A few weeks ago, I was looking through my blog to remind myself what I was doing last year. I was trying to tally up all the money I earned (I'm not quite to the point of filing my own taxes yet...I don't think anyone's really sure when that will actually start), and had this strange feeling I was forgetting something. Where do you chronicle your life? On the blog! So, I revisited to jog my memory.

In my scanning, I found this post.

Oh my goodness. That was not so long ago, yet my life is so different.

Can you hear the hopelessness in my writing that day? I can. And how I asked we could hit the "restart" button? Actually, Jesus was planning on hitting the "restoration" button. My life...Jesus has done the most amazing things in my life since I wrote that post.

I moved to Kansas City, got the most amazing miracle volunteer post that turned job, have connected with the most amazing friends, met some of the most amazing families, I live down the street from the Prayer Room and go every Sunday to worship with tons of people who love Jesus, all FOUR sisters live in the same city, I've been to San Diego, to DC, I saw Chloe, Peyton, Jackie, Nick, Nick, Christy, Alyssa, & Michelle at onething, my heart has been reminded of the things the Lord has whispered to me over the years, Jesus has told me more about who He made me to be...I could go on and on. Basically, I'm SO HAPPY. That post last May? The hopelessness littered through it has been gradually defeated by the unbelievable, undeserved goodness of God, and there is no doubt in my mind this is EXACTLY where I'm supposed to be right now.

Restart? No, no, no. Definitely restoration. It's the best.

Thank you, Jesus.
