Since I became a mom, holidays have been really meaningful to me. There’s something so special and nostalgic about the excitement in your child’s spirit each holiday.
Many people know I’m a strong believer that everything happens for a reason. I can actually say I’ve made every single “life” decision through my gut. Is that weird? Probably.
But let me explain. It’s the feeling you get when you’re about to make a huge choice and while you’re weighing the objectives and outcomes, you sense yourself being pulled specifically toward one of those directions.
That’s what I call my “gut” feeling, and I’ve consciously lived this way my entire life. Since I can remember, I believed if I always listened to that sense of knowing, I’d end up where I was supposed to be.
And so far, I’d say fate has always been extremely generous to me.
After my grand mom passed in December 2016, I think she started working with me to see life more clearly than I had before. I felt like I became a little wiser with certain things. I also felt a significant pull toward other’s feelings and my own faith.
With that being said, at the same time, my sister would continually encourage me to come to her church. As usual, my “gut” knew it was something I was supposed to pursue, but life kept getting in the way. And then one day, I woke up and knew I was ready to commit. Just like that.
And this is where my blog post comes in.
Do you ever get those revelations in life when you know something is about to change? That’s what happened.
I went into church with an open heart. In that moment, it started to make sense that my “gut” was actually God. If you listen closely, he’s speaking through your heart too.
We’re all created for our own purpose, and if you let go of your thoughts and listen to his voice through your heart and soul, you’ll find yourself achieving it and living your best life.
There is something so special and unexplainable about feeling God’s love throughout your soul.
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight." Proverbs 3:5-6
