So She Made It Homemade’s is officially in business. I’m super excited and I hope that people will support me. Who knew that I would have my own business?? I’m really excited that the Lord has given me this opportunity. So many people don’t know what to do with their life, and here God has allowed me to do so much. He has given me the gift of staying home and being a mother and a wife first. Then he gave me the gift of writing so that I may add ‘author’ to my bio, and blogger too! And now he has allowed me to make and create and do and share with people!
I can’t help but to think that there’s something bigger to this picture, ya know? A purpose or a plan. Never in a million gazillion years did I ever think that I would ever be (could be) a part of God’s plan. Never!
Friends, He is so real. Like really, really, really, real. I am such a testimony.
I reflect back on my life and there is no reason that I should be where I am today. Absolutely none. I wasn’t heading this way on my own. If anything, I was walking in the opposite direction. I was lost. I was too proud to admit it. I didn’t deserve good, let alone great. But He thought differently.
And then I realized that He made me that way for a reason. He could have easily made me so that I would have followed Him from the beginning. He could have made it so I didn’t stumble along the way. But He didn’t. He made me the way I am because He knew that my story would be good. He knew that I would relate to people. He knew that I would appreciate all of the intricacies of His plan. And He’s right.
Don’t believe me? His way is always better than anything any of us can come up with and I struggle with trying to make everything work myself, no help from anyone, and I get tired, and I get worn out because I can’t, no matter how hard I try, I just can’t do it, none of us can.
You know, I’ve been without a car for sometime now. I’ve been stuck at home. I’ve given up church because of Justin’s schedule. I was feeling hopeless. I realized just how much I needed church. I would wake up mad on Sunday mornings because I was missing out. And you know what He did? Well, He didn’t give Justin the promotion at work that would have given him off on Sundays as well as a company car, that would have been too obvious, but no, He figured out how to get me to enjoy being at home (She Made It Homemade’s) and then He just randomly gave Justin off on Sundays. That’s right! I’m going back to church! Not only am I going back to church, but we’re going as a family!
See? He knows what He’s doing! And He always does it better than any of us could imagine.
So because I am relatable. And because I am real, I want you to believe me. I want you to know how great my King is and how awesome (and hard) it is to serve Him. I want you to know that it’s never too late to find Him. And I want you to know that He’s always with you, always been with you, just waiting patiently. The question is, are you tired enough to let Him help you yet?
