Adios 2019, Hello 2020!

We made it!!!! We have made it through 2019 and now entering a new decade. I can’t even begin to list all of changes I’ve gone through over the last 10 years.

My Spiritual Journey is not coming to an end. It’s an everlasting, growing relationship that I will continue to cultivate by giving my time, mind, and soul. My Spirit guides me throughout this thing called life. It’s impossible to say “it’s over” but I will no longer be documenting it on the site. I was led to do so during these last couple of months and although I didn’t write daily, I moved when God told me to move. And that was the whole point.

I’ve let go of some endeavors in 2019, including podcasting and my employment. I found a new found Faith as I depended on God to get me through emotionally and financially. And he came through every time. Not once did I go to sleep hungry. He’s kept a roof over my family’s head. And most importantly, he’s brought us closer by faith in Him. God has a funny way of getting our attention. Sometimes he’ll take away everything you’ve dedicated yourself to and give you something (or someone) new to focus on. He gave me a child, a fiancé, and reminder of my Faith.

When I started documenting my Spiritual Journey on this blog, I had no idea where it would lead me or how it would turn out. I found myself preparing to endure another season of this “unknown” state I’m in. I won’t say I became comfortable in my situation but I was coming to terms that I am on Gods time and there is nothing I can do to make things happen any faster.

A few weeks ago I decided to take a weekend break from social media. I needed some guidance on a decision regarding a job. My fiancé had said he’d support me regardless but as I mentioned in a previous post, he told me not to settle. As the weekend came to an end, I heard a great sermon that confirmed everything I had been contemplating. And then on Monday morning, I got a call saying I had received a job offer from a recent interview. No one can ever convince me that my God isn’t real. I laid my life on His table and he prepared a feast behind closed doors. I’m not so sure how that metaphor sounds but it totally made sense in my head. God gave me the job that I had been praying for. They’re paying me what I asked for, there’s plenty of room for growth, and it’s an environment in which I can be the best colleague, employee, and mother.

While the journey isn’t over, I am so glad you guys stuck with me as I poured my heart out so many times these past couple of months. Your prayers and words of encouragement have gotten me through many rough days. I pray you guys a Happy New Year.
