Thank you for reading my very first blog on this subject.
I hope your read this and get something from it that will bless you. Any good thought in my head is from the Lord. Only he deserves glory. What you will read was hard, very hard for my to divulge. However, if even one person reads below, and that causes them to turn toward the father than I will deal with the embarrassment.
Be still and know that I am God
You will read that verse above all through my post. That simple little verse (there is more to it).
I had read it several times, heard it in church, radio and basically everywhere.
However I never heard it like I did not too long ago. It is a little gem the lord gave me. A turning point if you will. Read on and I will tell you how the Prodigal Daughter came home.
I spent a lot of time in my life searching for love and peace. Little did I realize I had them both most of my life. But you see I didn't recognize that. Well, sometimes I did but not very often.
Life for me started out bad from birth. I was born into a family with parents that had a lot of substance control issues, violence issues and just about every other issue you can think of. The first time I was physically abused I was 3 months old. I was laying on the couch crying and my father didn't want to hear it so he picked me up and threw me against the fire place. My mother and older sisters say that the only thing that saved me was the thick blanket I was wrapped in. However, now I know Jesus put his hand out and caught me, for he had plans for me.
I'm not going to go into every detail of my life it would take far too long and I'm afraid I would lose you to a blog on making pumpkin pie. I admit, that sounds like more fun reading.
I became a Christian as a young child. I took myself to church from the time I was about 6 until my teen years. No one went with me. It was in Florida and the churches or most of them would pick up the kids in poor neighborhoods and bring them to church. I loved it. I felt very much loved and cared for. The best part was the ice cream we would get on the way home.
So sweet people let me ask you. Have you felt a loneliness in your life that was so strong it was like a punch in the stomach? Have you felt that you are less than all other people, that God just doesn't like you. Or have you thought, there is no way God could be real, a real God wouldn't have let me suffer.
Friends I don't know why, if I could answer this I would be famous. But this I do know. Bad things happen and if you don't know the lord and know how to tap into that power well, than I don't know how you or me will get through the tragedies.
Your father loves you so much. Remember, you are fearfully and wonderfully made Ps. 139:14--You are made in the image of God Genesis 2:7____For God knit you in your mothers womb Ps. 139: 14-18
Do you realize how powerful that is? He knit us in the womb. I don't know if you knit but let me tell you that I don't. I tried and it was too dang hard. I quit that stuff. God didn't quit. he patiently made you, unique you no one else is just like you.
He made you in his image. Did you ever notice a new parent, they want that baby to look like them. If the mother in law say's the baby looks like her child you will break out your baby photos and argue that the baby looks like you. I like to think God was so proud he wanted us to be like him
Fearfully and wonderfully made. I don't believe the writer is saying God was fearful or scared when he made us. Rather in awe, Did you ever do something so awesome that you had that giddy, butterfly's in your stomach kind of fear? The nervouse excited fearful you just cant believe your doing it and your almost afraid it's not real or really happening.
I like to think that is what it means by fearfully and wonderfully made.
Just look at these wonderful pictures above and tell me that God doesn't do good work.
Sweet brothers and sisters, I want to thank you for coming to my blog and reading it. I've never done anything like this. I don't usually talk about God to people, especially potentially thousands of people. I really think this is part of the Plan God has for me. If only one person after realizes God does love them or you can go back to God in forgiveness. If someone decides dying isn't the answer than I know God's hand is in this. Maybe I wont know if this does help someone, but God knows and I just want to be obedient.
Lord I ask you tonight to bless every person that reads this. To help them get some little gem from this. I pray that anyone that is lonely and without you will realize they are loved and need to come home to you. Help me to hear you and only write would you can use. I pray this in Jesus name.
Sweet people, thank you from the bottom of my heart for stopping by. Please subscribe by email so you will get new posts. If the comments section is working which it has been having kinks, but you will have to go to the bottom pretty far. Please leave a comment to let me know what you thought.
In the next post I will talk about Drugs/Opioids and how the family is destroyed by this.
