these thoughts on what i am truly blogging for keep floating around in mind. partially because of blog sugar, partially because of His grace for me every day.
this isn't a post that is hard for me to write. for many, many people it is though. and i get it. oh, do i get it. family issues, marriage issues, personal issues, uncertainty, fear, trying to keep your blog on "topic", not wanting to go there… there are so many things that could interfere with sharing one's faith. for me, blogging about my faith comes naturally. i am a pretty open person and some may even say i'm a little out spoken or opinionated… how dare them.
for someone who blogs as much as i do, who shares as much as i do, to NOT blog about my faith would be hard for me. i would feel like i was living a lie, and that i was hiding something. hiding the very thing that defines who i am.
you see, Jesus Christ is whole reason i am here on this earth. He is the whole reason that i live, the reason i will go on to live eternally with Him. Jesus Christ defines who i am. not being a mom, not being a wife, not being a daughter, sister, or friend. not liking photography, not liking home decor, or fabulous DIYs, and certainly not being a blogger. it is HIM. though i am sure it is not always the case, i would pray that the thing people remember most about me is a little bit of Jesus in me.
i don't know who's reading my words each and every day. i don't know what their struggle is, or what their story is. but i do know that i need His grace and love just as much as any other person. i do know that He died for you and He died for me. and for me, if i didn't share the gospel of Jesus Christ right here, i wouldn't be using this blog for what i am being called to use it for.
it is so much bigger than myself.
