What do you think? Do you like the new design? Personally, I like the clean, crisp look that this design brought.
I also, created a Facebook page and added a link to my Pinterest account.
Since my 18th birthday, I've been going through some "growing pains." No, I'm not getting taller... I'm destined for shortness :)
Rather, these are growing pains of character. These kinds of growing pains build depth and maturity - something I wasn't really prepared for, but am thankful for, anyway.
Just like physical growing pains, this hurts for a reason. Simply put, these growing pains are growing me in spiritual, emotional, and relational ways. It's bringing many changes, and changes are never easy, however necessary they may be.
I still don't know for sure why we go through seasons of trial and pain in our lives... Perhaps just to keep us humble and make us more like Christ. But I know one thing... Our God is in Control. And that is all that really matters. Because when He has control of our lives, we know that everything will turn out right in His time. What a blessing to know the One who holds the whole world in His hands... and, yet, still has an intricate and distinct plan for each of our lives!
And you know what??
It is through these times of "growing pains" that God reveals more of Himself to us. He sustains us, and keeps us... and we learn it more in trials. Because it is when we realize that we are frail, insecure, and unable, that we realize that He is ALL this and MORE!
There is a song by Steven Curtis Chapman called Our God is in Control.
Yes, it was, indeed, the inspiration for this post... Why do you ask? :)
Anyway... this song came on my Pandora (seriously, God's gift to music lovers! :) ) the other day and I immediately fell in love with it. Sometimes, the right song, at the right time is just what you need. And that's what this was to me.
I'd like to share the lyrics with you, in the hope that it may help you, too.
