I realize that things I write about on my blog could inaccurately capture how I am REALLY doing. I just feel like doing a bit of clarifying.
As most of you know, I am AN OPEN BOOK. I don't ever want to hide anything. I welcome the next level faster than anyone because that's where real is to me. I especially enjoy movies that are REAL and not fictional hollywood box office hits! I have been as open as I can be for a blog, a place where any eyes can read at any given time. I have to protect the privacy of others.
It's a hard balance to talk about struggles without someone misinterpreting it and calling in reinforcements. I tend to only assess on here the difficult things that churn within my mind about my life. I don't typically write about the great cheery moments of my life for fear of people thinking that I have it all together. What if a struggling mom stumbles onto my blog and finds a post that captures only good stuff in my life? What if I'm writing about a recipe instead of the internal beating I may get from reading the Word of God? I am NOT saying that posting good things or sharing recipes is a bad thing to do on a blog. I am saying that I won't do that here because that is not what this if for- for me. I want for God to be glorified through this outlet. I desire this to be a place where people can share in an authentic relationship with a human being that strives in this Satan ruled world to live by the Spirit of God within.
As I do that, the tone that will generally be heard is one of depression, negativity, frustration and anguish. My life is not currently that. I have hardship. Who doesn't? I want to use my hardships to grow and this is a place that helps me to do just that.
Thanks for reading.... To God be the glory for the Great things he does!!!
