So I’m Starting a blog…

8 02 2011

With so many things happening in my life I feel as though I am going to forget all of the amazing moments and learning experiences that I have ever encountered.  I once had a blog many years ago (at an undisclosed location for obvious reasons…Maybe I’ll post it later if I can find it again) and after reading back the words of my younger self I noticed that there were so many small and insignificant things that happened in my life that have established and formed me into the woman that I am today.

At the time of my previous blog I was a Civil Engineering student trying to find my identity as a newly single lady.  So much has changed since then and I am so surprised to see where I am today.  Obtaining a degree in Math with an emphasis in Statistics and now a youth and music minister. I never would have known that my love for the Church would have overcome my love for self sustainability.  I always wanted to be able to rely on me and me alone.  However, by becoming an active member of my faith, it has showed me that I cannot do anything alone.  I need my family, friends, and most of all I need God.

I have no idea what this blog will turn out to be nor do I know if anyone will find it interesting.  I feel the need to express myself on a platform where my ideas will be heard.  I have noticed that my small voice is not overheard amongst the innumerable outspoken individuals that I love so much.  But here on this platform I can speak uninterrupted, share without reservation, and feel as though I am participating in a movement where anyone can express their thoughts and ideas.

I long to be heard and understood.  As soon as I sing I immediately feel both.  Give me a bedazzled microphone and I am one happy camper! I thank God everyday for that gift.  I think he knew that I would need that place where he and I can be together.  A place where I can always find him no matter what.  Even through trials and struggles and as much as I try to run from him he always finds me in worship.

If I were to tell someone one thing about God I would say that he is an amazing love and he reveals himself to me in the most unlikely places.  Recently God has placed several people in my life that have revealed to me how much God loves me.  One of which is an amazing atheist man.  Whom I will be eternally grateful for.  (More on that later) I am also so thankful for the people God has continually chosen to put in my life for so long.  I find that they are my strength and my constant reminder that I have people I can turn to when I am in need.

Well this is just a first post… Can’t get too crazy or in depth here.
