I’m guest posting at Katie M. Reid today.
Have you ever been blindsided by life?
From out of nowhere, you’re hit with bad news and in an instant it all changes.
- The marriage is over.
- The child’s addicted.
- The job ends.
- The car’s wrecked.
- The money’s gone.
- The diagnosis is pronounced.
And all you can wail is WHY?
I get it. It happened to me, too. I expected that since life went pretty well for me as a WILD CHILD, it would continue to go well for me as a CHURCH GIRL.
See, I didn’t reconcile my differences with Jesus until I was in my 30’s so I had plenty of time to test the boundaries of the law, my moral compass and whatever gods there were. As a Club Dancer, then a Playboy Bunny, I was offered everything a girl could want…in exchange for what every boy wants. I had money, cars and adoration.
Every kind of indulgence was available to me.
When the One True God led me out of that life and into one with Him, I naturally assumed that things would only get better. Wouldn’t you?
And, they did. For a while.
