just above the surface

Happy Memorial Day Weekend! Sending lots of love and thanks to the families/friends of military personnel who have sacrificed their lives for this country. My thoughts are also with the families/friends of people who have lost their lives to COVID-19.

I was telling my mom that I feel like this time of quarantine is like an opportunity to reflect and reset. My outlook on life is forever changed, for the better!

Between the archives here on AD and my journals, I have a rough timeline of the last 8 years of my life, so from the time I was 12 up until now, at 20. Looking back through my years in middle school, high school, and the last two years of college, aroused a wide range of emotions. Recalling some events made me laugh because they were funny then and still are today. Other events, though painful, made me marvel at how God brought me through that season in my life. Overall, it was encouraging to see where I have been and where I am today.

I pray with great faith for you, because I’m fully convinced that the One who began this glorious work in you will faithfully continue the process of maturing you and will put his finishing touches to it until the unveiling of our Lord Jesus Christ!

Philippians 1:6 TPT

I am not the same person that I was 8 years, 8 months, 8 weeks, 8 days, or even 8 seconds ago. Sometimes, it seems like I am walking in circles, making no progress, yet the path up the mountain in life often takes many shapes ―circular, linear, zig-zagged, combination path etc. God is constantly working on me, often at microscopic levels that are just above the surface of my perception.

I encourage you to take your own walk down memory lane and pat yourself on the back! Stand in the mirror and be proud about how you have allowed God to transform and change you over the years.
