Where I am Today.
For I am not ashamed to admit that I am a believer in Christ Jesus. Without my faith, I am sure that I would not be where I am today. Having had a number of struggles and tragic losses, I could very well have ended up being dependent on other things to cover my pain. Or I could possibly even made an attempt to end my life. It has not always been easy. There have been times when I was persecuted for what I believe. Yet, God has been ever faithful and His word has been a comfort and my mainstay. Sharing is what I am called to do.
I have not always gotten it right and there were times when my life did not reflect Christ. Yet, I returned to my first love that of Christ. Now, I delight myself in the Lord and his word as often as I can.
But I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed, and I am convinced that he is able to guard until that Day what has been entrusted to me. 2 Timothy 1:12b
Furthermore, I rejoice in the fact that my husband cherishes me. Our children that are strong independent individuals. God has blessed me with a number of wonderful fellow Christian friends. I attend church regularly as well as Bible study. I am active with Williamson County Christian Women’s Connection.
Moreover, God has helped me to reconcile with my mother and we have a beautiful new relationship. I attend Celebrate Recovery to continue to work on my hurts, hang-ups, and habits. God is still at work in my life. He is faithful to complete the good work He began in me and will complete at the day of Christ Jesus (Philippians 1:6).
My Purpose in Sharing with You
After all, I share my story with you so that you may know where I am coming from and trust what I say to be true to the best of my ability. God has called me to testify to His goodness. (Acts 20:24, However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.)
Grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus.
My prayer: Dear Father in heaven, thank you for this venue to testify to You and the good news of Jesus Christ. Continue to work in me and through me so that I may a blessing to those around me. The glory and honor be Yours now and forevermore. Amen.
