Welcome to 2016

This past year was challenging to say the least. Yet there were silver linings too. How has yours been? Ready for the new year?

Firstly, apologies for disappearing off the face of the earth over the past few months.  2015 was, in a word, challenging.  I began the year feeling it was the year to live as if the things I hoped for had already come to fruition.  As we all know, anything worthwhile comes with a price-tag, and boy, did I pay!  The year was filled with immense trials to say the least!  {and ridiculous joys too! So important to not forget…}

So yes, a crazy year all in all, and somewhat quiet in the land of blogging, but I’m back…  and at some point, I’ll fill in some of the gaps from the year that I would have gladly wished away, yet am so blessed to have lived.  If every cloud has a silver lining, then the things I’ve learnt and the ways I have  grown along the way are my sparkles…

As we head into the new year, I want to share a song that has blessed me immensely, as I hope it will you…

It is well (Bethel)

Grand earth has quaked before
Moved by the sound of His voice
Seas that are shaken and stirred
Can be calmed and broken for my regard

And through it all, through it all
My eyes are on You
And it is well with me

Far be it for me to not believe
Even when my eyes can’t see
And this mountain that’s in front of me
Will be thrown into the midst of the sea

Through it all, through it all…

So let go my soul and trust in Him
The waves and wind still know His name…

Know that this year, I’m a girl praying and believing that you will come to know our beautiful Saviour in a much deeper and more intimate way than you ever have before.  And as you grab a hold of Him, I know He will show you His faithfulness in a million and one ways, both big and small…

I’m a girl growing {putting one foot in front of the other, holding onto God’s hand, in order to finish what He has started in me}
