You know that feeling when you wake from a long, restless sleep? I feel as if that's what I've just awoken from. I've been in a restless, thrashing sleep for months now. It's as if I've been having one of those dreams where you're completely aware, but you still can't do anything to stop what's happening.
Well, God used a dear friend to shake me awake yesterday and things have only gotten better since.
I feel... Incredible. I feel like me again. Except this me is smarter, happier, and much more focused and reliant on God.
I've been trying to walk on the water to Jesus for a couple months now, but before I was too distressed by the waves around me. I was so scared. But now, the waves are no longer my concern. They're in God's hands, so I can focus on walking to my Jesus :).
Y'all, I'm so happy. So so happy. I don't know how to put it into words. I'm just excited about my life. I'm full of faith and hope and it's simply the best feeling in the world!
I know that trials will come. I'll get angry and sad and everything else, but now I know I don't have to deal with it on my own. God's got it for me :).
If you're carrying burdens today, fix your eyes on Jesus, let Him carry your burdens, and just... Talk to Him. He's an amazing listener.
