Isaiah 43:19 New International Version (NIV)
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.
I CAN SEE IT ~
The importance of a new day
Yesterdays are filled with mixed emotions for me. Sadness of loosing material things and people in my life. Joys of new beginnings and knowing God is able to handle this day just fine. I have learned that my choices of a day guides my path. Will I say yes to God everyday and do what is right? I do my best daily to turn my thoughts to God while facing real issues of life.
People like to talk bout he goodness of God and he is all we need. it might be a true statement but I need others too. I am a good encourager to others and find myself feeling alone at times. Nobody understandings my thoughts because they haven't walked through every season with me. My life is filled with 64 years of change. Every year brings another year to look back on and see the sorrows of it, but certainly the joys of it. God has been good to my family by miracles, health, finances and sticking together. My family is like sticky rice, it's hard to pull apart and sticks together through it all. I do have an amazing family and some pretty amazing friends too.
Exodus 33:14 New International Version (NIV)
The Lord replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”
Genesis 28:15 New International Version (NIV)
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.
God will watch over you and I in a new day. He speaks of the plan, the promise and the future in Jeremiah 29:11. He is able to handle our thoughts and teach us ways we never knew. New beginnings happen everyday of life. It means letting go of somethings and holding onto God's promises in others. You have something call free will. That free will guides your own thoughts and actions. God is able but you must let him be God in your life. Not everyone will go through the same things or even have the same desires of life. For example, you might want a boat and I have no desire to even be on the water. I might want a new car and you are so happy with the classic car you have. Crazy examples but it works and I'm sure you see what I mean. Desires of one's heart are different.
I heard someone say this, "your so lucky". I think people see the luck I have in my life, but they don't see this last year and all the hard it brought. Just one year filled with victories, miracles and yet the process of healing. My daughter faced a brain bleed almost year ago and we learned to live in one day. It took months of recovery, tears of prayers and praise too. Maybe you call it lucky but I call it God. I only knew to hold onto God, family and friends who walked with us. Daily a change in our lives and each day we knew we were one day closer to health for her. Nobody knows your inside story but you. Let God walk with you and if you need to take one day at time, do that. Sometimes even looking at tomorrow can be hard. God is forever present in your life if you let him.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends. I have learned this, "God is only a call away". Purpose this a good day and count blessings of this day. Please know that I care and I know somedays are just hard.
