2012 was tough. Tougher than any other times I've had to face in my life. It was challenging. It brought me to the lowest depths, deeper and more painful that I could ever imagine. But I pulled through with Him. He pulled me out of the sorrow and shame and reminded me of the reason why I can hold my head up high - that I am still and forever will be His precious daughter. And no one, not anyone, can take that away from me.
And so with all the lessons of 2012, I am equipped to face a new year with new challenges - 2013. And as it turns out, the only thing I need to equip myself with is Him. So I surrender. He will bring me through everything.
