I have this fear of: could it get any better than this? Is all gonna go down hill from here? This feels like the best, at least it has been the best.
But God, being the great God He is, proved me wrong.
When it was time for me to graduate high school I was SO scared to move on because my high school experience was absolutely amazing. It was the best (at that point), and my question was: could college beat this?
I mean, I guess it’s a reasonable fear of the unknown.
However!! How EVAAA.. College son..
God really showed up and proved to me it only gets better. I can boldly say my first semester experience was point blank bomb, all the downs (barely any) were ups in disguise!! Like really amazing.
God placed me in this school because I trusted in Him and really listened and followed the path He set out for me.
So now.. I don’t even have the right to be hopeless.
But I’m human, so it crossed my mind again this morning: could life get better? 2014 was too good to be true, how could 2015 be any better? But BAM, my answer:
God allowed me to remember that 2014 started off shaky (it was a spill over of 2013), but that was just the devil trying to put me down so I wouldn’t see the dope year God was building me up for.
It started with MRI & MRA scans.
This time last year, I almost didn’t want to live to see another day. Anxiety, fear, pain, worry and near depression.
December 31st 2013, I had prayed for 2014 to be good to me, but it didn’t seem possible, even up until April 2014
What I didn’t realize was God REALLY had me all figured out, I just couldn’t trust and see past my circumstances. I didn’t expect anything good to come out of such a horrible period of life.
But God saw my heart. He knew enough was ENOUGH.
He knew my soul.
Like prince charming, he would come and sweep me of my dusty crusty feet! He wiped my tears!!
It got better.
So much better. Anxiety, fear, pain, worry and near depression turned into an OVERFLOW OF HAPPINESS.
as the year progressed.
An unfathomable kind of better.
It went from hopelessness to scholarships, healing, love, success, another internship, starting this blog, growth, travel, etc etc.
(Quick shout out to David and Bri❤️)
After all God has done for me?! I’m soooo hopeful and excited for 2015; stuck on the promise that He really has a plan for me. Not only that, a GOOD plan. Therefore, that only guarantees me, it’s going to get better. There’s no way out of it. It done! It is finished!!
So i’ll leave you all with this:
Even if you had a bad year (by your standards), TRUST that the best is yet to come. The devil may be trying to cloud that picture of possible goodness/greatness, but BELIEVE ME, it’s there. You may not see it now, but when you get there, and that picture becomes clearer, you’d be in your room balling crying because of how faithful God is, has been and will continue to be!
Our God isn’t one that would lie. He has PROMISED us certain things. He LOVES us (real love, 1 Corinthians 13 kinda love)!! Love is PATIENT. He was so patient with me, He waited on me through all my sin. He will be patient with you, so be patient with him. (Did I emphasize patience enough?)
Stay strong. It only gets better. ❤ ❤
Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. (Matthew 6:33)
And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them. (Romans 8:28)
“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?” (Matthew 6:25)
For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland. (Isaiah 43:19 NLT)
Happy New Year!!!
