I'm tweaking lots of things in preparation for the ACFW conference in September, and sprucing up my blog seemed like a good thing to do. I've been at it for a little over a year now and have refined my focus a little. I'm still using the scripture from Esther but have now added my life verse from Jeremiah, and changed the title to my name.
And it's purple! Well, lavender, sort of, or if you really want to be snooty about it - orchid. Purple's fine with me.
The main thing for me is that it represents a few more steps in the journey for me. I've learned a little more about what makes a good website (that's in the works - stay tuned) and a good blog so I'm trying to put those things into practice.
It's always such a learning adventure, isn't it?
I hope that your own journey is going well. Whatever it is that God has called you to do, step out boldly and begin to follow Him. What needs sprucing up in your life?
- developing a skill
- creating a work space
- joining a critique or work group
- taking a class
- taking care of yourself
Whatever it is don't wait...take that first step today. Ask for God's guidance, which he will give, and his blessing, which he graciously and generously bestows every second of every day.
Most of us aren't waiting to be perfect - we know that's not going to happen. MANY of us, though, are waiting to be just a little bit better before we begin. That implies that we can do it ourselves, and that sisters is a step down the path to disappointment and destruction.
Like the little boy with the loaves and fishes just turn over whatever you have in your hand/day planner/work room/home/office/head/heart to Jesus. He's got a plan and he's waiting for you.
I'm looking forward to the ACFW conference, but I don't want to miss God in the 40+ days before that. I'm remembering that in the middle of sprucing up I must be still and know Him. Every day. You too!
Thank you for visiting today. I hope you'll take a look at my updates pages. I have pictures!!
Remember, if you're reading this post I have prayed for you today. God is waiting to bless you.
In His Grip,
