When I began to write this blog I had a vision for myself and this little ole’ blog, I wanted to write about life experiences, the funny moments of a crazy life or the insights I had over life events that can either make or break you. I felt like I had come to a place in my life where I had gained some wisdom and if there’s one thing that I know it’s that God can use things that you have grown through to help others in their time of need.
But, as I began, I came to a place of fear; fear of judgment, wondering what people would say. Would people get angry? Would they read something into a post that really wasn’t there? Or get offended? Was I opening up family with too much information? I wondered, could I find some balance; share but not share too much? Putting your life out there can cause a great deal of drama and I’ve had enough drama to last a life time so I definitely didn’t want to create more for me or my loved ones.
I decided to pray about it… the direction to take when it comes to writing this blog. I thought of other visions, could I model it after some of the blogs that inspire me? I experimented with that, but there was a great deal of silence on the blog and yet this small voice that would sound off in my head, “you should write about this”, “this is one of those moments that could help someone”. It just came back again and again. God’s like that…he doesn’t give up when he wants you to do something. I seriously didn’t want to be like Jonah and run from God’s idea and yet that is what was happening.
And then it happened…. I got a little inspiration.
So stay tuned…
