2017…what a year!
I’ve never felt
I mean really…
U N C O M F O R T A B L E 🧐Let’s look back at the beginning of the year:
- Graduated from college! Post-Grad life begins #BlackAndEducated👩🏽🎓
- I started my Blog! #BlogisLIFE💯
- Didn’t get a job after graduating. #WhatisLife?😫
- But, I did land my dream internship in Fashion Public Relations. #GoGirl😏
- Struggled with letting go of my ex, but God is a healer! #WontHeDoIt🙌🏽
- Reunited and it feels not so good…#DatingSucksIn2017👎🏽
- Began writing out my business plans #BOSSmoves✍🏽
Not so bad right? I had to learn how to give my heart to God, trust the process with post-grad life, and continually let Him work on me because we NEVER graduate from God. The beginning of the year had its moments, but I didn’t feel tested until the end of the year…My mother had become seriously ill and was hospitalized and while she was recovering I wrecked her car in my first accident!
Like I said in my last blog Plug In, I was stressed to the tenth power. I was letting life stuff overwhelm me so I pushed pause on God. I had mentally checked out.
*Remember don’t let life overwhelm you to the point that you forget who your source is.
Well, that’s exactly what I did. On the surface I know God is ALWAYS the answer, but at the time I didn’t want Him. I wanted…. a bae. I wanted someone to hold me and take the stress away.
As soon as the thought came to mind, I reconnected with an old friend. And I’m staring at the door of temptation. In the back of my mind my vow is screaming “What you doing, what you doing, what you doing” But I mentally pressed ignore, and well y’all have to stay tuned for the rest. Just know he was exactly what I needed…
Anyways… this year started off strong and ended with me feeling like I couldn’t go forward. I felt my fire for God turn warm and that’s never a good thing. In my discomfort I know now that God was stretching me. He wanted more out of me. All I needed to do was surrender and say YES!
I’m not sure what 2018 will offer, but I do know that if He got me through the discomfort and stresses of 2017, He will surely get me through what’s to come in 2018. #TRUSTGod👌🏽
Happy New Year Daily Readers!
