Welcome to this neck of the woods into my world today where, I am just elated! The feeling is euphoric! I am overwhelmed with joy and there is such a great sense of tranquility that is un-explainable through the natural human language. God knows I've always dreamed of this day when I could truly live the abundant life that He has promised to each one of us, and to really live life without limits.
No, I don't have a huge bank account with thousands of dollars stashed away! It is not that I am driving a BMW, a Lexus or some other expensive top of the line car. It is not that I'm living in a mansion or in a beach front property overlooking the crystal clear waters and the deep blue skies. None of that! All I do know is that I have a peace deep within me that surpasses all understanding. I am free to soar, to pursue my dreams and my passions in life, and to live in the 'above and beyond realm' as I rest in the presence of the King of kings and the Lord of lords.
You see, today July 7th 2012 is exactly one year that I tasted of the bitter cup of death. I almost died. As I laid there in excruciating pain, my body took on the shape of a foetus in her mother's womb. I thought to myself in that moment, would that be my last breath. But then it was not meant to be. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that I cheated death! God's Spirit within me took over and coached me through the entire ordeal. Why? Because, I have a purpose in life and my purpose had not yet been fulfilled. God's plan needed to be accomplished in my life. Death lost its sting and it had to give way to victory!
Jeremiah 29:11 says, "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." (NIV)
You may be going through your own difficult moments at this time, your valley may be deep and dark but the assurance that I give is that God's plan for you is to live life in abundance and live it without limits. What's before you is definitely better than what's been. Your future is filled with hope of what God has planned for you. Untangle yourself from any negative thoughts you may have. Whatever it is, it is just a test, but know that hope is ahead where God will in due season perfect the things that concerns you!
