Hope For Today! April 9


Today is going to be a great day!

Believe in Miracles they happen everyday!

Even though your journey often feels long and hard your steps are directed by the Lord. When the path that lies before you is filled with uncertainty that’s when you need to rely on Him. Hope For Today! was birthed from making a choice one January morning when, day after day, I had no purpose, no reason to get out of bed. I thought, I’m not the only one in this world that feels this way and it’s time for me to stop feeling sorry for myself and to start to help people that are going through the same thing that I’m feeling. I felt loneliness, isolation, depression and despair, not really having any reason to feel that way. Even if you have people who love you and only want to see you happy, there are times you don’t have any joy or peace in your life. I don’t know if anyone can relate to how I was feeling but I knew that God had more for me in this life then the life I was living. I decided to change my thinking, my attitude and trusted God to lead me where He wanted me to go. I got up, started to exercise every morning, read God’s Word, prayed, started my blog, listen to praise and worship music to feel God’s presence intimately and trust Him to determine my steps. He is taken my brokenness and is mending my heart.

Do you know the difference between a priceless diamond and a lump of coal? A diamond is a lump of coal that made good under pressure, the trouble it endured made it valuable. You need to write that down somewhere. The trouble it endured made it valuable. That is incredible! When you think about the trouble we go through in life, if we allow God to use us He will mold us into something beautiful to be a shining light in this world.

“We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed.”
‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭4:8-9‬ ‭NLT‬‬

God is Faithful! Day by day, I seek Him for direction, ask Him to fill me with His unconditional love, joy and peace and He is opening doors. Yesterday, being at the beach, listening to the waves and spending time with God, it brought to my mind The Inspirational Poem. “FOOTPRINTS”

It was then that He carried you!

The Lord directs our steps, so why try to understand everything along the way? (‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭20‬‬:‭24‬ NLT). As the Bible says, why do we try to understand everything along the way? The Lord is directing our steps. Trust Him today and take His hand for help and guidance, you are safe in His arms. Though you may not know the way you should go, you do know the One who is the Way. Because He is sovereign over your life, He will direct your steps even when they seem random to you. Talk with Him about your uncertainty, your fear of making wrong decisions. The most important choice you make moment to moment is to stay in communication with Him. This is how you cling to Him. This is how you trust His guiding Presence to keep you safe.

Believe In Miracles! Blessings! Melissa
