I am who I am. –Exodus 3:14
I have to breathe in this verse as I accept my imperfect self. I am who I am. The Lord is who he is; he is perfect; he reigns for eternity and he is willing to accept my imperfect soul into his kingdom.
He has nudged me for years now about writing words of encouragement for women, couples and families who are trying to conceive. I keep telling him as Moses did “I am not the man for the job”, but he keeps reminding me that he knows what he is doing and to please listen to him so we can all get on with it! So here I am writing words from my experiences, lessons learned through his grace, guidance and love and how I continue to embrace each day.
Let me tell you a little bit about who I am and who I am not. I am not a writer which is why I am so reluctant to pen anything. I am a private person who has never kept a journal for fear that it may be read. I am a visual person who loves to draw, paint and actually have a Fine Arts degree in design. I am constantly amazed at technology & fell in love with graphic design after college. I am a daughter, a sister, a wife, an aunt, a god-mother and a mom. Yes, I am a mother to 4 children. I am a survivor and a lover of Jesus Christ.
I am here to tell you that he has a plan for you and me. I feel a bit like Moses at the burning bush when God told him to go and lead his people out of Egypt. I feel quite inept and unqualified. I wonder if anyone will follow this blog just as Moses wondered if his own people would follow him, but if you are here that’s one more than none. I am welcoming you into my life filled with love, anger, blessings, uncertainty, disappointment, happiness and eternal possibilities!
Heavenly Father, thank you for leading my heart and guiding my words as I maneuver through uncharted territories. Please continue to encourage me when I feel alone and unworthy of blessings. Allow me to open my heart and accept the plans that you have laid before me. In Jesus’ name -Amen.
