As I look over 2015, It’s amazing what all happened this year. It was packed with so much change, so unlike 2014. My theme song for the year was ‘Dare you to Move’ and I did just that. I took some leaps that I knew that God had told me about years ago. I did and said things that I knew I needed to do even though I knew the outcome wasn’t going to be the best, but I trusted and I’m still trusting God to bring them around. I pressed into God, because I knew I couldn’t do this without him. But most importantly I moved!!! I decided that there is no time like the present, that if you don’t act on the calling that God has on your life, you will never feel complete. You will never feel whole. His purpose for my life is the only thing worth living for.
My word for the year was sacrifice, and yes I had tons of that. Some at the time really hurt some I was able to wrap my head around and adjust to, but none of them, I would take back. Because to get to where you need to be, you have to sacrifice.
Even thought this whole year has been a crazy ride the last 4 weeks have really knocked me on my butt. There are some things you are never really ready for. Some things that grab you by the throat and squeezes the air out of you. The things that even when God warns you, you still get blindsided. The things that no one can fix, that no one can comfort, that there are just no words for. But you really learn who you are in those times. Can you keep your faith? Can you believe that God is God? Can you continue to praise him in the middle? December the last month in the year, I do have to admit that it almost did me in. I almost got to the point of thinking that I couldn’t keep the faith. Instead of praying all I could do was cry, but that is praying, isn’t it? God understands even the tears of the things that bring us to our knees.
So I’m ready for 2016, I will not soon forget 2015, but I know that there are some big things coming in this new year and I’m waiting on God’s promises to be fulfilled. This will be a great year, and I will go as far as to say it will be one of the best years of my life. Yes, I believe that, I have faith in that.
