Recently I have been in an almost fatal car accident but by the grace of God I was left untouched by the traumatic event. The next day I gave everything to God. I couldn't live my life without him because my life without him was crumbling before my eyes. It's been a month and things have really been going great for me. I feel God working with my heart and my life and things are smoother than they have ever been. I have noticed that before when I walked with God I often failed because I would make one little mistake and think that God turned his back on me and didn't want anything to do with me because of that. (Totally wrong- that's WHY Jesus died for us!)I just kept digging deeper and deeper into a hole. At the time I had no idea, but now I see it without a doubt. I'm ashamed to say I got inolved with drugs over a two year period and thought I could both be a daughter of God and a prisioner of the drugs. Not until now do I see that I was very badly mistaken. Although the drugs were not hard core by any means, they completely changed who I was. I lost all my passions and drives in life. My emotions seemed to hide and i'm still struggling to remember the different emotions one can have. It really numbed me. I dropped everything for God one day, and put everything I had in him. It took a lot for me to give everything to him and to not be in control of everthing, but I'm so glad I did. My stress level is diminishing to pretty much nothing, and everything seems to be working out in my favor. I'm not sure where I would be without God and so glad i'm trusting in him. He is amazing!
Trust in the Lord with all your hear and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6
