"I will praise thee for I am fearfully and wonderfully made." Psalm 139:14
I just wanted to take a few minutes to thank all of you who have prayed for me and supported my blog thus far. God is doing some amazing things in my life and I know that He is not through with me yet. I have been chronicling my journey to walking again and I have to tell you that not only are others being blessed by my candid sharing but God is speaking to me even more clearly since I have started sharing via video. If you haven't seen the videos, take a minute to send me a friend request on fb by clicking the icon on the subscribe link. Everyday things are getting better and better and today I was able to take quite a few steps!! I am so grateful to God that He is allowing me to see His glory manifesting right before my very eyes. Prayer definitely works and I know that glory is coming after this!!
God reminded me of the story of Hannah and how she was ridiculed and ostracized by Pinninah because she was able to have children and Hannah was not. God had not forgotten about Hannah because He was using her barrenness to bring about great promise. Hannah poured our her heart to God and after time passed, despite the continual ridicule and cruelty of Pinninah, Hannah gave birth to a son. She in turn dedicated her gift back to God.
I want to encourage you today to hold on to the promise that God gave you. Your circumstances right now may not line up with the vision but keep pushing forward because the glory of God will be revealed in your life. Despite the opposition. Despite the setbacks. Despite ridicule and mistreatment from others, your prayers will be answered. Your barrenness is just a stepping stone into your destiny.
I look forward to hearing all of your testimonies of how God has answered your prayers. Don't worry about how long its taking. Don't get distracted by what others might say. Stay focused on the greatness inside of you and know that after you have gone through the fire, you shall come forth as pure gold!!
Until Next Time,
Be Real. Be Authentic. Be YOU!!
