It’s been a While…
…more than just a few months and the world is changing. I’m changing. Life is pushing forward. In the past few months, I’ve experienced loss, love and growth. People tell you “Happy Birthday” every year, but I think life would be a lot better if they dropped some wisdom on you for your special day. I realized a lot while I have been gone. I’ll share a few:
- Loss doesn’t always occur when someone is dead and sometimes that form of loss can hurt more than a death. My aunt passed away a few months ago… she knew her time was near but kept it to herself. She didn’t want others to suffer with her. She is at peace. I lost a really close friend. She’s still alive and I feel re-born.
- Growth is something that we have to work on every single day. There’s so much happening in the world. You have to watch what information you expose yourself to and how you view yourself all while continuing to build your character.
- The world is changing. I’m celebrating my 24th birthday in the middle of a pandemic. I have been inside for over 30 days. Ironically, through this time, I have become so close to my family and more importantly – Jesus.
- Sometimes I forget how far I’ve come and I forget to look at the big picture. I believe if you are a true believer in Christ, you catch subtle hints of his presence and Jesus re-grounds you at your lowest and lifts you to your highest.
This is the first year of my life where I feel like I’m actually making an effort to read the Bible. I’m at peace with the past. This blog post alone was so healing. I’m in a good place.
