2018 Tried It But… Goodbye and Hello

Looking back at 2018 and to the years prior, I was tested a lot. It felt like I have been tested more than I even have been before. I received opposition from everywhere but regardless of the opposition I can truly say that God is so faithful to what He says He will do. I thank God for His strength because if I was without Him I think that I would be in a different place.

If you would have asked me last year at this time if I thought that I could see myself modeling, competing for pageants and all of the other projects that I am putting together, I wouldn’t have believed you. I would have laughed so hard that I probably would have farted. TMI?! Just being honest. *Shrugs Shoulders.*

Truthfully! I never have been the person to be on the stage or be in the spotlight. Growing up I was always pushed to be a leader or to be in the spotlight but I never desired it. EVER! I would either cry on stage or I would be shaking in the knees like a little baby giraffe trying to stand up for the first time.

But God. And the way that He does what He does has positioned me in such a way that I am reaching levels that I have never reached before. Or even thought about reaching. 2017 tried it and 2018 brought it. BUT 2019 I will conquer this thing through faith and hearing. I have to say that when you stay faithful to what seems like God's wacky, unexplainable plan He will show you the glory in all the unexplained events.

Stay diligent and encouraged my sister and brother! Better is yet to come. Trust me. As fast as you say hello to something, be just as quick to say goodbye. Not every thought, that comes to your mind is meant to stay. Be careful to fester in thoughts that are not edifying, that are terrorizing and that keep you from growing into that person you are meant to be. Faith goes by hearing and hearing through the Word of God, Roman 10:17.

Goodbye to the old and in with the new!

XOXO, Ericka Warnita
