Journey

Linking with Charlotte at Spiritual Sunday  and Laura at Faith Filled Friday

"Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all" Helen Keller


I've been on a journey this last year...a wild crazy journey that started last January when the 'preacher man' asking me to write his story. He told me something that happened that I couldn't get out of my mind...a story about a little girl.

That child slipped into my heart.I thought about her...even prayed that He'd keep her safe.....and make her happy. And I asked Him to find her so I could tell her that I'm glad she survived what she had. The preacher man said I'd never find her. Impossible. But I held onto the hope of one day hearing her voice.....

A few months ago someone emailed me....asked if I was looking for G.R. She said she wanted to help me.

The child now a woman called me yesterday.....And the woman who helped me find her.....wanted to read my books....so I sent them to her. There's talk she may help translate them them into French. 

There were periods in this journey that I wondered why this had become so much part of my life.....other times I became frustrated and angry over how things were playing out. 

Now I know...He pieces things together in His time.

Step by step He leads me.....

Hi Nikki,

There are limitless possibilities for us if we are willing to put our faith and trust in Him! Even when it seems like a situation is impossible, He is very much in control and will move whatever He has to move, however He has to do it, in His own perfect timing. :)

Blessings for a week full of His promises and grace!

Good My Friend ... it is amazing how HE knows just what we need and though we may not understand the "why" certain things happen, take hold of us; I'm learning each day it is all but stepping stones and lessons towards the journey HE has planned for us - in order for us to be able to help others and give back.

How wonderful to be able to speak with the child (now a woman). and how fabulous that your words may be translated into French ... your purpose and lessons and over coming of detours continues to inspire others to live a life in HIM. Blessings, xo C.(HHL)

This is the knowledge that we both have learned - it is His timing - no matter what - not ours. sandie

It's interesting to see how things turn out, isn't it. We don't know the plan. We just need to have faith that all will work out.

The Father is watching over your every step, my dear friend Nikki. This blog post made my heart sing. I am still singing and smiling. So happy for you how it turned out, that you found who you were looking for. The Lord led you to her. The Father is on your side. Now maybe you can write another story - from another angle. Blessings on your New Year!

With much love and with much rejoicing,
Lidia
