Funny how some things happen, I wrote a letter today, I've waited a long time to contact the person I was writing to. About 34 years. I won't go into details but I wrote to the person that brought me the gospel in South West Texas in 1980. I wanted to tell her the rest of the story, how my life and her planting turned out. I wanted to tell her how Good The Lord has been to me.
I wrote the letter before I made my card for this weeks Word Art Wednesday Challenge and the beautiful new verse from Jeremiah:
I was at this friends house out in the middle of nowhere also called Sanderson TX and I felt the Lord tell me I needed to pray. I did and in that time He told me it was time to go home to CT. I did not want to go to put it mildly. I understood even then sometimes you just had to obey the voice of God whether you liked it or not.
The Lord gave me that verse in Jeremiah as a promise and he included one more verse, the one right before it:
Jeremiah 17:7 says,
"Blessed is the man that trusteh in the LORD; and whose hope the LORD is".
I went back kicking and screaming and in my heart clutching that promise that if I would trust Him it would be good, very good. I did trust him and He did keep his promise. My life has been richly blessed in so many. many ways
He also promised one day I would go back. The I thought it would be two years not decades!
But His way has worked so much blessing in my life, I can't even begin to list it all.
I made my card for my friend , typed a long letter and mailed it off.
I will wait to hear back and if I do I will send her my WAW challenge card:
I colored this with my Spectrum Noirs, quite happy with them!
If I can leave a thought with you today:
Trust God, he knows what he is doing, walk in His ways and you will never be lost.
Thanks for stopping by,
