This is about my journey to BE what God intended me to be – who He made me to be. Creative, grateful, contented, gracious, transformed, _______? Fill in the blank day by day, Holy Spirit!
I’ll TRY to be as open, vulnerable and authentic as I can be…while not completely cutting open my chest & baring my heart to be sliced & diced… I’m weak, I struggle with being “a good Christian,” I make mistakes. Lots of them. But I have a feeling that you do, too. And I think most of us have the disheartening thought sometimes that everyone else has it together…that we may be in the “losers” club. I’m always encouraged when others tell their stories and the promises that Christ gives them, so I hope you are, too.
I’ve been a journaler for a long time & love to see what comes out of my heart onto paper. I love MORE to see what God reveals to me during & after journaling. When I re-read my writing, I am thrilled to see how God has been working in me, through me, and in spite of me. We can so easily forget. The flip side is sometimes I am heartbroken to see unresolved, unchanged issues that pop up page after page. But always, always, I delight in the chance to share the AMAZING things that He reveals to me!
A lot of my journaling over the past few years has been about how God made me, what His purpose is for me, and how He wants to use me. Part of it is the realization that sometimes I have been able to share pieces that seemed to help someone else’s situation. Then I picked up a book titled The Soul Tells a Story and…..well, guess I’ll tell more about that along the way.
Hope you join me and share your stories. We need each other!
