Glimpses of His Light

Last week I posted about my quest for a new name. In that search for a new blog title, as well as a season of overall contemplation about my life, I’ve been asking a number of questions about where I’m at in this season and where God would have me to fulfill His purpose. There’s a lot of stuff marinating, that’s for sure. And there’s been a number of things that I’ve intended to blog about but, for one reason or another, between a busy weekend and not feeling too well, it hasn’t happened. Maybe there’s a reason for that.

In any case, I have a new excitement in my heart about the journey; a confident hope. God is at work in my life. That I know. I'm not not totally clear on what exactly that means but it’s a blessing to get little glimpses of His light shining into the areas that have been a little foggy and know that something beautiful is on the horizon.

I want so much to sit here and write but it's late and I need to sign off. (I hoped to actually go to sleep early tonight. I wonder if that will ever happen in my lifetime...). Anyway, I leave you with this great verse and pray that we all would truly be flooded with His light...

"I pray that your hearts will be flooded with light so that you can understand the confident hope he has given to those he called — his holy people who are his rich and glorious inheritance."

Have an awesome Tuesday.

I am glad I read this today. I needed it. I hadn't yet clicked over yet to your blog--I love how it looks! And I love that you made your own domain. Are you preparing for a writing ministry, ahem? ;)

As for a new title, I wish I could help more but I don't have any suggestions. I like what you have now.

Thanks for stopping by, Lis! I appreciate it. Yes, things changed a little bit around here. I have an idea in my head for a new theme but no name yet. Stay tuned! :)

Hi Jennifer,
I dropped by from Incourage. I picked my blog title because it was a nickname from a disciple study. Scrappy (to me) meant being a fighter for God's Kingdom and a survivor. Maybe write down all the words that describe your unique calling, your passion for God, and then play with them and get some feedback.
On another note, I like your writing voice. It's authentic and fresh and I can tell you love your Lord-and that is attractive to readers.
Many blessings,
Samantha Keller

Hi Samantha,

Thanks for visiting! It's been great to 'meet' so many writers through Incourage.
Thank you so much for your encouraging words. That really blessed me.

Your suggestion about the names is a great idea. I'll try it. I look forward to reading your blog! Thanks again. :)
