is a story for another day. Let’s stay on the track of what he is saying to you and me today. I do have to say these are what gets me through it all. They -Gods words are not just words he will come through for you and me. Just believe in him and see it for yourself. God never promises an easy life for anyone. Look at what he (God) even did to his own son. Jesus Christ was even put on this earth for you and me. Jesus Christ was perfect. He had no sin. However, God put him through so much for us. So, as I know this might be hard for some people. I have to say No it is not hard for me to have Faith. That he is working on my behalf in all times. Good or bad. All one needs is a mustard seed of faith. I hope you can take that leap of faith. Just a small leap is all it takes. The Bible is a great way to see all that God has done in the past and what he is going to do today. I invite you to get out your Bible if you have one and start reading. you have nothing to lose. For most of us we are stuck in our homes anyways looking for something to do. As we look to the news for updates on how the Government is going to handle this. I ask you to go one more step and look in Gods word for what he is doing right now. I promise you he will give you all that you need. Just crack open your Bible. If you do not have one there are many APPs that will give you his words. You will see no matter what you read. God and His son have always come through for his people. If you do not know where to start just ask him. He will show you as well. I ask you even in these hard times as you are looking for someone to talk to. Reach out and up to him. Do not pick up the phone today or change the TV channel for what the world is saying right now. You have heard them for days. Take a few minutes and read what God is saying. Even if you are saying. No way that book is just a book written years ago. I can promise it has lots of stories of anything you could look for like Drama, romance, thrillers, reality and so much more. If you do not believe at first, you will fall in love with Gods words. If you just try it out. You have nothing but time on your hands so, why not go for it. You, I am sure are looking for answers anyways. So why not look to him too. Since, you probably have not had any good words yet. I do believe if we all gave him a shot. We may (WILL) see this world get back in order. Faster than we are now.
Now I would like to take us to prayer.
Dear Heavenly Father,
Today I come boldly to you with all that is going on in this world. As I do know we in this world are not sure on what tomorrow will bring us. However, you are not surprised by anything. For you have created everything. I do believe you are shaking us up because we have put you on the back burner of life. As I am praying to you. I ask you to help all our leaders to come together for your words on what and how to get through this. That they see that we are nothing with out you. during this time, I hope they realize that you need to be put back into the schools, in our government, in our national anthem, anywhere that you have been taken out of. I know as some people do not believe in you. I pray as I have written they do have time on there hands. So, I pray they do find out who you are. what you can offer them as well. I do know these trials are real, but you are the only one that will truly get us back on track. I pray that you go farther with my words that I have said today and put a burden on my readers to really feel the pressure to go seek out your words. I did not give any bible versus out today because I really pray that my readers go to your word the bible. And look at different chapters to see what you have done for years. For all your children. Weather they start in the old testament at the beginning of time or they go to the New testament for what you did to your son for our sins. I ask you to take them to where you see fit. To get them to see no matter where they read you have come through for all. In your timing. That all it takes is a mustard seed of faith. for you to move a mountain in their life. As you move mountains in their life, I also pray they know and see that they need not to worry about anything even a roll of toilet paper. For if they put their trust in you. You will come through for them and the whole world. That you are the beginning and the end. That you always know all that is going to happen. I thank you that I have been saved by your son and that you give me and my readers grace. I also pray that while we are going through this all. You give all of us peace to know you are working behind the scenes to bring us together. that all things work together for them who love the Lord and that are called for your glory. That you will never leave or forsake us. that your ways are not our ways. That your timing is not our timing. That you will come right on time. Just to trust in you. I pray that we really do get this down in our soul. And even after we are back on track that we do not let you fall back out of our lives and in your sight. I also pray that anyone that reads this message that they share it with a friend, neighbor, coworker or any one they feel fit too. For if they do not know how to let someone know about you. I want all of this only for you to get the glory that we so need to give to you. we are truly nothing without you.
I pray this in your son’s name
In Jesus Christ name Amen
