Starting these pieces of writing has been more challenging than I ever expected. Here I am, trying to empower people to seek truth, freedom, and renewal in their lives and wardrobe; yet, I am in need of these same revelations.
In my attempt to encourage readers to let go of what people think; there are still days I hold on. As I seek to encourage a healthy thought life; I am fighting every day to speak truth into my own mind. As I encourage readers to break out of their comfort zone, redefine boundaries, and reach into new waters of freedom; I reminisce on all the times I’ve lived in immense captivity.
Writing before I’ve shared parts of my story, short summaries of sermons I’ve enjoyed, and revelations I’ve had in my own seasons; but for this series, I wanted to do something different. This blog series is meant for more.
Within the words, I write I want to share what God says regarding these topics. Not because they’re easy to write, because I like them, or that I think they’ll be attractive to readers, but instead, because I feel sincerely called to them.
The ideas I have, the beliefs I hold, and the concepts I share are still imperfect, incomplete, and perhaps not even relevant to you. Still, I believe there’s power to be found between the lines. I believe God can speak through me and that He has placed this on my heart for a purpose. For that reason alone – I am grateful, excited, and deeply honored to make this attempt.
My hope is that these pages become real to you; that they help, inspire, encourage, and bring light to you. I pray that they break through to you, and replace any insecurity in your life with beauty, kindness, and hope.
As we dive in together to discover what God has, may our efforts be blessed. May the search for truth, freedom, as renewal not stop here. May this act as a small spark that starts a great fire within us. May it warm us in every season to come.
