My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord.
And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine.
For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord.
They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.
With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.
Your hand will guide me, and your strength will support me.
As much as we want to do things on our own, it’s easier to allow God into our minds and into our hearts to make situations better to understand. Being a wife and mother it is extremely hard to turn to God without making a move, comment, thought, speak before I think, or give emotional attitude. But I have gotten better at this action, now that I have grown in God, I’m able to pause and pray and ask Him what he wants from my situation and how I can be used in it. Studying God’s word and applying it to your life with help you to TRUST in Him when something comes your way. Change doesn’t happen over night But once God gets ahold of your heart, he can radically transform you into something POWERFUL!
God’s Way is Better!
A label is a soul-tattoo that is ingrained deep in our hearts, so much so that it determines how we see ourselves. And how we see ourselves determines how we live. -Derwin L. Gray
Now maybe you’re learning: the spirit is willing,
but the body is weak.
Watch and pray and take care that you are not pulled down during a time of testing.
Fear, Hurt, Broken, Abandon, Alone, Lost, Torn, Wondering, Closed, Distanced, Angry, Bitter, Abused, Confused, Shattered, Belittled, Hatred, Emotionless.
These are words that would describe my life growing up. As you can imagine it wasn’t very nice. It was hard growing up as a child, but I made this far. See all that evil I went thru as a child was for good. How is that you say, well every situation I went thru as a kid or as a teen and even as a single parent was for a reason. I can share with others what God has brought me out of and what goodness He has for others that might have been like me. He is Faithful and comforts that emptiness inside I hide for so long. He has restored so many relationships that where broken. He never once left me on my own, that whole time he was with me. Now I can relate to other women that are struggling and Love them because God loves us. I hope to one day counsel women and travel the world and speak to hurting women all over and let them know
What was intended for Evil, God used for Good!
Peaceful, Joy, Love, Happiness, Strength, Boldness, Courage, Prayer, Wisdom, Comfort, Understanding, Trust, Faith, and most of all I Have Jesus.
This is my life now!
