What comes next GOD only knows...but here it goes:)

I don't think I can sleep until I get this off my chest...

This song brings me to tears...I'm so thankful that my past mistakes do not have to define who I am now & that I HAVE been remade...

 Do you ever take the time to think about all the good in life? I don't do it nearly enough. I spend so much time thinking of all that is or might go wrong that I forget to slow down & just breatheeee:)

The ultimate comfort!

 I am so thankful for ALL of the things God has done for me even if some of those things were difficult & confusing at the time.
I think that's important to remember...just because we may feel like whatever hardship we're going through will never end, we have to remember that it's all a part of something so much more than us! Isn't that a wonderful feeling?! Knowing that no matter how rough the seas (our lives) are that there is someone there that can make them calm if we have faith in Him? It might not always happen in the way or in the time, that we think is best but it will happen exactly as it should.

Seriously, what good is a chance not taken?

 Anthony & I are so blessed with this new job oppurtunity & I fully believe that this is all a part of His plan. I pray about it daily & at first I fought it, I was too afraid. However, I decided to give it all to God because I knew it was more than I could ever handle on my own & He has truely "made our paths straight."

 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and shun evil. Proverbs 3:5-7

That verse has always been one of my favorites & was the very first verse I really memorized, remembering it has helped get me through a lot of hard times but it's never meant as much to me as it does now. Maybe I'm just older & more willing to submit myself to the Lord & His plan than I was before...I don't know. I do know that whatever happens, will happen...and as long as we follow His direction, it will be right & it will be good.

“You, Lord, are forgiving and good, abounding in love to all who call to you.” - Psalm 86:5

 Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good;
   his love endures forever. -Psalm 118:1

I hope you took the time to listen to these songs:) The words are so incredibly powerful...each one speaks to me in a different way.
I also hope that whatever trials or hardships you're going through right now, you will give them all up...surrender FULLY to God and His unwaivering, unconditional love. He can handle it:) Don't forget to share the good times with Him too though!!! 

Have a blessed week!
