Nancy Simmons - My "Life Reflections" The Journey Storybook Memories
In 2018 was a time of my life where I found myself at a huge crossroad. The unexpected passing of my father plunged me into an ocean of new life challenges I was completely unprepared for.
I had to decide which roadway I would take. Having my father in my life for 60 years has been a wonderful blessing and joy of life, and now I must go on without him.
It has been a real challenge to overcome the overwhelming sadness of missing him! And reliving many memories of my life with my daddy always being there, to now not having him here with me ever again.
There are so many waves I have had to ride out onto the sandy shores of life, to find comfort and assurance that God will bring me through this journey. Knowing I am in the palms of His hands.
Through the power of prayer and the presence of God in my life, has helped me so much to deal with the heartbreaking reality that my father is no longer just a phone call away.
The pathway of going forward for the rest of my life will now be without him. Therefore my life is going to be filled with only the life reflections of his influence in my life and the joy of his memories.
So far with my father's passing I have had to deal with many days of the up's and down's of life due to his absence. But praise be to God for He has been there embracing me with His loving arms and the presence of His Holy Spirit.
God's footprints on the sandy shores of my life shows me of His presence, knowing He is there with me, carrying me, guiding me through each and every day as I ride the challenging waves that come my way.
God is writing additional chapters to my storybook of life. This "Life Reflections" platform is where I can share with others my life reflections of lessons learned.
Lessons of how God reviles His plans he has for me and draws me closer into a daily walk and relationship with Him.
Where the destiny of my journey evolves; "God gets the Glory"! As my daily journey reveals who God really is and through my experiences, I have complete faith in Him knowing that God is in total control of my life no matter what the circumstances!
We have the freedom to choose within the constraints of who we are and the circumstances we find ourselves in. God sets the circumstances of our lives and so influences things that our choices are made in accordance within His plans.
So God is totally in control of the journey we travel! And on that journey we will experience abundance of joy and blessings that can go way beyond our expectations and imagination!
