I’m learning day by day that there is absolutely nothing I can or can’t do without the Lord. At times I find myself thinking over my life and all I can do is thank God for the things and situations he has allowed me to go through and conquer. God has blessed me with two beautiful children and two months ago he blessed me with a wonderful husband. In this short period of time of being married I’ve learned that there is no one or anything that can take the place of God in my life. Sometimes we place our trust in people or stuff, but we must put our full trust in the Lord. This has been proven in my past as well as my present. Throughout my life I longed and searched for love in all the wrong places. I didn’t know that ultimately I was looking for God and his unconditional love, a love that wouldn’t use and abuse me, a love that didn’t violate me, and a love that was kind and merciful. This was the ultimate love that I searched for in men, work, school, clothes, shoes and even in my children.
As women we tend to think that if I could just go back to school and get our degrees, we would be fulfilled. If we can just find the perfect man, we’ll be fulfilled, if we can find the perfect pair of shoes to go with that perfect dress, we’ll be fulfilled. True happiness, joy and fulfillment are in the Lord. He loves us when no one else does; he directs and guides us when we include him in our matters. And most of all he loves us unconditionally. I’m desperate for him because I know what I’m capable of when he’s not in my life. When I haven’t prayed or read my word (my strength) as I should, I’ve gotten off track and can literally feel the shift in my life. I not only want God to be the head of my life, my goal is that he is my life. That may sound fanatical; however, I’ve realized that I need him every hour of my life.
I’m married with two children, decent job, in school, but I need the Lord. I crave for him to be a part of my life. There is absolutely none like him in the whole world. There was a song we sang years ago “Can’t nobody do me like Jesus.” I’ve learned that and am still learning it. With God I am a wonderful mother, wife, employee, student, family member, and friend. I am more than a conqueror and victorious. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13
Be blessed; realize whose you are and who you are….
