As I write this today, I’m in awe of how amazing God is!!!!
When I started writing this blog, it was meant to be a testimony of what God’s done for me and for anyone else that might be where I was. I’m not trained in any way, I just have life experience and a good, good God that’s carried me through every step of the way!!!
I’ve spent a lot of years digging out from the negativity and the damage done from an unhealthy relationship. It’s such a process, that’s been one day at a time and one thing at a time. Now, there are no words to describe the joy and the peace from having dug out from underneath all of it. Most of all, it’s given me such love, adoration and thankfulness towards God for a complete transformation!
This summer I was walking through a park in Vevay IN at a festival with different booths selling different things and came across these plaques that spoke right to me! I posted these pictures on facebook in August.
The week before I had just heard a message about the transformation into a butterfly. It resonated with me because I feel like that’s the season I’m living in. Going from a ugly caterpillar to a butterfly. I was stressed, depressed and a mess for a long time! But, God changed all that and has given me a message to share. My prayer had been that I could soar and fly in my spiritual walk and life!
Another prayer is that I could be a light to the world! To add a little sparkle was very fitting😊
The very next day, Jesus Calling devotional said to spend time with Him and He can add sparkle to your day!
Such a confirmation of when we walk closely with the Lord, He will lead us!!!
I went back to find the message I’d heard on this from the week before. It’s not until the last 10 min of it that Pastor Paul talks about metamorphosis and the butterfly. But, what a powerful message and just what I needed to hear for what I’m facing right now. So powerful that I’m including the whole message. I know so many of you walk through the same things I do. It’s titled “You’ll make it”.
It’s amazing how God knows exactly what we need to hear, right when we need to hear it! I heard this in August, but when I stopped and really listened today, I heard it in a completely different way!
There are some things that I continue to face that I could question why?? Instead, I’ve been praying Proverbs 3:5-6~Trust in The Lord with all my heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He’ll direct your path.
I know that I’ll look back on these things and see the reason why later, what I’ve learned from it and the faith that it’s given me.
Having spent so many years fighting for my marriage and then fixing the broken from it, I’m in a season that is completely brand new. I have no idea what God has in store for me. But, I know that He is in control and that His ways are greater than my ways. I know that He is exceedingly abundantly above all able to do more than I could ever ask or imagine. Ephesians 3:20. My prayer~”Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and all these things shall be added unto you.” Matthew 6:33
We’ll all make it through what we face if we meet daily with Him and trust Him to lead us. God’s Word truly is the Living Word and can be a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path.
Thanks for letting me share!
