and I have time to do some of the things I've dreamed of doing.
Isaiah 64:8 (NIV) says,
"Yet you, Lord, are our Father.
We are all the work of your hand.
We are the clay,
you are the potter;"
"But rebels and sinners shall be broken together,
and those who forsake the Lord shall be consumed."
but also from just not thinking of my consequences.
was eating an orange fruit candy from a bin at the market.
A piece had sugar all over it and it looked like one wedge from an orange?
Yes, I have always loved candy,
and my selfishness ran me as this 6 year old put her hand in the bin,
took it out,
and ate it in front of her little sister.
mostly because she was mad that I got a piece of candy
and she didn't.
my mother walked me up to the store manager where I,
in tears and orange sugar dripping from my mouth,
apologized for "stealing" this candy.
I was a thief.
My father dies and my heart opens up, but I try to fill it with the wrong things.
God is growing me, filling me, yet I still continue to crack!
Jealousy and Hate......Crrrraaaccckkkk......
More growth, and HIS FORGIVENESS,
me, forgiving myself.
He loves me and embraces me with ALL of my cracks....
Our imperfections make us unique,
they give us a story that only we know
we become a work or art!
I thank God for the journey called Life,
where I have made mistakes,
How do you feel about some of your journey?
What have you learned through it?
