I remember exactly where I was a year ago: physically, mentally, spiritually… and as I take the time to reflect on the journey I have been on this past year, I cannot help but marvel at how truly awesome God is. I’ve never really been one for huge birthday celebrations. Just a few close friends, family, good music to dance to, a cute lil outfit, and chocolate cake are all I’ve ever really needed to have a good time.
Moment of honesty: I haven’t truly sat with Him in months. I’ve been so angry, so alone, so depressed, but felt so much pressure to put on a happy face. I resented Him for that. He knows my heart; knows I truly desire companionship and community yet He has me in a place of isolation.
I’d be lying if I said it doesn’t get lonely, but God has been sending constant reminders that I’m never alone. I have no idea what this year will bring. My only true request is for the strength to endure through this season and the peace and comfort of knowing that He’s got me.
