Amazing

It amazes me to realize Friday, February 6, 2004 I was sitting in a hotel room in St. Petersburg, Florida - a room I couldn't pay for, because someone I had trusted with my heart and my life had stolen everything. I mean everything. I had arrived that day for a conference, never knowing my life was about to end as I knew it.

I remember sitting in the corner - the words "devastated" and "numb" come to mind, but they don't begin to describe. For years I thought I'd hit rock bottom. That night I rolled off the continental shelf into a trench.

Somewhere in my heart a flicker of hope still lived. It was faint and buried deep, but it was alive. I didn't even know what to hope for except "something." A reason to keep living.

That was 10 years ago. I am OVERWHELMED AND AMAZED by what God has done. He met me in the corner of the room that night. I'd been a Christian my whole life but that was the first time I'd ever dared to look Him in the eyes and address Him with my whole heart: "Help me."

HE SURE DID!!!!!!!!!!! I never could've imagined a life like the one I'm blessed with now. And it just gets better every day. Don't ever give up, no matter where you are, no matter what you're feeling, no matter what you've been through. Cry out to Him. THERE IS NOTHING HE CAN'T DO.
