How?

I often ask myself, “How?” How did I get where I am today in my faith? Looking back I realize how long I’ve been on this journey and how difficult some of the stretches have been. But one constant is that I continue to look for God in everything. Even if it seems small, I have faith that God is in all and wants me to follow the path I am taking. And I never cease to be amazed at God’s creation and love for even me, me who constantly messes up and asks for forgiveness. Because I believe in God’s love so deeply, I know that I will never sink as deep into the pit as I once did. God is always by my side to call on for help. I will continue to cycle through the ups and downs of life, but without the downs I couldn’t celebrate the ups. Corrie Ten Boom said, “There is no pit deep enough that God is not deeper still.” This I believe with my whole heart. Because of this, I live pieces of heaven each day. You may ask, “How can I find heaven on earth too?” And I would say, “I can’t find it for you. Only you can find it for yourself by listening to your heart so deeply that you are able to follow what you hear. Doing this over and over again, you get to experience the unique treasure God has for you. All I can do is show you tools that help me along the way and share stories of my own way of life while walking with Christ by my side. But you must work hard and you must experience it for yourself.”
