Almost five years ago I found myself in a situation needing to communicate information to masses of people….. for my own sanity.
We had just given birth to a 25 week preemie and keeping everyone updated was a challenge.
And it was then that my blogging days were birthed as well. In the beginning of this journey I used this space to share medical updates with close family and friends. Over the years I have continued to share my heart about life and family. About 2 years ago the Lord laid it on my heart to move my blogging focus to more of a faith based focus. It was a hard transition for me….. but, I accepted HIS call. During that transition, this blog took on a new name and a new format and my writing shifted from self focus to an eternal focus.
These past 2 years have been some of the most blessed times in my writing. Our God has clearly led me and given me words to share with all of you….. my readers.
About 6 months ago I began to struggle with words to convey in this space. And so, I began to pray. Asking God to reveal to me HIS desire for my writing…… and if it should even continue. I would like to say that I waited patiently for HIS reply however, those who know me well know full well that patience is NOT my forte…. I wrestled and I cried and I shouted out to HIM on more than one occasion. I grew frustrated and I wanted to throw the towel in and finally I resigned myself that it just was not my season of writing.
I had reached a place of resolve…. one where I could be at some peace with not sharing words on these pages but one that also waited with hope for what the future would hold.
A few weeks back, after spending many days, weeks and hours on my knees……………. I heard HIM. And, I finally had a clear vision of HIS plan for me.
I know now that my season of writing is NOT finished….. but I do know that for just THIS season, my writing in this space is finished. The Lord has called me to write my chapters in another format these days…. and so, I must be obedient to HIS call.
I will still continue my writings for Sister’s In Bloom during this time. These women have touched my heart deeply and they are 33 of the most beautiful people I know. They encourage me in these days and uphold me when I waver. You will be able to see my Sister’s in Bloom posts right here on my page as well… but, as for writing regular daily and weekly posts here in this space…. it will be quiet for just a season.
I am excited by the opportunities that God is placing in front of me and I will embrace them fully as HE intends for me. And, because our God knows me well…… He has not set me on this journey alone….
I am honored and blessed to come along side one of the most beautiful women I know…… to share story through words.
I ask that you would continue to pray for us as we enter into this new chapter in our writing life. Pray for HIS wisdom and discernment…. and HIS continued blessing. Pray that He alone would give us the words to reach the hearts of women…. near and far.
My friends, you have blessed me BIG here in this cyberspace home of mine…… I cannot wait to share this new journey with you when the time is right……
But for today….
Be BLESSED as you have blessed me!
