“For your steadfast love is great to the heavens,
your faithfulness to the clouds.”
~ Psalm 57:10 (ESV)
Only 2 days left in 2010. I really cannot believe how fast 2010 went by. How about you? Did God teach you some valuable lessons the past year? Did you grow closer to Him?
I have to admit that 2010 was a year of sheer emotions; all of them have made me grow though. The good with the bad. I had a really hard time in October coming to terms with my age, with lost opportunities, mistakes I have made in the past.
Thankfully during that time I had a great friend, who encouraged me. You know, God is good and He will never leave you by yourself with your emotions. The most important part I have learned during 2010 is that with all things happening, they all have a reason.
I know, sometimes things happen that no one seems to see a reason for it (for myself not making the planned trip to see my family). I know that some of my friends have had a hard year as well; be it financially, marital problems, health issues, loosing loved ones. You ask: is there a good reason for all these issues? I do not have the answer, but I do know that it showed me personally that I can trust God seeing me through all the low points of life. And that, my dear friend, I am very thankful for.
I am looking forward to 2011 with new hopes and dreams, knowing that all is good, because God is in control.
