It's a new year and in a few days I will be celebrating the 30th anniversary of my 29th birthday! So, when you get to this point in your life which begins going way to fast, you look back and wonder what did I do wrong, what did I do right and what could I have done different.
Thank goodness I became a Christian. Because I of God I did the one thing I needed to do and that was accept Jesus as my Lord and Savior.
God has blessed my life in so many ways. I have a great husband, 6 amazing kids, 5 awesome grandchildren, 5 remarkable sister and lots of wonderful nieces and nephews and far more true blue friends than any one could ever ask for. He has given me a passion for orphans and adoptions.
This does not mean that life has not had it's peaks and valleys. 2013 was the worse year I have ever experienced. Like I said on a previous blog, if it hadn't been for my daughter graduating and my youngest grandson being born there really was nothing I would want to remember from it.
But God in all His awesomeness used 2013 and it's events to bring me to brokenness, therefore giving me the opportunity to depend and trust Him totally. For what I was going through He was the only one who was going to be able to get me through it...and He did. It wasn't easy, it wasn't pretty and it sure wasn't fun. But my relationship with Him is so amazing now there truly are no words to describe it.
So if you are reading this and going through something that seems impossible to get through remember Jesus can do all things. He wants to be there for you. All you have to do is ask. If He can love me, a sinner in true form and care about me enough to want to die on the cross for me and get me through one of the darkest times in my life then I know that I know without a doubt He will be there for you. He wants to be there for you. Just ask Him.
Until now you have asked nothing in my name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.
