What am I doing?

I couldn’t even tell you what I’m doing at the moment…other than trying to figure out what I’m doing! I’ve written since I was about 10 years old.  It started with poems – some long, some short – then went on to just writing about topics.  Topics always were things that I was going through.  I mean, how can you write about something that you know nothing about?

I don’t claim to be an expert – in anything.  However, I understand that we are able to take something valuable from each trial and tribulation we experience.  Life isn’t easy.  We all struggle at some point or another.  Some of the things that I’ve dealt with are going to be very different than some of you.  However, my hope is that with this blog, I am able to help you in some way, shape or form.  I pray that the words that make it to this page are those that someonesomewhere needs to hear.

God has been good to me.  I don’t deserve it.  I haven’t always had Him at the center of my life and often times, I still don’t.  It’s a constant battle between life, here on earth, and life everlasting.

God saved me.

Plain and simple.

He took me from where I was, to where I am now and #IAMTHANKFUL.

My life isn’t perfect but it is for me.  I am so blessed to have come so far.  I know that I have a lot yet to learn, but I’m confident that with each new day, comes a unique opportunity to share inspirational words, to say “I love you” and to just make people smile.

I hope that when you read this, you know that there is more for you.  God has a plan for us all HOWEVER it is always in His time.  Stop trying to rush through everything and cram a year into one day.  Before you know it, time on earth will be over and you will have wondered, What did I accomplish?

If you start thinking more about what God has for you, what you can do for others and how you can leave your mark on this world, things will come together.  I promise. Stop trying to plan your every move.  Know that you won’t always have a clear picture of the end result when you step forward.  Trust that God is in control and give it all to Him so that He can be.

Hope this was good for a first post!  Happy Saturday everyone!

xoxo ~Amy
