8.12.2021 – He wraps it all up, and ties it together with a beautiful bow…

Sitting here this morning,

I’ve been reflecting on some thoughts and conversations.

…life highlights replaying in my mind…

Good memories,

…hard memories…

But deeper realizations came.

And with these realizations

came a flood of gratitude,

and warm, happy tears. 🥰💗💝 ✨

“God has been writing my testimony, and He’s pulling it all together!”

Yes, I knew this.

Yes, I know this, but somehow in this moment, I realized it in a deeper way. 💡

Somehow, I could see things that I could not see before.

Things that God orchestrated, things that He is now bringing together…

I saw all of that, then,

and I saw all of this, now

And I saw

that it’s what God has been,

and IS orchestrating

into

a beautiful,

usable,

testimony

A testimony that has been, and is being written

and lived—

a life, in Him, that is being restored and redeemed.

He pulls everything together…

the pain,

the seasons of walking through darkness,

misunderstandings,

sin and mistakes,

torment,

fears…

But God…

He has this way

He restores…

with His kindness,

His truth,

His love…

…forgiveness,

healing,

deliverance,

purification,

vision and sight,

heavenly perspective,

His illuminating light,

wisdom,

redemption of time…

He brings it ALL together,

and He makes it into GOOD.

He wraps it all up,

and “ties it with a beautiful bow.” 🎁💝

He makes it into a “gift”—a treasure

that I would not trade for the world.

Every bit was, and is —worth it.

Thank You, Father. 💝 You make things beautiful. 💖
