Wow! It’s December 1st! One of my favorite months of the year! So much to celebrate and so much family time!!
I took a break from blogging over the last month and I have missed it dearly. I am excited to share my heart again with all of you and be right where God wants me to be. I needed much time in a season of stillness. It’s hard for me to be still and with my busy mama and work schedule just like all of you know so well, I felt it was so important to share my heart more where it was needed this last month with my children and my husband. Sometimes I am not able to balance my world of blogging and my family and I used to struggle with that so much that I felt discouraged. Praying about it though refreshed my soul to know that it’s ok to be not able to balance and take a break and it actually strengthens both of those worlds for me. It seems kind of crazy when I share so much about my family and faith and then I can’t seem to balance. But then I remember God’s word etched in my heart that he is faithful and he will provide what I need.
Sometimes we are faced with things that doesn’t seem possible to conquer. In the past I would cling to fear and hide from what seemed impossible covered in lies. Through these really hard times and many years later my faith has grown and I learned to trust God more. My faith became my rock and I was able to face storms and keep my focus on God and what he wants for me. While my faith is challenged my trust in him that only he can move that mountains that seem impossible. I must keep my focus on God and what he wants for me.
Cling to him beautiful soul. He is the mountain mover that washes away my fear. Through these seasons of my faith growing, storms raging, and mountains moving I have met some of the most beautiful souls. They have encouraged me and challenged me to be bold in my faith, to walk humbly, and to plant seeds. It is within those moments that a fire in my soul was set to share my stories and encourage others as well. When the storms come, and they will, and you can and are meant to adjust your sails. I read a book a few years ago by John Ortberg If you want to walk on water, you have to get out of the boat. I read this with a fearful heart and was challenged to be more like Peter. Peter could have stayed in his boat but then he would have never walked on water. You can stay in your boat and you might never know the amazing things God can do in your life if you just trust him. God is calling you to walk on water. No matter how big or small it may seem to you, it is his purpose of you for his glory.
