On this, my 60th Birthday, I feel compelled to write my first blog EVER!
This day is a reminder for me that God has plans for me and for my life. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11 (one of my favorite Bible verses)
Having had cancer nearly 22 years ago, I never thought I would live to see 60. And, I could never have imagined my relationship with God growing so deep as it is today. I remember, in the days when I was fighting cancer, so many people telling me they were praying for me. I also remember thinking they should spend their time and prayers on someone that really needed that and, someone that deserved those prayers.
More than 2 decades later, I fully understand the power of prayer, I know that prayer changes things, and I know I needed AND deserved those prayers in that overwhelming time of my life. Today, I know that it is OK to ask for prayers, too!
By the grace of God, I’ve come a long way, baby! Trusting His Plan!
