Isn’t It funny that the start of a new year makes people feel like it’s a fresh start? The “first page of a 356 (or in this years case 366)page book”.
I have been doing some reflecting upon my life and more importantly, my self these past few weeks.
This last year was a roller coaster of emotions for me. I graduated high school-and my best and closest friend-who is more aptly described as a sister-was able to come up from the States, and yet on the very same day as Grad-a joyous and jubilant time-I was hurting so bad because my Omma wasn’t there to watch me walk the stage in my absolutely gorgeous dress!! Then the oh, so many fights that come along with disagreeing school mates, that eventually led to the burning of many bridges-not by my choosing.
you may wonder why I posted the above photo as my graphic for this post. Well, I like to see it as this; I am walking forward into the unknown. Through tall grass and fallen, broken trees and brush, I am making my way through this thing called life. More importantly, I am walking out from the forest into the clearing where I don’t have to worry about tripping and falling every time I take a step. Yes, I’ll still trip and stumble, but I believe that this year is a year of BREAKTHROUGH!
So, I just want to take a minute to pray that upon each and every one of you. Lord I pray you will look upon each and everyone of us. That you will provide breakthrough after breakthrough. That you will bless you beyond what we think possible. And that you will provide answers to our unanswered prayers and that you will help us accept whatever the answer may be. Father, Be with us this year. Guide us. Lead us where we are to go and give us the courage to take the step out into the unknown with you. Let us make YOU our main focus and priority and anything that may come after, let us be thankful for it. Amen
Love you all and thank you for your support this nearly 3 years!!!
