everyday is a blessing

why do I love playing my guitar or painting or listening to music? because for once in my life i can call the shots and can make beautiful things out of nothing. that is something that brings me closer to God because that is exactly what He does everyday. how couldnt i love something that helps me gain a new perspective?

these eyes capture the brightness of the dreams that I have set for myself to accomplish. its funny because i almost forgot that they were there! this has been one of the most testing years i have ever encountered. i thought that i had forgotten about my dreams and that they were no longer a part of me as they used to be. i thought i lost my passion, but in reality i lived out so many of my dreams within the past year. this past year i moved away to university and embarked on my own journey where i was no longer under my parents guidance. i officially finished my first year of university, and i did so much better than ever imagined. i taught myself guitar, not that much but enough to be able to lead worship with a few friends. i learned forgiveness and how to be able to smile at the people that hurt me and grow back those relationships. i was challenged to go out and try to accomplish the things that God called me to do. i made new friendships that will last forever. i had the chance to watch a good friend grow in their faith. i finally came out of my comfort zone and reached out to others. i finally get to have the job i have been patiently waiting for for 4 years. these things are all in some way connected to my dreams. God brought me through this year with so many blessings and i was too consumed to realize it. all of these things that happened did not happen in my own strength but in God’s. its been a really long time since i looked at my dreams with passion knowing full well that they are only possible through Christ. the picture that you see above was only taken a week ago. look at my eye so bright and full of joy. its funny because i thought i had lost that but actually i just didnt realize i had it. im so thankful that God has shown me these things and that the passion that i had is back and im ready to go :) 
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me Philippians 4:13

You can never run too far from God where His grace couldn’t reach. No matter how far you go, He will always be calling for you. Reject condemnation and listen to the voice of conviction. Your Father is waiting for you.
