Here I sit on a gorgeous Wednesday morning. It’s almost 8a.m. and my daughter will be up soon. We are going to make homemade whole wheat crackers to take with us to a friends house today. We are finishing up some baby shower planning for the week.
But my heart is longing to put pen to paper. The more I read here lately and immerse myself in God, the more I want to dig in and just write. My heart is longing to get started on that thing that God wants me to do.
So why have I not started yet?
I think part of me is still fearful of rejection. Of not being good enough. Of not being able to walk in this calling He has placed on my life. I am so afraid I will screw it up.
I can hear all those what if’s playing over and over again in my head. But then I hear HIS voice — the one that really matters reminding me this —
I am enough.
I am enough regardless of whether I do another thing in my life.
I don’t have to try to be the perfect wife, mother, daughter to the most high God. All He wants me to do is to just be.
So at this moment in my life, I am trying desperately to breathe Him in. I am stepping back from a lot that is going on in my life right now and reassessing where I am.
There are big changes coming to this blog. I want it to be a place where I write more and share my heart. I want to encourage other women in their walk with Christ — in their walk as wives and mothers and to let you all know that we are in this together.
In fact, this verse spoke highly to me yesterday and it is the one I am clinging to this week.
I plan on doing a lot of readjusting here and I hope that you hang with me as I do that. I just want to focus on this lovely calling that God has placed in my life and has asked me to do. I want to write. I want to share with you. I want to be able to encourage you to keep on keeping on.
Where are you at right now in life? What is it that God is asking you to do that you are hesitant to step out and accomplish?
