I mentioned in my last post that I would be sharing pieces of 2013 with you all. It was definitely an opportunity to learn and grow. So this week my topic is: The Pieces Fall Into Place. Well technically it was supposed to be my post for last week but since it's now Tuesday January 21st, I'll write again later this week.
I was sharing with someone that my 2012 was very much so connected to 2013. In 2012, I graduated from college, started a new job, and sought out a church home. Now there were other events but those were my "big three." From those three things alone I am constantly reminded that our life events are threaded together. It all ties and connects in some way.
I remember in my last semester before graduating seeing my friend Jamila and telling her I hope I'd land a job. She said to me something to the effect of, "What do you mean? You already have a job." And I thought, did she not just hear me? I am looking for jobs. She then repeated herself and it was like the light bulb came on. She was speaking victory over my life more than I was in that moment.
So through the process of getting a job in 2012 and God bringing me to my church home (The Tabernacle, thetabonline.com) in 2013 I am reminded that the pieces of our lives, our stories, the journey...they all come together in such an amazing way. I've now made it a saying of mine through joy and hardship that things will work out because it always does. And Jamila is that reminder in my heart and head that things are worked out because God's already done it.
Well, that's it for now! I'm thinking my next entry will be about my journey to finding a church home, but we shall see. I leave with you this Anita Wilson song I recently sang for an event this January. Here's the link if it won't pop up on mobile devices, http://youtu.be/ddrA_PvMy-0.
p.s. The Mixstory is almost complete. Just a few final touches. And if I may have a prayer request of you, please pray that God will help me to keep focus on His purposes for my life and to focus on Him alone. And pray that my mind will not wander. Thank you!
