Blog 194: End of a year


Can you believe that its the end of 2020 already and aren’t we ready to see the end of it? I have had two weddings, including my own, a honeymoon, holidays, doctors appointments, family events, birthdays, my best friend and brother got married, my sister has got engaged, Christmas has come and gone, there have been walks, there have been illnesses, there have been viruses, there have been national and local lockdowns and so much more! It is the 31st December and so much has happened over the year that I am thankful for and things that I would love to change. There have been things that I have not be proud off, moods that I should not have had and so much more. I can’t believe that this year has ended, the last time I knew it was just starting and I didn’t have that long until my wedding and now I have been married for 5 months and I am so blessed.

Today it is the end of 2020 and another year has gone and we are all a year older! What have you been able to do this year? What have you been proud of? What have you achieved this year? What are you regretful about? Has someone close to you past away? Has this year been what you want it to be? Have you achieved your goals? 2020 may have been a year of ups and downs, may have been good or bad, may have been sad or happy, may have been hard or easy but guess what? You got through it and you are still here to tell the tale! Every year we wonder how it has flown past and how life has seemed to over take us. Life is busy, we are doing things, work is starting up again soon, life continues to go and we hope that it is all good and we are all healthy and no other viruses will come our way.

As I look back over this past year I can see that a lot has happened, I have been to many places, I have made new friends, seen different people, reached out to others, got married but most of all that God has been good to me. He has helped me through the difficult times, supported me through the easy times, been my friend when no one else was there, been someone to count on when I can’t count on anyone else, been there to cry to when there isn’t a shoulder, been there to thank, been there to encourage. What an amazing God we have and I am so thankful and blessed that He has been able to help me through the last year. I am so thankful that when other people have not been able to be there He has and He has been able to help me through all the trials that I have gone through. He has been consistent and He has not failed me although I have done multiple times. I am so thankful and blessed for all the people that He has put in my life to help me to get through this year.

As I look back and think of all the amazing things I’ve been able to do, the people that I have met, the places that I have been and look forward to seeing what 2021 holds. I like looking back to seeing what I have achieved but I also love looking forward and seeing how God is going to use me for His glory. I wonder what God has in store for me, I wonder who I will meet, the places I will go but how I can use my life for God and what He has planned for me on this earth. I know that as I get older there will be more things that need to be done and more things that should be done and so I will worry more but I know that God is in control and and He has my life in His hands.

Whatever the past has held and whatever the future will hold I know that God has everything in control and He will help me to become the best person that I can be and He will help me to rely on Him more. In the past I haven’t done things that I should have and have done things that I shouldn’t have but I know that because I have accepted Jesus God will never let me go. As we all move into 2021 there will be things that will not go our way but God is fully in control. He know that you were going to be born before the creation-how amazing is that!
