Have you ever been through a situation where you walked away saying, “if it wasn’t for God, I wouldn’t have made it through that”, I feel that way about the first 20 years of my life. Even though I knew nothing of God those years, I know that if God hadn't had His hand on my life, I wouldn’t be here to write this. As I look back, I know God always had a plan and purpose for me and He was preparing me years before His name would ever roll off my tongue.
He challenges me to be more, love deeper and to not waste the gifts and talents He has lent to me. As much as I don’t always want to walk through the season of healing and be reminded of who I once was, the pain I have faced, who I have lost and my own short comings. I know it is exactly where the Lord would have me and wants me at that very moment. He wants the best for me “us” and He knows some seasons will hurt and some will be joyous, but all will help strengthen and bring each of us closer to Him. I will remain thankful that He loves me and even when the path He leads me on can be painful at times I will choose to remember how He never lost sight of me and brought me through all those years way before He became my Papa God. “the sweet name my children refer to Him as”
What season are you currently in? A season of joy, maybe healing, learning, learning to let go, forgiveness,maybe a season of stillness? Whatever season you are in, know that He walked it before you and has already laid a path.
