In the spirit of transparency I will share this with you.
This year has been full of really high highs and super lows. I jumped out of the boat and landed in rough water. I left my job to start a business and at times felt as if I was sinking. Thankfully, I didn’t stop kicking so I didn’t drown. There were months when I felt as if I was simply treading water. However, as I look back I now know that the process was necessary. It definitely increased my faith in God and also myself.
Many people were sent by God to assist me in ways that they may not even know helped. I am forever grateful. My family survived one of the most challenging years yet and is stronger. I saw how faithful God is when He answered a specific prayer on the last day of a 21day fast. I will forever praise and glorify God for His mighty acts! I know some will say that I did the work so I should be proud. Yes , I did the work and yes I am proud of myself for not giving up but God provided me with the strength to endure. On days when I felt like quitting and throwing in the towel I sought the Lord and He heard me. He encouraged me with His word and then I got up off the floor and continued to fight the good fight. So, 2018 took me through it…I pray that 2019 is kinder. However, if it’s not then I am not afraid because I have faith that God will be right there with me.
