I’ve been slacking, I know. I’m not going to keep making promises, but I promise I will write more. The writing may take a different shape and may hit some different topics but I’ll write more.
In spite of me lying about my writing consistency one thing you can always count on is a reflection on my date of birth.
I entered into my day in worship. I was driving from a friends house and decided that the best way to start my personal new year was by worshiping. Music is one of my favorite ways to connect with God and so as the clock transitioned from 11:59 to 12:00 I was driving with all the windows down singing loud and praising and being grateful for a new year.
So I’ve been doing my lists but I haven’t been sharing but today I will because…
It’s Friday & My Birthday…
1. Instead of a normal list this week I’m going to share my lessons from the past 365 days.
2. It’s ok to be selfish. You can’t pour from an empty vessel. Fill yourself up first and then you can give you others… only if you want.
3. It’s ok to be vulnerable. You may get hurt at times and you may not. The only way to really get the most out of life is to experience it.
4. There is a blessing in letting go. You may think something is too great and too big to let go, but sometimes the bigger blessing comes when you release the things you know deep down inside aren’t good for you.
5. Philippians 4:6-7 (CEV) Don’t worry about anything, but pray about everything. With thankful hearts offer up your prayers and requests to God.Then, because you belong to Christ Jesus, God will bless you with peace that no one can completely understand. And this peace will control the way you think and feel.
6. As much as I complain about writing these lists I know there is purpose in them. I’m just happy yall read and let me pour out my thoughts.
7. My support system is great. I get a little misty eyed when I think about how great my friends and family are. From pep talks, to lectures, to pushing me to follow dreams, to laughs, to encouraging me to walk in purpose, to road trips across the desert, to making me buy shoes, to texts, to food excursions, to letting me be your children’s godparents, to praying for me when I didn’t even know. I love y’all.
