Easter 2011

When I was younger I made a lot of poor decisions.

I was selfish, ignorant, never thought about consequences and was acting out…

I hurt a lot of people, I got hurt a lot, I was a mess.

 

I used to talk to God about getting things I deserved… a good man, blessings and gifts.

I knew my heart had good intentions, so apparently I believed I deserved all of this ‘stuff.’

Looking back, I realize that I didn’t deserve anything good, I mean none of us ‘deserve’ gifts from God.

However, I will say that once I got on a righteous path, quit doing stupid things and started really focusing on my good heart…

I started noticing all of the blessings I was receiving and was so grateful.

 

When I had my son I began going to church for the FIRST TIME ever.

I was 22 and single.

It was scary, but I knew a couple of people at this church.

I felt uncomfortable, I had NO IDEA how to worship… nor did I have a connection with it.

I was diving in head first, pulled there for reasons I later figured out.

One day at this church I remember worshiping and finally ‘getting it.’

Tears entered my eyes and I felt the love I had for God and He of me.

Since then, my relationship has blossomed and my gifts have multiplied.

I firmly believe that this growth with God has provided me with a more beautiful life.

I am so thankful for the sacrifice our God gave, so that we can live… sinful at times, but still happy and in love with Him.

I don’t think I would be with my husband, had I not stepped on this path.

 

Happy Easter, may you be as blessed and as content as I am.
