21 years ago today Jeff came through our front door in a tiny apartment in the highlands and said “ honey I am done.” These words changed our life forever! Neither one of us ever took another drink or drug again.
We celebrated this day every year as our biggest holiday!! You see, when we decided to leave the partying behind and lead a sober life God’s plan for our life started to unfold.
Today I sat and just pondered that morning 21 years ago and all the years that followed. You see on that day I couldn’t see my future but God sure did. He knew what HE was preparing for us to do. HE knew how HE would use two broken people to sit with the broken of this world and be able to tell them how God delivered us from the life they are now trying to escape. A life we would surely have died from if not for HIS grace on us.
I am a firm believer that it is hard to lead people where you yourself have not been. It is not always what I would call a fun journey but God sure does have a plan for it all!! I am depending on that!!
Thank you Jesus for 21 beautiful years of seeing things clearly.
I know that you can do all things; no plan of yours can be thwarted.
