Hey friends, how are you today? How was your week? Phew! The past few weeks have been quite challenging, I must admit. Challenging, interesting, different, just a few words to describe this place of life. I feel as if I am trying to hold on to water with my hands. Have you ever felt that way? My life has taken on this lack of control and every time I think I have it together, control slips through my fingers. I suspect the Lord is telling me something, but I keep missing the point! Perhaps you can help a sister out?
Control… Lord, how I love that word! But how very little I have over the happenings of life! After every incident in my life, I say to the Lord, “I trust, You, Lord”, but at the onset of the next upheaval, I realize that trust in the Lord is a constant work in progress, especially when ‘control’ is your middle name. Help me, Lord with these new normals in my life.
With that in mind, I’ve decided to take a guilt-free month off from the blogosphere. This past month I have been trying to hang on to my routine, but the harder I try, the more problems I create. You know by now, I HATE changes, but I do know that changes are important to my spiritual well-being. Changes are good for me and at the end of each change, I am thankful. But the Lord knows I struggle every bit of the way throughout the process of change. I always want to go back to what was comfortable; sounds familiar?
As I sit here and write, I realize how much I’ve missed. I miss reading your posts and I miss you all and I want to take this opportunity to say ‘THANK YOU!! Thank you for the comments and the shares and the likes and for all the encouragement throughout the past year. Thank you, thank you! May the Lord truly bless you abundantly.
Anyway, the winner of the giveaway is someone I think of as a beautiful friend. I believe that if we were to meet, we would discover a multitude of similarities between us and although we’ve never met, I do consider her my friend. To Alicia of ForHisPurpose; if you are not already a follower of her blog, please do so, you will not be disappointed.
Merry Christmas and a fabulous new year to you.
