Yesterday I read one of the many Blogs and Devotionals that I follow and I loved it so much it gave me an idea for a Blog.
The Blogger wrote the following:
“For me, part of becoming is sharing with others where I have been, where I am now, and where I am going on this journey to be more like Jesus. Writing has always been part of who I am, but, after I became a mom, I buried that piece of me.”
I loved this, YES; sharing with others helps me realize where I stand, what I should change and who I have become. My husband once criticized the fact that I “share”; the fact that those special moments are no longer special if the world knows about them. I thought about it and then sat back and re-thought what I write about. Often I question; when is it too much and how often should I share. A friend once joked, “Are you the “Official Facebook Blogger” now?” Yes and NO, I Blog to release, to identify, to be, to love, to express and to grow! I Blog about my Faith, my likes and dislikes, my life, my son, my job, my husband, and so many other topics. I may not get paid and at times the blog may not get read, but I love it. I Blog to be the "Official Connie’s Life Blogger"! I don’t think that there is anything wrong with that, I love God, my family and my friends. As long as one person reads and tells me that they like it, that it helps them, that it changed them, that’s all it takes…for me at least.
The Blogger then went on to write:
“My desire is not to become a Christian writer...it is to become a woman of unshakable faith who writes, not for her own fame, but to bring glory to the King Eternal.”
That totally set me back and all I could think was, YES! I don’t want to preach and predict, in that way at least, I just want to Praise and be real! I hope that I am doing that, and that through my writing I can bring glory to the one who is most important, our almighty Lord!
She then went on to pose the following questions:
“Who have you been? Who are you now?
Who are you becoming? What are your passions?
And have lies and fear ever stopped you from the pursuit of those passions?”
Who have I been:
A profane speaker
A Selfish girl
An Ungrateful child
An Unappreciative daughter
A Disloyal friend
An Unhappy person
A Jealous woman
A Bitter Employee
An Angry sister
Who am I now:
I am someone who can’t lie but be honest enough to receive truth
A woman who can keep to herself and not speak too much about the rest
A speaker of Love
An unselfish mother and wife
A loving and understanding daughter
A consoler and counselor
A TRUE friend of Godly women
A secure and confidant woman of Faith
A content heart with the Holy spirit laid across my life
A FAITHFUL sister of Christ
Forgiven and Loved!
Who am I becoming:
Whoever the Lord wants me to be, wholeheartedly and openly receptive to His NEVER failing or ending Love!
What are my passions:
My Husband and Son
And have lies and fear ever stopped you from the pursuit of those passions:
Nothing that is faced with God in your heart is stopped…. I live for Him, wait for Him and Pursue all through Him.
Philippians 4:13 (New Living Translation)
13 For I can do everything through Christ,[a] who gives me strength.
