I thought oh this will be easy, God has done so much in my life. Then I tried to think of where to begin..... Once upon a time a little girl was born to a loving mommy and daddy.
And there it stopped. The fairy-tale ended. My parents divorced when I was 5. Lots of stuff came after that... (one day, if God leads me to, I will post the full version) I could not get over how hard it was to re-visit some hard places in my life.
I thought of things that I haven't thought of in years. And some things that I know happened, I can't remember where or how they happened. Sad. Maybe my mind won't let me go there. Or my conscience has no intention of returning.
Oh God had such a plan for me.... until I came along and decided to do things my way. NOT GOOD.
Oh, but such a loving God that has a plan, one that took my mess-ups and turned them into good for HIS GLORY.
As hard as it was to write out, and re-live those tough places in my life. He reminded me of how he took each bad and made good from each one. Some, maybe I will never know the reason, but God will make good out of our bad. If only we will allow Him too.
Have you written you testimony out? If, for no one than yourself. Put down on paper to see your LOVE STORY. He loves us with an everlasting love. One that I, for the life of me cannot comprehend. But, I will accept and believe that His promises are true. He loves me and that is that!!
In all my wanderings, I was not unlike the Israelites....wandered in sin for a long time.....
I have to THANK HIM for being there no matter how far away I was. HE WAS THERE!!
And best of all He Never Gave Up On Me
