I love a celebration of magnitude.
I love when God shows up in a BIG, GIGANTIC, HUGE way and we get to give Him all the glory.
My friend is celebrating.
She made a big mistake a few years ago and today it ends.
She has paid her dues.
She has spent time in suffering.
She has waited for today because today it ends.
Last night as we chatted about the celebration this coming weekend, this is what was said,
“My old job/life is what I prayed to be back in place- He laughed and gave me a million times better.”
The old life was great.
A great job.
Those are just some of the words I’ve heard her say.
I remember sitting in the courthouse a few years ago and wondering how this would end. It was frightening and I, as a friend, had never been in this place before. I watched her bravery and wondered how the next few months would play out. If I was scared being on the outside, how would she feel on the inside?
The months ended and we celebrated.
The next step began and the scheduled time grew.
1644 days (I only know that because she kept a calendar countdown)
It might seem like forever but in that time…
God has blessed her with a job that is so much better than the one before.
A new husband
A new home
New and old friends
In her words “He gave me a million times better.”
Remember friends when you are praying for your old life, Gods plans for you might just be a million times better.
