I haven’t written in quite a while. A lot has happened over the past few months. For starters, I graduated college with two Bachelor degrees, and I am cancer free!!! Still having tummy troubles but Lord willing they’ll figure out what it is eventually. I had surgery to hopefully shrink my liver tumor, so we’ll have to go back in a few weeks to see if it’s actually getting smaller than go from there.
This has been the hardest year of my life thus far, and I’ve been through a lot.
I have suffered with anxiety and depression more this past year than ever before.
In my deepest moments of despair, I had to remind myself or be reminded by others what I believe and why it’s going to be OK.
So on this eve of the New Year 2019, I am listing exactly what it is that I believe. Everyone needs to know what they believe, or the first storm in life will knock them down for good.
Maybe this little declaration isn’t necessarily for your benefit. Perhaps it is something I must do so I can look back on these words when I’m in the next valley to remember the meaning of life and the promises of God.
That the blood of Jesus washed my sins away.
That that one day at Calvary changed everything.
That by His wounds I am healed.
In God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit, and that our God is three in one.
That Resurrection day is fast approaching, and we will rise again.
That life is hard but God is so good.
That all things work together for good to those who love God and are called according to His purpose.
That God’s ways and thoughts are higher than mine.
That with Christ truly anything is possible.
That God will supply all my needs.
That hard work and determination is the only way to achieve your dreams.
That if we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive them.
That family is the biggest blessing in this life.
That life is what you make it.
So, yeah. That’s what I believe.
What do you believe?
