I started this blog 4 weeks ago and it has been overwhelmingly therapeutic to unpack my personal world. However, I know the enemy has been out on full force trying to discourage and discontinue my blog. I have noticed areas in my life he is trying to kill, steal and destroy as I pursue Glorifying God through sharing my faith on this blog.
One example is potentially offending loved ones who may come across my blog because only Almond knows about GINSFAITH. Another one, finding the extra time on top of motherhood/wife responsibilities to take care of this blog. And lastly, the constant fear of continuing my space on the internet and just wanting to press the delete button.
I know it’s part and parcel of my GINSFAITH journey so I am going to embrace this season because i am really enjoying it. I have tried to start a blog a few years ago but i was so fearful that i deleted it before posting anything. So, I have decided to consistently post once a week and share my journals on the first week of every month.
Today, was actually the first time i truly wanted to share my blog with one of my most dearest and closest friends who is like a sister from another mister. Let’s call her Starburst because a) she is a shining star, b) she is bursting with love for everyone and c) she is such a superwoman for God. I know 110% with all my heart she would support my desire of sharing my faith through my blog. However, I hesitated and did not tell her because i was fearful. As i reflected on the situation, i realised that at some point along this journey i do need to share it with my family and friends because it is an important aspect of my life. I think they would all be a little shocked but would be so supportive of the fact i have taken a huge leap of faith to glorify God through my blog.
“I will praise you, Lord, with all my heart and tell about the wonders you have worked. God Most High, I will rejoice; I will celebrate and sing because of you.”
— Psalms 9:1-2 CEV
My prayer is that God will continue to give me the strength to share my faith on this blog and to one day find the courage to share my blog with my family and friends.
