I had been meaning to go to the hardware store and buy some racks for the garden hoses, I hate seeing them haphazardly hanging from the faucets, but I’m still on a budget and they really aren’t that necessary. So on my morning walk, feeling rather sorry for myself, I spot something on the sidewalk, and yes, it’s a hose rack. I stopped suddenly and realized it was from my HH, letting me know that He hasn’t left me, and no, I’m not alone. I know it sounds silly, but He left even a barbecue grill practically outside my door when I was hoping for one.
It’s crazy! My life has changed so much in this past year. It’s true that when we seek Him wholeheartedly, He will enlarge our tent far and wide. I have even been blessed with being asked by the RMI ministry team to join them and help with editing some of their new publications. I never imagined in the beginning how a shattering event like the disintegration of my marriage could precipitate such positive changes in my life.
HE has most certainly turned my ashes into beauty! My overwhelming fear of a life of singleness is slowly starting to feel like empowerment, praise God! Me, someone who was drowning in the bottom of a bottle of vodka a year ago, have become a source of encouragement and faith to others. WOW.
I’m beginning to have days when my EH is the last thing on my mind, and I sometimes wonder why I even want to be restored. But I’m learning to let my HH take the lead, whatever He has in store for me, I know it will always be for my good.
Thank you, RMI, God bless each and every one of you, for bringing me back to what’s important to me, and in turn, allowing me to draw others back to Him as well.
“We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment.” (Romans 5:3-5)
