So encouraged tonight. The Lord is so sweet. When I was first engaged the Lord reminded me of this song by Watermark called "Mended" I wrote in my journal how I wanted to play this song at my wedding because it was a beautiful picture of what the Lord had done. Fast forward 9 months and I am having a quiet night drinking wine, listening to pandora, and reading and the Lord reminds me of this song. This time, He pricks my heart with these lyrics, "we will stand grateful for all that has been left behind and for all that goes before us...Lord you are to be praised." 

As the holidays come close it is easy for me to sink into sad mode comparing this time this year to last year. I just can't even do it. I am so excited for what He is doing ahead of me that there is no time for sadness. I am filled with a thankful heart. The year of 2012 I can honestly say has been a year of pain and sorrow, but will end with Joy and Praise. 

Song of the day is "Mended" by Watermark. This song is one the Lord continues to thread through my life. Through the joys, the pain, the tears, and the praise, it is a song I will forever love and be thankful for.

A Healed Heart..

I haven't blogged in a long time. I haven't really know what to say to be honest. Just this past week, I was driving windows down music blasted and I realized my heart doesn't hurt anymore like it did. The past 6 months have been some of the most painful months, but I would go through them all over again because of where I am now. I am so blessed! so thankful that the God I serve and follow knows what is best. I am so thankful for the ways that he has and is turning my mourning into joy. I am loving everyday that I live in Nashville. I have always wanted to get into medical sales and the lord provided that as soon as I was obedient and followed him here. He meets me here. He has always met me, but I was too busy trying to help him out. The way I lived my life prior to my engagement ending was as if I thought the lord was too busy to answer my prayers so clearly I needed to help him. As the rug was pulled out from underneath my feet I am seeing he is never too busy for me. He has the best plans. He has written the most beautiful story for me, I just have to surrender my control and open my hands and say "okay, Lord I am here and I will go where you go and I will love where you love."

song of the day: "Carry Your Name" by Christy Nockels
