My Birthday

Today is my birthday, my 32nd birthday! Praise God! I am so blessed I almost can't contain myself, but at the same time I still have to fight through the temptation to dwell on the things I don't have yet and the things I haven't achieved yet. Isn't that kinda funny? I know it may sound silly, but I'm just keeping it real. I am amazed daily at the things God is doing through me and I'm still dumbfounded as to why He chose me. I don't ever take for granted the call He has placed on me or the results that He is bringing forth through me. And yet there is still so much more I want out of life and in my life. It's a fine line we walk. But today I choose to praise and thank God for allowing me to see my 32nd birthday! I choose to rejoice in the fact that I am even still alive today (when I honestly shouldn't probably have survived a number of stupid things from my past)! I make the choice today not to quit or give up or dwell on the trials I face and I shout because I have the victory and I am more than a conqueror! I thank God for using me as an inspiration to the ladies in jail, letting them know that if He can make something out of my life He can definitely do something with theirs! I am grateful that He demonstrates His unconditional love and forgiveness to these women through me! I am humbled and yet I will remain hungry for more! I also thank God for the support and encouragement from my Summit family...Pastor and Ms. Carla thank you for never giving up on me! I love all of you, Tomi
