🎉HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!!🎉
Can you believe it’s 2019 already?!
To be honest………I am both relieved and saddened to see 2018 go. 2018 was a year of CHANGE for me.
I got a new job. Relocated to a new building. Got my own first apartment. Gave away my car (someday I will share that testimony with you!). Lost my little sister……..
Good times….and worse times.
But above it all I realized just how much more I needed God………
In the month of September 2018 my little sister passed away. And my world crumbled with it. Just the week before everything happened, I had finally gotten my first apartment and was happily buying everything for it. We were so excited!
And then well………it wasn’t exciting anymore. How could I leave home NOW? At a time like this?!!
I couldn’t bring myself to go through with it.
But 2 days after her death, God spoke to me and told me I still had to go. The next day. Even though I was grieving and in pain!
😔 So………I did it.
And God gave me this inexplicable peace during that week to help me get through all of the packing and preparations. It was amazing how strong I was able to be!
It’s incredible how God works…..😏
I was in this new apartment – new bed, new couch, new life! But what I didn’t know was that God also was working in me…….a new walk with Him.
In the months leading up to the end of 2018 I have come to the revelation of who God really is and just how much He loves me. And I am still learning!
While alone in this new place, God began to show me the truth – about me. About how prideful I was, and how much I held on to grudges and hurtful words spoken to me. I was shook!
ME?? YOU SURE?! 😳
I was messed up and in desperate need of a Savior. I was hurt and broken. And angry. And bitter. And lacked love – not because I didn’t have loving people around me. But because I didn’t know how to accept their love!
Sigh…….God showed me the truth. And it was ugly.
So for this new year of 2019, I choose to continue this journey that God has me on. I plan to lighten up and not be religious. I plan to LIVE and have fun! Learn to be spontaneous. And be myself.
Whatever your journey I encourage you to choose to follow the path that God has for you. You may be amazed at where it leads. 😉
