It has come to the end of another year. A year that was full of tests and challenges, but the experiences were life lessons that cannot be traded. My prayer has been that each year I grow, develop, and increase my understanding of what is required of me. I must say that 2016 was definitely an answer to that prayer. I am hoping as I have matured God can trust me with to carry out everything that He has purposed me to do. I am excited about the upcoming year. The most important thing that I can take away from 2016 is that I have learned to obey God to a greater degree than previous years. His unctions, nudges, and silent directions have been priceless.
