I can’t believe I got through that! Truth is I’ve said that a lot over the past 7 years. Life happens to all of us, so the challenges I’ve faced are not unique, or shall I say possibly not as tragic to you as they felt to me, but to me my life was just downright hard for an extended period of time. The amazing thing is, I made it through with my head held high and a smile on my face, day by day, piece by piece, by the wonderful grace of God… and the Ladies of Leyton Grove.
Life certainly has its ups and downs. One day you’re on “Cloud 9.” Another day you find you’re in the pit of despair (sometimes for no apparent reason). What God has taught me is that His mercies truly are new every morning. He has plans for us–plans for good and not for evil. And no matter how dismal your circumstances may be at the moment, God is there. He sees you. He cares for you and he has a plan for you (Psalm 139). Reach up and hold on. We don’t know the future but God does and tomorrow just might be the day things all come together. Many time I’ve been encouraged by Galatians 6:9
“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”
