It’s hard to believe that I started this blog roughly 5ish months ago. During that time I’ve really found myself studying to reaffirm my faith.
It all started with the first challenge I took on. You can read about that here if you’d like. I began a bible study with a group of ladies that have been so encouraging and uplifting. I learned so much about myself over this time. The amazing part is I started this blog about 3 days before I found out about the study.
This week is our last week of the study and not surprisingly, another challenge (All About Me) happens to be letter F this week. If you know me well at all you know I don’t believe that is a coincidence. Everything happens for a reason. It’s already written. This reaffirms to me that I am following His path!
I’ve struggled with faith my entire life. Things have occurred in my life that I blamed God for, then I blamed myself and then blamed Him again. I was saved when I was in elementary school. Over the years I strayed for sure. I’m human. I made mistakes.
When my husband and I were dating we came back to our faith and were baptized. His best friend baptized him, then he turned around and baptized me. I turned right around and baptized one of my closest friends.
There is nothing like sharing that moment with someone else. The fact that she asked me to do this for her warmed my heart. It is a bond that we will never forget. We were pregnant together with our firsts. Our oldest children are only weeks apart in age. I don’t live near her but I love getting the chance to follow her life over social media outlets like her blog and Facebook.
I’m now once again finding Him. I’m watching Him show up for me even though I haven’t always been there for Him these past few years. What an amazing God! I love that no matter how far I stray, no matter what I do He is there for me. I have no idea what caused me to want to start a blog but I did. I am so thankful for it!!
