My online friend, Lynette, had wonderful words to say & shared a piece of scripture with me.
Genesis 50:20 "You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good..."
The bad things that have happened in my life, God has used them for good. Yes, I could wallow in self-pity and allow myself to remain a victim - but that's what Satan had planned all along. However God has shown me (through His word) that He can use those things to further His Kingdom.
I'm a work in progress... you've followed my journey this long. I hope you continue to come along for the ride. I have a feeling 2010 is going to be an interesting one.
