shores of loneliness

that girl is me. i have always loved this picture. it shows my thirst for something more. dreams always pulsing on the horizon. new life ready to be discovered. adventure lives inside of me. there are pros and cons to this personality. in all honesty, i get restless real quick. and when i don't see any of my dreams for a long, long time, i get disappointed. i grow weary and tired of waiting. i desire to know the meaning of the word Faith. hebrews 11:1 says, "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." isn't that thing about dreams? we can't always see evidence of them but we know they are going to happen one day in our lives. we must hold onto the promises of God for He is the only thing sure and true. i never want to think it is a waste to dream or to look at the horizon. God made me to be a dreamer, an adventurer, and that's just it. i must trust and hold onto His hand and He will walk with me step by step along the shore. today it feels like the shores of loneliness. but i know i'm not alone. He has my hand held and He is walking next to me, talking with me and saying, "you are not alone."

i have found a Love

my first post. Wow..it seems so daunting. now that i've finally created a blog wouldn't you know it, but my mind goes blank. and maybe that's okay. i will just start typing and see what wonderful things come of it.

unbelievably, i turn 27 this week and i'm learning even more to trust in my Father God's unfailing Love. in His unwavering guidance. i'm under His protection and care. i am learning to swim in the deep waters of His beautiful Grace. i need to breathe in His rest and learn the meaning of that word.

i want this blog to bring peace and rest, even if i'm the only one who ever reads it. that's okay too. but if anyone does ever read it, i want each post to bring a smile or a laugh and may it radiate joy. i hope that i could encourage or inspire someone to pursue their dreams with greater fervency than ever before.

welcome. i have yet to discover all of who i am for i am still diving deeper into the things of Christ. but i will not hold back. i don't want to sound put together or perfect. you know at times, I am so busy doing and running that I miss the little moments. those are the moments we should live for. a smile, a hug, a kind word, something funny, or a sunrise across the horizon. at times, i miss His still, small voice that says, "daughter, you don't have to do. just be with Me. i love you with an Everlasting Love. be still and wait with me today."

enjoy each moment that comes to you today. take it moment by moment.
