Blessings Behind Blogging
If you are a new visitor, you might not know that this blog was started in 2012 after a nudge from the Lord to start writing. It was just one week into our journey of infertility. “Me, a blog?”, I thought. “Ha.” Why would this seem funny or ironic? Well, I’m a financial analyst. I crunch numbers. Let’s just say I NEVER excelled at writing/English (as I’m sure most have picked up on this by my lack of grammar skills).
There is so much more to this space than words on the internet. My heart, as shared repeatedly before, is that hope would be increased, faith would be renewed, and others would be encouraged to seek Jesus while going through a trial or waiting on Him to answer their prayers. This blog has become my ministry. But, there is something else that I have been so blessed with over the past 3.5 years of blogging and that is building relationships with others. I have ‘met’ so many people because of this blog. Some of those relationships have become those that are nearest and dearest to my heart. What I thought was a prompting from the Lord – bringing me way out of my comfort zone – has also turned into many blessings, including newly-formed friendships
As said with my vulnerability post, I don’t do well with one-way relationships. My desire is to get to know you, the reader. I don’t expect to become bff with everyone, but I want to get to know you just as much as you know me. That will look different for each person, but my heart isn’t just to type, rather my heart is to build a relationship.
The only way relationships happen are when we are vulnerable with each other. If you are following along on our journey, I also want you to know that I truly do care about you and your journey too. Please don’t hesitate to say hello and if you have been following awhile thanks again for dedicating time to us and our story!
