...Plans to Give You Hope and a Future

I never thought I would enjoy blogging, but this has been one of the most rewarding things I have done. Sharing my life with so many people has taught me how to express myself.

Through our ministry I share the most personal part of my life. I have been asked, “How are you able to share such interment things about yourself?” I think the answer to that question is easy for me to answer. People learn from others’ mistakes. By sharing my story my prayer is that others see how sin can grab you so quickly without you really realizing, and before you know it, not only have you hurt yourself, but you have hurt others. You react to what you’ve done and you don’t take the time to think it through carefully. And the one person you need to go to for clarity, you avoid. I don’t think you do the avoiding on purpose. I think you feel you have messed up so badly, you can’t go to Him, and so you do things that you later regret, such as in my case.

I don’t want to give my story away so if you want to hear our testimonies you have to invite us to your Church! I am so glad we serve a loving God, full of love, and grace, and forgiveness. There are no words to express what He has done in my life, but the one word that stands strong for me is GRATEFUL!!!

When I look out into the audience when I am speaking and I look into the eyes of individuals, I can see brokenness, and I can sometimes see the cries for help. And when I finish sharing my story I see the look of peace, because now they know there is nothing that God won’t forgive if we ask Him too.

I feel so honored and humbled at the same time, that God selected my family to share our testimonies to be the bridge for others to find Him. Know The Savior Ministries has been the healing grace in my life. The lessons that I have learned and the people God has placed in my path through this journey He has me on has been amazing. Living on this farm that He gave us, has taught me patience and a work ethic I thought I had but clearly I didn’t.

I do sometimes have moments of sadness because; when I look over my life, I so wish I had done things differently. When you are leading your own life and not allowing God to guide you, chaos is what your life becomes. It is only when you surrender yourself over to the Lord that you see the true light at the end of the tunnel. Am I saying that my life now is a bowl of cherries, no, not at all! But what I am saying is now when the valleys come I know where to turn.

God also places people in your life to share your ups and downs with. He has placed such a person in my life. I have been blessed to have her on my journey of Knowing the Savior. She has been my sounding board, my prayer partner, and my Bible study companion. She thinks I have been her piece of the rock, but in truth she has been mine.

As I have decided to let God be my guide, I realize that my journey is just beginning, and there is so much to learn because of the time I wasted doing my own thing. I am on an adventure with my Lord and I like the path we are on together. And this time I plan to stay on His path. In Jeremiah 29:11 it says “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” This has become one of my favorite verses in the Bible. It has been true in my life. He has given me much hope. Now when I look at my future I see the face of Jesus. His path has not hurt me and I am wealthy in His love and forgiveness.

Come and take this journey with me, “O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.” Psalm 34:8
