God knows what we are going through!

Good day everyone! I was led to this scripture and message this morning for everyone to reflect on. We need to thank you God for reminding us that He knows where we are, and what we are going through, and for always being near us, and for the reminder that He created us for fellowship. It’s so easy to seclude ourselves when we’re feeling down, but that’s not what He want for us.  Even though we knew it all along, but it was just so easy. Father help us to find fellowship that is encouraging, Help us to encourage others, and to not put ourselves in a place where we will be tempted to shut others out.

“O Lord, you know all about this. Do not stay silent. Do not abandon me know, O Lord.” Psalm 35:22

I find the above words so encouraging. Just to remember that the Lord sees us, He knows what we are going through, to remember that we are not alone – Wow isn’t that encouraging? However, we don’t always remember those words. It seems that so often so many people feel alone. Like no one else understands what their going through. Do you ever feel that way? Like no one even cares? In today’s world, I think it’s easy to feel like that. And I bet a lot more people feel that way then are willing to admit it.

Things don’t always go our way, things aren’t always easy, and the people that surround us hurt us with their words and actions (intentionally or not). Life is rough. It’s just that simple. When many feel alone, they usually seclude themselves even more. For many this seems like a natural response. It’s like they want to be by themselves, so that they can be lonely in peace. It sounds pretty silly to actually say that, but it’s the truth. I can’t help but wonder if that’s exactly what Satan wants from us. If he plays on our emotions to seclude us from those who could encourage us, and help us to realize that we are not alone. Like Satan wants us to seclude ourselves to keep us protected from a world that cares – after all, if we seclude ourselves, it will be harder to see that we are wrong.

I don’t know what trials you are going through, but I do know that life is rough. I also know that God sees us where we are. Satan may want us to stay secluded and lonely for as long as possible, but that’s not what God wants. He built us for fellowship (Genesis 2:18). When we seclude ourselves, we aren’t pleasing God, but helping Satan to get a foothold on our minds. God wants us to encourage one another (1Thessalonians 5:11), but when we hide away, we aren’t letting others bring us that encouragement that God wants us to have – and we certainly aren’t giving any encouragement to others.

Have a wonderful day as you as you encourage others and build them up. Love you all.

About Jesus is a safe harbor

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips. I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS! I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE! Please share this blog with others to encourage them for the glory of God!
