Here I am on the 11th day of 2018 trying my best to keep it together, as the new year began I was so optimistic for the fresh start that it held. School plans were better than ever before, workout schedule was in check, things were rolling smoothly. Then, why then😑…the flu strikes like a lion all around gunning down victims, one of my favorite people tragically lost her mother, lines are freezing, all heck is breaking loose!
It almost got me, but I was reminded that my identity is not found in any circumstance. Not in sickness, death, not in anything! My hope is found in Christ alone. He is the hinge pin of my life, He holds me together. He wants to hold you together too. He is the only answer in the face of chaos.
I still have the opportunity of a fresh start, I can begin anew each day! I don’t need the calendar to roll around to a new year to accomplish the goals that God has laid out before me. Truth is, you don’t either. We can make the choice to live each day to the fullest. If today stunk, start fresh tomorrow. Keep at it until you get it right!
