I haven't done my recap of 2015 yet! I know it is a little late since it is almost march!! What?!!! Time is just flying by! Last year was definitely a challenging one. It was a year of discoveries and seeing each member of my family differently. By differently I mean I did not want to change them to fit a perfect mold of what I have in my head. Each one of them is so unique. Each one of them can be very strong willed and we had many battles of wills. These are battles where no one really won. Instead I learned to take my fights to God and trust that it would all work out. I now know what it means to really pray and to take my time. I learned that God sends angels into your lives. I didn't know I would meet a particular group of woman this year that would be just what I needed. I could confide in them and they gave me strength and encouragement. I would be writing a very different story if it weren't for these woman. I have seen tender mercies. I really have! Things are still difficult but I have hope and I have seen changes in myself and my family. I know now that I can be courageous and strong when all I feel like doing is giving up. Yes, even when all seems like it falling apart and I couldn't bear another minute. I have relied on so many scriptures but Helaman 5:12 is one of my favorites!
"And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the arock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your bfoundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty cstorm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall."
I will not fall if I rely o him. At times I may fall apart but the Savior is right there to pick up the pieces. I didn't know it but looking back at each of my posts last year, it was me trying to make sense of the storm going on in my heart and mind. I love blogging! Thanks for being on this journey with me!
