the 21 days...

before 2013 even started, I knew there was gonna be some soul searching going on.
I was becoming someone I've never been.
Mad at the universe.
Afraid of the future.
Frustrated with the cards I'd been dealt.

I decided to do a fast and search.
{you can read a few days here and here}

Several of the days were not posted because of their depth and I wanted to find a secret space in my heart to hide my revelations. I didn't want to be judged. I didn't want them to be known. I wanted them next to my dreams.

I'm writing today from a different place. A place who's journey isn't over just because the fast is over. A place who is still trying to listen.

the 21 days taught me:
  To rest.
 To trust.
 To love.
 He wants to bless me.
 Little by little, He will transform my weaknesses into strengths. 

I've received so many emails and texts of love and prayers. Thank you. Your words are with me. Your words encourage me. 

Life isn't all peachy roses these days. But the sun is shining and it is a beautiful morning. The grass is turning from wintery grey to bright green. The air feels fresh on my face. 

...plans not to harm you, plans to give you hope..
....come rest in ME, I am gentle...
find rest in your soul...
Be strong and courageous...
..walk by faith, not by sight...


p.s. i'm excited about tomorrow's post HIGH FIVE FRIDAY FAVORITES!
