Out With The Old....

It has been quite a year. It's kind of hard to take it all in, but I do like to spend a few moments reflecting back.

We've had joys and tears and hopes and struggles. It has been a good year. There has been much growth and opportunities for the same.

Sometimes it feels as if the old skin is too tight, and as I grow and change, it peels away. It's not always comfortable, and I sometimes miss the things left behind. But as I stretch and grow into these new opportunities, I soon forget what it was that I clung to so tightly.

My heart and my beliefs have been sifted through, and some pieces that do not belong, He has removed. It will be an ongoing process, I know. For that I am grateful.

He is changing me. Little by little. Experience by experience.

And through it all, He is there. His love never ceases and His mercies never come to an end. Morning by morning, I am reminded of this.

Great is Thy Faithfulness, Lord unto me.

Lamentations 3:22-24
22The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;his mercies never come to an end;23 they are new every morning;great is your faithfulness.24 “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,“therefore I will hope in him.”
