I took a while away from the blog.. and all social media. Things have seemed pretty chaotic and I admit that I have felt emotional and a bit confused. There is so much division and I really needed to step away from the world and step into God’s word. I had planned on making January my spending freeze but I didn’t even snap one pic or post to Instagram once. I just didn’t feel it. I just needed to refocus- on God’s truth, God’s love, God’s promises, and God’s power. For some reason my heart forgot all of that and allowed so much worry to infiltrate.
I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with this blog… what I wanted to focus on. I wasn’t sure where my heart was with all of it. As I thought about it and prayed about it I came to a realization. I don’t have to have it all planned out. I love writing and sharing what’s on my heart. I love food and sharing what we love to eat and cook and buy. I love being a mom and a wife and sharing my struggles and successes. So that is what I am going to do- just share. For awhile I will only be blogging. I feel that with the direction social media has been going I don’t want to be a part of it at the moment even though it is useful for growing my blog. I just do not feel right using something that I don’t agree with morally at the moment.
These last weeks have been so good for my heart. God has reminded me who He is- and who I am- and what’s important. One of my big goals for this year is to be in His work a lot. Memorize, dig in, live it out. My word for this year is habits and one of the main habits I am working on is my prayer and quiet time. Every day God took me to the exact scripture I needed to read. The Holy Spirit spoke to me daily and brought me to tears multiple times. I shared with a friend on a recent coffee date that I have deeply and heavily felt the spirit lately… like physically felt him on my heart. I am not alone. You are not alone. This world is not alone. Our creator is always and forever present and in charge. The noise of this world can sometimes over shadow that. But you can’t let it. I won’t let it.
What is God going to share with you in scripture today?
