And honestly, I should have realized that long time ago. That I wasn’t really first, that I’m always next to her.
I want to please You, and not the world. I want to do things for Your glory and not mine. I want my life to be a book of blessing, a prism that will radiate Your light.
I hope for love to still embrace me when I’m hardest to love me, when I’m the perfect noun for disastrous, when I’m complicated and flawed, when I can’t even look at myself.
You are good, always. Even when I don’t understand anything, even when I’m sitting in the lowest point of my life.
I am believing in myself, that there is beauty inside me, that I am my own sunshine, that I am a work of art.
So let them go.
I thank 2016 for the chance to discover how much I love being with you.
Excuses will always be there for you, opportunity won’t.
I remember the good old days, the moments together, how he would always be the first person I want to tell all the good news to.
Let 2017 be the year you will open your eyes to the richness of life and of people.
