A new season is in my midst. My heart is being prepped by Jesus towards a new phase. To open a part of my life that I have kept a closed door to and put many dead bolt locks around. He is calling me to a season of writing and sharing. I thought it would come easy to write my story, but writing my personal thoughts are stretching me beyond my limits. I write not because I want to, but because He has asked me. And to be honest, I am scared to death. Scared to publish my personal journeys to the world. God’s sent gentle reminders over and over….It’s not about me 🙂 It’s about Christ IN me, doing a work far beyond my grasp or comprehension. In the next couple weeks I hope to release personal stories on the blog. The journey’s I share will be raw and real, because no one is perfect. And I am tired of reading perfect lives on blogs. Blogs that paint pretty pictures of life and tie hardships into pretty little bows and call it good. That is not my life, nor my story. And I don’t think it’s really anyone’s story if we were being honest. So if you want messy life wrapped into neat boxes and tied with fancy bows, you may want to skip this blog.
As He is asking me to take steps of faith, one thing I’ve learned/am always learning, HE is all that I need.
The Lord is my shepherd;
I have all that I need.
He lets me rest in green meadows;
he leads me beside peaceful streams.
He renews my strength.
He guides me along right paths,
bringing honor to his name.
Even when I walk
through the darkest valley,
I will not be afraid,
for you are close beside me.
Your rod and your staff
protect and comfort me.
You prepare a feast for me
in the presence of my enemies.
You honor me by anointing my head with oil.
My cup overflows with blessings.
Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me
all the days of my life,
and I will live in the house of the Lord
