I'm 20... 21 in March... and I'm trying to be optimistic as well :)

I'm most thankful in my life for my strong belief in God and honestly don't know where I would be without it. I have had several things happen which made my faith strengthen, however I know that doesn't happen to everyone so I am fortunate and very blessed. But I learned through many trials that it was I who had to reach out in faith to God, and found to my delight that He always 'reaches' back in one way or another! Too often we think God is a Santa Claus or magic genie who gives us what we want if we just ask. Not true--He gives us what we NEED, though we may not know it at the time. It feels good to know He's always there and will give us what we need, when we need it; a Mind so much beyond ours we can't begin to comprehend.
Best wishes and prayers!
