At the beginning of 2020 I tried something I’ve never done before, a vision board. I sought the Lord out in prayer on what 2020 was supposed to look like for me.
God spoke freedom over me, healing from shame and years of abuse, he said I would share my testimony and bring hope to others. God said we would never lack or go without, he grew my business and provided work opportunities.
This was the year he would make beauty out of my ashes.
For many, 2020 was a stressful one. For me it marked the ending of my divorce. A lot of things were lost but I choose to glorify God and not what the enemy took.
2020 was the year God spoke freedom over me. He promised to make beauty for ashes, to restore, and to heal. He did just that!
Life felt like it would be over. I was so scared of what was to come but God said go deeper. Just keep praying, there’s more !
So I pushed and pressed forward. I just had to believe that He would make things beautiful again. I’m so proud of how far I’ve come. I’m not where I want to be but I’m exactly where God needs me to be.
For 2021, if you are struggling to see the light at the end of the tunnel, I encourage you to keep on going.
Just keep praying.
Psalm 34:8 Taste and see the that Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.
Let 2021 be the year you choose to see the goodness of God in every situation. Yes, even the crappy ones. Choose to praise Him in the midst of the chaos, choose to Glorify His name in the middle of the storm. When you choose to dig deeper and accept His invitation to taste and see His goodness the enemy begins to shake in his boots.
The enemy looses power over you and can no longer keep you stagnant. I promise if you just believe and trust in God you"ll be blessed.
If you are struggling to see the light at the end of the tunnel, I pray for 2021 that your faith increases. That the Lord will restore, heal, and make beauty out of your ashes. If you are tip toeing I pray you go all in, dig deeper and just believe.
Your life isn’t falling apart, it has just begun.
