Join me on this journey and let’s discover God’s plan – together!
In August of 2015 I issued this invitation to visitors to my new website. As I began to post my blogs, I received advice from virtually everywhere. “You must have a focus – without it you will sacrifice readers – they won’t stick with you,” blah blah blah. Ever a contrarian, I decided to write whatever came into my mind – a moment in time, a memory or an insight that came to me in the middle of the night.
That’s why I called my blog posts Tiny Stories from My Mind – because that’s what they are. I have read countless posts from other bloggers on recipes, DYI projects, spirituality, writing, publishing or career advice. They are wonderful and I admire their focus.
But for me, some 35 blogs posts later I remain at the same spot. I remain me – a work in progress on my amazing journey with my Lord.
I am discovering that many people experienced what I have – that meeting your life partner, focusing on career and family leaves very little time for self-evaluation or self-discovery. Have you ever felt this way? As if the demands of your life, the duties and obligations over the years have drained the true essence of YOU.
There’s no six-step plan or formula to follow, but there is one tried and true process for rediscovering your God-given identify. Spending time in God’s Word seeking out the Lord’s direction for your life is the pathway to success.
As a result of my recommitment to serve the Lord with my life and my newly-defined mission to encourage others, as expressed by St. Paul in 2 Corinthians 1:3-4* I have embarked on a much different kind of journey. Please, won’t you join me as we discover God’s plan for our lives together?
To God Alone Be the Glory!
*“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.”
