Blessed

I would like to share something with everyone. I must say I AM BLESSED AND THANKFUL THAT I HAVE COME A LONG WAY. I have been through a lot in my life and never knew where I would end up. I went through so many obstacles in life that led me to believe that I would never make it, who was I, why am I still alive, what do I have to offer, looked up to negative people and things to lift my spirits high and so much more. I just felt so down and out and it took effect on a lot of people. I would go to church on and off or should I say I played church. I never had a close relationship with God at the time I must admit.... I was trying to change my life, but didn't want to make sacrifices. I must say that I was struggling day to day not knowing where the next meal would come from, how to pay for rent, light, household supplies, gas and anything you can imagine that cost money, and I was very unstable...But the most amazing feeling came on to me and thoughts ran through my mind EVERYTIME THE PASTOR WOULD PREACH. It was like he would preach to me like he knew what I needed to be fed because I was hungry. I was hungry to grow, to find myself, be a better person and have a relationship with GOD. By attending church, being surrounded by positive people, encouraging people I made my decision and send GOD I ACCEPT YOU INTO MY LIFE, I KNOW I AM GOING THROUGH TRIALS BUT TEST ME AND I PROMISE TO PASS, I WILL BE FAITHFUL TO YOU THROUGH PRAYER, SACRIFICES, TITHES AND SO MUCH MORE JUST PLEASE RENEW MY MIND RENEW ME..AND THERE IT IS....I HAVE PASSED QUITE A FEW TESTS, BEEN FAITHFUL AND MY LIFE HAS CHANGED DRASTICALLY. I HAVE BEEN BLESSED WITH A GOOD JOB, I KNOW WHERE AND WHEN THE NEXT MEAL IS COMING FROM, I CAN PAY MY CAR, RENT, LIGHT, I HAVE FAITH AND BELIEVE....I WILL NOT SAY IT HAPPENED OVER NIGHT BUT I COULD SAY THAT IF YOU TRUST AND BELIEVE YOUR PRAYERS WILL BE ANSWERED,,,,IT MAY NOT BE ANSWERED RIGHT AWAY BUT REMEMBER IT DEFINITELY WILL BE...ITS GODS TIME NOT OURS...I MUST SAY THAT MY FAMILY AND I ARE BLESSED TO HAVE A PASTOR AND CHURCH FAMILY THAT CARES, ENCOURAGES, LISTENS, HELPS OUT, MOTIVATES AND SHOULD I SAY ARE REAL.....I THANK GOD FOR PLACING ALL OF YOU IN MY LIFE FOR EACH OF YOU HAVE IMPACTED MY LIFE...THANK YOU SO MUCH. I AM SO BLESSED, HONORED TO KNOW THAT MY DAD, MY FATHER HAS NEVER TURNED HIS BACK ON ME...THANK YOU GOD FOR ALL YOU HAVE DONE FOR IF IT WEREN'T FOR YOU I DON'T KNOW WHERE I WOULD BE......I COULD GO ON AND ON ABOUT HOW GOOD MY DADDY IS TO ME, TO US....
