Looking Back

Sunday, January 1, 2012

A sign that hung on my door my Freshman year of college. I love the words to this song. It truly was how I felt, and the last line is the prayer of my heart right now as I am expecting God's best this next season of my life.

My planner from my Senior year of High School, full of quotes and verses. Going back through and reading each one reminded me of just how much God has done for me. Just as He was faithful then, In 2012, He will continue to be faithful.

A trinket from my Best Friend Mary I got in High School, each time I look at this I am reminded of the verse that says "With God, All things are possible." For every mountain I face this next year, everything that in my mind seems impossible, God knows what His perfect plan is, and with Him, NOTHING is impossible.

Since High School, this has been on the back of my door, it doesn't look like much, but I've looked at this so many times to remind me of God's promises during some hard moments in my life. I am reminded that I am never walking alone even though things seems uncertain, God is God, and I can rest in His promises.

A coffee cup my Youth Pastor gave me during one of the hardest seasons of my life. I love the words and have kept it ever since. These are defining moments in my life, and I am preparing for new adventures, but fear does not have to be a part of it, as Jeremiah 29:11 has promised me a future.

      This poem is one called "The Savior's Words" and I loved to read this, it always made me think, and it still does. Specifically for this season of my life "If you knew all, how would you know that I will answer your questions? If you had all power, then how would you learn to depend on Me?" During this season of anticipation, uncertainty, and new challenges, I pray that I will be reminded of this poem and God's power in every situation. I am putting my trust in Him and I pray that I will completely depend on Him.                               

I enjoyed going back through some of my favorite things that may seem small, old, or worn out, but each of these things had such special meaning for me during different seasons of my life, and after looking back through them tonight I am reminded of some of places specifically that God has brought me from. For everything that is ahead of me in 2012, may I hold onto these truths, and may my faith be that much stronger for each step He has brought me.

I do not want to be anxious about what is ahead but instead I want to live out what Proverbs talks about when it says " Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways, acknowledge Him, and He will direct your path straight."(Proverbs 3:5-6)

Expecting God's best in this coming season....
