This year 2011 was hard for some . I thought so. It wasn't until I asked God to show me what I was supposed to get out of this difficult place that I could see more clearly. Finances, health, emotions, missed opportunites, desired opportunites not granted etc., etc., etc. What I know now is that this year was necessary for the people I will meet and share with later. When you talk to people and they tell you what is happening in their lives you think truth is your answer to their issue, and it should be - without offending. We should always be prepared to give answer for the hope that is within us and that include some details of some rough places we have been so others may know that we have been there too. We don't all experience the same thing but, we all hurt sometimes and miss the mark.
It's nice to know the seasoned women I have been privileged know have been in some tough places and through tough times. What makes the difference is that I know if God saw them to the other side of the road, he will do the same for me. I am his child too and he loves me no less than them. I wanted the easy way out. Easy is not the norm in God's economy whether it is money, knowledge, wisdom or experience
it all costs something. I give honor to God for the year 2011 and desire with all my heart to do a better job of living in 2012. I look forward to a closer more intimate walk with the Lord. I will still experience things that will not be as I wish, but to walk with the Lord through it all is what I choose to do. Thank you Lord for all you've done for me. 2012 is looking good already.
