Editor’s Note: This post was written + drafted on 12/29/17.
As we’re approaching the new year (totes writing this two days before with a plan to schedule this post a week or so after the first. #transparency) it’s human nature to reflect on the year we’re getting ready to part with. We all have our ways to go about it to let loose and reflect. I have learned a lot in 2017, pushed myself a lot, made great contributions, but I’ve also hurt a lot, misplaced part me of myself, and cried a lot. Yup, the emo train had a rest stop at my door. But, in the midst of it all, I was able to remain strong, hopeful, and comforted. He did it all, my Father, Jesus.
I am writing this post because of a) this is my blog & b) I will not hide whom I worship, love, embrace and live for. Truth be told, He’s had my back more than anyone I’ve met circa ’17. Through my defeats, failures, and cries, He remained with me and gave me comfort, like the Father, He is.
For the last two years, I’ve told myself that I would get started with She Reads Truth‘s Monthly Bible Studies but that totally failed. This year — hello 2018, I’m doing it. I have been following She Reads Truth for ages now, found via Instagram, and fell in love. Seeing how much we (account’s social engagements) all love Him, and stand forever merciful of His grace is pretty awesome. I know He’s looking down at us saying, “you da best!”. Writing this post totally holds me accountable for my actions, and I will not disappoint this time.
If you’ve heard about She Reads Truth, I’d love to hear more about your experience finding a community such as them. I also would love to know if you’ve done any of their study group. I’m kicking off my readings with Proverbs: The Way of Wisdom study which also happens to be free on the app, ladies! If you’ve already doing a plan or thinking about doing a plan, I’d love for us to “e-join”, and do this together, let me know!
I have a couple of plans on my queued list and this year I definitely aim focus and ground myself for learning the Word of God. I want to know more and become stronger in my walk.
I know what I’ve been through, and I know who’s always had my back, and that’s Jesus.
