I feel like I’m starting life all over again. Most of my early life I struggled with a verbally abusive step dad, that I could never draw close to him! He and my mother always kept me from knowing my real dad. I always had a deep yearning to find out who my biological father was. When my brother died at age 19, I got a call from my biological father, and we talked a few times on the phone. I was going to meet him a couple of years after speaking, and three months before we were going to meet, he passed away. The heaviness has been GREAT for a long time. I’m not going to let bitterness take me to the grave. So many unanswered questions in my life. I’ve made the decision now that at age 56 that there is nothing I can do to fix this problem, except to just give it to God. He is my Father, my Keeper and the One who can fix this BROKEN VESSEL.
This has definitely been a year of many changes in my life. I am comfortable that God has, and still is in control of everything. I love all the new friendships we’ve made here in Nebraska, and look forward to an awesome 2018! This year has given me a chance to personally evaluate myself, realize that I needed to slow down a little bit, and allow God to minister to me. I’ve always been so busy helping other’s that I fell short on some things that God needed to perfect in me. I am still serving in other area’s of ministry, and very thankful for God’s direction. An awesome area that God has opened is a Monday Night “Every Man A Warrior” connect group, led by Brian Hall. This has helped me tremendously in being accountable, and working with others in the group. My prayer for 2018 is to continue to be sensitive and listen for God’s voice, and not jumping ahead of where He wants me to be.
I’m thankful for everything that God has done for me in the past. I’ve made several changes since June 2017, and look forward to the opportunities that God is opening up for me. I’ll be posting periodically the positive things that God is doing that I am blessed to be a part of and sharing my thoughts. Feel free to contact me anytime.
