I am not smart enough to do this.
I do not have a powerful story that will reach people.
I am a mess with an even messier back story.
I am weak.
I am not a good vessel.
The truth is, no I am not able and I am not capable. I should not be writing this blog and connecting with you right now. I have no right to be ministering to you.
I am not ready.
However, thank goodness this is not about me because I will never be ready. If God only ever used us once we were ready to stand on our own, we would run off without Him to do His work. Where is the faith building in that?
God has brought me here. He has brought you here. I believe that you are looking at this page right now for a reason.
What is going on in your life today?
Do you feel ashamed, inadequate, scared, defeated, trapped, useless, less than, unloved, vulnerable?
It’s ok. You can be honest here. I can totally relate. I have been in your spot so many times.
The truth is, the Christian life is not a perfect one. It is not a life in which we are shielded from problems and pain. Oh, how often have I discovered that? Have you?
Well, sister, it’s like this: You and I can not avoid life issues, but we sure can go up against them with a few goodies in our makeup bag. (That is where I hide all of my important stuff! Extra mascara, cuticle trimmer, my favorite ponytail holder and of course some essential oil!)
What are our goodies?
They are exactly the kind of things that we talk about here.
I really want to be your friend. I want to connect with you and develop a relationship with you like a sister.
I have a heart for women…for you.
Since I am from the South, I am all about some front porch sitting, rocking chair rocking and sweet tea sipping. I would love for you to join me on my virtual front porch and let’s just talk.
Let’s pour our hearts out to each other. Discuss our victories and failures. Whisper our longings and hopes. Let’s laugh until our sides hurt, cry our eyes out, pray for each other and hold each other accountable.
This community is my calling and the women here are my joy. I would so much love for you to be a part of it too!
You can come just as you are. No makeup or pedicures required. In fact, I am all about top knots and yoga pants!
Feel comfortable here. Be yourself here. Refresh your soul with the promises of God here. Find encouragement, a renewed outlook and a little bit of fun! I can not wait to see where God takes us!
