Around a year ago, I started reading in Ephesians. Chapter by chapter, I have slowly inched my way through the New Testament. Today, I finished Galatians: completing my first and full NT reading.
I began this journey in a season of life where I wanted to know God more. Through this season, God has taught me so much about His faithfulness, how to trust in Him, and about what it truly means to be a follower of Christ.
What a hard and beautiful journey it has been.
In four days, I will be stepping on a plane to head to Italy for the next six weeks of my life. It is the start of a whole new season, a whole new journey, in my life.
I do not know what this new journey will be like, and I am nervous. But… I know that God is with me through every step. I know that He is faithful in every season of life.
I pray whatever season of life you are in, whether it’s a testing season, a stagnant season, or a fulfilling season, that God is with you. I pray that you use this season, and every season, to praise Him! If you are tired, if you feel like you can’t go on, just know that in God’s presence, He can fill your cup back up. Immerse yourself into God’s Word. Even in the hard times, I have never felt more full than in the presence of God while I am reading His Word. I pray He is teaching you all something incredible. John Piper once wrote, “God is always doing 10,000 things in your life, and you may be only aware of three of them.” So even when you feel like God isn’t doing anything in your life, He is!
“Let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.” -Galatians 6:9-10
Do not grow weary! Keep living, keep growing, and keep fighting that you may immerse yourself in Christ and that the gospel may go forth.
I am praising God for this new season of life. I can’t wait to share it with each and every one of you.
I love you all!
