2016 was a surprising year for me, but as always the Lord was gracious and merciful. 2016 went nothing like I thought it would but it was one of the best years of my life. I thought that it would be a normal year for me, that I would continue to work in ministry, grow friendship and get closer to family oh that I would be still living in California. On August 15 I moved from northern California to Jacksonville Florida. That was the biggest and most surprising event that happened to me this year. I have no complaints for 2016. I wouldn’t change anything that happened all of it prepared me for this season in my life. This past year I learned some of the things that I knew of but didn’t actually believe in or was fully invested in. 2016 made me a believer of those things and I will try my best to show people that these will help them in the future. Here are 5 things 2016 thought me.
