First off, it feels so good to be back here. I stopped writing about a year ago, and I could say it’s because I was finishing school, or focusing on more important things. But the truth is, I was struggling with fear: fear that I would never become successful, fear that no one would read my content, fear that I wasn’t as good or creative as other bloggers. It has taken me quite some time to realize that every single one of those statements is a lie. The Lord has really been moving in my heart this summer, constantly reminding me that fear is not from Him, and that his perfect love casts out fear.
He has been teaching me to not only know, but truly believe that I am his daughter, called and chosen, designed by him. This has been an incredible lesson for me in so many ways, and while fear still tries to creep in sometimes and stop me from doing the things I really want to do. I now have the confidence to stop those thoughts before they really get started. And hey, I may never have a super successful or popular blog, but that’s ok. I am not afraid of that, because success is not where I find my happiness and confidence. God is the source of my happiness, confidence and joy. The best part of that is he NEVER changes! I know I am resting in something concrete and there is so much freedom in that!
Which brings me here. I have always wanted to have a blog. For so long, I have let fear get in the way of that, but no more! I have been able to have clarity planning out posts and preparing for the upcoming fall season. I am so excited to be back here writing and taking steps towards what I really want in life! I plan on having a new post every Friday, and towards the end of the year, I will be consistently posting twice a week. If you are reading this, welcome, I am so glad you’re here. I can’t wait to see what this season of life has in store!
You are loved,
