An ExplanationLately I've been wondering if I need to disconnect my private blog from my design site. You know, to keep things separate. And not offend potential clients if their beliefs differ from mine. I haven't decided yet, Jon and I are still discussing it. And if you have any advice or insight to share, I'd love to hear it.
But it does bring me to another point. This blog is about my life. Its a journal of events, feelings, lessons, stories. Its my journey. As I read through the archives, I can see where I was walking close with God, and the times I struggled. I see posts that were written in love, or fear, or hope. This blog, like me, ebbs and flows with spiritual growth and yes, even drought.
As I am coming out of the desert, I feel God working in my soul, in my life. I know that He's awakening my spirit and as such, this blog will reflect that. I imagine the number of posts about God, the Bible, and the things I'm learning will increase. I'd apologize but truth be told, I'm not sorry. I write what I'm passionate about and I'm passionate about my Lord.
I will say that it is never my intent to cast judgment or heap shame on anyone. There's a freaking oar in my own eye, so there's no room to pick out the splinter in yours. Any number of these posts are simply what I am learning, what I believe, what I am passionate about. This is my journal.
I am both excited and nervous as I know I'm on the precipice of some new things. Hard things. But I know it is no accident that I'm starting Beth Moore's James study, at the same time that Jon and I are starting Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University. And whenever God has a word for me, I know I better sit up and pay attention. Growing in Christ usually means some growing pains, and while I know that the end result will be good, the fire is never fun.
