serious. So, looking back at your life, at getting married at forty, having your children when you were forty-two and forty-four is there anything that you would change? A few years ago, I would have said yes. I probably would have said, yes. But as I have grown more in the scriptures, in the word, I realize that if I had gotten married earlier, I may not have had this ministry that God wants me to have now, sharing it with other women. So again, but there were times when I thought I should have gotten married earlier, I should have said yes to this person, but now I say, no. And that takes a lot from me to say no. But this is only because I’ve grown to this point. If I had changed anything I don’t, I know God can give you any ministry, but I don’t think I would have had this ministry that I love and have a passion for so much. So, everything did fall into place; God caused it to work for your good because when I look at your life, I see that things had to happen the way they did for you to be able to find purpose and walk in it. « 26 DOZ Magazine July 2018 Yes, again that’s why I say that a few years ago I might have said, yes, but now that I’ve grown, and I’ve reached this point I see, as you said, it was all in God’s plan. Everything works together for good to those who love God and are called according to His purpose, and He certainly has worked it out for good, and I encourage women who want to get married, and they have made a mistake they’ve been in a bad marriage before and now are ready to move on, God is able, again there are stories from my website. I’m not trying to encourage anyone to go there, to the married over forty, but God has given me such a great ministry through others. When they share their information, I’m sending it out, so others can be encouraged. So again, realizing that God is able He is definitely able to take you from where you are now and regardless of what the circumstances are, as I said before, there is a power greater than circumstances, there is hope there is God. And that would be my closing words. Photo Credit: All photos supplied by Cynthia Wilson James.
