{2011, a new year}

wait, what?! 2010 is almost over?! I can hardly believe but I'm looking forward to what 2011 will bring. 2010 was a tough year for me because of my health but I've also grown a lot. I've discovered how true that quote "when we are at our weakest God is strongest ( or something like that!) is. God allowed me to become so weak, physically and emotionally, so that I had to rely on Him for strength. Looking back, I only see how God has brought me through this year and  He gave me love to show to others. There were days when I just stayed in bed because I felt so bad and I thought I wouldn't survive another day. I cried out to Him for any glimpse of hope or strength. He answered me with love,hope and joy! He said you can survive with my strength I learned that there is no darkness in Christ. I am a new creation in Him. That gave me so much hope and I still have some days when I don't want to get out of bed but He gives me strength to keep going. Knowing that He is in control and He is all powerful gives me joy. God has each of us right where we wants us to be, even when we don't understand why. He loves you and me and He has a special plan for each of us. In Him there is hope, love,joy and strength.

I've also discovered how much I love my friends! God has brought some really awesome people into my life to love. My friends are the sunshine on those gray days, they pray for me, encourage and make me laugh. I'm so blessed to go through life with them :)

My 2010 "word" was love (read the post here) I've struggled with loving some certain people in my life because they are so different from me. but its those people that I need to love. God has brought them into my life for a reason. I heard this in my youth group a while ago, you don't have to be best friends with everyone and if you only love them because they were created in God's image then so be it. I do "love" them because God has created them but I want to love them for more than that. It goes against ,y sin nature but it doesn't go against God's will. I pray that God would give me love to give to others, to the people that I don't really "like". That is a testimony of Christ. I strive to be a testimony of Christ's love.

I'm excited to see what God has in store for me and you in 2011!
Hope you have a great night with your family and friends!

Happy New Years dear friends!
