I'm so excited!

I don't know how it actually begins; the beating of the heart and soul of a life.

Many have argued the actual genesis of life; views from every possible angle.

Today I am just going to consider my life since I am the only expert on that subject.

I'm telling my story.

Who puts me together? 

"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb." Psalm 139:13

God, the Designer of Life has saw fit to bring this soul to life; to give me breath.

When we are young in years we often don't contemplate purpose; at least I didn't. 

About two decades plus ago I came to an intersection that has changed my life.  I surrendered my life to Jesus.

This experience set my feet in a direction, an experience that I am still exploring.

I have been saved, set apart for God and continue to mature in this thing I call "life".

Reflection is good! 

God who knitted me together and caused my heart to beat and then again my life to be made new--He is guiding me. 

I'm not sure I always listen; not sure I fully get it right all the time.

But today I rejoice for the mercy and grace of God; for the hovering of the Holy Spirit who never gives up on me and is the source of my comfort and strength.

“He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace” (2 Timothy 1:9).

Not sure if you guessed it yet?  

Today is my birthday.  Yeah!!!  

I love celebrations.  

I excel in the midst of others who love life.  

I like challenges but admit that sometimes they are painful, ouch!

Literally today, I begin a new adventure, a new road; a desire that I've had for a long time but never pursued it. 

I think I mentioned I love people :)  

I often find myself in the middle of conversations where the only answer I have to offer for life's troubles is from the Word of God. 

A little afraid of further commitments to an already "full plate" ; I have decided to begin a new journey; taking new steps on a new road.

Pray for me as I begin studies to achieve a certification as a Christian Life Coach.  I'm excited for  the challenge and the accountability to complete the task. 

So, Happy Birthday to me!  Holy Spirit be my guide and direction.

Yeahhhh!!!

God bless you!~Liz
