I realized this morning that I don't really embrace life, I embrace God and who He is in my life. How I relate to God on every level of my life. I was inspired this morning by reading a little two page story of a young man who had his dad walk out on him as a young child. His story was so much like mine that it moved me to tears. I realized in that moment that it is not just the life I live that matters, or even embrace, it's God's Divine interventions into every aspect of my life that moves me to embrace the life I have.
I have also changed my statement and removed the "wife" part. I am letting go of marriage in tiny tIny baby steps. I have to say, for me this is a huge step even for a blog with few readers. I have so many people who come alongside and love on me. I truly am a blessed woman.
One of the leaders at our church asked that I meet with a woman who leads our woman's ministry. He wanted me to meet with her, to check and make sure I am okay. I lead and mentor many young women at this church and given my new status in marriage I was not even sure they would want me leading. I met with this gal who can grab the heart of an issue and Biblically speak wisdom. It's a gift she has and God uses her in the life of many. He used her in my life as she spoke of the realities I am to face. Realities I will touch on later in the weeks or months but for today I just smile knowing that God is sending those to speak into my life, His continued glory. I was affirmed to continue in mentoring as I walk through this season and the girls, all whom I have grown to love like my own daughter, are amazing to continue to bring their hearts for processing to me.
With this next season of life more than life I embrace God.
