Firstly I’d like to apologise for my sporadic posts lately. There is so much going on in my life at the moment, I’m finding it hard to sit and take stock of all that the good Lord is doing.
There is much work to be done in order to get to the final destination of this particular chapter of my life, so I’m quietly beavering away, juggling many balls and leaning on The King for reassurance and guidance.
It is mind blowing to think how far God has brought me. He has helped me to navigate the rocky terrains I thought would kill me. That may seem dramatic, but in my darkest moments death seemed to chase me down and snap viciously at my heels. Thank God for His spirit that strengthens and encourages. The same spirit that draws the saints together and brings the body of Christ into alignment to be the hands and feet that uplift and comfort and intercede.
I thank God for my family and friends who have cried with me, prayed for me and journeyed with me as I have embraced and grown in this season of single motherhood. The Lord has truly shown me that He can and will do exceedingly abundantly above all we can ask or think when we have a heart that longs to walk in His will and His ways.
The Lord has shown me that NOTHING is impossible with Him, and although I am not where I would choose to be, I am where He wants me to be and His grace allows me to be joyful within these circumstances because they bring Him glory. I am doing things I would never have been able to, had I chosen to stick with man and not God. The road has not been easy, but it has strengthened me and equipped me to do the work God wants me to do. His way is perfect, and seeing the manifestation of His promises over my life….WOW…….
….all I can say is that for so long I wondered if I’d heard Him right, if His promises only came to pass for others, but now I know His word is truth. Although there were times disappointment threatened to overwhelm me I continued to have faith although I couldn’t see; it got very hard at times, but God is man who can not lie, He does not withhold any good thing from those who love Him. He has no favourites, He is no respector of persons. If He did it for me, He can and He will do it for you.
Keep trusting, keep believing, keep praying, never give up. There is purpose in your process. It doesn’t matter how bad things may look, our God operates in the spirit and He is always, always, ALWAYS working things out behind the scenes. In fact the worse things look, the better it is for God as He and He alone will receive all the GLORY when His help is made fully manifest. Keep praising, keep speaking life. Keep following Jesus. Hallelujah!
“Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is. For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.”
Jeremiah 17:7-8 KJV
“I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.”
