I have journaled for years. That has been my way to deal with whatever was going on in my life, but never once I have ever thought I had something important to say. I am not a college graduate and I have never been looked at as the child that had writing skills. In fact my mother was once my teacher and I believe I still have nightmares from the blood bath of red ink on my english papers. But God has done so much in my life over the last year and half. One thing for sure is that He has pushed me past my comfort and continues to do so. I don't want to ever take lightly what He pulled me from and what He is calling me to. So for that reason I begin my first blog today. And....dead air.
Nothing to say???
I mean daily I have "posts" run through my head and today the day I say yes...the day I say o.k. God I'm stepping out of the boat and into deep waters....dead air.
How can that be?
Yet again I hear him whisper..."I asked , you said yes , now just rest in that." Rest in what? The fact that blogging is about writing and I have nothing to write about.
"No rest in your weakness. Because when you are weak I am strong. This blog will never be about you Carla. This blog will never be about what you have done. This blog will never be about your life. This blog.... that I have asked you to begin ....will be all about what I have done and continue to do in your life or you will have nothing to say."
Yep..that about sums it up. I am not a professional writer, I am not a highly educated counselor, I can guarantee you I will place a comma in the wrong place and I can promise you I will have grammatical errors but I also can promise you that without the Holy Spirit speaking to me I have nothing to say that will be different than any other blog you read. So today I rest in my weakness and I acknowledge that my weakness will be a place that His power will rest and His power will shine. Because it is all for His glory!!
I can't wait until I meet you again right here.
