Recently during a lifeplan facilitation
a client asked, Darlene how can you be so happy? Usually you have a smile on your face yet I know you have gone through tremendous loss. How can you be happy?
Her question caught me off guard, since I ask the questions during lifeplans. Yet, I welcome women to ask me what is on their mind.
First, I gave her one quick answer. Then I thought no, there are two answers. And now, I add on one more.
God is my source for everything in my life.
- Hebrews 12:2a “fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith…” It is my choice where I will focus. When my life was collapsing I felt like the old Nursery Rhyme character, Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall and Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. All the kings’ horses and all the kings’ men couldn’t put Humpty Dumpty back together again. My life looked like that and felt like that. While being in my mid-40s to late 40s. Now what, God? AND GOD DID. Healed a broken heart and does restore and replenish all that the locust stole from me. Faithful GOD!
- PRAYER…I told God I was sick and tired of the enemy stealing from my life. He robbed me of so much. Then I asked God for the rest of John 10:10. I wanted the last part, “ The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.” (John 10:10, NASB)
