The Sweet Taste of Victory
Today I was reminded of a conversation i had with someone really close to me about a week ago... Writing a blog isn’t about finding the deepest things to say it’s about sharing your heart and although i do that sometimes i struggle with being deep... but today on my 29th birthday... I’m just going to write and i hope you all can hear my heart and be encouraged. ❤️
I look at learning as a victory. Finding peace in your new normal is a victory. Your victory can be a lesson learned. A friendship that was gained or maybe even loss. A new perspective. A renewed outlook.
This past year God granted me so many victories.
When i turned 28 i never expected to experience so many things and learn in so many ways. My heart experienced so many different feelings. I found out things about myself i needed to learn and some i wish i could have done without.
I no longer desire to be sexy. I don’t desire to impress. I am living to show Christ in all i do. I don’t want to be anybody else. I enjoy being Brittany.
I no longer have the desire to spend all night in the midst of strangers searching for a good time. My heart finds such joy being in the midst of family and friends.
I am not searching for the peace that someone else brings i am striving to make my own peace through God. Letting him be the calming force in my life.
My husband’s happiness is not going to be the same happiness of another husband. My goal is to give him the happiness he desires. Not the happiness i read about or see on social media.
My son is not like any other child and i will not hold him to the standards of another one. He deserves to be the best George and i am her to foster that!
I have come to a place in my life where i won’t beg or plead with people to be my friends. Those who are here, are here and those who don’t desire to be here that’s fine too!
My relationship with Christ should be my relationship and although it’s fine to get advice and suggestions... i am responsible for making my walk with personal and i cannot do this by copying someone else.
My family... good or bad... are my family and even though there may be times where i can’t stand to be around someone... they are mine and nothing can change that and no one can break that.
Year 28 was tough, but so rewarding. I walked through the valleys and stood up high on the mountains. I saw how God gives and takes away.
I learned that there is no purpose outside of the father. Without Him i am absolutely nothing. And although i possess different titles— wife, mother, daughter, friend, manager... those things are meaningless without Christ at the center.
28 was a turning year. A year of renewing and breaking down. I needed this year to find purpose. I needed this year to make my life make sense. Some things that happened i will never forget, other things i hope i can forget and some i pray God brings to me at the time i need them the most.
I don’t pray for you to experience all the things i experienced in my 28th year but i pray you get you a year of rebirth, renewing and rejuvenation. And if it’s not a year... maybe a day or week or month.
I pray you taste how sweet victory can be even when you aren’t experiencing what you thought it should be. I pray you can you hold on to your victories during times you feel like giving up. I pray the knowledge you gain from your victories reside in your heart and mind for As long you need them. I am confident that even though some things may look to you as fails take time to re-evaluate...
Victory is yours. Victory is mine. You taste it? Isn’t it sweet?
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
