“O Lord, you are my God; I will exalt you and praise your name,

for in perfect faithfulness you have done marvelous things,

things planned long ago.”

~Isaiah 25:1

Wow, I can’t believe three weeks have passed since I’ve sat down to write a post!  Time is sure flying by with my sweet baby!

I just wanted to check in with all of you and let you know that I’m sorry for not finishing Romans 12 with you.  I’m still amazed at how much time my three and a half month old takes.  Zion is beautiful and more amazing to me every day.  I love watching him discover how each muscle works and learn new things on a daily basis.  I’m in a learning pattern as well.  This is all new to me, so I’m daily discovering how to be Zion’s mom.  It’s the most difficult and most rewarding job I’ve ever had.  It’s the greatest ministry I’ve ever played a role in.  I’m so blessed and I continue to pray for wisdom on how to raise my son!

This is what takes me away from writing consistently right now!  And honestly, it’s okay!  I want to be available for God’s purpose.  I don’t want to miss a moment with my son.  I want to cherish every second I can with him.  I continue to pray that God will give me balance on how to be a wife, a mom, a friend, a mentor, a daughter, a niece, an aunt, a teacher, a writer, and most of all a child of God.  I pray that God will use me in every moment to advance His glory.  I pray that I will be available for His purpose on a daily basis.

So here I am thinking that my posts will need to change a little bit.  Right now, I need to take the time to get down on the floor and play with my son.  I want to cherish every moment I have with him.  I want to celebrate every new thing he learns.  I want to enjoy the moments that I’ve been given and not miss them because I think I have to get on this blog and write.  Although, I do still have a desire to write and share with you the faithfulness of God in my life.

So I’m going to scale back a little bit.  I’m going to still try and write as much as possible.  But I will make my posts short.  I’m going to start using them like more of a journal entry.  I will share with you what God is teaching me and how He is being faithful in my life.  I will share with you the joy I am experiencing by living for my Father.  From time to time, I might post one of my old favorites from this blog.  And at times, I might share a poem I have written in my journal.  Then at other times, I’ll just get on and share with you a lesson God is teaching me.

My posts will look a little different for a while, but I pray they will touch you all the same.  May God take my small amount of time and use it for His purpose.  I pray that God will use me to encourage you, to strengthen you, to renew your hope, restore your vision, and give you a passion for God’s Word.  I pray that God will use every post to advance His glory alone!  I pray that I will be a vessel that God can work through!  I’m all HIS!  Still learning every step of the way and enjoying every moment that God has blessed me with.

Dear Father God, Please guide me in what You would have me write.  I pray that You will teach me something new every day and give me an opportunity to share it with others. I want to be used by You!  I want to write for You!  Lord, I pray that You will be glorified through everything I do, say, and think!  To You be the glory forever and ever…  Amen!

Simply Devoted to Jesus,
