I am a wife to a great husband and a mother of two fantastic boys, who are now grown men. We are all on this adventure called life together. We all love Jesus and have even moved cities because He asked us to. I love my life, it has never been boring!! 😉 The current funny for me is that I don’t like to write and here I am writing.
Many of my friends have asked me, “Why a blog?” I began this blog a few years ago. I felt prompted to have an outlet for things I felt led to share. In no way did I know that in December of 2014 this would become an open journal for others to read my experiences with the Lord and how He was changing me from the inside out. My life experiences coupled with how God was teaching me a very new way to see Him and the ways of His Kingdom is what you will see in my posts. Never did I think that having an open life journal to share would cause such an upheaval in my life, but it has all been very freeing for myself and my family. Some of these experiences are inside this blog. It is simply real life and real life isn’t always perfect or pretty, it is life. Yet, as always good comes out of situations for those that love God and are called according to His design and purpose that were meant for your demise.
I love how Paul states to the Galatians,“What actually took place is this: I tried keeping rules and working my head off to please God, and it didn’t work. So I quit being a “law man” so that I could be God’s man. Christ’s life showed me how, and enabled me to do it. I identified myself completely with him. Indeed, I have been crucified with Christ. My ego is no longer central. It is no longer important that I appear righteous before you or have your good opinion, and I am no longer driven to impress God. Christ lives in me. The life you see me living is not “mine,” but it is lived by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. I am not going to go back on that. Is it not clear to you that to go back to that old rule-keeping, peer-pleasing religion would be an abandonment of everything personal and free in my relationship with God? I refuse to do that, to repudiate God’s grace. If a living relationship with God could come by rule-keeping, then Christ died unnecessarily.”Galatians 2:19-21 MSG
See, I was Paul and a great law woman I was and then God in His good mercy answered a prayer I had prayed for a few years, to know Him like He knows me and the adventure began and my first post It is Time to Let Go of the Rules-Otherwise Known as the Law, was the beginning of my journey to be God’s woman. The Lord asked me to share openly my process and here it is in this blog. My ups, downs and what the Lord has shown me through this adventure thus far. Has this been easy, certainly not. Has it been worth it, MOST DEFINITELY. I wouldn’t change anything for the world because my family and I are living in the freedom that Christ so willingly died for.
I hope you find what I write will inspire you, make you think, or propel you forward into a deeper Love with our Heavenly Father, His Beautiful Son and our Comforter, Teacher and our Promise the Holy Spirit.
