When I began writing this blog, almost five years ago, I had no idea what I was doing. I enjoyed reading others’ posts. I made some new good friends – some disappeared along the way – some even went to heaven. I was concerned about running into doctrinal theology and I’m not an expert in even the smallest way. Still, I began writing things that had a bearing on my life and eventually my sharing started to catch on. I began to realize I wasn’t the only one experiencing difficulties. I wasn’t alone in my journey. I had a whole group of friends, I’d never met and probably won’t, but I became part of an exceptional community of believers.
We may not always agree, but our words are often helpful and that was my original intent with this blog. When we try to accomplish things, the best way to do so successfully is to ask for God’s guidance. We go to the place where His truth is made clear to us . We read and study the Bible. We go to church. We participate in worship and praise. We share the Word with our family and use it as a manual for our lives. It all comes back to our relationship with the one who created us.
We will never walk alone if we put our confidence in Him. As I’ve grown older, I become more aware of His presence in my life. I can look back at difficulties endured and realize He was there all the time. We have His promise to never leave us – to guide us – enrich us – encourage and inspire us to do things we thought we never could.
God has designed a perfect plan for our lives. It will be filled with obstacles and successes. He will lift us out of depression and anxiety. He can soothe a breaking heart. He will give rest to those who grieve and comfort to those who weep. He will support us every step of the way and when we reach our final destination, He will welcome us into His perfect kingdom, where life goes on forever.
We are experiencing the walk, but He has mapped the entire journey out for us and is with us all the way.
