I've never blogged from my phone before but there's a first time for everything. I apologize in advance if the format looks crazy. I'm out of town so I'm not in my typical blogging environment. But I'm itching to write so here I go...
[It did look crazy so I've since changed the format.]
This has been a whirlwind of a week on so many levels, which I'll write more about at another time (so I don't get cramps in my thumbs). Though it's been hard on some levels, there's also been great blessings sprinked through out, which I am so grateful for. I must admit, there are many things that I am uncertain of at this time in my life. It's kind of a weird season. Not bad, just different. However, I am quite certain that God is in control and is working out all the details. And I'm overwhelmed at how much He's blessed me.
Though I am need of clarity in a number of areas in my life, there are actually a few details that have been made clear. Interestingly enough, they are details that pertain to this little blog here. Kinda strange since writing hadn't been on the forefront of my mind.
What was on the forefront of my mind? Family was (is) A full-time job was (is). Clarity about missions was (is). Provision for my student loans and bills was (is). Direction for next steps was (is). Details for my personal blog [that I've been incredibly inconsistent about] was NOT. And yet that's the thing God keeps bringing me to. I knew I was to start writing more, which I've been trying to do. But I also knew that I was to wait til the new year to make some of the changes He'd put on my heart. Why? No idea. But now 2012 is almost here and it's time to follow God's new instructions.
All that to say, new stuff is on the horizon so stay tuned for a few changes here. Hopefully things that will trigger conversation and provide food for thought. Who knows. What I do know is that I'm pretty excited about what God has in store for 2012 - for me and for all of you. He has been so faithful over the past year and I know He has so much more for each of us.
What else do I know? That my hands are falling asleep and I probably won't blog from my phone very often. :)
Have a wonderful New Years weekend. "See" ya here soon!
"Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus."
