It's been a while since I've written on this blog. And it's not because I haven't wanted to, I just felt burnt out. But the Holy Spirit has been leading me to start writing again.
This blog isn't for me, but for whoever I'm able to encourage, help or entertain. The point is to make a positive impact in any way I can. I just want to do my part for Christ. I think there's so much negativity in the world, that it can sometimes be hard to see the positives and the beauty of life.
We get so encumbered by the work we do, education, and our obligations that when we look back on the day, week, or month, we forget the moments of joy and beauty and just see the never-ending work we've had to do.
It's one of the reasons I'm grateful for God, because when I start my day, I get to thank God for the things He's been doing in my life. So, I remember God's kindness, I remember the moments when I felt tired and I could turn to God for strength. I remember the family God has given to me, the friends I have, and the good things I enjoy because of God.
So when people ask me how I've been, I can genuinely say I've been happy and grateful. Even at this very moment, I'm thinking back on the goodness of God, my growth, the lessons I've learned, my health, and my change in perspective, and I can't help but be grateful.
So life update? I've grown, I'm stronger, I'm better and I'm extremely grateful for God. He's been so faithful and He's never let me fail, He's shown up for me over, and over again. I'm still growing, learning and still on my journey. So, I'm also grateful that my journey hasn't ended.
So, when you look back on your life, your month, your week, your day, don't see it as one huge rolling stone, instead, break down the moments and focus on the good things and beautiful things you've had the grace to experience. Because they exist.
As always, I love you and God most definitely loves you more.
