Bad Times Worth Praising

When someone finds out their real and true purpose in life, It is a blessing that melts your heart. We are put through situations (good and bad) to mold us and make us become who we are meant to be. I think we remember the bad times more than the good times and they are truly needed to make us appreciate the good times and be thankful. To humble us.

It was difficult for me, but I had to praise God when my Father was executed. It was not God's will for my Father to live. He committed a series of crimes and he was never found to be innocent. Justice was served. During our mourning, my family actually talked and prayed together. I was raised by his parents and I had a relationship with him. I loved him. My Mom, on the other hand, abandoned me because she couldn't raise me at such a young age of sixteen. She lived around the corner from me for most of my life, but never once did she try to come back and get me. I praise God for that because if I was raised by her, I would have probably raised myself and I would have became a junkie just like her. Praise God for my Grandparents. They had just finished raising 5 kids and took on 2 more.

I lived in 10 years of Domestic Violence and I could have died many times. All that I can do now is praise God. I survived so that I can be a speaker for the cause and give the gift of my time to victims at the shelter. I survived so that I could witness to a co-worker and tell her that I had been abused too and that I would pray for her.

I lost every material thing that I had in a fire (that my ex-husband started) and I left my him by foot with two pillow cases of clothes, pregnant with a 4 year old. That helped me appreciate every penny that I would eventually work for. I appreciated the assistance that I received. This act alone helped me to become independent and have a little more self esteem.

Now, at the age of 33, I can honestly say that I am Blessed for each new day that I am given. I'm thankful for my husband who treats me like a princess. My children. My home. My job. My church. My Health. My Friends. Praise God!

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
