My Life Changing Moments in a Short Amount of Time

My family has gone through many changes and just about all of them were good. I thank God for everything that has happened in my life but this timeline is special.

  • Had our 1year wedding anniversary
  • Had our first grandchild
  • Found out we’re going to be grandparents again

I am So Blessed! It just keeps getting better, all because I stepped out of the way and let God control my life. He is Lord if my life, so why was I in control? Why was I being god of my own life?

I always had amazing plans for my life and I was accomplishing them, thinking it was because God was on my side. But I should’ve been on His side. I began to realized I was controlling my own life and God let me.

I thank God he didn’t allow me to destroy myself before I got wise.

When I let go of the control over my life and surrendered, God gave me the life he had planned for me and it is beyond my wildest dreams. I just hate that it took me so long, but we all have things to go through so God can prepare us to live the life he has planned for us.

It’s not over God is still blessing me.
