So I have a blog…now what?

Has God ever whispered something to you?  Something that made you stop and say, “Are you sure??”  That’s how I felt when I heard God whisper…start a blog.  What exactly is a blog…what do you do with it?  My first thought was “I don’t know nothing about birthin’ no blog.”  And then there was “Ain’t nobody got time for that!”  But all joking aside, I really have no idea what I’m doing :-).  I’m just trying to be obedient to that whisper.

God has been with me on many journeys in my life.  I’ve dealt with mental illness and alcoholism in my family.  I lost my mom suddenly to a brain aneurysm when I was 28.  I’ve had an auto immune disease for the last 19 years.  All of these have been difficult situations that stretched me and helped me grow into the person that I am today.

Six years ago, my life was turned upside down.  Something I never expected.  The journey has not been easy and the road sometimes very unclear.  I am so grateful that God is in my life and He guided my path.  I felt Him tell me that everything would be ok.  But the “ok” was totally different than what I expected.  I can say that this journey has been the most difficult because it was the first one that caused a crisis in my faith.  I hope to unfold this journey through this blog.  My hope is that it will help someone who has gone through something similar.

God is faithful.  He never forsakes us.

1 Corinthians 16:13-14  (MSG)

13-14 Keep your eyes open, hold tight to your convictions, give it all you’ve got, be resolute, and love without stopping.

Why….because love matters.  I hope you join me on this journey.
