Mama Didn't Tell Me There Would Be Day's Like This
I can't remember the last time I was this happy. The home schoolers graduation was one of the most beautiful experiences we have ever had. Four teenagers all committed to Christ, all with servants hearts giving God the glory for their lives and their accomplishments. It was a tear jerker, truly beautiful.
We had a speaker who works with them and knows them well. He began sharing the verse that inspired his message. "For I know in whom I have believed, and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I have committed to Him until that day. 2 Timothy 1:12. What was so special is that is one of my life verses. When I didn't know if my granddaughters were alright; when we couldn't even reach them by phone, over a year of total silence. I was in prayer in tears praying this verse for them. I told myself, God is able to keep. God's arm is not too short to save. I need to commit the children to Him. Casting all my cares.
Here we are. Those days of fear and sorrow behind us. These beautiful girls now have a future and a hope; not because of us, because of God! He brought them out. He kept them when they were in danger. He protected their hearts, their bodies, their minds. He has given them a future and a hope. They love Him. I am so grateful.
Mama never told me their would be days where my heart would be too full too hold it. blessing poured down and overflowing until I am undone from the joy. My precious sweet girl, here, graduated from high school, loved, befriended, and blessed.
Life just doesn't get any better than this. I know there is more in the future, more hurdles, more difficulties, but not today. Today is a mountain top. Today we give God the glory, for truly GREAT things He has done!
