Transformed

God is allowing me to be hammered, beaten, pounded, put through fire, shaped and polished to improve my value.  God is preparing me for exhilarating events yet unseen.

It was not so long ago that I was broken, lost, hopeless, self-loathing, without purpose, in pain, ready to dig a hole and get in it. Yes that is a good place to be and generally when God starts to look rather appealing.  I see over and over when God takes away something (or everything) most precious, a loved one, a dream, a lost opportunity, security, it may be for a singular purpose. To grab a person’s attention to draw them near to God in a way God has been desiring for a long time.  Seems that few come willingly!

To accept heartbreaking disappointment and be willing to see if indeed there is something better (and there always is,) to seek to follow the Lord, to see the positive, not dwell on the negative, to see where it all leads…this is when real growth and transformation begins.

This is my story.  As I finally gave up all I thought I could not give up, my business dream, my husband dream, accepting a demotion from running the universe and choosing instead to follow God and be happy and content in any circumstance, this is when I developed an unbreakable friendship with the Lord and my mission really began.  I was truly 40 years wandering in my own dessert, but at the end of it, I was transformed.
