Every time I turn on my computer, it wants to update something…. or do something other than what I want it to do.
I have always had “tech” issues, and luckily this time I am married to a tech man, but honestly, I have never been good with technology and it’s all I can do to write this blog post and publish it on my own.
I think that, for the most part, it took me years to start blogging because I thought I wasn’t “tech savvy” enough…but one day I spontaneously sat down, pulled up a Word doc. and started writing and the rest is history.
Do you every have things you avoid because you “think” you’re not good enough at it?
Through these blogs I have told you a lot about myself and a lot of this includes my many career attempts.
In trying to find “myself” I did this in hopes to find my place in this world. I thought that my career would be what would define me. And boy, that couldn’t have been farther than the truth. In the end what I thought I “wasn’t” good at I was, and vice versa.
Is there anything that you do that you feel as though you shine when you do it?
I think that my writing is very blessed by God and that that is why I feel as though I’m good at it. I’ll admit to you though…it’s hard sometimes to put yourself out there. I am VERY aware that my talk of God turns a lot of people off.
But I do it anyway.
If my faith causes me to lose friends, so be it. I figure they weren’t real friends that I should be surrounding myself with anyways.
It’s hard to be a Christian sometimes, but especially in today’s world. There are so many people that persecute and criticize behind their tablets and phones and say nothing to your face when in real life. To me, this can be the most isolating feeling. A feeling of being shunned that I just can’t explain. But it’s happened before. The main point is (for me) to keep on going regardless. To be nice to everyone regardless. And to remain true to God regardless. In my faith I will grow and each and every time this happens, I will grow stronger. Thank you, God, for your grace!
My five-year-old is coughing this morning and I’m hoping we aren’t coming down with another bug. The weather is rainy and being true to the season. But the best, most promising thing are the bulbs that are starting to sprout outside! It reminds me God is good. He is there. And even better things are coming. The tulips are on their way! And Amen to that!
“Be happy and rejoice and be glad hearted continually; be unceasing in prayer; thank God in everything no matter what the circumstances may be, be thankful and give thanks, for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus. Do not quench the Holy Spirit.”
1 Thessalonians 5:16-19
