Good morning prayer warriors! There is a young man named Aaron. He is 16 years old and needs a touch from God’s healing hand. Aaron has bone cancer, his immune system is struggling. Please take a few moments to pray for him today. Put him on your prayer list if you have one. Thank you!
20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,
21 unto him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus unto all generations for ever and ever. Amen.
Graduation is upon me. This coming Saturday in fact. If you have read my testimony you know this is a HUGE accomplishment. I think it’s just starting to set in and part of the reason is because I just had a job interview at a women’s shelter here in town as a Program Counselor. The Lord has brought me a great distance in the last 6 years.
In fact, six years ago right at this moment I was addicted to Meth, I was an I.V. drug user. I actually used meth, cocaine, heroine, anything that got me high and would allow me to escape the homeless lifestyle I was living. I sold my body, stole from department stores, hustled like crazy to make money for dope. My husband and I lived on the creek. We had a pretty cool camp, not like most of the homeless that lived around us who had been out there and never really expected to get off the streets. We knew there was a call on our lives and living on the street wouldn’t last forever but sometimes it felt like forever.
Fast forward, here it is April 29, 2013 and Saturday May 4th I will graduate with a Bachelors in Psychology and Counseling, just had my first job interview and I am no longer dependent on my State for any kind of assistance (not that that is bad, because we needed the assistance for a while).
WOW is how I feel. God is so AWESOME and this is where I have wanted to be my entire life but never thought it would happen and certainly not this fast. I am grateful beyond words. This has been a divine journey and I’m excited beyond words at what is to come. I will be returning to school in the fall to get my Masters Degree in Counseling.
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.
Good people pass away; the godly often die before their time. But no one seems to care or wonder why. No one seems to understand that God is protecting them from the evil to come. For those who follow godly paths will rest in peace when they die.
I don’t even know where to start. Some real life stuff is happening and I am fighting such deep anger. We (my husband and I) are being attacked in every direction. My step-daughter, whom I love dearly, is battling with her mother right now to regain custody of her 10 year old daughter. Our granddaughter was going to live with us for the school year to help out her mom and fiancé until they were able to get into a bigger house. They have 5 kids all together. Our daughter’s mother decided to keep our granddaughter after a visit. Now we are in a huge custody battle. She is saying all kinds of evil things against us. Please play for my family during this time. Our plates are full and Im still in school trying to finish my bachelors degree,while being a wife, mom, grandma and student, and this is very painful for my husband as this is his daughter and granddaughter we are fighting for and his ex we are dealing with. My family appreciates it very much.
We then, as workers together with Him also plead with you not to receive the grace of God in vain. For He says: “In an acceptable time I have heard you, And in the day of salvation I have helped you.” Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.
