my God....my life

*A friend once asked me to explain my faith to her, why do I believe what I believe.  After much thought, I realized that I couldn't really explain why because faith is not something you just think about and decide, but I could share how He changed my life.  So here is part 1 of a 3 part series where I will try to explain my faith. *


When I was a child, about 5, I sat on my daddy's lap and watched my mommy pick up her suitcase and walk out the door, and out of my daily life for the next 7 years.
But God was God, and God was good.

When I was older, about 12, I lived with my daddy next door to my gramma Rose.  I ate breakfast and dinner at any friends home that would offer, then at bedtime I would walk to the corner bar, put daddy in the back seat, drive him home and put him to bed.
But God was God, and God was good.

When I was older, about 15, I started drinking myself, with my brother and his friends.  I went to a party on the West Side of downtown Buffalo, not a good place to be.  Three days later, I woke up and went home to my mothers.
But God was God, and God was good.

When I was older, 17, I became pregnant out of wedlock.  An unwed teen, still in school.
But God was God, and God was good.

When I was older, about 23, I was pregnant with my 3rd child, alone and away from family in Texas, with a husband who drank his paycheck at the Texas moon.
But God was God, and God was good.

When I was older, about 30, I became a single mom.
But God was God, and God was good.

When I was older, I examined my life, and discovered....

God sent me a loving step-mother,
God placed his angels around the car when I drove daddy home,
God protected me when I placed myself in dangerous situations,
God gave me a family to help me,
God sent friends to me in Texas,
And
God gave me a new life, in Him.

I do not ask why I had to go through situations in my life. I ask, why not?  Everything that I know, and everything that I am, is a result of all of my past.  So today I can say....
God is God, and God is good
yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
