My journal became a best friend this past fall. Yes, I've had many journals written going back to when I was 8, but it was only this past year that I learned to let go and just write. Sometimes I felt like I couldn't share all that was on my heart and I'd just store it all up inside me which then led to being overwhelmed. I had countless nights that I'd spend crying because I felt alone yet I always knew I wasn't. I went through a season of learning to trust God with all that I am. I believe that true faith isn't when everything is going right, it's when you are falling apart, afraid, hurt and crying that you find a sense of peace knowing that through Jesus, it'll be alright. He never gives anything more than we can handle.
I know I'm late with this, but I want this blog to change. I want it to be a weekly part of my life. A place that I can share what's going on in my heart and all that I'm learning. I hope in some way I can be an encouragement to just a single person. If that happens, this blog is all worth it. My goal in life is to share Christ's love with those I meet and be an encouragement in their lives. My heart's desire is to know God more each and every day.
I know I'm clearly not the best blogger, but hopefully even if I write once a month, it's meaningful and you're able to learn who I really am. I only ever want to be authentic. Sharing the good, but also the bad. I want to let people in, and be there for them. I don't want to look like life is perfect for me, because it isn't. I wouldn't want it any other way though because I learn most when I am going through something. Trials are blessings in disguise. There's a song that I love called Blessings and I'd like to share it with you today.
I pray that even if you're going through something, know that you aren't alone. Jesus is always there and ready to hear from you.
From my heart,
