the lyrics of my year
This year has been a year of looking back and looking forward. Of thanking Him for the ways that He has shaped our journey, and trusting Him that tomorrow, He will make a way. I’ve had occasion this year to reflect on the closed doors, and the times that God said “no” to some of my biggest dreams, and realize that He knew what He was doing. And to say thank you “for the things you never gave me”. I didn’t always understand the reasons why He said no then, or why He sometimes says no now. Standing in the darkness, crying out to Him to help me to not dishonor Him by failing to understand what He was doing, hearing the words of a song that spoke what my heart didn’t know how to say about His blessings, and finding in it encouragement to embrace our raindrops together, it has been quite a year. But, the one thing that I’ll remember about 2011, is God’s faithfulness and that no matter how dark those clouds are, the sun is still shining.
What GreaThings are you thankful for today?
