I have been working up the courage to launch this blog for two years.
I still don’t have it, but that Voice speaking to the deepest places in me is stronger and louder than ever before.
Write My words. Lay bare the intricate heart I have given you. Be fully the burning soul I have made you – imperfect and messy and passionate and beautiful.
I tend to think too much, and so I have done all my research on this blogging thing. Find your niche. Focus on one thing. Incorporate this media. Use this host. Don’t use this host. Make a living. Target a certain audience. It has made my head hurt and spin. It has made my heart quiver and almost fail.
But not quite. Because I just want to write, and I want to write what makes my heart come alive. I want to write about the glories and struggles of marriage. I want to write about the victories and defeats of being a mommy. I want to write about the power of music and the pursuit of health and a passion for nations. I want to challenge the next generation and offer wisdom to blossoming leaders.
And above all, I want to write, MUST write about Him – my Love, my Friend, my Jesus.
I can not separate these things. They are all part of me.
So I invite you in to pause and think and savor and grow. But mostly, I hope you will recognize what makes your own dear heart burn and find the courage to run with it.
