Ok, I know you already know that it’s the first Sunday of the year. I would like for you to know that you made it! You made it through another year, another week, and you are here for another day. You have been through so much and you are still alive. Those days that you felt like giving up, you are still here. You are here for a reason. You made it through some of the hardest times of your life, and you made it! I want you to smile right now and say, “I made it!” You are here. Take the year of 2015 and embrace it with all you got. Take this year and just show the world all that you have. God has made you perfectly. Accept how you are made. Accept his love, accept his salvation. Let the world know your testimony. Tell others how you made it. I made it. You made it. We made it! And if you are still in the midst of trials tell yourself that you can make it. Trouble doesn’t last always, remember that. Jesus loves you so much. He died on the cross for you. He watches over you each and everyday. He wants more out of you. He wants more of you. His hand is reaching out towards you. Open your heart and your spirit to him. He’s right there. You made it!
