Why Do I Blog?

For years now I have been in the habit of writing in a journal. Then about 5 or 6 years ago I began writing my thoughts, impressions, things God has taught me and sending them to a few close friends. They kept telling me I should try blogging and then allow the women in our church has access to it.

The idea was to allow others to know my heart. As a Women's Ministry Coordinator it's important for me to allow myself to be real, open, and let other's know me. I do this best in written form. So I began my blog.

There are so many hurting women. I don't have all the answers, but I know the One who does. I know how He has gotten me through fires without getting burned and floods without drowning. I share my experiences, my journey, and my reflections on life then just let God use it as he wills.

My one desire is to glorify God and give Him the praise for what He has done in my life. I can take no credit for being where I am today. I know that left to my self I'd probably be dead in a gutter someplace. confidence grows, not in me or my abilities but in what God is able to do. God took a broken, abused, sinful young girl at the age of 16 and set her on a journey to freedom, a journey that, like most of yours, has gone through many valleys and storms. But with each storm that passes I find the next a little less frightening. And I have learned to say along with James, “consider it all joy my brethren when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result so that you may be perfect and complete lacking nothing.”

We all are on a journey, I pray that as I reflection upon mine and openly share it with you that honor and glory will be given to my Father in Heaven.
