FB "note" Repost When you are tired and broken. . .

I wanted this on here in my blog for personal reasons more so another place I can be reminded if there is never a mirror around to reflect visually on the Sinner I was and am on a smaller level today - I continue to strive to ask God for forgiveness and shape my heart into a loving, embracing person and ever so much to guard my tongue of judgement and to heal my innermost fears of not ever being enough... God has HEALED several of my flaws - one of the biggest was my language - I seriously am floored at not hearing myself curse anymore ~ even more so ~ I am floored when I hear others do so -- not so much because they do, but as a reflection of what I sounded like and who I may have offended... especially God.

It wasn't long ago that I released my old ways and became something renewed, not renewed as in a positive affirmation sort of way - While I totally believe in being positive... I believe we all dance @ some point in our lives on our own score card not considering anyone or anything else, even if it's only for a blink of an eye or in my case what seemed like an eternity of 30 plus years... It's crazy the more I give of myself because I feel compelled to, the more I have been Blessed - I have family members and friends asking me what's up? GOD is what is up - I have friends and family that do NOT believe in GOD - and I feel lost trying to explain where I am today - and have realized that I can't explain how incredible GOD is or how lighter everything feels even when things are chaotic - they aren't ~ because by FAITH - I know GOD has me in his hands. In a nutshell for me to try and explain how great HE is would be minimizing HIM because HIS love surpasses my vocabulary, my vision, my entire existence - So to those who don't know and ask me - I am speechless not because I don't know but because I DO KNOW of HIS Love - there will come a time I pray that my very own daughter will come to her knees and know God for the loving Father He is - as well as several friends until then -

Remember God Can Use Anybody!
