Wednesday Wisdom : Live Your Life

Money can be replaced. 
Cars can be replaced. 
Houses can be replaced. 
Jobs can be replaced. 

People can't be replaced. 
The role they fill in your life in some cases may be 
filled by someone else, but the person can't be replaced. 

Time can't be replaced. 
God can give us strength to do more with the time we have left
but yesterday and all the other yesterdays are gone forever.

I've been told I'd be a good
DayCare Administrator
Real Estate Agent
Victim's Advocate

Name it I've been told I could do it well.

I've been told to go to
Bible College
Law School

None of those things stuck with me. 
Writing, I am an author
Wholeness Advocate, I am a FitPro in training
Business Professional, I have a jones for Business 

After loving a lot of people for the right reasons
and sometimes the wrong way
I've found the strength to live the life God gave me
Not the one everyone thinks I should. 
I admonish you not to wait long as I did
I pray you not have to lose all I've lost
Take stock of what you have today
Recognize and embrace who you've become
Be brave enough to be honest about who you want to be
Even if some of the people you love don't agree
Move forward
Be bold
Trust God with your heart's desires

Once you've fought to get where you want to be
Don't let all the pain, sacrifices and losses be in vain

Oh How He Loves

Not because I'm perfect...no greater lie would I have told
I'm healthy
I'm breathing
I'm alive
He sees and knows my heart
He loves my warts and warm fuzzies
He loves me flaws and all
Even after peering into the recesses of my soul
God loves imperfect me.
Peering into the depths of my desires
He still uses me
Not because of my gifts, disposition, talents or skills
He loves me...
Just because He does
He chooses to love me

Amazing to know He chooses love
My heart skips a beat each day at least once
I'm assured of His love
Not because of what He's given me
He is innately good
He's never lied 
He won't forsake me
I'm in the palm of His hand
Because I believe what God says
Oh How He loves me! 

He loves you too!
