2020. A year that brought fear, anxiety, loss and chaos to most of our lives. It will go down in the history books as one of the worst our nation & world has ever seen.
But what I hope is recorded is that we persevered. We hoped. We came closer together- I know I did.
This year made me truly put my trust in God and recognize that He is above it all, always. 2020 wasn’t a surprise to Him. It didn’t make Him rethink His plans. No- He knew every bit of the details & events that unfolded this year. Some may ask why He would allow that to happen, and that’s a valid question, but I rest in knowing that everything happens for a reason. Only He knows the reason why & sometimes we don’t have the answer until we’re with Him in heaven.
For me personally, this year stretched me & grew me in ways that I would’ve never expected. It made me realize that as much as I want to control outcomes, situations, or mindsets, I simply can’t. It’s an uncomfortable feeling but it’s also freeing. I don’t want to be in control. I would rather leave that in the hands of my God who loves me, protects me and cherishes me. Thank God He is in control!
“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6
May 2021 bring us joy, growth, health, love & unity. ✨
