Lately there has been a common theme on repeat as I position myself for great things in 2015. Restoration, redemption and renewal. I’ve wasted a lot of years making unwise decisions, masking hurts, blaming others, carrying my past, feelings of inadequacy and failure. I need to throw some unforgiveness in the mix too. You think you’ve forgiven someone and you may have but the release hasn’t taken place. If anything reminds you of them there’s an angry spark that ignites and you aren't sure where it came from.
I’ve written a few posts (here, here and here) about how God is healing me from the inside out and remaking me into a better woman, sister, daughter, mother, teacher, friend and prayer warrior who is honest and bold in my living for Him. The process has been tough at times because I had to admit that I was responsible for most of my setbacks even if others did things to destroy me or uncontrollable life events happened. What I can celebrate today is being able to see the fruit, the abundant harvest this work, this process of pruning is producing.
