2012 was a year of brokenness.
It was filled with heartache and pain and regret and lots and lots of asking why.
All I could really do was grab hold of my faith and my God and hang on.
And He held me right back.
He brought me a new Titus family to replace the family that walked away.
He brought me new friends who are faithful and trustworthy and accept me the way I am in place of the ones that weren’t and didn’t.
He brought me contentment and joy in my new-found solitude.
He brought me hope for the future.
And I survived.
Now, I’m ready to THRIVE.
I’m ready to be the person He wants me to be, not the person other people demand I be for their comfort and liking.
I’m ready to be the person I really am on the inside, but have never had the freedom to be on the outside because I was always trying to please someone else and be what they wanted.
I’m ready to follow the path that God lays out before me, wherever – and to whomever – it may lead.
I’m ready to take it one day at a time and just enjoy the present and whatever it brings without worrying about either the past or the future.
I’m ready to accept that I am ENOUGH, and am willing to wait for God to bring someone into my life who feels the same way.
I’m ready to live in the NOW.
I’m ready for the NEW.
