It’s the new year and while it’s all exciting, am I the only one who feels a bit off and overwhelmed? It’s almost mid-month and yet, I feel like I have not built any momentum. Don’t get me wrong, things are going well. In fact, something exciting is actually happening in our lives right now [...will share very soon- and no, I’m not pregnant, yet! ;)] I am feeling great all in all. It’s just that I’m a little out of focus. I feel like there’s this pressure to be so pumped up about the new year and enthused about what’s to come. Yet, here I am, not feeling this way and I am a little concerned because there are so many things I really want to accomplish this year.
So, as I was planning and figuring out some answers, I was listening to a song this morning (for the first time) called, Blessings (by @laurastorymusic), and I was reminded of one thing - my #barofgoodness necklace.
.
The #barofgoodness image on this post is my very first personal piece that I made for myself before even I launched #linkofhearts. My words are: Trust Him-Be Brave-Be Still-Faith. It’s been my daily reminder to be still and TRUST GOD, even as I went through various struggles from personal to building #linkofhearts. I can vividly remember, when I got pregnant about 2 years ago, the day we were about to hear the heartbeat of our baby in the doctor's office. I kept holding and rubbing on this bar. My husband asked me what words I had and I said, “Trust Him,” which I continued to do so even while finding out there was no heartbeat and we had lost the baby. It was heartbreaking and there are no words to describe it, but I remained committed to trusting Him.
.
Today, I am reminded once again that I shall keep trusting Him for what’s to come this year and His guidance regarding the direction and growth of Link of Hearts. I will not panic even though I’m totally not on point with my goal-setting around this time. I know He has bigger plans for us and that everything will be OK. I trust He is working it all out and that the best is yet to be, only in HIS time... Now, I pray that YOU will have the same faith, if not more, and trust that everything will also be ok. :) xo
