Hello Lovelies!

How is everyone’s year progressing so far? Mine is going along splendidly. I have so many plans and I hope that they work out.

Of course, sometimes plans go awry, but I’m not going to think about that right now.

This past week was pretty busy for me. I had a lot of work and things around the house that needed my attention. But, I think that I’m finally catching up. Holidays take me out of my routine and, while I like having the down time, I look forward to resuming my normal duties.

Have you ever had a moment in your life where you look into the future and you know whats ahead, but you’re still really nervous about the outcome? Well, I’m at that place right now. There’s something that is in the near future that I will be doing, and I know I’m capable of doing it, but I’m still super nervous I’m going to botch it up.

Then, I have to remember that everything is in God’s hands and no matter how I try to work things, His will prevails. I need to trust Him fully, not sit there and try to control the situation.

You’re probably wondering what I’m talking about. Well, last summer I mentioned that I was auditioning for a competition in Ireland. Well, I didn’t end up making the final top ten videos, so nothing happened.

I recently got an email from a vocal talent company saying that their audition cities had just been announced and that I could sign up for one. Well, one of the cities just happens to be near me. Coincidence? I think not. I’ve been praying very hard about what I should do with my life and I think this is God’s way of giving me an opportunity. I may not make the audition, but I can at least say I tried.

I’m excited and nervous, but mostly grateful for this opportunity. All of this to say, I believe that when we fully trust God, no matter whats going on around us, He blesses it.

Thanks for reading. I know this is a lot of writing, but it’s been sitting a bit heavy on my heart and I wanted to share it with you. Thanks for being such great blog friends. I really appreciate you being there. 😀

If you like what you see, please share!

  • Lovely to 'meet' you, Ashleigh! So glad I stumbled upon your blog, it's so darling. I love your outfit, that hat is way too cute. I know what you mean by being anxious about things in the future, when you know that you *can* do something but yet you still have this uncertainty and "what if something happens" or "what if I do it wrong.." what has always helped me, and what has really helped me so much lately is to meditate on "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" …it's so incredible what that can do for your heart and mind. Rock the auditions, girl! Have a stellar time (:

    • It's nice to meet you too! Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment. I love that verse. It really empowers a person. Thanks so much for your encouragement. 😀
