Before the mountains were settled in place, before the hills, I was given birth, 26 before he made the world or its fields or any of the dust of the earth. Proverbs 8:25-26 (NIV)
As I stand with my toe poised to dip into the pool of this next chapter of my life, I am beyond excited and elated! God planned who I was going to be and the journey my life would take long before I was born. This reality washes over me in waves at different times, that He had a plan just for me gives me a reason to smile and share.
So often as the number of our years creep up, we can become mournful about what was, what didn’t happen, the wrong roads taken,speed bumps, disasters and detours along the way. I am encouraged to know that those twists, turns and bumps were all part of God’s grand design for my life. So today, I am thanking God for another year of life, and the opportunities to b at His command. So fortunate and aware am I that He is holding the map!
Making His praise glorious!
