I’m at a loss for words to describe 2017. It was certainly a year of learning to trust the Lord. I went from thinking my dreams of being a lawyer would never come to be, to being a 1L at University of Idaho. Lots of things happened in 2017 that were not the way I planned, but I guess thats what trusting God is all about. You have to give up how you think things should go for how God wants them to go. Always they are better his way anyway. Relinquishing control is not easy though. I think if I had to come up with a saying or something to describe 2017, it would be that “It’s not over yet.” Mostly referring to my dreams of being a lawyer. I was certain January 2017 that I was never get to law school. I thought that maybe it was time to come up with a plan B, for my life. God had other plans. Now I sit here anxious to start my second semester of law school.
I gained a best friend in my little sister, I was healthy, my fur babies were healthy, I went on a family vacation, and a best friend vacation with Madison. It was really a year of good things.
I remember walking in to my second grade classroom and it saying Welcome Class of 2010 (I ended up repeating 1st grade that year so I graduated in 2011). I though that seemed so far away, like it would never happen. Now, that date 8 years in the past. I feel older, but in other ways I still feel like that second grader in awe of the time passing.
2018, I wanna focus on the Lord. I wanna lift my hands in praise and do nothing but let him guide my steps.
Thank you Lord for 2017, and thank you in advanced for the greatness to come in 2018.
