April 22, was the last post I made here. It feels odd in a way to come back to blogging after being gone. I could go through the different reasons why I was gone, but the truth of the matter is that I needed it. I don’t really need to explain more than that. However, I do feel the calling to pull aside the shades and I have some fun plans in the works. I am really excited because I am in a season of life at the moment where I can really flex my creative muscles while also digging into some truth. My truth in particular, because I hope that some of the things that I have been discovering about myself will help someone else.
There is something freeing about admiting your truth. To admit that behind the pretty filters we put on, we all have our stories. Some stories are harder to tell then others but they don’t have to be the parts that we are ashamed of. That was what i was continuously struggling with. The idea that in Christ, there is nothing to be ashamed of. While our stories helped to shape us, they are not meant to be the identity in which you cling to. We like to hold on to the bad as excuses and identities because it feels safer. It feels safer then to lay it down and claim a more bold identity because if your proud of who you are, you are either to prideful or conceited. So we grasp false humilty like a blanket because it is easier then to proclaim that we can do all things through Christ who gives us strength. We hold onto our anxities because that is easier then to believe that the God who created all things can also care for your most mundane needs..He cares for the birds of the air and so can He care for you. It is easier to cling to our depression because we look to people, objects and anything that will make us feel happiness, when as Christians we are told to have joy. Joy is stronger than happiness because it’s foundation is not rooted in ourselves. I am going to talk more about anxiety and depression in a different post because I want to share my struggles and victories in these areas of my life.
In other words, it is time for me to strip down the walls and it is time to expose the truth with Truth. It won’t all be serious topics, I have some fun posts planned as well. I am looking forward to be sharing my heart with you once again. Till next time.
