Praise the Lord! I will praise the Lord with my whole heart, In the assembly of the upright and in the congregation. Psalm 111:1
I thought I might tell you why I chose the name whole hearted lady. It seems to fit who I am. God has done so many amazing things in my life. I never felt whole, until I met Jesus, and I'm not saying that I am complete, because I might not be here if I was, like Enoch! I am a work in progress, like the rest of us. God is continuing to make me more and more like Him daily, as I allow Him to do what He wants. It sounds so simple on paper, but most of us know that this requires discipline, a word that we would like to throw out of the dictionary altogether!
After the birth of my forth child, I was hit with a brick wall called depression. I should tell you, that there were some ugly, sharp rocks in this wall. I felt as if I was unknowingly standing on a trap door when it let loose. Depression hurts the entire body as research has stated lately. My muscles would ache for no apparent reason. I was unable to control the bad thoughts that plagued me every moment day and night. I couldn't get away from them. I thought God had left me, because of my thoughts. I think that lie was the worst one that I believed.
I came through this ordeal with a fresh hope and love for my Savior, who had never left me, and never would. I felt that I was raised from the dead in a way, because I had no hope that my life would ever be right again. He showed me what unconditional love is, and made me better than I could ever have been without it. Now, everyday is a day to be thankful for, to live life to its fullest, with my hand in His. Praise the Lord!
