This year I started in January by asking God to “start with me.” I asked Him to help me to see me and work on myself. I asked Him to help me to stay in my own lane and be my own person in Him. I’ve always been independent but I didn’t know how to ride solo. I’ve always had friends because I’ve always been friendly. But this year I had to learn how to walk alone. I had to learn how to love myself all over again. He showed me how to walk in strength in the midst of chaos. He also showed me how to always hold my head up, as I have nothing to be ashamed of! He’s greater within me! So, I’ve developed a thick skin this year that some people have mistaken to be nonchalant. I just realized that people’s perception of me does not equal my reality. I know my reality and I know who He has created me to be. It’s been long and lonely. The survival has not been easy but I’m determined to keep pushing. I still have more growing to do. My desire is to intentionally right all of my wrongs. I’ve shedded some dead skin as well as dropped a lot of dead weight. I didn’t wait until 01.01.2018 to decide to change. I embraced my transformation along the journey. So as the clock strikes 12, there will be no resolution, just a continuation of the changes that He has begun in my life. And if I know nothing else, I know that He that hath begun a good work in ME will be faithful to complete it!
What’s your evaluation for 2017?
Happy New Year from Chandra K.
