365 Days

Tomorrow marks the one year mark since my last day at my previous job . As I left campus that day I was hopeful , unsure , grateful , and exhausted . The 365 days that have followed  have been filled with those same emotions along with many others . I am grateful that the Lord allowed me what I needed to follow His voice and the path He had for me . Though I have been on this new adventure for 365 days, most of them I have felt as though I'm traveling with a blind fold on . There have been some of the darkest days I've known along with some of the most enlightening . I've recieved critisism , some unwanted advice and a little encouragement concerning my choices to take this path . Looking back AND looking forward I have NO DOUBT it was the right path for me at this time .

While I'm still in the process of this "new" adventure here are a few things I've learned so far......you have to follow the Lords plan for YOU, more times that not it's gonna seem crazy to everyone else . That's part of what makes it so exciting, knowing that He cares so specifically for us as individuals. HE WILL PROVIDE , there hasn't been a moment in the last 365 days where I had to be concerned with would I have "enough" . Sometimes it was last minute or in a very unexpected way , but He ALWAYS provided for me and still continues to . If He asks you to rest, then do so , He see's much further than you do into the future, there's no tellin' what's comin' your way . Trust Him with your past, present and future . It is totally easier said than done , but it's a wondeful feeling to rest in knowing that He is caring for your every need . Those needs you are aware of and even those you aren't .

In the past 365 days the Lord has provided for my needs and even some wants, rest , fellowship , perspective , and some healing . He has allowed me a new job with new prospects for my future that I would've NEVER considered for myself . He's reminded me of how blessed I am to have the friends & family that I do . While I believe the adventure has truly just begun I am SO HAPPY to look back at the last 365 days and KNOW that my God was and still is in control . I am looking forward to whatever the next 366 (it's a leap year) hold for me . I have no doubt that He will continue to provide for me , grow me and teach me . I mean, most of life is a learning moment, right ?! I pray I stay faithful in my times with Him so that I can reflect back to others all the good that He has done....and continues to do in my life .


Psalm 136:1
Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever

Deuteronomy 31:8
The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged

Matthew 6:34
Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself.

Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Matthew 6:25
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 important than food, and the body more important than clothes?
