Yesterday was Veterans Day here in The United States. My daddy was a Vietnam Veteran.
He passed away in 2014 with his girls huddled around him. My sister, our mother, and I held on tight until he took his last breath. God is so good. The Lord blessed us all with closure and a super peaceful send off at the funeral home here in town. The Spirit of God was so thick in that place. Hallelujah!
This morning as I was looking in the mirror putting on my makeup I could see my dad so clearly. I look just like him with his nose, deep dimples and all. It was just overwhelming for a moment. I missed him so hard all of a sudden. When I long for him if I just look in the mirror, he’s right there. It’s amazing. Praise God…
I thought about how far my Heavenly Father has brought me in my 33 years of life on this earth. I thought of how my dad would be pleased with all that The Lord is doing in my life right now. This year has been amazing for me. Many tears of pain, freedom, and release. Some of you know where God brought me from. You saw me struggle these past couple of years. Thank you for praying! God came through for me in the greatest of ways this year!
I thought I was settled in life just waiting on The Lord. He had this beautiful plan and Call on my life that I had no idea about until this year. He had to uproot some things first, but what He’s doing now is so beautiful! He truly makes all things new! God is so good. He loves us so much! He caught all my tears this morning as I overflowed before Him. I’m never alone. I cherish feeling His Presence on my skin faithfully each day.
2018 has truly been my year as was prophesied over me through Facebook. It’s been a year of dramatic changes, unveiling, truth, healing the hurts, major breakthrough and overwhelming love. I had no idea how deep we’d go this year, but The Lord has really taken me deeper than I’d ever imagined-in life, Healing, and so much more. Praise His Holy Name! The song “Oceans” by Hillsong rings so loudly for me.
So today I give thanks for my earthly father in the flesh and I thank God for freedom. I praise God for the great freedoms I have as an American, but more than anything for the freedom I have found in my Messiah and King!
Oh, the countless blessings I have known!
Yeshua truly heals the broken-hearted and binds up our wounds. This season of inner Healing has been so hard at times but so rewarding as I’ve been learning to lean on God in every way each day.
Praise God Who is Faithful through it all. My best friend.
God bless all the Veterans around the world every day in The Name Of Yeshua! He is a Father to the fatherless.
Oh, how He loves us! Amen 🙂
