My daddy & my Lord
My life radically changed when I gave it all to the One who created me, and knew the desires of my heart before I was even born. As a little girl, in a big world, I knew there was something more. The Lord found me as a little girl longing for love, He found me, wrapped me in His arms, and showed me the plans that He had for me. Everyday I wake up and am thankful for all the things He has blessed me with. When people ask "isn't it hard running your own business?", I have to laugh, because really, I'm not alone and never will be...
I love reaching out to people in a way that is only possible with God's love, because that's what brought me to Him. He restored my broken past, in hope for my future. Daily as I give my dreams and desires to Him, He continues to refine me from the inside out. The beautiful thing about our Creator, is that He is no respecter of persons. He created each one of us, and no matter where you come from, how broken you are, or how perfect you think you are, He can put everything back together, and make you in every way whole.
I believe in Jesus. I believe He desires something much deeper than shallow religion; He wants to have the deepest, most intimate relationship with each of us. I believe He loves me more than I can imagine, and despite my imperfections, He calls me His Beloved. Since accepting the Lord into my heart and life, I have spent the past 10 years renewing my mind, and trusting that it's not in my own works that I am saved, but by the work in which was done on the cross over 2,000 years ago. Now, when God sees me, despite my imperfections, all He sees is His Son dying on the cross. Even if it were just for me, that day on Calvary, He still would have stayed on that cross. "It is finished" said our Heavenly Father, as His heart was broken for our generation.
I pray daily that my life is a reflection to many who are lost, searching for hope and for love; that I may be a light in the midst of their brokenness. I pray that when they see me, they see Jesus in me, and that everything I do and say would be glorifying to my Father, and the one who died so I could live a life of abundance.
