an insecurity. You see, i've never really believed that i was worthy to blog. I figured there were enough people out there typing up their every notion and sending it out into the void to be read by, well... no one.
But i am a recent college graduate working in the coffee buzz. And though that may not seem like much of a reason to begin a blog... for me, it changes everything. Because right now, everything in my life is changing. I live in a new house, with a new job, and a new routine. I no longer attend college, nor do I live in the same zip code as my boyfriend. The sphere of those that influence me is shifting as well as that of the people i influence. And, for the first time in years, i live in the same state as my parents, yet my youngest sisters are just beginning to wander out on their own. The reality that nothing will remain the same seems to be waiting around every corner just waiting for me to turn so it can pop out shouting boo! and giggling as i start with fear.
and still... in the midst of what i feel is best described as turbulent, i feel secure. I know that "...in all these things we are more than conquerors...." (Rom. 8:37). I know that my days will be spent conquering this temperamental life through Jesus Christ. As emotional as that reason may be it is the truth. I felt that as i delve into this new year, i may have a thought or two or a revelation or five in my walk with the Lord that would be edifying for me to process and encouraging for someone to read. May this exploration in my thoughts & theology be for our good and His glory.
