Awaiting Adventure

For a while I've been feeling led to write more. Not just to tell you what's happening in our lives, but meatier stuff. I thought about writing things that are floating around in my head, or that come to me throughout the day. However, my desire is to write things that cause you to think. To ponder. To pray.

Ever since I can remember, I've wanted to make a difference. I've wanted to leave my mark on my community, my world. In my own small world, I believe I have made a difference. However, I feel the need to do more. I want to write a blog that has meaning. That is inspiring, witty, and true. That glorifies God.

I believe in God. And I believe He has placed me here for a purpose. Is my purpose to write? Maybe. Is my purpose to change the world with my writing? Maybe. Is my purpose to share my life with you through writing? Possibly. Is my purpose to share His love with you? Absolutely.

So, while my writings might not always be about my spiritual musings, I will be asking for divine guidance. For I believe that to do something well, one needs guidance. I know that I do my best when I work within the talents my Heavenly Father has blessed me with. Is writing one of them? We'll find out! What I know is that "I can do everything through him who gives me strength." Phil 4:13

So, friends, I hope that something I write will touch you. Will cause you to think. Will inspire and encourage you. Will cause you to pray.

Looking forward to our new adventure together,

    I must admit I chuckled to myself when I see you ended your post with beginning a new "adventure" - I know it's a cliche but a little too ironic following after a MOPS year!
