Graet report @alex114. Thanks for sharing.Hi everyone! I've been gone for about a month, because I just started law school at Columbia! I went to the introductory meeting of the Christian Legal Society yesterday, and I just wanted to thank God for His mighty favor! He has brought me to one of the best law schools in the country and surrounded me with a community of others who love Christ.
I did a post-marital baptism ceremony on Sunday with my husband, and I have been feeling so close to the Lord. I am honestly so full of gratitude and love that I had to share!
I have an extra special praise report to share. Someone from LHCF blessed my mom and me in a very special way very recently. I had put in a prayer request a couple of weeks ago regarding my mom's furnace and @Sashaa08 said a very specific prayer for us that someone would be moved by God to bless us with a new furnace. Well, God heard her prayer and someone came through and truly blessed us. I can't help but praise the Lord and thank my LHCF sisters for your loving support. May God bless each of you abundantly above all that you could ever ask or imagine in Jesus' name, Amen!
To anyone outside of this thread, this may sound crazy, but my praise report is that I thank God for almost 52 years with a godly mother. He called her home and I am rejoicing in the knowledge that she knew the Lord, but more importantly, that He knew her. She is now reunited with my dad and my brothers who went on home before her. She has just joined that great cloud of witnesses who are cheering us on.
Even though I will shed some tears and I will miss our conversations, I know that I can rest in the Lord. He gave us His beloved Son and all who believe on the name of the Son of God will be saved.
Please join me in praising God for His tremendous love for us and for allowing each and every one of us to leave a legacy of faith if we so choose to walk with Him on a daily basis.
I have so much more I can praise the Lord for, but I will save some for another day.
I’ve been struggling with personal and professional growth this year. I’ll be getting a new job next year and I really want to go to a prestigious group back in my home state. However, there are some professional things that I just have not been able to accomplish during this time. At first I was angry and confused over the “why lies”. I assumed that since I wasn’t following the “guaranteed path to success” then I’m destined to fail. But God has been placing specific people in my life and putting me in these situations where I am growing and making connects that may just get me the position that I want without having the perfect resume.
As Christians we often limit blessings to those things that are perfect in our own understanding. But God sometimes works by putting you in situations were you are bringing so little to the table that your accomplishment can only be attributed to him.
