As I pondered over my blessings from June, my mind wandered to this time last year. Looking at the calendar, I realized that Sunday marks one year since I have been blogging! I remember that sweet moment when I clicked post for the first time. After those weeks, filled with long hours staring at a blank screen praying for words, I never would have imagined that I would continue to press post.
Now that a year has passed, all I can do is point to God. On my own, I would have no words and no cause that excites me. He is inspiration and my reason to rejoice. Anything I write is by His grace alone. My prayer is that my imperfect words encourage you to look to our perfect God.
I am continually thankful that He blessed me with a way to share bits of my heart.
Here are a few of my bursts of sunshine from June-
long hours in the Word
My mornings in God’s Word have brought me indescribable refreshment. Having unhindered hours to dwell on scripture is my highlight from every day.
A few weeks ago, a friend of mine introduced me to coffee smoothies. Now, every morning, I am rarely found without a frosted coffee in hand.
Though I only saw the sun set over the lake once in June, that one sunset was stunning. I thought of how infinite God is as the colorful strokes broadened across the sky and the waves overtook the shore. The few photos I captured could never do it justice.
the blessing of work
Yes, I was hired! I can hardly believe that I have worked for nearly two months now. The job is not what I expected but I am discovering joy in my work. God is growing me, even in the simple job of wiping tables.
