If I wrote a Memoir I’d call it ~ Out Of Order
My life’s a testimony to the truth that you don’t have to do everything perfect to have a beautiful life.
Pregnant at 15 and newly married I became a mom just weeks before my 16th birthday. Not the order you’re suppose to follow on the path to happy ever after. I started college at 30 as a recently single parent with 3 kids to raise. And at almost 66 I’m learning how to create online courses in a fledgling new career venture. WHAT??? Crazy, right? Definitely out of order. But I feel more alive and passionate each day about my life and walk with Jesus.
Not only have I done things out of the recommended order, but I’ve been out of order personally, as in broken. I remember even as a young girl actively searching for the something else that would make my life make sense. That thing that answered the big questions philosophers grapple with. Why am I here? Is there a larger meaning and scope for my life? And the biggest one of all ~ is there really a God Who cares about me?
At 17 God answered my questions and began mending my brokenness. He’s been my Rock, my strength, and my LORD for almost 50 years. The beauty, joy and blessings in my life are all results of His promises, grace and transforming power at work in me. My story is mine, it’s unique to me and your story, though probably wildly different, is also uniquely yours.
None of us walk the same path with God.
You’re one of a kind and the script God’s written for your story, the plan He envisions for your life is unfolding day by day. Each new sunrise gives you a fresh chance to discover and live out that brilliant divinely conceived plan.
But have you ever found yourself wondering how to do your part in fleshing out God’s design? His plan for your life?
