Today I am halfway through the journey of a lifetime, an adventure with You, Lord, Creator, Lover, Father, Friend. I remember how You captivated my heart by calling me to an adventure. You invited me "come with Me" and promised that it will be wild, great and full of You. Thinking back on the past four months it was already all of that and more... Reality struck me for a moment, as I perceived the beauty around me, the palm trees, the Caribbean ocean, the small islands so close that I can see the white beaches and hear the drumbeat of the reggae music. With a big fat question mark on my face at the realization of where I'm at, I stand awestruck by the mysterious way that You pursued me out of the hands of the enemy. And at Your perfect master plan to make me fall completely in love with You. Lord, I don't want to forget, please don't let me forget how Your loving arms wrapped around this broken girl for the first time. God remind me of every whisper and make me aware of that feeling over and over again. You are faithful, God and You are real.You called me into a plan, perfectly laid out in the palm of Your hands. And what motivates me to follow You wherever You lead are the puzzle pieces that You release bit by bit into my life. Those are the only parts I can hold on to, Lord, because whatever I lay my feet upon will crumble beneath me, but You are the cornerstone which my feet are steadfast on. I will pursue You my King, I will dig deeper. What You reveal to me will be my only fortes and shelter. I'm nothing God.. But to You I am someone. Your the only one who could take this hater and turn her into a lover, who could recreate this destroyer into a reconciler. Once I was a manipulator, now I am an encourager. You took my heart of stone and gave me a heart of flesh... Once I was a slave, but now I'm a Son. I once was a PROSTITUTE but now I am a BRIDE. Yes, You manifested the most beautiful love story in me, Lord. I found my refuge in everything but You, giving my heart away several times, even though its purpose was to ever be in your perfect hands. You were always waiting for me, always turning back to me, always LOVING me. You are the greatest Love story ever written, Jesus Christ. You will forever be on my lips...
