When I look back on all that happened in 2018, I am amazed to see God’s hand in every little thing. The mundane, the spectacular, the stressful, the day-to-day, the sad, everything was touched by Him and made good by Him.
In mid-2018 we had to bury our dog Scout after he ate a ball and it got stuck in his intestine. Scout was our first family dog and losing him left a large hole but God filled it in every way. Friends provided support in every way and as a family, we came together and were closer after Scout died. We mourned together and we came through it stronger than ever. The event was sad but from it came further solidified friendships and a strengthened faith in God’s ability to use all things for good.
This year was crazy at my work with contracts getting cancelled and having to move around the company to different teams as a result but God was there every step. When the contract I was on got cancelled, there was a spot already available on a different team, that was in need of someone with my skillset. All that said, I didn’t lose my job, I got to work on a great team and I made some awesome new friends on the way. When the opportunity came to work on the team I am on now, everyone was super supportive and helpful and I am just amazed at how it all worked out. God was all over it. All I had to do was give the situation to Him and trust that He would use it for good.
These are just a few of the funky spots throughout this year and I can confidently say that when I look back on 2018, I can see God’s handprints clear as day and I have never been more thankful to Him for what He has done and what He continues to do.
For 2019 my resolution is to take every opportunity I can to give it all to God and be patient enough to see Him work. God is great! and I can’t wait to see what he does in 2019.
