Dear April 2018,
I often sit back and wonder when it comes to writing these specific blogposts...what did I learn this month? I can't say it was one specific thing in April 2018. For lovely months such as this past April, it's hard to find words to fully describe it. But I think a good word would be... inspirational.
Do you ever feel like a sponge? (Not the one that lives in a pineapple under the sea.) you're just learning so much you feel like you could burst, but then God keeps soaking you in His truth and you keep growing and growing? That's what April felt like to me this year.
I'll be completely honest, April started out rough from the remains of disappointments back in March. But as our church started revival and then the church my grandfather pastors started revival the week after, I began to feel inspired. I sat back and soaked all of God's goodness in- the singing, what the minister had to say, the testimonies, all of it was food for my soul and I felt like my burdens were so small after each special night.
I was reminded that my God is so big...and He cares for my heart. In addition to that, I was also reminded that if I wanted to see things happen in my community- in the world for God, I have to start with myself. Am I being what I ought to be? Am I filling myself up with God's Word? Am I fully committed to God? You see, I'm no where near perfect, I'm still learning, and I'm still growing as I blog to you. Do I make mistakes? Yes. As the fun children's song says:
It took Him just a week to make the moon and the stars,
the sun and the earth and Jupiter and Mars.
How loving and patient He must be,
He's still working on me.
I'll never fully be finished until God Himself comes back and changes me. Until then, I'm responsible for daily digging into God's Word and feeding my soul, because that's more important than actual food.
So, as rambly as that might have been, April, you were this: inspirational. God, thank You for April, and for inspiring me this beautiful month.
I'll Keep Smiling,
