Life is a journey and can be a challenging one. Ups and downs occur on continuous basis, and sometimes it seems as though we are losing control of all possessions around us, but knowing that you are in the right place at the right time at all times is essential. I've learn through life experiences that things are not always going to go the way you predicted them to. You just have to be ready to change the plan at any given moment, while knowing the path was already prearrange for you before you even arrived on this planet.
The day I took the picture you see right above this text was a day of distress for me. After making a wise decision to go to college full time to pursue my bachelors degree; I experience a sequence of life changing events that left me in a hollow place. I felt lost and confused and really unsure of what I should do about my future. I found myself further away from who I wanted to become and closer to my Father which is who led me here today. I begin to attend church three to four times a week and during a bible study of the book of Ruth, I walked in class, sat down, and before me was this magnificent cross shining in on me. I felt extremely blessed because miraculous things like this don't happen every day. At that very moment I knew I was in the right place at the right time.
After that day, my storms increased, but even then I stayed close to my Lord and savior. Through it all I learned how to let go. Let go of my worries and my stress and just let God. I learned how to be strong, strong through losing a loved one, strong with my confidence. I learned how to love myself, but most importantly I learned how to love God. Knowing that there is something, someone, some higher power, working just out of pure love for us is the reason why we should strive to be the best us we can be.
Love yourself, love who you are, love what you do, and let that be your guidance to the right moments in your life.
