IT'S GOD AND HE IS AWESOME

I know that each day is guided by God. I know that I am always in awe of the miracle I see when something happens in my life and I can see God's hands in it. Most of what I see are always Godincidence's not coincidences. I am thankful to Him for allowing me to see His goodness in this way. I always hear people say "God spoke to me" and I thought why can't I hear Him? I thinks it's because I am a visual person and this is how He speaks to me. These signs are how I comprehend my God and this is my favorite part of being a Christian. We all have different relationships and journeys with Him.

So I keep wondering how I am going to be able to actually touch people with my blog spot. I have wisdom and feelings that I often think will be of help to the people going through difficult times in their lives. But let's face it, I can't just randomly write the healing words and just hope that someone comes upon my blog spot and reads it, giving them comfort during their sadness. Well today I realized that maybe my help will come by reading their blog spot and my comment to them will comfort their needs at that moment. I am not a seeker of sadness or those who have tragedy in their lives but I have the desire to heal the pain in the hearts of those who have sadness. Do you understand what I am saying? This is where I believe God has come in and has led me to them.

So I start to follow a blog spot I heard about that is full of heartache. (Some of you know who I am talking about) I comment to them my feelings because I so desperately want to heal their pain. From one site I may be led to another site who is also suffering from heartache because for some reason or another they met through their grief. I know that God had the person who told me about this blog do so because I needed to be there reading each day until the next blog appeared. There is a reason for this because He knows the desires of my heart.

So today I spent hours reading the next blog getting to know this person, their family and their tragedy. I send my comments of concern, inspiration and prayer for their loss. Today I received the nicest e-mail to a comment I had left and it made me feel hopeful that maybe I can touch the lives of others through reading their blog spot. I had something to say that may have given them a tiny moment of peace.

I bet you are a good listener as well. I'm afraid that I am not always so - I try to remind myself that sometimes listening is all that is needed and not an answer. Your willingness to "reach out and touch" others is your gift. Please continue to share it.

The connection is part of what this whole blog thing is about. Community. Caring. Reaching out. Feeling like you are not alone.

Good job, Friend!

I'm so proud of you! God will always use you for His purposes as long as you are a willing vessel. It's so neat to see that you are challenging yourself in this area and wanting God to grow you. It makes me think about how I can do things like that better in my life!

You are a wonderful example to me and I've always said you're like a mom to me. Keep being faithful to God and he will direct you every step of the way! :)
