Gospel singer, Lara George is a year older and she reminisces on her journey so far.

According to her, it’s been 20 years since she started singing professionally and she has so much to thank God for.

She wrote,

I reminisce and can only be thankful. So much to be thankful for. I would say professionally, it was 20years ago when God first placed me on this musical path I walk on today. 19 years old, naive but hopeful, I stumbled onto destiny, and my life has not been able the same since.

In the year 2000, a phenomenal thing happened to me. I got signed on, with the group I was a part of, to a US-based record label. Before then, I had never even considered music to be a possibility for me, at least not full-on. All of a sudden, here I was, googly-eyed, along with my teammates, touring the world; playing festivals and concerts we could only describe and at best show pictures of.

You see, Instagram didn’t exist then. There was no Twitter or Snapchat, and Facebook had only barely begun, I believe. As a group, we needed to take the world, one person at a time (or so it seemed at the time at least), and that was what we set out to do. Funny shebi? We set out to do it because we didn’t think we couldn’t.

I look here today, and I see how far God has brought me. And I can only be thankful. Thankful because I must never take for granted, His mercies, His love, His faithfulness to me and mine.

Not everyone who sets out comes this far. And yet I know that I have only just begun! In my life, every disappointment has become a blessing, every challenge has turned into breakthrough, every limitation has been used by God to cause Him to surpass my expectations and every stone that has ever been thrown at me has turned mid-flight into an instrument of good rather than evil.

So far, God has confused for me every tongue that has ever risen against me in judgment, and He has caused even my enemies to be at peace with me. How can I not be thankful? So I’m sending my Heavenly Father a special shout-out on this special day….. Thank you, Jesus, for being so good to me!!!!!
