I’ll fight with you no matter how hard the battle is..
We spend so much time running from who we are meant to be. We forget to see the good we can do because we are so afraid of shaking things up. I’ve always been different. I’ve always stood out from the crowd. No matter how hard I try to blend in and stay in the shadows, God pushes me to the front.
“Even though I love this crazy life. Sometimes I wish it was a smoother ride ..”
I grew up in foster care. I bounced around from group home to group home. I lived in my first group home when I was 11, left my final group home at 16. My first forever family came into my life at 13. I loved them with everything my heart could share. Due to world changing events (September 11, 2001), the family changed their mind. It was a rough transition from having a family to living in a detention center (because that was the only bed they had for me), and bouncing in and out of groups homes.
This year my goal is to be better. Not just for those around me, but I want to be better for myself. 2016 taught me to focus on what brings me joy. I’ve learned that Heavenly Father brings people into our lives for a reason. Some for a short period of time, others for a life time. While 2016 did have it’s challenges, it was also filled with blessings. I’ve been blessed to have amazing people in my life who love me. Because of their love and support I’m able to make it through the hard days. Heavenly Father has shown me that I am not alone, nor need I never feel alone. He has been the one constant person that I can rely on. He has put people in my life who have shown me even when I run away from Him he is waiting for me to come back.
