Good evening, I trust all is well with you. Tonight’s blog will be unlike any other. We will do a little exercise, often we get so overwhelmed with life. When that happens its easy to forget how far we have come.
This exercise comes from the book Girl Pray For Me by Penda L. James you can buy it off Amazon. Tonight I’ll write where I’m from BUT you’ll also see where God has me now.
After you see how the exercise goes I challenge you to do the same. You might be from my tracks BUT your tracks are just as important. Again the purpose is to stay thankful in everything. I’m sure you will see how Gods grace and mercy have kept you!
