I'm not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don't get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I've got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I'm off and running, and I'm not turning back.
I am opening today with this verse. I have used it before, but I wanted to revisit it. I especially wanted to look at the first line: I'm not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. I have said in earlier blogs that I have made mistakes on this journey. I will be the first to admit that. As the above verse says, I am by no means an expert.
This blog is not intended to hurt anyone. It is not about who is right or wrong in my divorce. I just want to share with others how Christ is helping me through this. I want my girls to know that no matter what happens in life, HE has already so wondrously reached out to us, so all we have to do is reach back to Him. We might not always be able to change our circumstances, but He has the supernatural ability to change us so that we can deal with those circumstances. When we head toward the dark place, if we will just stop and reach out to Him, He is able to give us peace.
Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
He gives me that peace every day of my life, and I am so thankful for it. That is why I am writing this blog. I want to share with others what I have found. No matter what your circumstance or situation, God loves you, and He can and will make it better.
