Hi and welcome to my blog, Transforming Grace!

Lily 50I’ve been praying for each and every one of you. I hope everyone who reads this finds encouragement and will look to our heavenly father for his or her uncertainties, problems, hardships, and praises. Believe me I can be the first one to tell you I struggle and things get out of hand, BUT it is amazing when we are still and listen to God’s voice how He makes all things work for our good. (Be still and know that I am God. Psalm 46:10). May all the broken find that His love endures forever. May all who are weary find His rest through His loving word. May all who are hopeless run to His name because He is Jesus and I can promise you, you will never be the same. 

My journey has been a crazy one and I am going to share about some of my past and hardships in hope that God will use it to help you through your very own struggles. If there is anything God has done in my life it would be transformation. Now I’m not talking about a makeover at the Clinique counter. I am talking about the best transformation there is… a new set of eyes, ears, and heart. It’s like I am seeing for the first time and taking in all God has always intended for me to see and do. (The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance. 2 Peters 3:9). He loved me so much that by His grace He forgave me and pushes me to go deeper every day. God is my biggest motivator.

My journey has been like a transformation of a beautiful butterfly. I use to be a caterpillar so small and so close to the earth’s ground. Crawling around with my ugly outside without a care in the world. But through the power of prayer and Jesus, He came to me and said if you follow me I will make all your ugliness (lies, hurt, shame, guilt, secrets, scars, etc.) into something beautiful. So today I am here to say I am no longer a caterpillar. I have broken free from my chrysalis and have a joy indescribable. I am a beautiful butterfly who gets overwhelmed with all of the love from my savior. Are you willing to leave all your dreams behind and give all your worries to Jesus? It’s not the easiest decision you will make but it will be the best. There is nothing that makes me want my old life back. Jesus has transformed me and He can do the same to you. All you have to do is respond to the Holy Spirit.

So thank you for finding your way to this blog, God is good.
