Happy Sunday everyone!! I apologize for this post going out so late, I was up pretty late last night and “life” happened this morning. I am having such a hard time sleeping here lately and I have no clue why! I suppose it is menopause, boy I do not like menopause one bit! WHY did Eve have to pick that doggone apple???!!!!
We had a great time yesterday at the University seeing all the Pre Med students coming in. How proud those parents must be of their children! I think I have told this before, but my dream was to be an Orthopedic Surgeon since I was in 9th grade. I was just about to start out on that dream when my Father suddenly passed away and I ended up staying with my Mom. I opted to work and go to school while I stayed with her and well, the rest is history. I was never able to fulfill my dream to be in medicine.
God had a different plan for me and I could not see it at such a young age. He knew I would make mistakes and my journey would ultimately bring me to my knees to ask for his forgiveness and his help. The path I was taking in the Fashion Industry was NOT what I wanted for my life – I wanted MD at the end of my name and I was willing to work for it. God knew my Mom would need me and I would take the road that kept me close to her. That one little decision changed my life forever.
I learned so much in a few short years from why mom about spiritual things. I learned how to pray, I learned what fasting really meant, I learned what being persistence and perseverance meant and how those few things would mold my spiritual person into what God wanted for me. I took a lot of hard bumps through life and learned how to call on God, not only for the big things but the small things. I learned that through my darkest hours that he was there holding my hand. Even though I thought he wasn’t, I later could see where he was not only there – he was carrying me through those trials and tribulations.
Do not ever doubt God, know that he sees all things and knows your future. He can take a mistake and turn it into a reward for you. Do not question things, have trust in God knowing that he is there to carry you through the small storms and the storms that are a Cat 5 Hurricane! My dream of being a surgeon was not what I needed and it was not God’s intent for me. He knew I would need the guidance of my mother to teach me and train me in the Bible more than she ever did while I was a child. He had a plan for me and he knew certain things would have to happen in my life that would break me and bring me to my knees and become a willing servant.
I don’t look back and think about what could have been. I look back and thank God he loved me enough to steer me where he wanted me. No matter if the road to him was going to be heartbreaking and devastation to me emotionally (and it was folks! It was!!), it was worth every tear because I’m rich in HIM! And one day he is going to call me home, where he has prepared a place for me. I tell Barry all the time, I don’t care what kind of a house I live in – God knows me better than I know myself and I’m going to have a home in Glory that is hooked up!!!!!! These worldly things I do not care about, I care about where my soul rests after I take that last breath here on earth. And I cannot wait to get to heaven one day and see all of you (my sisters in Christ) oh what a time it will be!!!! Love to you all!!! My heart is overflowing and gushy today LOL!!
