This last week has been a trying one. Not that it has been out of kilter with troubles and worries. Just that it has been a busy week and it has been a bit difficult in staying on top of the study. I have not been able to participate as I would love to, but I am able to keep up with my readings and devotions. I have a wonderful supporter who brings beautiful tidbits of the study to me almost every morning through email and text, which gives me a desire to join in again, no matter what is happening around me. 🙂 Thank you again my sweet daughter. I love this devotion you shared with me as well.
Well, I don’t know where to begin but to say…AWESOME. This study has already proven to me a miracle for me. I joined this study thinking that I was going to get to share study time with my daughter who is almost 2000 miles away and that we would somehow be side by side on this actually talking to each other during the study, and to lose the weight I have been trying to lose for going on 8 years now. What the Lord has shared with me today though is that He has a much bigger picture He wants to paint in my life. That I wasn’t even close with the reason’s I joined this study. 🙂 I am so excited to reestablish my relationship with my Lord and watch how He makes changes in my life that will glorify Him. I feel that I have a lot of work to do within my life, but I finally know again that I am not alone and that He will be with me every step of the way. I can’t tell you how much that means to me after the failures I have made in my life. My God is amazing and so full of grace and mercy to welcome me back with open arms and no reservations.
He has promised me that this is going to be a journey for me that I will never forget. 🙂
To add a little more encouragement was our theme song: “Overcomer” WOW…what a message. I love this song for so many reasons. I am inspired and almost overwhelmed with the significance to this song. All I can say is: “Thank you God for thinking of everything”. 🙂
YEP, JUST ONE MORE DAY. I WAS READING PROVERBS 31 TODAY, NOW MIND YOU IT HAS BEEN A WHILE SINCE I’VE OPENED MY BIBLE, AND WHAT I FOUND WERE SO MANY REASONS FOR ME TO BE HERE. I HAVE MISSED MY GOD SO MUCH, AND AM BUSTING WITH HAPPINESS THAT HE HAS REACHED OUT TO ME ONCE AGAIN THROUGH MY DAUGHTER AND THIS STUDY. I WANT TO BE BETTER THAN I HAVE BEEN IN THE PAST AND BETTER THAN I WOULD HOPE TO BE WITH MY OWN HOPES. GOD HAS SO MUCH MORE FOR ME THAN WHAT I HAVE BEEN ALLOWING IN MY LIFE. I HAVE BEEN SHORTING MYSELF OF HIS BLESSINGS AND I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT LEARNING WHAT IT IS HE HAS FOR ME TO MOVE FORWARD IN MY WALK WITH HIM.
