A Time For Everything: Time to Write

It's been a while since I've had the urge to pick up the blogger hat and try it on again. I know my desire to write will never be smothered, I just feel like haven't found my perfect outlet. But for some reason, the same instincts that told me to lay blogging aside over a year ago has resurfaced and is now telling me it's time to write. I'm not sure that means I have anything more interesting to say than I did a year ago, but let's give this thing a whirl.

The past year and a half or so has been extremely tough on my little family. We've walked through businesses starting and shutting down, financial highs and super scary lows, relational rollercoasters, obligations and responsibilities above and beyond what we were equipped to handle, and even a recent death in the family. All these things have left me feeling completely drained, emotionaly  bankrupt. I dare not say "rock bottom," but it's not been easy in the least.

Yet even through all this, I feel like I've seen God's hand through each and every little step in our journey. When we have been at our lowest, it was if there was a small whisper of hope to remind us, "God's got this." And He always did! When we thought we were facing our "worst case scenarios," He showed up on our behalf. Things always fell into place just when we needed it, but not before we thought it couldn't get any more desperate.

When I've had all these things that have gone on in my life where God has shown up in a big way, it's hard to keep that to myself. Maybe that's why I feel like I need to write. I'm not sure if we are out of our storm yet or if there is another one just on the horizon, but I do know that no matter what, God is on our side. No matter how many times I fail Him, He is ever faithful!

I'm not sure where this is all going. I just feel like it's time to write, so that's what I'm going to do. Write about anything, everything, but mostly of the amazing things God has done, is doing, and continues to do in my life. I hope that through this messy journey I call life, you can find some encouragement and maybe a giggle or two along the way! Hope to see you back here soon!

(Ecclesiastes 3:1-8)
