What A Good Year
"For you make me glad by your deeds, Lord; I sing for joy at what your hands have done"
- Psalm 92:4
I've always heard that a picture is worth a thousand words. Honestly, I don't think I have words to even begin to give worth to any of these pictures. They capture priceless events and relationships.
I never saw 2014 coming. I could not have planned nor predicted this past year. These past 12 months have been months of adventure, growth, joy, and radical change. I'm a completely different person because of what God has done in my life this year.
I am filled with the inexpressible and glorious joy that 1 Peter talks about when I recall all the precious moments of 2014. They truly are things that I will treasure in my heart for years to come. I'll look upon these days and be reminded of the Lord's good and sovereign will. He knows what He's doing, even if I don't understand His ways.
I took a risk in January. I accepted an invitation. I entered into uncharted waters, trusting that God was leading me in every step. Everything changed. Looking back, I often ask myself What would my life look like had I not said yes? I can't say. What I can tell you is that the risk was worth it. I didn't lose anything. In fact, I gained so much more than I thought I would. God surprised me. He's good like that. Always.
Entering into 2015, I don't see how it could possibly compare to 2014. But, God is capable of so much more than what I limit Him to. He loves surprises and He's unpredictable. Who knows where He'll take me.
One thing I'm certain of...
God knows best. I can trust Him.
How was your 2014? (Happy New Year)
