This was a year of miracles, new beginnings and even revival in my life. I spent most of the year looking for work and not outpacing my unemployment benefits. More importantly, it was giving my son a chance to adapt to his new family, giving my wife and boys a hot meal and a clean house at the end of the day. I was an opportunity to give back to my family and concentrate on the Lord; thanking Him for the many blessings He provided for me and mine in a trying time.
I had to junk my car with 80,000 miles on it, and got another vehicle just in time to get back to work. It was a huge concern of mine to get reliable transportation, but the Lord had this covered.
So most importantly, it to be dependent on the Lord and just to stop the pride of worry and angst. These were things I was guilty of to the hilt before this soon to be former year. I thought I could handle my own troubles rather than the Lord, but thankfully I was wrong.
I'm still one class away from getting my bachelor's degree, but even this pales in comparison to the Object of my focus.
Now that I'm working, my hope is to keep trusting in Him and not me. Success is given by the Lord, not because of anything special we've done to earn it. I'm not counting on my job and haven't yet, but remain dependent on the Lord.
I'm sorry for the rambling capstone on this year and will continue to write my commentary and all the other stuff, Lord willing.
