Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
This has been a tough year for me in many different ways. The hardest things were probably having to make difficult decisions when I wasn't in my best frame of mind, and dealing with a world turned upside down.
Yes, it has been a tough and lonely year, but faith in God helped me to stay patient and calm. He has walked with me through some deep valleys and each time my faith only grows. I'm convinced that if life were a cakewalk we wouldn't know what faith really is. He is my rock. Thank you Lord.
