I hope everyone had an amazing Christmas! I know my family and I did. It was loud, crazy and super fun.
And now I sit at my laptop, staring at a blank screen that matches my brain.
It is rare for me not to have the words flow for a blog post; my mind is drawing a blank on what to write.
But I realized that this will be my last blog post of 2019, and now that got me thinking.
This year has been quite the year for me; I learned valuable lessons, made new friends, and took a leap of faith by starting this blog.
This year has not been easy, there were quite a few bumps and hiccups, some I would rather forget, but all gave me a lesson to learn.
And I know in the new year, there will be new lessons to learn. I also know that 2020 will bring changes, some exciting and some that I look to with trepidation. But with those feelings of unease, comes a Bible verse that God keeps bringing to my mind.
It is the last part of the verse that has been speaking to me. God is in heaven and you on earth…God is in heaven looking over me and He has every moment of my life planned out, He can see and knows everything.
I am on earth, I cannot see or know everything, it is not my place to see or know everything, therefore why worry? Why be constantly looking ahead and wondering what might happen?
The peace that I get from this verse is that God is in heaven I am on earth. Therefore, I do not have to worry or wonder how we will handle unknown situations, God is already there. All I have to do is live for today and trust God will give me grace when the changes happen.
It is way easier to say you are going to let go and rely fully on God and not worry, trust me I know.
But I would rather have peace, trust, and grace, then to be sick and worry.
This year will bring challenges and changes, but I pray that through God’s grace, I and my family will get through it.
Well, I guess the words came after all…only took all day!
Merry Christmas again, and Happy New Year!!
