Well ladies, I've almost been blogging for two years! I can't believe it. I love having this little outlet to write, be creative, and share my adventures with anyone who cares to read. But lately, I've been feeling somewhat restless. Which, is one reason I decided to pick up the book "Restless" by Jennie Allen (I highly recommend this read). She has inspired me to admit that I indeed do feel like I am made for something more than how I've been living my life lately. Particularly, my life as a Christian.
The restlessness I speak of is in reference to my desire to serve my heavenly father.
I am convicted that I do not share enough of my faith here. As my blog evolves and grows, I never want to forget one of the main reasons I am able to write about the blessings the Lord has entrusted me with. With all of that being said, I've been seeking and praying about it along and think I may have found an answer.
As we know, our most powerful weapon here in this life is God's word. God has instilled in me the love of doodle and hand lettering and I often wonder how that can be used to honor him.
God I'm not the best, I'm nothing groundbreaking, and this seems insignificant to things that others are doing for you. But I'm not a speaker, I'm not a singer, I'm not a leader, so maybe this is something I can do to bring honor to you? I know that your word says "Whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not unto men;" Colossians 3:23. So I aim to begin serving you with a talent you have given me in hopes it helps and inspires others...
Every week (as my schedule allows) I want to offer a free printable with a special message from God's word. As an encouragement to you, whether you just want to read it here, print it and toss it, stick it in your bible, or pin it beside your workspace, etc...I hope it encourages you through your week and brings honor and glory to Jesus, my Savior who showed me (and anyone else who calls on him) mercy and grace. It's the least I can do for him.
So here it is. My first gift to you. And this first one is in memory of my Aunt Karen, a life long fighter of cancer. No MORE tears:) I hope this encourages and makes your week a little bit brighter as you are equipped with a little message from God's word:)
