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.


God bless you!~Liz
