One Woman. One Lord. One Life.
There’s never been a time in my life when God wasn’t a part of my life. I know that sounds weird to some, but for me, it’s always been the truth. My earliest memories revolve around God me talking to God. As a little kid I remember laying out on the front yard, staring up into the sky and talking to Him as if He were right there beside me. Talking to God is as natural to me as breathing. With that said, let me just say, my walk with Him hasn’t always been picture perfect. In fact, just the opposite. I rebelled as a teenager, walked away from my upbringing as a young know-it-all 20 something, ended up in a bad marriage, living clear across the country without a friend or family member to help when my marriage came to an abrupt end.
One morning, shortly after I was kicked out of our apartment, I was heading to work in bumper to bumper traffic. Depression waved over me. I had no hope, no idea of what or where to go next, and the wave of fear washing over me was drowning out every bit of confidence I had. Tears streamed down my face as traffic came to a complete stop. I could no longer fight the truth of my mistakes. I was alone, broke and no place to call home.
I leaned into my steering wheel, closed my eyes and begged God for mercy and forgiveness.
Before I could finish my request God was there, waiting for me.
That was 30 years ago.
A lot has happened since then – marriage, children, happiness and sorrow. Simply put, everyday life.
Through it all, God is with me.
It is my hopeful prayer that by sharing my life stories about what God is doing, you will find encouragement. You will find a friend who will always pray for you and point you back to the Lord.
Welcome to Window of Faith may we always walk together, encouraging one another and sharing the love of Christ to those who touch our lives.
Blessings and best wishes,
