2014

2014 was probably the most stressful year of my life. It included making my college decision, a break up, losing friends, leaving a sport behind I had played since I was 9, having an eye opening experience, graduating high school and leaving behind the school I went to my entire life, switching colleges at last minute, rushing, picking a sorority, meeting new people, getting into a new relationship, moving, dropping classes and other things. I'm a creature of habit so at times, this year was too much for me to handle. So many changes were made and so many things went wrong that I didn't think I could keep up. 

I remember the specific moment in 2014 when I realized I had learned to trust God. I had just gotten some devastating news that caused me to change my college decision. Being the sweet woman my mom is, she started trying to comfort me and talk me through it. After a while, she asked me my thoughts on. All I said was "God provides" and walked off. My voice seemed unfamiliar and I remember being surprised that those words came out of my mouth, but man I was right. And God showed me that the remainder of 2014.

Every single thing that went wrong in 2014 ended up being a positive for me. Every. Single. Thing. And it's incredible to me that 2014 was the year I rededicated myself to Christ and decided to let him take control of my life.

I know this post is rather short, but I felt it was only necessary to reflect on the past year of my life and how amazing God was to me. Soli Deo Gloria!
