10 years ago… I was not the person I am today. My life was falling apart. My marriage was holding on by a thread. Ten years ago, I was a mess.

Ten years ago, I hit rock bottom. The perfect life I pretended to build fell through my fingers. I had no choice but to look up and say, “God if you are real, I need you.” And in that moment, I felt His presence. In that moment life changed.

Slowly. I learned what it meant to walk with God.

Slowly, I let go.

Slowly, I saw His presence all around me.

God had been there all along. I was just too busy trying to build the life I thought I wanted to recognize Him and His presence.

The Holy Spirit had been pursuing long before I acknowledge Him. But 10 years ago. That was when my life radically and forever changed as I learned to let go of the life that I thought I wanted and embraced life with God at the center.

It’s been an amazing 10 years.

My life was given new purpose.

My marriage was restored.

My life became peaceful.

It’s been hard. Some things I thought would never change, changed.

Some people I thought would always be there, are no longer here.

But through it all, God has been faithful, leading, guiding, protecting, and strengthening me.

I can honestly say, these last 1o years have been the BEST years of my life. More love. More peace. More purpose than I ever could have imagined.

Thank you, Lord, for the good work you are completing in me!

“Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus (Philippians 1:6).”
