Galatians: for in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith.

This is a nice reminder that we are all children of God. There is nothing to fear, worry about, or despair. God offers us guidance along our path if we but ask. Sometimes we don't even have to ask and the guidance comes, but I've found when I offer a word of thanks and ask for guidance, it is given. The more I offer up, the less I have to worry. God has the plan and I am the follower.

There have been times when I have gone rogue and shied away from the Divine thinking that I could do it on my own, "I've got it from here, God."

Can I tell you that God is so good that he lets me, knowing perfectly well that I don't "have it" at all, and that it's only a matter of time before I come crawling back, asking for forgiveness and beginning again?

It wasn't really until the separation, that I gave it all to him. Shortly after I asked my husband to move out, I went to church. Lent was about to begin and I prayed that during Lent my husband would have his heart of stone turn to flesh. I offered it all to God, my marriage, my husband, my children, my life. It was to be my most profound Lenten journey.

That Lent, I began the journey of self-rediscovery. I gave everything to God daily.

After Easter that year, nothing had changed but me. I realized that God had a different plan for my life. If I stayed in that marriage, I would be showing my children that it was okay to be treated cruelly; that it was okay to be disrespected; okay to have an affair; to have your soul be sucked away.

After Easter, I filed for divorce and began the journey of taking my life back, of living with God in my life because I couldn't do it alone.

Footprints in the Sand

Footprints in the Sand, a beautiful poem!

One night I dreamed a dream. As I was walking along the beach with my Lord. Across the dark sky flashed scenes from my life. For each scene, I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand, One belonging to me and one to my Lord.

After the last scene of my life flashed before me, I looked back at the footprints in the sand. I noticed that at many times along the path of my life, especially at the very lowest and saddest times, there was only one set of footprints.

This really troubled me, so I asked the Lord about it. "Lord, you said once I decided to follow you, You'd walk with me all the way. But I noticed that during the saddest and most troublesome times of my life, there was only one set of footprints. I don't understand why, when I needed You the most, You would leave me."

He whispered, "My precious child, I love you and will never leave you Never, ever, during your trials and testings. When you saw only one set of footprints, It was then that I carried you."
