God is Always Present Especially During Hard Times

It is funny how the simplest things such as an email can remind you how present God is even in the hardest of times. I’ve been going through some trails on top of my health trails. Which I was troubled by. I’ve learned to lift it up all problems to the Lord because I know it isn’t for me to hold onto or keep but to submit. Which is not easy for me to do but I’ve learned how necessary it was for me to do this. Especially with my health being in a sensitive state now. I know how easy it can plague you like any other sickness. So during these times I pray, I even get down on my hands and knees and I lift it up in prayer. I ask God to let it leave my system and I draw closer to him remembering his promise. It’s not easy and I have to struggle with it at first and even for a while. However, I’ve learned to not punish myself for this; I have learned to accept it as apart of God’s plan for my spiritual walk. It is what is shaping me in this lifetime. In how I can live by his example and show grace even when it’s hard to.

During the hard times when you pray and seek solace and peace. Messages can come to you, it can be as simple as an email, a phone call, a message on TV, That’s when I see how God is right there especially during the hardest of times. It’s just beautiful to feel the Lord’s presence. So there have been all kinds of messages two coming in the form of emails. Thank you Miss La La and Maritess. I was very blessed by this message and scripture that was simply shared with me and it gave me inspiration to share how present the Lord has been, even when it was hard to see or understand at first. He answers in so many ways.  I have found I get the most inspiration from trails. Now I can only see it as hidden blessings. This humbles me, heals me, renews me, and restores an even stronger renewed faith. This is when I feel scripture stands out in bold print, jumps out the pages and literally becomes apart of me and it softens my heart. Which always reminds me to not lean on my understanding but to lean on God’s word.
May these words bless you as it blessed me.

This is God. Today I will be handling all of your problems for you. I do not need your help. So, have a nice day. I love you.
P.S.
And, remember…
If life happens to deliver a situation to you that you cannot handle, do not attempt to resolve it yourself !! Kindly put it in the SFGTD (something for God to do) box. I will get to it in MY TIME. All situations will be resolved, but in My time, not yours.
Once the matter is placed into the box, do not hold on to it by worrying about it. Instead, focus on all the wonderful things that are present in your life now.

If you find yourself stuck in traffic, don’t despair. There are people in this world for whom driving is an unheard of privilege.
Should you have a bad day at work, think of the man who has been out of work for years.
Should you despair over a relationship gone bad, think of the person who has never known what it’s like to love and be loved in return.
Should you grieve the passing of another weekend, think of the woman in dire straits, working twelve hours a day, seven days a week to feed her children.
Should your car break down, leaving you miles away from assistance, think of the paraplegic who would love the opportunity to take that walk.
Should you notice a new gray hair in the mirror, think of the cancer patient in chemo who wishes she had hair to examine.

Should you find yourself at a loss and pondering what is life all about, asking what is my purpose? Be thankful. There are those who didn’t live long enough to get the opportunity.

Should you find yourself the victim of other people’s bitterness, ignorance, smallness or insecurities, remember, things could be worse. You could be one of them!
Should you decide to send this to a friend, thank you! You may have touched their life in ways you will never know!
Now, you have a nice day,
God

28    Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The LORD is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom.
29 He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
31 but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
Isaiah 40:28-31
