On January 13th, 2019 I started the WordPress blog called textoftheday. This captured the concept that I had originally started sending daily text to the girls in my life (my wife, daughters, and daughters in love) on July 27, 2018. I felt impressed to share and pray daily scriptures over them. I had no intention of doing it for an extended period of time.
To my surprise, I kept doing it every morning adding more people to the text groups and then several months passed. I was encouraged to make a wider platform so I started this blog 2 years ago. After a couple of weeks, I changed the name to Pastorgregonline. Now, 641 blog entries later, I am still stirred to write. I wanted to say Thank You for the privilege to share my thoughts and for your continued support and prayers.
On This Throwback Thursday, I am bringing back the first entry on January 13th, with some edits. Interestingly, A Whispers from your Father God was the first entry. This has proven to be some of my most meaningful writing.
“My tears flow endlessly; they will not stop until the LORD looks down from heaven and sees. Lamentations 3:49-50 NLT.
Tears were not created because of the need for your eyes to replenish the dryness, although water has many healing properties. Like a kettle starting to boil, the pressure has to escape somewhere; so also your tears can feel uncontrollable.
Your heart can only hold so much pain, hurt, loneliness, confusion, betrayal, and uncertainty before it needs relief. When just one of your tears hit the ground, I hear it as the sound of a mighty waterfall. I know this pain as even the world grew dark during the death of my Son on the cross, the rain fell from heaven.
Know this today, I AM near. Your pain is not so dark that I cannot see you. Your tears on your face are a reminder of how close I am to you, for I created them. I love You and I WILL walk with you through this time.
Whispers from your Father, God.
Blessings, Love y’all.
