This morning I got out of bed and this was the scene I left behind…(I left my husband out of the picture to give him some semblance of privacy) :)
I’m amazed at how many things I’ve ended up doing that I thought I would never do…
1. I married a white skateboarder turned preacher! 💕
2. I moved back to the U.S. (after a brief stint in high school and college. I’m a Canadian girl at heart) 🇨🇦
3. I’m mothering and raising my children far from my family. (Thank God for social media & Skype) 💻
4. I’m serving and leading women in my church. They didn’t know me, but they trusted me (only by the grace of God). ⛪️
Let me tell you something, if your life is submitted to God, never say never. He has a way of turning your ‘nevers’ into reality. My life has become something I didn’t imagine and something wonderful all at the same time.
There have been a lot of “never thought I would haves” and He keeps showing me that my arrogance is no match for His perfect will and purpose for my life. I’m not saying that I don’t reason, think about and make choices concerning my future, I’m just saying that He has a way of keeping it interesting if I submit my will to His will.
The verse that continually rings true is Isaiah 55:8-9: “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the LORD. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.”
