One month ago there was a change that occurred in the United Sates. Our season shifted from winter to spring! Although we can hardly feel the physical difference, our calendar tells us that we are midway through pollen season. One day after this changed occurred another season shifted, but its effects were truly felt, because the changed occurred in my life! 🙂
For the past ten months God has truly been working on my faith and preparing me for something that I have yet to discover. I have been asked to step out on faith on numerous occasions with my only safety net being my full reliance on him, I have felt more uncomfortable than comfortable, and I have lost count of how many times I have asked God “WHY?!”. But through it all he has been crazy faithful and so full of grace and mercy! He has given me more reasons than not to love him more than my issues and miniscule problems. <3 This love was translated into gratefulness on March 21st, 2017 when I woke up to start my first day at a new job that God blessed me with! Everything felt different on that beautiful Tuesday morning and I feel like I have been riding on a cloud ever since. I have witnessed prayers and goals that I have written down start to unfold before my eyes in my personal and spiritual life! NONE of these blessings have come in the form that I expected them to come in, but nonetheless I am so beyond grateful to God for opening them and showing me that his ways are better than mine! 🙂
I have learned from this season change that trusting in God is not merely for your benefit, but for God’s amazing blessings to be displayed through your life for his glory! So if you’re in your season of “why?!”, know that your season change may not always be displayed in a way that you expect, but it will definitely be felt in a way that is undeniable! 🙂

Happy Holy Week!
One of the most amazing week’s of the year is now underway and I’m so excited about the revelations, blessings and power that comes from understanding the significant sacrifice made for our lives during this week.
To celebrate Holy Week I decided to take the time to sit down and figure out what parts of my life I haven’t found fulfillment in. Rather than complaining about these areas, I thought about Jesus and all that He went through during this week that led up to his ultimate sacrifice for us on the cross. The inhumane, yet beautiful act of selflessness that He made so I (and you too!) could live a life of freedom, joy, peace and abundance is priceless. I realized that nothing positive will come from us harping on the areas of our lives that we wish were different. Yes, it’s okay to recognize and be aware of those areas so that you can work towards making changes. But when we constantly think “why me ” or “might as well get used to this, it’s never gonna change”, we are devaluing the ultimate sacrifice that was made for us, and saying what He did isn’t enough to overcome our current obstacles. We’re also saying although He had the power to overcome ridicule, shame and torture, our issues are too big for him to take care of.
To overcome this lack of fulfillment, I wrote two list. On one list I put the areas of my life that I want to find fulfillment and breakthroughs, and on the other I wrote the things that I wanted to do for God in order receive these breakthroughs (to whom much is given, much is required).
I challenge you this week to do the same! What areas of your life seem to be stagnant and not moving forward? Write them down, let God know what you want to do for Him in return, and pray over it. Change your thought process and believe that the change will come.
At the end of this Holy Week, you will kiss your days of lack goodbye ! 🙂
