2014 in Review: Faithfulness

Looking back at the start of 2014, I would have never known or guessed that this year would be as monumental as it has been. I had a feeling that 2014 would be different, but I didn’t know just how different and amazing it would be.

Another beautiful characteristic of last year was the Lord’s faithfulness that I saw all year-long.

Psalm 89:2 “For I said, “Steadfast love will be built up forever; in the heavens you will establish your faithfulness.”

In 2014 I..

Most importantly, I fell in love with the Lord all over again. His grace completely amazes me.

All in all, it has been a beautiful year. I’ve grown closer to my Savior, experienced the joy of friendships and family, lived life passionately, ran zealously and loved deeply. I am excited to see where the Lord leads me in 2015. This year, I already know it is going to be big.

“As it is my eager expectation and hope that I will not be at all ashamed, but that with full courage now as always Christ will be honored in my body, whether by life or by death. For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.”

Philippians 1:20-21

The best is yet to come.
