Let me just say how good God is! And how right on time He is at ALL times! Last week He brought a gift into my life that I had been needing and yearning for since I got out of prison.
Although I have a great support group and great friends in my life, I didn’t have any friends that are my age and single that will encourage me in the Lord. And God finally gave me this friend I’ve been waiting for. Don’t get me wrong… I love the friends in my life. But there is just something about having that person that can relate to you in every aspect, and doesn’t have a lot of other priorities, like kids or a husband. And she can relate to me… she has been down the road of addiction that I have been down. And it was totally a God meeting to set us up!
Here’s how it happened… On Tuesday, I posted on Facebook that I was going to Watermark church that night and asked if anyone wanted to come with me. And it just so happened that an old friend of mine read my post and had also seen on one of her friends pages that she was going to Watermark as well, so she introduced us on Facebook. Gayle befriended me and next thing I know, we are worshiping together at Watermark that night. Such a God meeting!!
We didn’t get to talk much so we planned to meet for lunch later that week. And when we did, I was just amazed at how much we have in common and how God had been planning this friendship.
Last night we went to my first concert in over 5 years! I’d been looking forward to this night for literally years now! And I got to go with my bestest friend Cindy, and my new best friend Gayle! It was a night of amazing worship! And God is just so so good!
He always brings the perfect gifts at the perfect time! And I am so thankful for my new friend Gayle! Check out her blog at http://www.graceforgayle.com/ and get to know my new friend!!
