One of my goals for 2020 is to say YES to whatever the Lord asks of me without hesitation! .
This picture, this excitement, this joy, this happiness is proof that God knows my heart better than i ever will! I would have never, EVER said that I would be here now, doing this! But God led me where He needed me, where I needed to be, and while I fought really hard for a while, i finally allowed God to do what He does best! He has slowly started to show me my purpose, the purpose for which He created me. I don’t know what all that purpose will entail, but i know that i will trust Him and pour my heart into all those around me knowing that He has brought me to this place, on this journey, wayyyyy outside of my comfort zone! .
So today, I’m just really thankful for a God who loves me enough to pursue me and guide me to becoming a person I honestly never thought I could be. I’m thankful for that kind of love. And I’m thankful for the people He brought me to that pour into my life and make me better, stronger, kinder. I’m thankful that I get to serve others with the hope of showing the love of Christ. .
I’m also really thankful for my team that is growing, the excitement of all the things that are about to happen, and the people who He has led to be part of it recently! .
And for the first time in a long time, I’m thankful for this body that God gave me and the second chance to show it love instead of hate. I’m thankful to be stronger than I’ve ever been - physically and mentally. I’m thankful that get my body and mind and heart are all working towards the same goal, instead of tearing myself apart from all aspects. .
So, if you haven’t already today, take a second to be thankful for whatever is in your life that is good today. Life may not be great, but there is something GOOD in every single day - we just have to look for it.
