MY NEW LIFE
I just want to say THANK YOU to God, for all He’s done and continues to do in my life.
In the past two years my life went from a nightmare to a beautiful dream. Like many others, I had read The Secret, only to put it on a back shelf, until something reminded me to pick it up again. Believing can change everything, I’m proof.
My ex-husband and I owned two successful restaurants that our daughter helped us in, hoping one day they would be hers. I loved it. Piece by piece my world fell apart – my husband and I divorced after 20 years of marriage, one restaurant was temporarily closed, only later to be sold by my now ex-husband, without my knowledge. The other bigger, more successful restaurant was set on fire. It was ruled arson. My ex-husband had allowed the insurance to lapse, it was a total loss. Both restaurants were bought by me, from money I received after losing my parents. No loss to him.
I felt like a total failure. He spent what money he made from selling off my smaller restaurant, piece by piece. In my heart I had planned on re-opening the smaller one when I came back from the devastation of the other one (it was in a different state). You can imagine my heartbreak to find out the small one was also gone. In the middle of all of this mess, my then husband was cheating, I lost my car, my truck, my motorcycle, and I almost lost my home. He let all the debt fall on me by filing bankruptcy. I felt lower than I think I have ever felt in my life combined.
I would try to re-read The Secret and then found The Power. At first I thought, look what’s happened to me, what have I got to be thankful for? Look at my life.
Suddenly, when I wasn’t even looking, God sent me “My Knight In Shining Armor”. I thought a relationship was the last thing I wanted, but I was wrong…
To make a very long story short, I am now married to the most wonderful man in the world. He is the most thankful person I have ever met in my life. Each day, he reminds me of all the beautiful things I do have to be thankful for. Because of this, I continued to be thankful for getting to keep our home, and God performed a MIRACLE that let us keep it. Everything gets better and better every day, in every way.
If I can only say one thing to encourage you, let it be: Never give up. If I can have a whole new life… so can you. Keep looking for it, even if you don’t see it yet, it’s coming.
Love and Blessings to you all.
