I am sure that right now there are people writing on this prompt all over about how they adore God and how God adore’s us, His children. But I am not going to write about that because well I hope/pray that it is clear that I adore God and I trust in His unconditional love.

So instead I am going to write about all the wonderful things that He has blessed me with over the past year. Most of which are people. It is amazing to me that God has worked in ways to place people I absolutely respect and adore in my life path, with thousands of miles between us.

After my kids, there is Jon. A man who I respect and adore more than anyone else, a person who not only helps me get through the brutal hard but who has helped me to heal in ways I never thought possible. While his beliefs aren’t the same as mine I know that God placed him in my life because his presence has answered so many prayers.

Then there are the Five Minute Friday ladies. Without them I don’t think I would be where I am with my walk with God. In a lot of ways this five minute ministry has become my church and a place that is safe where I can worship God and always feel like my feelings are valid. Their words of encouragement on the Thursday night party’s are an awesome way to get to know each other, what they place on my blog in the comments though? Those are inspiring, they get me through those rougher days and they make me feel like I belong even when I have doubts. God didn’t make any mistakes in me stumbling across this ministry or with any of the friends I have made along the way.

Finally there is Hello Mornings and the wonderful ladies I have met there and how I felt led to AC with one of the people from FMF. It seems so random but I know that God had plans for it and I am so grateful to have Jen in my life. She is so sweet and has such a heart for serving the Lord and being in the Word.

Each person I have met and each group makes me want to be better and I absolutely adore that. I lived so many years wanting to hide in the shadows because of fear and now because of all the wonderfulness I would rather live in the Light and be killed than hide in the dark waiting to die.

I adore each and every one of you and I can’t wait to see what 2015 brings us and how God works in my life over the next year!

  1. What sweet words, Marisa! It’s amazing how God brings just the people we need into our life just when we need them. May your Christmas be filled with joy and blessings given and received.

    • Yes! This year I really began to believe what I have said for years “There are no coincidences with God” and I think y’all are a perfect example of that! Thank you for stopping by!

  2. I love how you stated the very beginning of this post! It should be clear to all that we adore God. Right? Yes! I kind of laughed inside as I read that. I think this is such a powerful statement. I just can’t get over it! Loved reading about your blessings! I feel like I can relate to all of yours! Thanks for being a great neighbor on FMF 🙂

    • Heheh thanks! It seemed like a “duh” moment for me because we are a bunch of Christian bloggers so I decided to take it a different way then where I expected everyone to go. I am happy you enjoyed that truth!

  5. How bless have you been this year Marisa, and there’s no doubt that God has a reason for every people we meet. I’m grateful for being part of this FMF community because all of you encourage me to always remember me Him. Thank you so much!!!
