Blog-tember Day 26: How have you changed in the past year?
Fearless. It's my one word for 2014 and the way I've asked the Lord to help me live my life. Within this last year, there have been so many changes in my life. I have moved, gotten a new job, traveled to a new continent, and said some hard goodbyes. When I think of where I was last September as opposed to where I am now, I have so much to be grateful for. This year, as I was praying through what the Lord had to teach me and show me, the word fearless kept coming to mind. You see, I have had the privilege of doing some amazing things with and through only the Lord. And the longer I live and the more days I see on this earth, the more He shows me how crippling fear can be. I am fearful of the silliest things, but I also have very real fears that threaten me and grip me tight. The only freedom that I can find from these fears is through my Jesus. Through this last year, the Lord has shown me that my fears, no matter how big or small, or just nothing compared to His incomprehensible love and power. The same power that conquered the grave lives in me. And I hope and pray that as I continue to walk with Him that I'll live like I believe it.
