You know how Taylor Swift loves the number 13? My number is eight. It’s a corny story, but JC Chasez (*NSYNC) was born August 8th, and since he was my favorite member I was hooked on the number eight. Ever since then, it’s been a part of my life through sports, my career, my relationships, etc. Today, the 8th, was particularly interesting. I have been praying a lot lately to God about giving me peace about my life and leading me in the right direction. I’ve been asking for his patience and for him to guide me; I’ve been repeating Psalm 22:8 (Commit yourself to the Lord; let Him deliver). Today, I woke up and Mastin Kipp, the guy who writes @TheDailyLove, had a great affirmation that I think everyone can benefit from:
So today I went to work and was minding my own business and not one but four crazy blessings were bestowed upon me. It’s really mysterious how God works, and a lot of what happened to me is pretty comical yet shocking. Kind of like “when it rains, it pours.” I have no idea what is going on, but I’m not going to complain. Thank you God for giving me such a great family, wonderful friends and a strong faith. Hopefully I’ll be able to bestow huge blessings to these people who have supported me for so long.
