“My purpose is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.”
When I write life begins to make a little more sense to me. What I usually realize is that I’m not alone in my struggles. We do share many of the same battles in life. And in this little online blog space, my desire is that we walk away feeling encouraged in our faith and inspired to walk closer to the Lord. I pray that we learn to see God in every moment of our days and live out our days with intentional purpose.
My writings will expose my heart. You will not read a picture of perfection, you will not read how I have it all figured out. You will see my flaws and failures. You will see transparency and authenticity. You will see me clinging to Christ, who has redeemed me.
Life is but a mist. A collection of fleeting moments.
We have one chance at this thing called life. We can choose to fly through life barely hanging on simply trying to survive each day, frantic to catch our breath, and desperate for relief. Or we can embrace it, and face it with intentional purpose. When we choose the latter, we suddenly see we are surrounded by moments and experiences reserved just for us. And in each moment, God has a message for us.
A few bits of information about me. I’m married to my high school sweetheart. We have 3 super handsome dudes and live in North Carolina. I love to read. I run, but I don’t love to run. I love to work on my scrapbooks, but I’m years behind. One day. I used to be extremely organized and efficient. I’m ok with the change. My favorite part of the day is 5 am when I slip downstairs to the coffee maker and spend the quiet part of the morning alone with God. And silence.
