Achievements, Transitions, Frustrations – oh my
A time of more questions than answers
Having to intentionally learn how to renew my mind
Removing words from my vocabulary like
Fearful and Why
Moving swiftly and prayerfully, yet never with caution
Dear friendships lost,
While others grow stronger
Figuring out how to take shape in this new space
Scripture, coming to life
As I now live what I’ve heard preached
For years hearing the same thing
Never knowing what they mean
Understanding the sentiment of testimonies told
Now I empathize having tasted fire, but nowhere near gold
“He’s never failed me yet”
It’s what the elders say
Knowing this for yourself will pull you out of your darkest days
Dreams and prayers realized, but never meeting expectations
Most are exceeded while others are currently under construction
Learning that 90% of what stops us is what stares back in the mirror
Learn to move past that and the possibilities become clearer
Knowing and Doing, are two completely separate things
The only things worth doing are those that impact eternity
This is simply a prelude to the multitude of things I’ve come to realize
And the smallest glimpse of what is to come of this life
If there’s one thing I hold onto-
It’s that there is power in pure and honest gratitude.
Being grateful can cure a multitude of the questions or worries in one’s mind.
Gratefulness isn’t complacency, and learning to be truly grateful is a gift.
I am grateful for every moment in the past 23 years, 364 days, 23 hours, and 59 mins because they have led me to here, and in just a few seconds begins
My 24th year.
