El Shaddia

God is so mysterious.

We will never be able to comprehend all that He does and all that He is doing in this world. The way He uses each person in just normal day to day life amazes me. Not only each person but each circumstance. Everything we go through in life He uses to make us stronger in Him. 
To make us GROW in Him.
I will never be able to put into words the excitement He has brought to my life. Everyday I learn something new and encouraging! I can honestly say I DON'T KNOW what I would do without Him. 
He is who I lean on when my world goes crashing to the ground. 
I don't see how I ever made it without Him. I would have nothing to live for without Him. No purpose in life. 
He gives everything meaning.
I've gone through many changes in the last couple months of my life. Many heartaches and many struggles. But God was always there for me to run to. He made losing everything the best experience of my life. 
You know, we don't realize it but a lot of times God takes everything away from us to make us realize that He really is ALL we need. El Shaddia. My God is MORE than enough. 
My prayer is that I always remember this. No matter what. I  pray that I will be a light to this dying world. That I will make a differnce because of the difference HE has made in me.

Job 11:1-20
"Then answered Zophar the Naamathite, and said, Should not the multitude of words be answered? and should not a man full of talk be justified? Should thy lies make men hold their peace? and when thou mockest, shall no man make thee ashamed? For thou hast said, My doctrine is pure, and I am clean in thine eyes. But o that God would speak, and open His lips against thee; And that he would shew thee the secrets of wisdom, that they are double to that which is. Know therefore that God exacteth of thee less than thine iniquity deserveth. Canst thou find out the Almighty unto perfection? It is high as heaven; what canst thou do? deeper than hell; what canst thou know? The measure thereof is longer than the earth, and broader than the sea. If he cut off, and shut up, or gather together, then who can hinder him? For he knoweth vain men: he seeth wickedness also; will he not then consider it? For vain man would be wise, though man be born like a wild ass's colt. If thou prepare thine heart, and stretch out thine hands toward him; if iniquity be in thine hand, put it far away, and let not wickedness dwell in thy tabernacles. For then shalt thou lift up thy face without spot; yea, thou shalt be steadfast, and shalt not fear. Because thou shalt not forget thy misery, and remember it as waters that pass away: and thine age shall be clearer than the noonday; thou shalt be shine forth, thou shalt be as the morning. And thou shalt be secure, because there is hope; yea, thou shalt dig about thee, and thou shalt take thy rest in safety. Also thou shalt lie down, and none shall ,ake thee afraid; yea, many shall make suit unto thee. But the eyes of the wicked shall fail, and they shall not escape, and their hope shall be as the giving up of the ghost."
