Work It Harder Make It Better Do It Faster Makes Us Stronger

One year later that's how I feel. "Grace and mercy brought me through. I'm living this moment because of You." Chile I made it!! And I'm excited!! This time one year ago I was acting up. I won't call it overreacting because who's to say that? It was how I was feeling at the time. I'm convinced I needed to go through that in order to help someone through something else in the future. I have peace now surrounding what happened. 6Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

I wasn't as close to God as I am now. The incident, as I've previously mentioned, brought me closer. It was my personal earthquake. I had to move on. I had to allow Him to turn a dark event into light. I had to forgive. 13Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.

I know my trials are preparation for my triumphs. (c) Jameil

Look out world!! Here I come!! How excited are you?? BECAUSE I'M ECSTATIC!! THANKS G(od)!

Hooray for handing all your worries over to God! I've been doing that today. It's such a better option than getting drained by fear. Just let God handle it.
