GOD IS ALWAYS THERE!
Doubt and wonder can carry us far away from the plan of God. Our lives are often reflected back by the handprints in the sand. Not seeing how God carries us through all times of life. We must let the doubt go and hear the voice of God.
The story is written from the beginning of time to the end of time. Who can understand how the waves come in and go out. The power behind the sun, moon and stars. The sky painted different everyday of life and the wind can be felt, but not able to grab onto. So many mysteries of life and yet one God who created each of us for purpose.
I'm writing today about you (the reader) of my blog. Something drew you to this page. Now you are reading it and our lives are connected through words. It's not just words, but power of the holy spirit that wants each us to see ourselves victorious in life. We have too much to gain to loose in life. Changing our focus totally helps when we can't see the good in something. I have found that somethings will make make sense to human brain of why.
My Granddaughter Brookley, was talking about her preschool friend Lakai Kirk. He went to Heaven to live after a terrible car crash. They were only in preschool and her memory recalls it often. She cries and says I miss him Grammie. Then the questions come about God, Heaven and Why. I told her that Heaven is a place where people live in peace and feel no pain. Jesus is there and the Bible says that there is a time to be born and a time to die (Go to Heaven). Her reply was, "but Grammie I miss him". I think that life and death is a hard thing to explain to a child or adult.
That is where the poem in the picture comes into play. Along the sand of life, we will find one set of footprints. The one that belongs to Jesus and he carries us through hard stuff of life. I pray daily for Lakai Mommy and was only 25 years old. The loss of a child is unexplainable to a heart that hasn't walked that path. Yet, we can relate to the loss of a loved one in many ways. Maybe today you need God to carry you through some hard stuff of life. God answers us from the beginning to the end of life, that he will be faithful and help protection us. I would ask that you pray for Ariel (mommy of Lakai) and the complete family and friends. It's hard to understand and peace can only come from God.
As you enter a new day, allow God to carry you through this day with peace.
Sometimes in life it's best not to ask why somethings happen. There is no answer other than a time to be born and a time to die. My heart hurts with Ariel and others who face death way to soon with loved ones. I could list lots of people who rest in Heaven now way too soon. Their age number is young and families are broken. God is the only one who brings joy back into a heart while facing a missing link of family/friends. God promises to CARRY YOU through it and be there always.
Anger, frustrations and questions carry us too far the opposite direction at times. Allow God to bring you back into a place of comfort and carrying you again. The sand is a great feeling between your toes, but it's a greater feeling knowing you are being carried when life is just too hard.
I also realize that not all of you face this message today, but you might know someone who has faced it. My prayers are with you, your family and friends. It's never too late to begin again and rest in the plan of God for your life. I thank you (the reader) for reading this, planting hope of being carried to a new place in God and resting in the outcome. Take a deep breath to freedom of mind and soul.
When life gets hard, read the poem on footprints again. It's not the complete answer of why, but God is there to carry you. My heart is feeling heavy this morning for family and friends who are facing a tough day ahead. Asking largely that God brings peace to hearts and brains. Today is the day that the Lord has made and the Bible says to REJOICE and be glad in it. Looking out my window to see a calm in the air, sun shinning and hope arises. I know that God carries me on great days too. I don't know how others live without him or the peace of knowing Heaven awaits someday.
Share your example of kindness to others. We never know who just needs a smile or someone to hold a door open for them.
