Well, today I took the plunge into blogging. I really have to thank my friend, Jen Henson for this. I have been playing with the idea of it all but until I saw her take the leap, I had been holding back. If you know me at all, which I'm sure you do or you won't be here, you know I never cease for things to say. Sometimes I have good things to say and sometimes it is just ramblings.
However, I am at a point in my life where I love it. I love how I am watching God move in my life as I seek Him more. My blog is Psalm 105:4 which says simply "Seek the Lord, and His strength: Seek His face evermore." It is my belief that if we do this, truly do this, He will show us the changes we need to make in our life. It is my belief that God created us with the desire within to serve Him with all we are. Some of us get lost along the way, caught up in a variety of things: family, love, work, friendships, school and even religion.
See, religion is not a relationship with Jesus Christ. Religion is a set of ideals that people profess to believe, and truly, probably all religions have good points in them somewhere. It is not my desire to be religious. It is my desire to seek God's face in my life, so that other people can see Him when they see me. I read a quote once that said - "Don't worry about what others think of you, only worry about what others think of Him when they think of you".
Many people reading this have known me in stages of my life, so to some of you, I say sorry. I am sorry you knew me when I did not have this outlook on life because you knew a way different me than I am today. For those who have watched me change, I say thank you. Thank you for being in my life when I was the metamorphasis of my life. There are many things I probably should have done different, but that is in the past. For those who just know me now, I say you are lucky. The old me was not near as fun and way more high strung (if you could imagine that). Very quick to anger and opinionated to the point of being irritating.
I am thankful that God has seen fit to bring me down the path of life He chose for me. The mistakes of the pasts help to shape my decisions for my future and I am thankful for Every scar and every hurt that have made me who I am today, these things have made me. . . . a God Seeker.
Have a blessed day!
