I don’t know what it is about starting that makes me freeze, but the beginning of something is always the hardest for me. I do know, however, what I want to get out of this.
I want growth. I want to experience something new. I want to change, to become more like Him, the writer of all beginnings.
I want peace. I want to be comforted on this journey. I want to see His control in all things.
I want community. I want to see active joy in the lives of others. I want to love like He loves.
I want to see. I want to look into the world and find my Savior. I want this month to be my Esther, to reflect the gifts of my Savior, as He says “When this is done, I will go to the king, even though it is against the law. And if I perish, I perish.”
I want this to be a leap of faith. I want to take chances. I want to trust Him completely.
This is my prayer for the month. I’m starting simple, because I really don’t know how to start. But I’m trusting Him to use this month to His advantage. I’m trusting Him to help me grow in a way that is encouraging to others, in a way that points others to Him because if I’m being honest, I need that, and if I’m also being a bit blunt, so do you.
So here’s to reflection. Here’s to vulnerability. Here’s to nerves and getting them out of the way. I don’t exactly know what this journey will entail, but I hope you’ll join me on it anyway. Maybe we’ll learn something together.
Here’s to Blogging Every Day in April.
