One Year

Today, I am celebrating an anniversary.

One year ago today, I created this blog.

One year ago today, I cried out to Jesus in the midst of my despair and begged Him to give me peace.  He had given me Grace… but I needed peace.  Despite the forgiveness and grace that had been poured down on me, I was still drowning in shame and guilt.  I was trying to wipe away stains of sin that He had already washed clean… and I needed peace.

Walk Humbly with God gave me a voice.  I had prayed, I had cried, and I had begged… but I thought my God wasn’t listening.  Or maybe He was punishing… so I turned to writing.  The writing offered me a much-needed catharsis.  The blog introduced me to other writers, many of whom have become friends.  These writers wrote words that spoke God’s message directly to my heart.  And as this blog grew, I grew.

I discovered that God forgave me as soon as I asked.  He washed my sins away… white as snow.  The stains I was trying so hard to wipe away were already gone.  He was not punishing me, He was loving me through the pain.  He was not only listening to my cries, He was preparing my heart for the next step of my journey.

My blog is a year old.  I have learned a lot about myself.  I have learned a lot about blogging.  I have learned a lot about God and my relationship with Him.

I am so thankful for this venue.  It allows me to share, to vent, to celebrate, and to praise!  This is one year down, and I am looking forward to what God may have in store for me and this little blog in the future.  Thank you, dear friend, for joining me on the journey!!
