Thankful Thursday - You've Come a Long Way
Okay so I’m probably going to give away my age here but bear with me. Do you remember the old cigarette ad for Virginia Slims; “you’ve come a long way, baby”? And before any of you ask, NO I do not smoke. It's bad for your health…
Sorry for going down that rabbit trail, back to the topic at hand. I was thinking this morning how far God has brought us, women. We have indeed come a long way. There was a time when we were limited to how conversations were made between one another. Women of the bible met at the wells talking (I’m sure) as they filled their vessels with water. Can you hear their voices as they whisper “did you hear what God did through Esther’s life?” Or perhaps as Deborah sat at the foot of the tree she listened to many stories from women wanting to know how to find this God of Wonders. How thankful I am that we today can share the testimonies of God’s goodness in so many ways. We are not limited by time or distance. We no longer have to let our fingers doing the walking only through yellow pages but we can now allow them to walk across key boards.
Please do not underestimate the power of your testimony. Someone needs to hear of God’s love and mercy. And so finally I am thankful that today we can be a witness via email, internet web pages and blogging.

Who am I? I am a princess. For my Father is the King of kings and Lord of lords. This statement is of great importance because I was not always a princess. Once I was simply a lost soul dwelling in a pit. Then one day all things in my life changed. My Father, God reached down and lifted me from the pit giving me new life. In Him, I have found peace, love and hope. This is my greatest role by far for in it I find joy to be all the titles that follow me. Finish reading about me in my pages listed above.
