a heart remade
my journey to freedom
life is a journey
Have you ever had one of those moments where you feel like life punches you in the gut? Can you recall the exact moment when everything in your life changed? Life would no longer be what it was before. There was no turning back. No redos.
It is in those unimaginable and terrifying moments we have a choice. The road comes to a Y and there are only two ways to turn..... you can run to God or away from him. For years, I ran away from him because I wanted to show him I could do it on my own. I could be better. I could do better. He could help someone else who needed it more than I did. I would do better next time to avoid the mess I was in.
All the while the Lord was graciously waiting for me to run to him. To allow him to carry me. To carry my burdens. For me, it took facing my biggest fear.... cancer to run to God. I will never again change my path. This is my story of redemption .... the Lord is making all things new. Beauty from ashes. My heart is being remade to look more like him. My prayer is that by hearting more of my journey you will be encouraged and see the goodness of God along every step... the road to suffering is long and inevitable, but the joy that comes is unbeatable. Trust me.
"You intended to harm me, but God intended it all for good. He brought me to this position so I could save the lives of many people." Genesis 50:21
