I am so excited to be starting this blog. It is something that has been gnawing at my heart strings for several years. Up until now, the pile of excuses driven by life’s ups and downs, and a bit of fear, have kept me away. I am blessed to be in a season of acceptance. During this time I am accepting that God has called me to do something and I cannot let fear get in the way. I love the Lord, and I am stepping out on faith. I am trusting that his light will shine through me in every blog post. I pray that you as the reader are blessed by what you read. I am not guaranteeing that every post will be sunshine and rainbows, but I am promising honesty, truth – realness. When people ask me questions or come to me for advice I always give them the most honest answer.
As I stated before, I believe God is calling me out. He has brought me through many situations, the story of his glory deserves to be told. What really triggered me to start writing now was a remark made to me at a gathering, “Jocelynn has the perfect life.” I was stunned and almost speechless, but I felt I had to say something. So I replied, “Well, I wouldn’t say my life is perfect. I’ve got challenges to face just like everyone else, but I am blessed. I know I’m blessed.” Wow! The perfect life. I haven’t been able to get this statement out of my head. Should I be flattered or concerned? I was and still am unsure, but I know that I need to write. I need to share some of the pain and the joy of my life. I want to celebrate the journey. I want to share the journey with you. 🙂
So, I’m writing. I’m writing because I want to be transparent. I want God to be able to use the experiences that he has brought me through, and is bringing me through to help other women. I want other young girls and women to know that they are not alone. I want you to know that God loves you regardless, and will fight to redeem your time if you let him.
