Originally I was going to write a post on my regretting not being good enough for Jesus and him reminding me progress is okay. I felt I was being a little hard on myself even writing it, gave it some time, and decided, well, I’d rather not share it at all. Suffice to say the moral was summed up in the first sentence I listed above.
So, what would I like to talk about instead?
Well, as my title suggests, gratitude.
Next Friday, the 22nd, it will have been a year since I graduated from my DTS. A few weeks after that and it will be a year since I got home.
And what a year it’s been.
God has provided so much for me. I’ve made so many new friends this year, plugged in with people my age, found a new job that I really enjoy with people I really like, and processed through a lot. I’ve found freedom, joy, and a re-commitment to some of my passions, found others who share similar passions, and learned a lot about what my path with God looks like. I’ve matured, forgiven, read, written, and learned so much, both at my new job, with old things I thought I knew, and about life in general.
It’s been such a blessing.
Thank you, God, family, and friends. It’s been a beautiful year.
8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
So, how was your year? What are you grateful for? Let me know in the comments below!
