Now that i’ve gotten my feet wet, and kind of figured out this ‘blogging thing i figured i would write about what really inspired me to take this blogging journey. Let’s start by saying 2014 was truly a whirlwind year. It was filled with many happy moments yet still it was a very trying time for me. My father experienced a near death situation ( we thank God for His mercy) which brought to light to some still unexplained health concerns and i had to really re-evaluate my life and its purpose. What am I here for? What is it that you want from me God?
We’ve all heard the term ” having a come to Jesus moment” ( Maybe?) The definition of a come to Jesus moment is defined by urbandictionary.com as An epiphany in which one realizes the truth of a matter; a sudden, intuitive perception of or insight into the reality or essential meaning of something; coming clean and admitting failures; realizing the true weight or impact of a negative situation or fact; acknowledgment that one must get back to core values; moment of realization; an aha moment; moment of decision; moment of truth; critical moment; moment of reassessment of priorities; turning point; life-changing moment.(http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=come-to-Jesus+moment)
I can truly say I had many a “come to Jesus moment” in the year 2014 and as time goes on during this blogging journey i’ll go into more detail 🙂
So as i was contemplating starting this thing i was browsing a friends website ( shout out to globalwarmingtees) where she and her business partner make really thought provoking socially conscious tees. I came across one with the slogan “Love Them Anyway”. That slogan really resonated with me so i purchased the tee! A short while later i came cross a famous poem written by Mother Teresa which completely co-signed the message of the t-shirt and totally confirmed what i felt led to do! I’m 100 percent a believer that if you ask God for an answer in earnest, he’ll answer you! So here i am!
Anybody who knows me, knows that my personality leads
me to love on those who love me and forget about those who don’t! But… i know in my heart of hearts that’s no way to live. It’s my goal to be a better version of me in 2015.Ya’ll don’t trip! I’m saved but i’m not perfect! I’m a work in progress!
Along with Mother Teresa and my friend Charms tee, another friend( Hey Ves!) who is a wonderful blogger also inspired me to take this journey! ( Ya’ll go check her out! lipsticksandlemondrops.blogspot.com)
So as i conclude this blog there are just a few things i want to remember while I’m on this journey. There is a song by Israel Houghton that seems to be my theme song this year already and some of the lyrics read :
Now I’m gonna love like you love
Love like you love, help me love others
The way you love me
I’m gonna forgive, how you forgave
And rescue like you have saved…love others the way that you love me
I’m so grateful for His mercy! Happy Sunday! xoxo
PS: What an intense Superbowl game! I don’t like the Pats or the Seahawks so it was just good football for me 🙂
