Have you ever been working on something and then the time comes to share it with everyone else and you get butterflies in your stomach? The nerves set in and you have just a ball of emotions? Yep that’s me right now as I sit and type this first blog knowing that within a matter of minutes and the hit of a button my entire world will be at your fingertips. I’m excited and nervous to share the day-to-day happenings and chaos that goes on in our crazy family. I pray with all that I am that we can laugh together, cry together, and above all grow in the Lord together. The Lord has given me a love to write and to share and with that this blog has been created. It’s His not mine and I will strive with each post to glorify Him. I’m beyond humbled that He has guided me to this point and I look forward to the journey that is ahead. He tells us in Jeremiah:
“For I know the plans I have for you”—this is the Lord’s declaration—“plans for your welfare, not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope” ~ Jeremiah 29:11
I find peace and excitement knowing that even though I cannot see each step that lies ahead God knows and has crafted each and every one. Is there something you have been praying about or feeling God leading you to however you have been holding back due to fear or discouragement? Then remember what He tells us in Joshua:
“Haven’t I commanded you: be strong and courageous? Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” ~Joshua 1:9
Let go and let God. Lay it at His feet and He will take full control. These verses and many, many prayers got me and this blog right here. I have no idea what lies ahead but knowing that God is in full control leaves me beyond excited. Thank you for taking this journey with me. If you like what you read and enjoy it then please feel free to share it with others. Alright…here goes…let’s see what God has in store!
