I've tried this once before.
Writing a blog.
I wanted to blog about me. I wanted to blog about my crafts. I wanted to blog about God.
Mostly though, I wanted to blog so that I could prove that I was more than what I saw in the mirror.
I wanted my blog to prove that I wasn't as big of a failure as I felt.
I think I wrote about 5 blog posts in the span of 2 and 1/2 years.
During the time between my first blog attempt, and this new one, things have changed. Not in the physical. I'm still pretty much where I was before. I'm still single. I'm still overweight. I'm still thirtysomething. (although I am much closer to forty than I was before) Truth be told, some might say that things for me aren't 'better'.
So what was this big change?
I've come to realize that I have more value than I ever gave myself credit for, and that I am not a failure. I know now, that what I saw as failure, God saw as good.
"...That's why we can be so sure that every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good."
Romans 8:28 The Message
Everything in my life is not perfect....but it is God's to make good. And I know who I am in Him.
Thanks for starting this journey with me. I hope you enjoy the ride!
