HOW WOULD YOU ANSWER THIS QUESTION ~
WHO ARE YOU?
My answer would be this: I AM A CONFIDENT WOMAN OF GOD.
I have seen things and I know that God is real to my soul. I've seen impossible situations turn around to be good. I've cried myself to sleep because of things I can not change. I wake up with determination to change this day from last night. I learned to get back up again. Yes, I am real and I am alive in the year 2016 to write and speak boldly the word of God. I am not ashamed of the gospel or where I have came from in this life. I am human and I have made mistakes. I have done things to ask forgiveness of God and others. I have not always been forgiven by people, but a big yes by God. I am also confident that God continues to change me on a daily base.
I AM CONFIDENT ~
I have been broken and I have been restored. The Bible speaks of this:
Isaiah 40:28-31 New Century Version (NCV)
28 Surely you know.
Surely you have heard.
The Lord is the God who lives forever,
who created all the world.
He does not become tired or need to rest.
No one can understand how great his wisdom is.
29 He gives strength to those who are tired
and more power to those who are weak.
30 Even children become tired and need to rest,
and young people trip and fall.
31 But the people who trust the Lord will become strong again.
They will rise up as an eagle in the sky;
they will run and not need rest;
they will walk and not become tired.
A new day brings new beginnings
Forgive yourself of whatever you might be holding onto in life. I pulled away from God when I was 32 years old. I was angry, frustration, mad and I didn't understand why my brother died at 37 with cancer on Christmas Day. My only sibling and I miss him so much. Some days just seem harder than other days. I am the one who remembers his jokes, his smile and kindness. I remember him telling me to live as if it were the last day of life but plan on tomorrow. He loved Jesus with all his heart and told me to love Jesus too. I didn't know how to love Jesus who just took my brother away. I would go through some depression and heart break for almost one year. Until that day, God dealt with my heart. A sudden pull to go back to church and begin again.
Fast forward my life and now I'm here writing you. God has placed a desire to write daily and to speak words of truth. Yes, somedays are crazy hard with thinking of loved ones gone, lost of jobs, lack of money and the big wonder of why in lives. Other days seem more peaceful and resting in God in a decision made everyday of life. It's all about balance and watching where your mind goes. Time to reel it back into JESUS died for each of us and his pain was great. His life example continues throughout out days and it's up to us what we think about in life.
I don't know your story, but I know that God is real. Don't stay locked away from people in life. God connects lives for purpose and a much bigger purpose. Each day is a new day and filled with greater opportunities in life. I am not not who I was at 32 years old. I am me and I know I am a confident woman of God. I believe in miracles and I hold onto faith through all things in my life. I pray daily for the readers of my blog, your family and friends. Keep believing big and keep your focus on this being a better day.
Things are harder when they happen to you. It is you who walks through the day with what you face. But I am telling you the truth, I seriously pray for those who read this and I know that God hears your heart. I am praying for those who need jobs, money, houses, health and all the need within your life, family and friends. I also gives thanks for those who are experiencing great times of life. We need each other and it's important to realize how important you are in life. Your life makes a difference and never forget that you are important, so take care of you!
Thank you for taking the time to share a few minutes of life with me!
