Christ's Victory...The Best of 2015!

Reflection is one of the most powerful gifts God gives to us. I hope that each of you can take time to reflect on this last year a see how God worked and the blessings that He gives through victories, trials, waiting, etc. Reflection is powerful because it allows us to see parts that we have not seen before, as I have seen the gentleness of God I believe we don't see those parts in the moments because we might not be able to handle it (as humans get overwhelmed pretty easily) but as we reflect He is able to make those lessons learned more permanent in our lives and hearts.

2015 brought Victory in so many ways! In my heart...over lies of worthlessness, selfishness and pride. In competition...learning to compete well and that Christ calls us to be competitive for Him and advancing His Kingdom. In friendship...Been blessed with some many friendships this year...I don't have many words just so much thankfulness for them.. Mercy, Elysse, Lucas, Josiah, Jacob, Joel, Justin, my Parents, Maryanna, Shelly, Deana, Amy, Naomi, Sarah, Faith, Vivienne, Derek, Anna, Alicia, Rebecca, April, Manna.
