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
I love to talk, talk , and talk some more. So, I figured maybe I could write, write, write and write some more. Just my thoughts and input on how I am living this life that God has given me and maybe it will help someone along the way. I want to encourage others as I gain courage myself.
Growing up I really believed that my life would be perfect in every way, that I personally would be perfect. I was wrong, my life is far from perfect and so am I. I make about a thousand mistakes everyday, that is an exaggeration, but you get the point. My life may not be perfect but it is full of hope because of Jesus and that is a great start.
I did not always know Him and He was not always in my life. I thought he was distant and a mean God who just sat up there on His throne made of clouds looking down at His creation, just sitting up there with his hands folded. I thought He was just waiting for me to mess up so He can punish me. Once again, I was wrong so very wrong, I did not know Him at all.
Part of my life I lived for myself, thinking I was on my own making decision for the things of this world, but not fully satisfied. I know that might sound cliche but I can honestly say it is the truth. It was until later that I met Him and began to truly know Him for who He is that I learned that this life is so much more than possessions.So much more than looking for someone to complete you, so much more than just about myself . I have a higher calling and I am called to stop believing the lies that this world has fed me for so long. I stumble and I may not show my love for Jesus at times because of my actions, but nevertheless I am trying. I am a work in progress, we all are.
For a while I wanted to start this blog and I wanted to share with others what HE has been teaching me and the real struggles that we are all going through. The only problem is that I was always waiting for the perfect time. Or better said ,until my walk seemed perfect. But I have found out that it is not about perfect timing but His timing. So, I invite you to take a look into my work in progress, the life the Lord has given me. To accept the beautiful truth that the Lord is into building beautiful things out of the ashes, out of broken pieces, and calling worthy what others have called unworthy.
