It Has Been One Of Those Days

You know the days that I’m talking about, right?

Days when you are tired
Days when you feel inadequate
Days when you aren’t thinking clearly
Days when you doubt your calling

Yep…those days! I started my blog in the fall of 2012. I had such high hopes of living out the calling that God has had on my life since I was a young child. I wrote in this space for almost a year and then I took a break. My break lasted for WAY longer than I had planned. In the midst of my break, I was laid off from my job. Needless to say, I was thrown for a loop and in a bit of a fog. I couldn’t string many coherent words together let alone write them down. I spent a lot of my time crying before the Lord. He heard my cry and He comforted me. I learned many things about how faithful God is during that season.

I found a job in the beginning of this year and had every intention of starting to write again. But I had spent so many months of being caught up in my own thoughts and reading the anointed words of other writers. A strong wave of comparison and fear crept in. I began to think that my story and my voice weren’t needed. So, it became easier and easier for me not to write.

However, I received some amazing news this past week that has totally blown my mind and given me fresh focus! It’s a secret right now but I promise to share really soon! I am in complete awe of God’s love and grace towards me!

So, here I am, a little more confident and a little braver. But that’s okay!

God can take our little, when done in obedience, and turn it into something more.

I will continue to show up in this space with a tiny offering of my words knowing that the something more He accomplishes will further His Kingdom more than my own efforts ever could. I pray that I won’t doubt the call He has on my life regardless of what each day holds. I will press on and lean into what God is doing. I can’t go wrong!

My voice matters
My voice is needed
My voice makes a difference

And so does yours…



Have you had “one of those days”?

What is your “little” that you can offer to the Lord?

    I jumped over from (in)courage as I saw you as a new face on the contributors page. Your blog is new to me but …. I will be bookmarking and checking back often.
    Can’t say I have had “one of those days” lately but I have been fortunate to walk alongside of another young women who is currently tired and feeling as if her voice does not matter. As for mentoring the next generation. Have you read The Ways of the Alongsider by Mowry. I highly recommend this book. Have a blessed day! B.
