Thirty Eight: Growth
First off, I would like to apologize for not writing or posting pictures as much as I used to. I have been very busy this past month and also uninspired. I hope you will understand.
I can't believe there are only four more days in this semester. I still feel as though summer just ended and I was running around in shorts and bright colored nail polish. I have learned so much since then and I can very well say that I am a different person than I was even at the beginning of this semester.
If you have been following me for a while, you should know that I am on a "dating fast" and it definitely has been a struggle and many challenges have come my way. So much so that I considered not doing it anymore, but God is showing me more and more that He will bless me if I follow His direction. This year was all about following in God's direction and this has been most challenging to let myself walk my talk. Everything that I read is giving me assurance of my choice and I know that I am doing the right thing.
"So after you have suffered a little while, He will restore, support, and strengthen you and He will place you on a firm foundation." - 1 Peter 5:10
I will hold onto His promises and I will go into this necessary season of my life with confidence and boldness. I will and can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. Through this time of growing, changing, and learning, I truly believe that I will learn the secret of being content in every situation.
What are some of the things that you have learned since this summer? How have you changed?
If you answer in my comments box, I will give you a shout out on my blog and also on my twitter.
