I gotta be honest I am scared to death to write about my life right now.
Scared that by typing it out I will be be admitting it's all true.
Oh, I have come to be joyous in the situation after all I have been instructed by God's Word in 1 Thes. 5 :16-18 "to be joyful always, to pray continually and to give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you [me] in Christ Jesus"
I am giving thanks.
Some times things in life come our way and make NO sense at all.
Life can go against what we've been praying for,
it can change our path in a second. Life is certainly an every changing adventure.
As I face a mountain before me, a mountain I wonder how I'll climb; as I look ahead I look back.
Not back in regret or condemnation.
Not back in fear or a desire to live back there.
No, I look back today and know without a shadow of a doubt that God has been there.
Did I type that correct? Did you hear that clear?
God has been there.
Where has He been in your life?
In mine He's been there when I was
when I thought my marriage would end,
when I thought my son would be seriously sick,
when bones were broken and hearts were healed.
He's been there when my parents divorced,
when I moved for the 7th time in 10 years.
He was there when I was worshiping another god,
when I told Him I didn't wanna believe,
when I waited,
when I jumped in too soon,
when I failed,
when I wept,
when I laughed.
He was there and I am here.
I am here only because He was there..
See, as the titled of this blog states, as the prophet Samuel said, "Thus far the Lord helped us."
When I see a blur of a week gone by and a future of uncertainty lie ahead, I rest on that fact: "Thus far the Lord helped us."
Why would a never changing God change.
Why would I not move forward with confidence and in victory.
Why would I not have peace at the base of this mountain when "Thus far" has been covered by the hand of God.
Be encouraged, I promise I'll share more.
This is a process.
Love you all!
