This year.... Twenty-Fourteen.... good Lord. How do I describe my feelings about it?
I see..... Pain..... And so so much struggle..... But I see growth.... Through all the tears and heartache. I see a hurricane...... And somehow..... At some point..... Finding the eye of the hurricane...... Where the wind is whipping at my hair and clothes...... But I'm standing firm..... In God..... With a look of determination on my face....
That's what I see and feel my year entails. And you know what? I'm terrified. I can't even come close to expressing how terrified I am. I know that I'm gonna grow a lot this year and I'll look back and be thankful for everything, but looking forward and seeing what I'll be walking through.... Is really scary.
I know that the only way I'll make it through is if I cling to God, but that won't take the pain away. That won't make this easy. Though I guess as a Christian, I didn't enlist for an easy life.
If I could skip this year, I would in a heart beat... But I can't. So I might as well gear up for war.
Here's to another year.
