It’s been a long time since I posted anything. Honestly, I have felt a little writer’s block…again. But I don’t believe it was necessarily me trying to find something to write, but I was losing sight of what direction this blog was suppose to be headed.
A few years ago, I just moved home from college and stopped serving with NAMB to live with my parent in Thomasville. I prayed time and time again for doors to open for me to move to Montana. However, God kept laying the word “Home” on my heart. So I started “This Place I Call Home.” It has been a blessing more than I will ever actually believe.
But in all honesty…I think I just realized the importance of this blog.
I started writing post when I was lost and looking for answers. I always believed he was trying to show me comfort and peace in moving back in with my parents. I started to grow angry and lonely. I went from hanging out with friends to sitting with my mother almost every night watching Hallmark channel and eating popcorn. I needed something to occupy my time. Something to make a little sense. Now I see that this whole time, this was God preparing me. At the time, I had no idea that I would be moving to Laurel a little over a year later. I had no idea that I would meet the one who I had been praying for since I was 14. I especially had no idea that he would be a student pastor and we would spend our lives in the ministry.
But He knew it. He knew all along what this blog would become. He knew I would be writing about this place I call home. I love my knew temporary home in Laurel. I can’t wait to serve the Lord with my sweet future hubby.
Oh….in case you missed it. I’M GETTING MARRIED!
I thank you for the blessings I didn’t see at first. I thank you for showing me little steps along the way. I thank you for answering my prayers in ways you saw fit…not me. I pray for Laurel. I pray for the salvations here and I pray for the ministry that you have us here for. I pray that I will show more grace and surrender to you. I pray I deny myself.
I thank you for Taylor and I thank you for our upcoming marriage. Thank you for new home. Thank you for forgiving me and loving me. Thank you for not giving up on me. Your love is reckless and overwhelming…and just WONDERFUL.
I love you and will ALWAYS praise you.
