New beginnings

“Every day is day One and new beginnings can happen anywhere down the road.”  ~ One Thousand Gifts

No matter how far I  drifted away from God on my journey, His arms were there welcoming me back.  Growing up (and to this day) I loved to hear the Bible story of the prodigal son (Luke 15:11-32), how he left his life to follow his pleasures and “do his own thing,” all of which eventually led him to ruin before he realized his drifting had separated him from his father.  He returned home, to the welcoming arms of his father finding compassion and redemption. this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.”

I may not have faced the ruin of the prodigal son in my life, but my heart has drifted from the things of God; following my own agenda and doing “my own thing.”   There have been so many times  in my life I’ve not been hot or cold, I’ve been luke-warm to cool.   His Grace welcomes me HOME!

One thing I am learning on this journey, this road God gives me, is I have to choose each day to intentionally pursue Him.   And every day He gives me new beginnings!

I am a follower of Jesus on the journey of discovering His real, lasting joy through God's grace and thanksgiving. Several years ago, I married my best friend, whom I met in kindergarten many years ago. Life choices took each of us on separate paths, but Divine Appointment brought our paths back together. It's exciting to share this journey with my sweet man - a man who loves God more than he loves me! What a gift!! As a young woman I prayed for God to send a godly man like my daddy to pursue me. I just wasn't listening and abiding when I should have been. Good news in HIS time and in HIS grace, HE did! Not only does my sweet man love me, but he loves my three grown kids as if they were his own. He shares their joys and he hurts when they hurt. I love to hear him pray for each of them daily as we begin and end our days. View all posts by beegee10
