There is hope...

As I sit here today looking over the last few years of my life and wondering where 2015 will take me I realize that all I can do is place each day in Gods hands...I must wake up everyday and pray for his will. Some days I catch myself questioning my purpose and wondering when I will arrive at the dreams I have built in my thoughts. Each day is a new walk that one day will lead us to our destination. We have to wake up and make a choose to move forward...
Today I feel in my heart I need to assure some of you "There is hope" No matter what your struggle is you can overcome!
I know some of you look at me today and see my pictures and  have no clue of my journey. A journey that has not been easy....A journey that sometimes has knocked me down...A journey that some days I had to reach down deep just to get out of bed. It was the journey that made me into the woman I am today.I know I still have much growing to do however today I am so thankful for God and that one day he showed me "There is hope"
As I look back and see the steps I took I know that many days he carried me. Some days were so overwhelming and I lost hope,but I looked to the hills knowing my hope was in God.
My journey isn't just about weight loss it is a journey of losing the man I thought id be married to until death, realizing in a moment others choices can change your life,accidents that put me in a wheel chair,surgery and sickness.All of these things had to be overcome taking small steps.
Make the best of this day that has been given to you...give it your all and most important trust God because in him"There is hope"

                      Psalms 62:5 Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him


  1. "You have come a long way, baby," as the saying goes. You may not realize it, but you are not the same person. You have grown soooooo much through all your trials. As Christians, it is my belief that that is what life is all about......bringing us closer to God and making us into his image. Our dream is not here. We have not reached our destination yet because it is not here on earth but in heaven with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. You are doing the right thing.....looking to the Lord each day for his will and filling your mind with scripture. God is filling that hole in your heart with himself. That is what he is wanting to do for all of us who believe in Him. Have an amazing new year.

  2. Thank you so much lady! You have been there from the start and been a great inspiration and strength!
