another year.

Today marks another year of life the Lord gave me. Wow. What a gift!  It’s so easy to walk this earth in assumption of another day, another week, another month, and dare I say another year. But every breath is a grace from Him, the One whom by day commands His steadfast love and by night gives me a song of mercy to sing. He is the God over my life. If we only knew even the tip of the iceberg of miracles He performs in our lives on a moment-by-moment basis, I think our response would be nothing more than to melt into a puddle. 
I remember last December 9, I was at my new job in New Jersey, teaching the Bible to a group of incredible ladies. I couldn’t wait to go home that night because my new-ish boyfriend, Matt, would take me to dinner to celebrate. Little did we know that just a few months later, a global pandemic would begin, my new-ish boyfriend would turn into my fiancé, I would get laid off from the job I moved to New Jersey for, my little brother and sister would each have babies, I would move to a new house, plan a wedding, my fiancé would turn into my husband, and by December 9, 2020, life would be completely different – all graces and mercies of God (even the hard moments). By day the Lord commands His steadfast love, and at night His song is with me. The best days, the worst days, the confusing days – Jesus is the same. His love never ends. His salvation is free, and His words are true. I am so thankful for His unfailing love for me and for you. I pray for many more years to advance His Kingdom on earth as it is in Heaven. Praise His Name Forever!
