Lately I’ve been reflecting on the fact that I don’t often take the time to reflect on my life.
I’m far too busy with my endless To Do Lists and projects. Far too busy trying to accomplish, to reflect on what I have already accomplished.
So here’s my list:
I’ve survived childhood sexual abuse.
I’ve survived infertility.
I’ve survived divorce.
I’ve survived the harsh judgments of others, who know nothing about me, because of the generous hearts of those who do.
I’ve been baptized (again) in the Jordan River and walked where Jesus walked…
I know Jesus more today than I did yesterday.
Each time I’ve been s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d by the Lord, I’ve been blessed.
Through everything that has ever happened to me, I can honestly say: It has been worth it.
God has made me fruitful in the land of my suffering.
