What pits rule your life? Part 3

Pits come in all shapes and sizes.  I don’t mean literal shapes and sizes of course, but I mean that everyone goes through their own struggles and short comings in life.  Everyone has moments of doubt and fear.  Everyone at some point or another will succumb to the lies that the enemy throws at us because we only know as much as our present human mind can understand.  We are not all knowing like our Father is who know what is to come, not just what already has happened.

God is on the Move!

I have been given permission to share the story of this amazing daughter of God.  She is just one example of how God pulls us up and sets our feet firm upon the rock.  How He chooses to use all situations for our good that the enemy intended for our harm.

This is a very rare, raw view into my life and my story. Trying to find an old message in my phone, I came across two very old conversations. As I read them, it brought me back to those moments.

These moments in my life were moments of doubt, pain, helplessness, and fear. As I recalled these very moments, I was reminded: at the time, I had no idea what I was doing or where I was going. My life was empty. Reaching a dead end. When I found out I was pregnant, I was in a very dark, isolated place. In these moments, though, I felt something inside of me telling me to push on when I wanted to give up the most. So much turmoil, yet I somehow felt at peace.

Somewhere among these moments, I decided to hand my life and my situation to God. He supposedly has a grand plan, right? Looking back on this time, it could not be more evident. From that time on, I immersed myself, my soul, in Him and the plan that he had so carefully crafted. When I “let go and let God,” I now realize, my life came together.

Where I’m at now…I am so blessed. Considering every obstacle that I was presented with, I pulled through. Because I chose to follow my heart and ignore any peer pressure or doubts that were cast upon me, I have come out on top.

Let me tell you…this baby that would have supposedly ruined my life…he is my world. He is smart, he is filled with personality, he is full of wonder and full of love. Every day, I wake up and look over at him, and I feel complete. Any piece of me that was missing, any scar, any void that I had…he fills it. He overflows it. My heart, my soul, and my mind are at peace. I can not possibly imagine a life without him, but had I chose to ignore what I felt and chose to take the “easy way out,” I would have nothing. Emptiness.

This is John. John didn’t ruin my life. John is not a mistake, John is not a burden. John is not keeping me from fulfilling my dreams, or holding me back from succeeding in life. John is the reason that I wake up in the morning. John is the reason that I strive to be a better woman. This boy is my world.

I owe my life to him. I owe my life to Him.

Guys, God has a plan. Trust in it. You would be amazed at what’s in store for you.

What pits rule your life? Part 2

I have a question for you, and I want you to be honest.  Have you ever heard a voice inside your head that told you one thing?  You thought that it was probably not true, but you couldn’t be completely sure.  Because of that little bit of doubt seeping into your mind, you allowed that voice to change the way you felt about yourself, someone else, a situation, etcetera?  Honesty hour, I have definitely been there, done that.

He chooses who He chooses

“I, the Lord, the first and with the last, I am He.”  Isaiah 41:4

 

Have you ever wondered who you are?  Have you asked yourself, “How did I get here?  What makes me so special among all the rest?  Does God have plans for me too?  Has He chosen me?”  All of these questions are viable and I see one main commonality between them.  They all correlate to the same one question, “Is God for me?”

The heart of a wife after God’s heart (or future wife)

 

“An excellent wife, who can find, she is far more precious that jewels.”  Proverbs 31:10

Have you ever felt like you were less than perfect as a wife?  One thing that I have learned over these short 4 years of marriage is that every marriage goes through struggles at one point or another.  I am learning that the first years are also one of the hardest and most trying periods.  There are so many new things that you have to learn about your spouse.  Lots of things change after you enter into this new season.  You find that it seemed like you went on so many dates when you were not married, and now you would be lucky if you got one in a month, especially after children come into the picture.  Before marriage you saw each other as perfection, and now you see quite a lot of flaws.
