Thankful Thursday-Epic Story


I am blessed beyond belief to be part of Gods epic story. He is the greatest author ever, and He chose to create me, and include me in His book. Then, I was invited personally by Him, to have my name included in the Lambs book of life. Now, I have a reservation to walk on the streets of gold, my name has been written down. Praise God, glory to His name. At the beginning of my conception, pills were taken to get rid of me, bleeding began, along with cramps. My momma thought she had passed me down the toilet, until 6 months later, I started kicking. God did not mean for my life to be flushed down into the sewer, He had plans, and a purpose for my life. Now, that is one epic story, and I am very grateful to be part of it. My life has had many ups and downs, twists and turns, but one thing has always remained, God, and His love for me. Thank You dear God for giving me a place in Your epic story of life. I love You.

I am floored by your story; oh, how glad I am that God's plans for you were so much bigger than your mom's. How that must hurt, though; moms are supposed to love and protect us. To have to process something like that; to find the ability to accept and move forward (I don't know if you have ever forgiven; hard, hard thing..); to be able to accept the love of God and to know that HE does have a plan for you? Oh, how amazing! THank you for sharing.. and know that I am truly thankful for the gift of YOU!

One of the definitions of epic is:
surpassing the usual or ordinary

Not only did this post qualify surpassingly, but your sweet life does as well.

You are a blessing...
