Now and Then
You know sometimes you have to sit and reflect. Reflect on your past and your future. Reflect on your accomplishments and your failures. During that time you can see value in relationships that were successful and those that were lost.
I believe I have learned the most from those relationships that were lost. Or shall I say they lost. The bigger picture for me shows me that I haven't always made the best choices for myself. I chose with my flesh and not with God's plan for my life. Now that I know better, I have to do better. We perish for lack of knowledge.
I love sitting and talking with my niece about love and life. I want to pour into her good knowledge, so that she can make healthier and wiser choices. As much as I love being a mommy I realize that our family could be a lot more stable had I done things decently and in order. I get that now. It's one thing to know scripture, it's another thing to be obedient to what it tells us to do.
Personally, I don't mind sharing my story because it could be a blessing to another person. Wait for sex! Let your husband find you! Stay true to His word!
It took a long time and many experiences for me to get to this point in my life. God has kept us covered and He provides for us daily. How can I not share what He has done so that others know that all things are possible?
Every now and then as I reflect, I realize that I am living Romans 8:28...all things do work together. I know He has a purpose for my life and my children's lives. He's called me to do amazing things in through adversity. But through that adversity He is showing me how it is working together for my good and the good of others.
Because Of Him I Am
