All glory to our God and King

I love my life. God is really shaking it up in the very best of ways. I could not be happier if I tried. Well, maybe I just have not known greater happiness yet. I remember a year ago, I had a veteran in sobriety in my life. He kept speaking into my life and telling me life was worth living. It was worth having dreams. I kept saying and/or thinking I had lost all my dreams for Jesus. There was nothing left to live for except Him. But at the time my recovery felt so painful and I was so stuck in looking at my pain, that I could not see the hope in Jesus to bring me joy. The growing pains in my life were just too strong.

I can now say with confidence and joy that life is good. It is worth living, and I love it. I have dreams. I am not very attached to them. Well, I am quite attached to them. My dream is to disciple people to Jesus the rest of my life in what ever context God currently has me. My life is incredible. If I ever complain about it again, I give you permission to slap me. Twice.

Sometimes the oddest events in my life show me how much I have changed. I went to the dentist last week. Five years ago, I loved going to the dentist. It was one hour where I could relax and do absolutely nothing and feel really good about it. I never had any guilt for that hour either. Actually, it was the same case two and a half years ago. This time I did not like it at all. I could not believe at some point in my life I thought it was relaxing! Well, I did fully believe it. I just could not understand it. But though I could not understand it, I sure could remember it. I am so thankful God has changed me!

I had the step study tonight where we are in step 6. It is amazing how God has entirely transformed me in the last six months. I keep telling these ladies my answers from six months ago. I am using the same workbooks for this study as that one. God has entirely brought me through what I was struggling with then. I keep saying everything is different now. And everything is. I finally became willing to give my character defects over to God and my life has been transformed. I have joy. Unspeakable joy. I look forward to tomorrow. I cannot wait for Sunday, and I have already been disappointed a few times this week because it is not close enough to the weekend. I am greatly looking forward to it!

My God will supply all my needs, and He will do it through people! And do you know what? He has given me the most amazing source of income right now. I think I may even be able to retire this dinosaur of a computer! Or just keep it as a backup and extra storage space. I love my God so much!

Okay, I will shush now. He is good to me! He is worth it all. I am going to be quiet now. I promise. He is my reward.

Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written. – John 21:25
