So Thankful

i am so thankful to have been given the second chance to reclaim my life. my life hasn't been perfect in the last few months, and i've messed up a lot lately. BUT I HAVEN'T GIVEN UP, as i would have in the past. i think that says a lot about how much i've been learning to rely on GOD, and not myself. relying on myself has gotten me nowhere good in the past. relying on God over the past few months hasn't been easy, but it has had better results.

thank you, God, for placing people in my life who have helped me see that the enemy has tried so hard to destroy me. thank you for helping me see a glimpse of worth where i have seen none. thank you for helping me see a bit of beauty among all the rubble and garbage that i have lived amongst for so long. thank you for filling my life with new dreams and goals. thank you for showing me, through the eyes and love of these amazing friends in my life, that i am SO MUCH MORE than i ever thought possible, and that i have a purpose. thank you, God, for freedom.


  1. AMEN!
    Especially to the last sentence :)

  2. praise God! Amen! Nehemiah 4:2 "Can they bring the stones back to life from those heaps of rubble—burned as they are?" ~absolutely! God turns burnt stones into MIGHTY walls of purpose, protection and honor! For His names sake and His kingdom! we are all a bunch of burnt stones that God saw as redeemable - and we were redeemed! How amazing! Simply amazing!

  3. really positive. And you do have a purpose. Sarah
