God has helped me overcome my outward man and now He is working on my inward man. It is as if He is remodeling my entire being. He is magnifying many areas of my life that is now time to work on. Things that are popping up to change have been surprising and humbling, to say the least. Most are things I thought I had a "handle" on but really didn't.
I wanted to start this blog mostly for myself and to journal these golden nuggets God is giving me every day. I don't want them to get lost in some random notebook, forever lost in a stack of papers somewhere. The second reason to start this blog is for my children. There will come a day when I am no longer on this earth and able to speak into my children's lives. I have made many mistakes in life and if I can save them future heartache by them learning through my mistakes, then it will have been all worth it. It makes me happy to know they will be able to read through this journal and see how God moved in our lives through the good and the bad. I want this blog to a be a memorial to God for the great things He has done!
The third reason to start this blog is for other people. I don't know who will end up reading these words, but if anything I write could help another person it would be incredible. I have heard it said that we are one relationship away from our breakthrough. If reading one of my blogs could help another person receive their breakthrough, that would be just like God, wouldn't it? There have to be others out there who have some of the same questions I have about life and are going through some of the same things I am going through.
So, the journey begins, Saturday, July 11th at 12:30 pm, sitting on my creme living room couch, typing on my Mac, listening to Hillsongs "I Will Be Still." God, I commit this project to You. I take your hand and will walk wherever You take me.
