God, Are you there?

Hello, Everyone! It's been awhile since  I have written on my blog! Please forgive me.
 I want to touch down tonight' to all of you who may be going through difficult times.
 It may be depression, a physical ailment, financial problems, loss of a loved one, bankruptcy,  addictions, feelings of despair, ( I could go on and on) but the point of the matter is, how many of you have had those moments, where you just look up towards the sky, and asked "God, where are you"?  I'm battling one of these moments myself.
Facing a possible biopsy on my thyroid in Feb. I have never been the type of person, to question God. But from the time I found out I had the nodules on my thyroid, back in Sept, I have been asking this nagging Question in the back of my mind, "God, are you there?
 Of course, I have plenty of time, until my appt. in Feb. to ponder this question over and over in my mind. Is it fear of the unknown? 
 Why is it, it seemed so much easier to trust God, and not fear back in biblical days?
 My sister, Cheryl & I have often talked about this.
 Take the woman with the issue of blood.
 Jesus was in the midst of the crowd, and she knew she had to press through the crowd, to touch the hem of his garment!
  Can you imagine to have lived back then, and being physically able to walk up to the dear one,
who died for us, and suffered stripes on his back , for our healing?
 Let me assure you, folks. That same Jesus is still the same today! 
 I am talking to myself, along with you all.
 What makes us so full of doubt?
 I have been asking myself, this question. Yes, true.
God is now a spirit, but that doesn't mean he is not the same God that healed, and performed miracles, back in bible days.
 I have witnessed miracles many times. I never will forget, when I was a child, I had two big boils in the corners of each one of my eyes.
My parents did not believe in doctors, back then. I -had that child like faith, and was anointed & prayed for, and God healed them, never to return again!
 Yes, I can't say it wouldn't be easier to have God here in the flesh. But, praise God, he is on the throne, looking down on us, and he sees what we go through.
 That is why he is able to relate to what obstacles we face in our everyday life.
 He once walked on this earth, and knows what  we go through as human beings.
Heb. 2:18 says, For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succor them that are tempted! When we are tempted to doubt, and have a lack of faith, we need to remember this verse.  No, matter what we go through, God is still able to do exceeding and abundantly above, all that we ask or think according to the power that worketh in us!
 Cling tightly, to that nail scarred hand, (even though we can't physically see it, we know it's there)during troubled times.
 All those that know the worth of prayer, please pray for me.
 I want to be free of fear and doubt!
Thank God He made a way for our escape.
 Remember, my friend, there's not a problem on earth that our almighty God can't solve.
So, now by faith, look towards the heavens, and declare,
"God, I know you're there, and you will see me through!
 Until next, time, God bless Ya'll. 


  1. My dear sister, I sit here with tears in my eyes, as I read your words! You will never know how much I needed this tonight. I am in such a battle with the enemy, and I NEEDED to hear what you said. THANK YOU for minding God and writing this! Thank you for reminding me of Mom and Dad and their faith and how they trusted God fully and how HE came on the scene and answered their prayers. They are gone, and things seem so hopeless. But, surely He is still the same God. I know He is going to see you through this thyroid problem. He has a work for you to do...and I need you so much! You are such a great comfort to me, and having you, is like still having a part of Mom. Thank you for all you are to me. I love you with all my heart, Cheryl

    1. Cheryl, I'm so thankful, for you, my Dear sister, who is so faithful to me, and always commenting & encouraging me about my blog! The words truly come from my heart, and I know beyond a shadow of a doubt, that God is going to see you through your illness, as well. You are very near and dear to my heart, as well! May we always remain close, and keep our sisterly bond, as Dear Mom would want!
