Don’t Give Up!
How time flies! I am ten days shy of my 54th birthday and it seems like it was only yesterday that I was shedding tears because I was turning 30. I have no little ones at home anymore, or adults for that matter, praise God! My time is mostly dedicated to my husband and myself and I thought this would be the time when I could focus solely on me, however, it was/is not to be. It took me some time but I have finally come to the realization that I was not given life here on this earth solely for marrying, reproducing, raising children into productive adults and exhaling for the remainder of my life. God has designed me to be a light in a dark world and to share His love with those who are feeling unloved or non-deserving of His love. I myself could have fallen into that state of being when I was diagnosed ten years ago with Multiple Sclerosis. Oh, I had the pity party and fell into deep, dark depression…but God! I picked myself up by my boot straps, began to read in God’s Word all the promises He made to me and decided I am not dead yet and my purpose has yet to be fulfilled! I reminded myself that God cannot lie and in order to fulfill my purpose for which I was created, He had to let me live and to live more abundantly according to His promise in His Word. I decided that I may have MS, but MS does not and will not have me unless God allows! He has been faithful! I enrolled in college, and will be graduating next semester! There is so much more I need to say but such a short limit in which to say it! Bottom line…if He did it for me, He will do it for you. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me, and so can you!
