Seasoned for the season.

Saturday marked five years since I moved out of my parent’s house. Bruiser quickly made himself at home in our new apartment; he used to love sunbathing in front of the sliding glass doors.

It’s amazing thinking about how much has changed since then. How much happened in that apartment. Friends that came and went, lessons learned, frozen meals made. I’ve lived with C for about a year now, but the four years in my apartment were some of the best (and worst) times of my life.

I feel like God seasons you; prepares you for the plans he has for your life. He knew what great things He had in store for me, and I was nowhere near ready. I wasn’t strong, I wasn’t confident in myself, or confident in my relationship with Him. And the path to get to that point was a hard one. I went through some really difficult things. Some things that I felt like God was the only one there for me.

Hebrews 13:21 assures us that God will equip you and prepare you for you to do His work. I didn’t know it then, I didn’t understand why God would put me through some of the things that he did. But I know now that it was all in preparation!

I also know that you can’t truly love a significant other until you fully love yourself and love God. For that, I am thankful for the trials. I know that those years of finding myself and learning who I really am has only bettered my relationship with C and made me a better woman for him.

I dated a lot during that time. I don’t think that’s a bad thing; I think when you’re young, you should. I do not mean sleeping around! I mean casually dating, find out what you really want and the qualities that are important to you. But remember, it is all in His time! When the time was right, I was presented with the perfect man, and I couldn’t be happier!

I now feel prepared to go forth, seasoned and ready to do God’s work as a disciple!
