A New Direction

About a year ago I was praying for direction in my life. More specifically, direction with my writing. I had been writing regularly for awhile, but had shared it with very few people. That is when I started my blog. I felt God leading me to do this as a way for me to continue writing and challenge myself by sharing it with others. When I started doing my daily devotions through my blog I didn't want to start and do it for a couple of days and then fizzle out, so I committed to myself to do it for a year. Then, when I made it a year, I would determine whether I would continue with it, or whether I was to do something else. Well, that year has arrived.

Over the last year God has really spoken to me through my blogging, and I have been very challenged. There were times when it was hard to make sure I made my post, but with God all things are possible, and I made it through faithfully. My prayer is that my blogging has spoken to some of you as I was sharing my heart and what I was getting from God's Word, I know it spoke to me.

More recently there have been other writing projects that God has impressed upon my heart to tackle. Now that I have reached my goal with my blogging I feel that it is time to redirect my focus towards another goal. My first project I am going to take is putting my story on paper. God has brought me through a lot in life and I feel it is time to put that to use to help others.

Now to be clear, I am not done with my blogging. I still plan on doing some writing on here from time to time, just not everyday. Another thing I want to spend more time on is writing my rhymes, which I hope that the few I have shared over the last year have been inspiring. This is something I enjoy doing and I feel that God has been developing in me over the last couple of years.

Last of all I want to thank you all for staying with me through this journey of daily devotions. You have been an inspiration to me to keep going and stick with my commitment. Every time I would think about quitting God would bring someone along that would tell how much it meant to them, so I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I pray that as we go forward you would continue to follow me as I explore new avenues of writing. God bless you all.
