When I think about that it blows my mind. In ways I feel like it was yesterday and in other ways it seems like forever.
I have made it for half of a year. For some reason, that thought seems monumental. Like some major accomplishment. I have a lot going through my mind and heart today.
I went to church this morning and we started a new sermon series, "Promises"! Such an appropriate theme for my theme (New) this year. Many of the promises that I am clinging to have been promises of redemption for pain. Hope when life seems Hopeless. Beauty for the ugly things that come into our lives. It was so encouraging to have the truths, the hopes, the sure thing of the promises that God made spoken of today. What He says, He WILL do! Thankful and clinging to that hope.
We sang a new song today. And as we did, I felt like it was for me. "I Will Trust You" by Bryan and Katie Torwalt...the first words rang in my ears:
I remember the strength of your love, O God
