Several weeks ago, I posted that I would be blogging again and I am pretty stoked to be back. My heart is full and my joy abundant. It has been seven months since my last post and I am happy to say I am content and at peace with where I am in my life. Now, don't get me wrong, there is always room for improvement and growth. There are circumstances that I had hoped would turn out differently BUT I am ok with them. At the end of every day there are a couple things on my prayer list that have been there for the last seven months and will remain for now. I hope to never stop longing to be closer to Christ.
The last time I posted in Sept. I posted about faith and how at times it is circumstantial. When I sat down to post tonight, I realized God's timing is yet again perfect. On the way to work this morning I was doing my make up and on the phone most of the way in (I know, not safe) BUT once I stopped and was just quiet for a moment a song I was hearing for the first time was on the radio. Kutless' What faith can do from the It is well album (i think). Powerful lyrics and for me today it kicked off my time of worship for the rest of my drive to work. The chorus in the song says, IVE SEEN DREAMS THAT MOVE MOUNTAINS HOPE THAT DOESN'T EVER END EVEN WHEN THE SKY IS FALLING. IVE SEEN MIRACLES THAT JUST HAPPEN SILENT PRAYERS GET ANSWERED. BROKEN HEARTS BECOME BRAND NEW, THATS WHAT FAITH CAN DO. The last verse says...Even if you fall sometimes, you will have the strength to rise. YES SIR is what I thought after the song was over. This was awesome and had me humbled. The song just after that was one by Sanctos Rios (sp) I just heard one verse in this song but yet again for a reason Im sure. It says...In this life I know what I've been but in His arms I know what I am. I LOVE IT! (I will touch on this soon!)
I got to work early and just sat in my car like o.k. God why are we back here? My faith is strong I believe and I feel as though I am doing well with overcoming my past. Ya know, actually I still don't know what exactly he is preparing me for currently but I am very excited to wait it out and see. Several things I do know...1) I have come leaps and bounds in 7 months and am proud of myself. Let me say I AM NOT saying I have not made mistakes or fallen, but how I have handled those things is what I am proud of. 2) My faith has grown and is more of a foundation than ever 3) God in the last two weeks has been preparing me for something that I do not know, but welcome.
I am glad to be back blogging and sharing my life with you! I can't wait to break it down and share my faith walk with you. More importantly, I can't wait for you to see through me what an AMAZING God we serve.
BRACE YOURSELVES, its good stuff coming your way :) see ya soon!
- I am first and foremost a daughter of the King. A believer in miracles. A prime example of change. I am adored and loved by the one person who will NEVER stop loving me. I am humbled and grateful. More than anything though, I am awe-struck at my relationship with Christ and honored to serve Him as my Abba Father. I have nothing to lose and everything to gain at this point in my life.
