…a year and two days exactly since my last post. A lot has happened and is happening, and God has sent me on a journey that s stretching me in ways that I’ve never been stretched before. Right now, I cannot go into details for a multitude of reasons. Hopefully, one day, I’ll be able to blog about what the last year has been like. All I can say right now is that God is showing me things beyond my imagination. He’s also giving me strength to live in circumstances I never thought I could. While my faith has been tested (and is being tested daily) I can honestly say I’m closer to God than I’ve ever been. Do I have bad days? Yes, very bad days; however, on those bad days God gives me the encouragement I need to keep going EVERY TIME. When all you have left is God you realize that all you really need is Him. I’m stronger in my faith than I’ve ever been even the midst of the greatest pain in my life.
I re-read my last post from May 10, 2012 and realized that it is more relevant to me today than it was a year and two days ago. It’s not hard to find since it was last post before this, but for your convenience here’s a link:
Looking back at it I realize God was preparing me for the journey I’m on now and why I had to put my childlessness behind me in order to cope with what I was getting ready to experience. While my comprehension of my future is fraught with uncertainly I stand on this scripture:
” For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
