GeeZ! Hasn't this year flown by!!!!!! I feel like it was just the beginning of 2018! Time waits for no one!
Although it seems as though this year just began, I tell you I have learned a lot! I've experienced joy, love, peace, shock, sadness, forgiveness, happiness and many other things. At the beginning of this year, like many others, I had my list of things to speak into existence. But I've learned everything I speak into existence isn't necessarily supposed to be. Sometimes I felt as though I knew God's will! Ha!! Isn't that funny!?!? I've learned that I know very little instead lol. We can't even begin to predict what the next hour or day will bring, but I've learned all I can do is do my best to remain rooted in Christ. I've learned to be present more, as we only have one life that is steadily fleeing. I've learned that I will experience heartbreak when I step outside of my comfort zone and love others. I've learned that we all have a cross or at some point will have to carry a cross, whether it's financial, sickness, or losing a loved one. But I learned we can still rejoice and say "Yet will I trust the Lord." (Job 13:15). I'm realizing that this life is so so short. All I can do is trust God and do my best to live out the fruits of the spirit (Joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control Galatians 5:22-23). I've learned to love others, do my best to forgive as God has endlessly forgiven me, take better care of my body and simply be thankful for my health and portion. Without health, there is little that we can do but with my health, I can work hard to gain where I lack whether it is financial or with fitness. Life is simply a journey back to heaven. Trust God, love others, forgive, have faith, accept change, take care of yourself, create more, embrace simplicity, and have fun as you enjoy the ride!
