The Lord your God is with you,
the Mighty Warrior who saves.
He will take great delight in you;
in his love he will no longer rebuke you,
but will rejoice over you with singing.”
– Zephaniah 3:17
It is a strange thing when you take a break from blogging, come back to your blog months later and realize just how much your life has changed in such a short amount of time.
Last summer, I was a single mom. I was struggling with anxiety attacks. I was struggling with depression. I was trying so hard to be the best mom I could be to my 3 little ones, but knew that I could not do it anymore on my own strength.
I ran to God. I spent hours each day in the Word. I prayed continuously. I cried, I yelled, I stomped my feet at the situation….and then one day I fully surrendered.
And do you know what happened?
He did a new thing. He made a way in the wilderness. (Isaiah 43:19)
He led me to the man He had for me – in His divine way. It is a story that I may share here with you someday…it is an awesome, incredible story – the kind that gives you goosebumps. The kind that makes you shout for joy in awe of how He works in us through the Holy Spirit.
And now, here I am…blessed beyond measure. I am married to such an amazing man of God. He has two kids of his own…making us a family of 7.
Our days are filled with such peace and joy….with laughter….with reverence….with blessings.
God is so incredible.
Joy does come with the morning. (Psalm 30:5)
