The sun is shining brightly today. I took my coffee and sat on the porch swing early this morning. It was not daylight yet, h0wever the birds in the trees were singing their morning songs already. I love to sit and listen to the sounds of God’s creation around me. Last night I heard bullfrogs from the pond when I was in the backyard. The sounds all around my house remind me of God’s continual presence and love.
When you have lost someone you love, it is easy to feel alone. If you have accepted Jesus as your Savior, you are never alone. I am very aware that since my husband went to be with the Lord, humanly speaking, I am alone. That is, I live alone. However, in reality, I am NOT alone. It is impossible for our friends and family to be with us at all times, but Joshua 1:5 tells us “Only God can stand with us all the days of our life.” Our lifetime mates and our children can not make that promise. Psalm 16:8 states that God is at my right hand. “I have set the Lord always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.”
As a deceiver, Satan wants to make us forget that God is always with us. He wants us to look at our circumstances we are in. It could be you have lost a child, as I have. Or, you may be a young widow such as me. Satan wants us to focus on these losses and to feel like no one understands. He wants us to feel alone in our grief. He does not want us to focus on God. Do not misunderstand me. God wants us to allow ourselves to grieve. He gave us tears. He does not want us to forget our loved ones. However, He does want us to feel His presence and His comfort in the midst of our grief.
Today, keep your mind focused on God and his presence and remember that He is with you always.
If any of you readers do not have that peace and comfort to carry with you daily please feel free to contact me and I will be happy to show you how you can recieve it. May God bless you today.
