Man oh man, have I missed this conversation! It's so good to be smothered in love here!!!!!
I believe that there are blessings at every point in our lives. I know for me, being the strong, independant, take charge and stay in control kind of girl that I was - when I suffered kidney failure, heart attack and a stroke all within a three month period time.....it knocked me out of my "self-controlled" world. I now understand that it was the only way my Heavenly Father could get me to stop long enough to pay attention to the message He had been trying to send me all along....MY GRACE IS SUFFICIENT FOR THEE!!
I learned that we can never fall further than God's hands can reach to pick us up, and that when we confess our sins to Him - that He throws them into the sea of forgetfulness and never more shall be brought back.
For those of us who have had the honor and priviledge of living through and witnessing how God works in our lives...it also becomes our responsibility to share that promise of hope with those who are hurting and lost. After all, we may be the only hope that some people will ever see and if we extend to them the love and promises that God gave to us...through His son JESUS, then they can receive and pass along their testimony of love to another person in their life.
I need to run for now.
