My life has changed a lot in the past few years, especially within the past year and a half. As I’ve grown closer to God, I am in awe at His grace and mercy over my life. i praise Him for always taking care of me, providing for me and leading me along the path that He knows is best for me. I’m grateful for unanswered prayers, and I’m grateful to be in a season of life where He is my focus — where I am grateful for the opportunity to spend so much time with Him and in His word. It’s taken me a long time to recognize this season of life as a blessing, but that’s exactly what it is. God doesn’t give to us as the world gives, but He gives peace and always has our best interests at heart.
Being a Christian doesn’t make me perfect. I am still a sinner, but I am saved by His grace and redeemed through His blood. I’m not perfect, but I am forgiven. Today, I thank Him for the blessings in my life — especially those that I didn’t realize were blessings until years later. He truly does know best, and His timing is perfect.
I heard this song while driving down the road this week, and it brought tears to my eyes. It summed up my thoughts perfectly and shared what my heart was feeling. When I think about the past and the type of person I was, I’m humbled that I’m not who I used to be. Only God can change a person’s heart like that. I pray I can offer the same mercy and grace to others around me.
