I am a single mother of two daughters, ages 8 and 5. I began a relationship with Christ, or so I thought back in 2000. However, after my husband left, my so called relationship with Christ walked away with him. I spent almost 2 years wandering, doing all the things the world claims will make you happy. I was not happy; I was miserable. On New Years Eve 2010, the Holy Spirit spoke to me in a quiet whisper, as I reflected on the year past and realized I hadnt grown or changed one bit. If anything I had fallen even further. He spoke to me and asked me why was I running, why was I searching for love when He was right there and had been the whole time? I felt the tug of the Spirit, and the next morning, every thing changed. I began my relationship with Christ for real on January 1, 2011, eleven years after I thought I had been saved.
The past year, God has grown me and changed me, provided for me and loved me so intensely that I realize I wasnt walking with Christ before, I was walking with my own version of God. He has blessed me so abundantly, but it is a daily struggle to get my eyes off my own circumstances and the few things I am lacking, like a loving Godly man to share my life with, and put my eyes where they belong, on Jesus.
This former wayward sparrow has found her way home, and it is good to finally land and be at rest, with my Papa, who loves me unconditionally! :)
