2017


Father God,
allow me to cry for the broken hearts,
listen for the heavy hearted.
love for the ones without it. impact all, and share your word.
teach me to live kingdom minded, strengthened in your word.
teach me to remain faithful and live to fulfill your plans.
allow me to be a light in the darkness, remind me daily of your sovereign grace.
change my heart and mind from focusing on things that are not from you.
fix my brokenness, that I no longer hold onto hurt from people around me.
Father, take away any stubbornness, anger, or anxiety that I hold.
speak to me this year..
give me clarity for the things I’m lost in,
open my eyes to see what is needed for change so I may grow in your presence.
allow me to be selfless to what you have in store.
less of me, and more of you, Father God.
Amen.

let this be my hearts cry for year 2017.

The Unknown

Three weeks ago, I became a college graduate..and the questions began..

“So now that you’re done with school, are you looking to get married? What’s next for you? Do you have plans to return to school? A job lined up yet?”

So many questions that have been asked and I’ve been stuck in the emotional mess of overwhelming fear and uncertainty. But I’ve come to realize that not knowing what’s next isn’t exactly wrong.

It’s okay, actually. My cousin said something to me on graduation night that really stuck with me, “Always have the mindset that the older you get, the more little you know. There is always room for improvements.” He was so right. I’m still young…The world is so big, and I’m just a small fish in it.

The unknown of what’s next is scary, but God reminds me that He will direct my future..

There is a calm in the unknown. It’s the realization that although as a planner, this is difficult, this is needed.

The unknown is for growth, to keep me on my feet.

The unknown is living in the moment; taking it all in and enjoying life.

The unknown is relief in knowing your problems are being placed in Gods hands.

The bible says ‘Fear Not’ 365 times, one for each day of the year. He didn’t intend for us to spend our days preoccupied with anxiety.

Maybe this unknown is meant for a change in heart rather than the situations.

There is a sense of peace in the unknown..

believe in His plan.
