Blogging is a weird deal. Many days I alternate between fearing to appear as a failure to others or to myself and wondering why I should write anything. Hasn’t everything of worth already been written? Plus, it’s just plain scary to write out my thoughts for people to read.
It brings thoughts and feelings that permeate my life to the surface; they just glare more brightly in the spotlight of increased vulnerability.
And yet, I do it anyway. I love it even though it terrifies me at times. Some days it’s harder to find my footsteps, but I’ve learned so much through chronicling the challenge and sharing my journey of figuring out how to be a godly woman and wife. And when I get the chance to hear about your life, it’s honestly the highlight of my day.
This manifesto of sorts reminded me of all these things and was a big, fat, freeing encouragement when I came across it this week. Go get your cup of coffee and start your Friday off on an inspired foot.
“So stop asking whether or not anyone wants it or needs it, and simply do it because you were made to do it, because it makes you fully alive to do it, because you are working out what God has already worked in, because it matters, because you are called to the ministry of reconciliation, because the seeds might just catch and someday, perhaps, you’ll sit by the banks of river under the spreading branches of a tree of righteousness.”
