Happy New Year! Wow, I cannot believe it’s already 2023. I mean, seriously, where did 2022 run off to?
2022 for me was definitely a crazy year, it was full of so many ups and downs, but most importantly, growth! I have been dealing with so many health issues, tests, unknowns, undiagnosed situations… and so much more! Yet, in the midst of it all, I have learned so much about what trusting God is really about. He has shown me that He is here, He loves me, He sees me, He is taking care of me, and everything in between!
When 2022 began God gave me a verse, years past I had never gotten a “verse of the year” from the Lord. But 2022 was so different, and I knew Him personally (and still do). So this is the verse i want to continue to share, and i hope it touches you in the way that it did to me:
Matthew 6:34 Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
Now, at the beginning of the year I was questioning why God would put that verse on my heart/mind. However, instead of letting the verse pass through my mind, I got out a paper and a pen to write it down and put it on my wall. I still have it on my wall to this day!
When May came around my health issues began. I had always dealt with this, but it got much worse, and started to affect me on a daily basis. When the beginning of June came around God reminded me (again!) of that verse. I knew right then and there why I needed it. That verse helped me, and is still helping me get through the toughest season I have ever had to deal with.
I have been praying for healing. I have been putting my trust in God, and not worrying about what may happen to me. Just trusting God with tomorrow, my health, my tics, my life! God’s got this!
2022 was difficult, but I grew so much! God showed me who He is! Not only that, but my boyfriend and I have grown closer to each other through growing closer to God, and pushing through till’ the end of this tough season. I just want to say, thank you! Thank you to God, my family, my friends, my boyfriend, and everyone in my life! Thank you for not leaving me, for encouraging me everyday to chase after my Father in Heaven. Thank you for always being there to talk, and for just being in my life! God really has blessed me with such an amazing and loving community! And thank you personally to everyone who follows my blog, for just sticking around to see my walk with God grow!
This year God gave me my calling, to write about Him, to share encouraging words through this, to make videos sharing what I am learning, and really just reaching people for the Kingdom of God!
However 2022 was for you, I pray that you had a great one! I pray you saw God in the days that came throughout 2022, and through every season you encountered Him, both in the good and hard.
God loves you! 2023 will be a great year, give it to God! Whatever happens, wherever it takes you, remember, God is in control. He sees you. He is guiding you. He is with you!
Happy New Year, and I am praying for you all!
