Hello everyone...and "Happy Tuesday!" Well...today, I'm now 60 years old...and I'm praising God, with all my heart, for the distance He has brought me in my life!
Last night...before going to bed; I spent some very special moments alone with God...and this is what I wrote to Him...
"Dear Lord...Sixty years ago today...you chose to create me. Even though I didn't know what was ahead of me...You did. In fact...You created a plan for my life; that in the end, would bring much honor and glory to Your name, while allowing others to find hope, in the same way You brought hope into my life.
Your plan never promised an easy path to follow...and You knew in advance; that the opposition (Satan) would always attempt to take me down, along with the plan You had for my life. What makes You God though...is that You knew these things in advance and provided a strength for me; that would equip me and keep me stronger than the weakness.
No matter what tactic Satan attempted to use against me...You, oh Lord, always won out. Now I have overcome much and I continue to keep overcoming other things, with that same strength that has kept me standing for many years...as Your plan for my life is now in action...working to lead others, to that same perfect strength that kept me strong, while defeating the forces of evil that attempted to stop the plan You had for my life.
Thank you Lord, for creating me...and giving me purpose...especially at a time, when everything seemed so hopeless in my life.
Love Your daughter forever...Diane"
No matter what you may be facing today...I can sit here and tell you; that there is a reason and purpose behind everything you are walking through...and when God has walked you out of the wilderness of despair; you will truly come to experience the true purpose, for which He chose to creat you...so hold on and continue to press on and anticipate God's very best for your life!
