12 days of thanksgiving || ashley went from suffering from bipolar affective disorder to being an author
TWTW called out for thanksgiving posts from our sisters HERE
And for the next 12 days we will see through the eyes of imperfect ladies, striving to give perfect praise to the Lord.
“By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.”
A certain wise man one said, “if you can think well, you will thank well.” As I think, all I see is God’s unending faithfulness in spite of my unfaithfulness.
I got into the year 2016 with my heart beating. I wasn’t dead. I wasn’t in the mental asylum. I would have been but God rescued me. I used to suffer from Bipolar affective disorder…long story. My testimonies keep heaping.
In the month of March, I was privileged to be among the vessels who organized the 1st ever life changing conference of the Women Of The God Kind (a non denominational Christian Women’s Organization geared at raising women to operate on God’s frequency.) If you were present , you’ll totally understand. My life hasn’t remained the same since then.
A short while after that, God showed up in the life of my immediate younger Sister. She got invitations to about 4 universities in the United States to study and play Basketball on scholarship. Need I mention that they were all 100 percent scholarship? She had to pray to know which one to choose. Talk about unmerited favor! Isn’t God good???
From the month of April – September, I was in the school of relationship…you should know what I mean. During that period, I drew closer to God. He taught me some lessons and revealed a few secrets and the rest is history.
But wait! You know the most important thing that happened to me this year? It was discovering the purpose for my existence on this earth! God revealed His foundational plan for my life to me. For a good number of years I’ve spent on earth, I had only a tiny idea what GOD called me to do. I was somewhat confused. Before now, most of what I had were misplaced priorities. Thank God all of that now is history. Oh God bless November, the 22nd!
Still on the thanksgiving note, just few weeks ago, my parents were BLESSED with a nice sum of cash to purchase a car for themselves. I’m not ungrateful Lord! Thank you!
I know God is not through with me yet.
Before, I round off my thanksgiving story, not making a joyful noise about TWTW platform would make this post incomplete. Precisely, on the 3rd day of November, God blessed me with TWTW family overseen by ever gracious and loving Frances Rukky Okoro.
Friends, God has been super gracious to me to say the least. If you are reading this, I’m so sure has been same to you. Think well and you will thank well!
Thank you God – my Heavenly Father.
Thank you Jesus – my Lord and personal Savior.
Thank you Holy Spirit – my divine Stabilizer (He told me to call Him that)
