Sometimes things happen and you can’t be quite sure why, but they do. They seem like they could topple you over in one swift motion, but you only kind of sway. Well, that’s kind of how I felt for the last two years. It seemed as though it was one thing after another and I never saw an escape.
Things really seem to be turning around though and I can say, without any doubt, that it’s because of the grace that God has shown me. This year has been a good one. It’s been filled with beautiful people and crazy blessings that I can’t even name. It seriously overwhelms me. I have been trying to make it a routine to continuously thank Him, because without Him none of this would be possible. Seeking God in my day to day is something I hope to make routine. Sometimes I get caught up and think I can put my faith on hold, but there’s no pause button for that kind of thing. The reel keeps on spinning.
I never want to take for granted the life that I have right now – this I know for sure. It can be gone in an instant. And I don’t mean dying (although that totally is something that could happen to anyone), but I’m talking about the fact that things change. People change. Places change. And circumstances change. The things that make this moment the way it is may not be around for tomorrow. Food for thought.
