It’s been two months since I last shared my heart with you all. I can’t really say for sure what kept me from this place. It’s not that there hasn’t been anything to post, there has been so many subjects come across my mind and heart.
Even still, the time wasn’t quite right.
One thing, over all the others, that I desire for this haven is for it to be a place full of God’s truth and grace. As many of us do, I long to only follow the Spirit’s leading when posting. If I fail to wait on the right time, the words will fall short of the mission set before them. If I wait too long, they will have no bearing, no purpose, no passion.
Over the last couple months, I have experienced high highs and low lows. While there were plenty of post headings that came to mind, there was little substance behind them. Catch phrases that I’d cling to, yet they’d dissipate as quickly as they came.
I feel it’s time to redefine the mission behind this place I’ve called home. I still want it to be a place where we can join together and seek the God we serve. I still desire the vulnerability that has been welcomed.
However, I dream of so much more. I dream of this being a place that we can all call home. That the comment section not be just a place for feel good comments, but rather, more of a discussion board. One with mutual respect that overflows with grace.
Lastly, I continue to dream that this be a place where we come to be challenged, loved, and known.
What this road will look like, I do not know. How this will play out is still a mystery. What I do know is that this small address has shared some of the best and worst times of my adult life. Through it all God has used this to but only uplift myself, but to challenge and convict me as well. That is a journey I look forward to continuing here, with all of you.
We are in this together.
