Thankfulness & God's Faithfulness

I'm so very thankful for this year.  God has always been so faithful to me.  He's protected me, loved me, and given my joy in hard times.  I remember this time last year, I did not want to celebrate any Holidays.  I did not want to celebrate Thanksgiving or Christmas.  I had a heart that wasn't ready to move on or let go.  I had a stubborn heart, one that wasn't willing to listen or heal.  I had a broken heart, one that was not allowing me to be thankful for yet another year.  Even then God provided ways for me to heal and the space I needed, in providing opportunities to stay home for Thanksgiving and to be traveling all through Christmas and New Years.  God was so good to me.  Today I look back and think of just how far God has taken me.  I'm thankful He protected me from a very bad situation and gave me healing in that.  I'm thankful He took me far away from two really hard circumstances and allowed me to start over.  I look back over this last year and the h

2020 Update

So it's been a while and a lot has changed.  Moving.  Heart break.  More heart break.  What a year in a half its been.  It's probably been more like two years at this point.  Life took a crazy ride.  An up and down adventure.  Filled with lots and lots of tears.  Lots of wounds, opened and opened again. Lost friends.  Broken trusts.  It's moved me across the country.  To a new place.  A new home.  A new culture, people and area.  So many trees.  Weather changes.  Lots and lots of rain and cloudy days.  More free time.  More time to read and study.  Time to heal from the hurt and work through areas I've really struggled in.  Time to grow in trust as I work through a change in life, a change in everything I once new.  Time to get to know new people and a new culture.
Learning to trust the Lord is hard.  Learning to fight the fear and anxiety of life all around you is a constant battle.  You often have to surrender your hopes, dreams, and desires to Him.  You have to acknowledge the pride in your heart and hold everything with an open hand as you learn to trust that the Lord has a perfect plan for your life.  Whether thats what you want or not.  Remember Romans 8, that God is good.  He is always good and sovereign.  Even if it's hard and it hurts.  He's growing us and sanctifying us.  Letting go is hard.  But we have to trust the Lord.  I want to control so many things and I want to have a perfect and clear path for my life and right now that's not happening and I'm learning to let and go and trust the Lord has perfect plan right where He has me and is growing me and sanctifying in so many ways that, in a few years, I hope can look back and thank the Lord for this season of waiting.
