Thankful that today, is my 32nd birthday.
As I was walking to the supermarket with my 13yr. old, I was mentioning to her how I had such a lovely day with my girls. I went on to tell her that while I was in the world, I would have spent this day rather differently. How grateful am I that in Jesus all things are made new.
In that moment I recalled the countless times that I knew it was just the Lord's mercy and love for me that kept the devil's hand from taking my life.
I am grateful...
I had two different SIC declare this verse today which I'd like to share (they didn't know that the other had this verse for me):
For the Lord your God is living among you.
He is a mighty savior.
He will take delight in you with gladness.
With his love, He will calm all your fears.
He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.
Zephaniah 3:17 NLT
Thank you Lord,
Thank you because although you were not in my plans I was in yours,
Thank you because you loved me first,
Thank you because you kept me from harm,
Thank you because you have called me to be Yours,
Thank you for your precious son Jesus and Holy Spirit that lives in me,
