My Second First Blog Post….

Okay…I’m going to try this blogging thing again.  I never know what to write about; what will even interest people in the slightest, but it’s something that I’ve always wanted to do.  And let’s be honest: my first go around didn’t pan out to be much, so here’s to second chances!

I feel I need a place to come to think: a home for all my crazy, scattered thoughts; to get my ideas, struggles, prayers and whatever else I have to offer into black and white.  And I ask myself:

“Why not just journal?  Why do you feel the need to ‘blog’ it?”

Answer: I’ve tried the journaling thing and I literally forget to pick up the pen and write in them; I feel like a weirdo for writing to myself; but mainly because I lose them after about a month or two.  My great-grandkids are going to find notebooks one day and be like

“So, Granny Steph was craaaaazy…”

And then I guess I have the hope that whatever God lays on my heart to share one day will touch someone, in some sort of way.  One of my Christmas presents from my parents was a new devotional and just since the beginning of the year, God has already spoken to me, so many times.  He uses the most basic things to say:

“See?  You never thought about this verse in this way and I’m using my Word to speak to you and I want you to share these things!”

1 Peter 2:9 says: “But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;”

God chose me!  Not only to be His child and spend eternity in Heaven with Him, but He chose me to share that good news with everyone I can!  That is what He put me on this earth to do!

So while many of my coming posts may not interesting at all to anyone, I know God chose me and the need to write all this out for a purpose.  We’ll just have to wait and see what that will be!
