I haven’t posted on here in forever. Really, I’ve been contemplating whether or not I’m going to continue with the blog. But as 2014 came to a close and 2015 begins, I’ve had one major thought in my head and thought if this is my last post, I should share it.
If you’ve followed this blog at all over the past two years, you know the waters have been choppy. I think I can easily say while times were hard in 2013, 2014 really brought the pain. And I kept thinking “it can only go up from here” or “tough it out and things will get easier.” While, I’m not saying that 2015 won’t be easier or be “an up year,” God is teaching me that life might not get easier (try selling that one in a greeting card, ha!)… BUT He is faithful. Despite all of the hard times this past year, God has shown me that he is faithful. Sometimes in big and tangible ways like when I prayed that God would remind me that he didn’t give me a spirit of fear and then this showed up in my devotional the next morning.
I am not sure what 2015 will hold for me. Maybe 2015 will be full of happy moments (and don’t get me wrong, I hope for that kind of 2015), but if 2015 isn’t easier I know that God is faithful. And while he didn’t promise me an easy life, he has promised me a better life with him on earth and eventually in heaven. That is a promise worth clinging to.
