The Last 2 Years
Over, the weekend. One of my friends...reminded me of all the things that had happened in my world. She was like you have been going through it the last 2 years.
I was like now that you say so...I guess I have...but GOD has kept me together!
Two years ago today, my younger brother almost died in a car accident...his two good friends did died...and he could not understand why, he didn't die. The only thing, my family could say is...GOD has plans for you. Your work here is not complete! We don't know why he didn't die...only GOD knows that answer.
What happened was one of his friends were driving and they all fell asleep and ended up in this creek. When they woke up, they were in the creek. The road leads into a creek, with no type of warning to let you know it's near!
So, one day I was driving on this same road. A road, that I have driven MANY times before and the craziest thing happen. I want to say it was a year or so after this incident. That, I dozed off driving on this same road and when I woke up...I was almost to the creek...I had driven past my turning point BUT luckily I awoke in time to stop my car before going into the creek! SCARY!
I was in a state of shock for a moment there. It's only now, that I realize, that maybe that was for me to see how it had happened. I mean in a blank of an eye...driving on this dark road if you just happen to close your eyes, for a second...that could be the end! Just imagine that! In one second your life could be gone, it is just that fast! What a wake up call!
Then, after my younger brother's accident. My aunt died from an illness (2010), then my uncle died from a single car accident (2010), then my marriage was over (2011), then this year 2012 my older brother died and most recently my Grandpa this past summer! Can you say, it's been a rough last two years! OMG!
Through it all, GOD has kept me together and I know that the ones that are no longer here it is b/c their time was up. You know. So, that keeps me at peace. Of course, I think about my loved ones but GOD has spoken. AMEN
So, YES times may be rough and you may not understand why even you are here. Just know that GOD has a plan for you! Jeremiah 29:11 says: "For I know the plans, I have for you.” Don't give up when it gets too tough! The last two years have been something for me but the years before hand was something as well....but yet I have not given up! Don't you give up either!
So, KEEP STRONG & FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT OF FAITH!!! We can do all things through GOD who strengthens us!!!
GOD LOVES YOU!!
