Rise Higher.

Do you ever feel like there is a million pounds on your chest, you can't breathe, there are to many things around you that you can't control, things that are overwhelming you, situations that you never thought you would see yourself in, responsibilities that seem to much to handle. 

This past year has been a learning process, a process of learning how to breathe when the world around me felt like it was crashing down, when things I thought were stable turned out not to be so.

It was a sucky season to be in, I felt like somebody was taking my snow globe where I lived my life, shook it hard and I was left with pieces floating around me trying to figure out where I was, who I was, what I was. 

It was a season of uncertainty, of what felt like hopelessness.
I felt myself just wanting to run away from everything. 
I cried. I screamed. Things didn't make sense.

I started to make it all about me, all my fault. I started to take the blame even when I knew it was not my fault. and it became to much to handle. There was a constant battle in my head.

I still don't understand everything, but I choose to lean on the one who knows everything.
Life throws so many curve balls, it is what we chose to do in those moments, months, years that makes us who we are.

So many times it is easy to throw ourselves into a pit, of pity, self doubt, condemnation, unforgivness and the list goes on and we try to blame our current situation for how we react to everything around us. But we have the choice on how we will let a situation effect us. We have a choice to stay where we are or rise higher.

Today I chose to rise, when things don't make sense around me I chose to fix my eyes on Jesus.

Stop trying to take control, instead trust in the one who has control.
 Jesus got it. 
Take a hold of the peace today.

Don't let your situation steal your JOY!!!

Some of your greatest struggles will bring forth the most growth within you, if you let it.
I have found this truth in my life, Yes this past year was hard and it hurt..but the person I am becoming because of it is totally worth it!! #confidentinchrist

"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, 
will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus."
Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you. Philippians 4:6-9
