Life really is a journey

My life is quite the journey, and I feel like God is taking me on a few journeys right now, I am excited to document them and share them with you my friends and visitors. I am excited to share the excitement, the pain, the joy, the ups and downs. I hope you’ll laugh, cry and pray with me as we share my journey together! So here it goes…

If I have learned anything over the past few months (weeks more specifically) it’s that God never ever lets me down or gives up on me. Over the past month I have been in the middle of one of the biggest storms of my life, and through out the entire storm God has shown up in the most unique places. Whether it’s through a beautiful homeless girl I met, through the people God has strategically placed in my life to encourage me, through the man I met in the airport last night, the friend who’s reading the bible with me, and challenging me to be even more hungry for the Word or the former street girl who texts me several times a week with an encouraging message.

But even more I have learned that God can use me even in my weakest, most down and out moments, I’ve also learned that even when I want to run away God is going to catch me and draw me back closer to Him. A few weeks ago my world was turned upside down, details aren’t important but the first thing I wanted to do was run far away, I wanted to throw in the towel and I felt like I wasn’t worthy of continuing with the plans God had for me…I really allowed Satan to take over my heart and my mind it was filled with anger, frustration, doubt and fear…I allowed my heart to be filled with Sin…I had to get down on my knees in the middle of my darkest moments and beg my Heavenly Daddy to forgive me for the sins I had allowed to overtake my heart, and it was in the moment that I was reminded that God will never leave me or forsake me that even in my darkest, meanest moments, while He doesn’t love them He LOVES me…

There are a few verses that I have been leaning on to get through this season and time of transition God has me in I hope they can help someone just as they’ve helped me…

Isaiah 41:13- For I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, do not fear I will help you.

Deut 31:6- Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified of them for the Lord your God goes with you, He will never leave you or forsake you.

Matthew 11:28- Come to Me all who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest.
