The last day of April.
The last day of the A to Z Challenge.
I'll admit, this challenge was a bit trying. Not being fully established as a "blogger," I learned a lot in the past month. I have posted regularly. I have connected with fellow bloggers. I have learned different aspects of participating in the blogging community. I upgraded the design of the blog (huge thanks to Digging Deeper Designs). I have wavered between blogging as a hobby or a taking this more seriously. Most importantly, I have grown deeper in my relationship with God throughout this challenge, as well as encouraged and hopefully instilled some hope in the readers of this blog.
I guess what I am getting to is... 30 to 31 days ago, I never imagined I would have came out of the other side of this challenge considering the things I am considering now. While, yes, I want to help those that are hurting or have been hurt, and yes, I want to help others deepen their relationship with God, I never really thought of the potential a blog would offer in my reaching out to others. What started as an idea has the potential to go far and beyond what I could have fathomed. Maybe in the back of my mind somewhere, I considered this a trial run at blogging... Is it worth the time and effort? Is it worth putting myself out there? Could this even be what I truly want for my 'ministry'?
That being said and many prayers later, I have decided I am not going anywhere. There, I said it.
So, for now, I am going to rest up.... The ideas over the past few days have flooded my brain, and there is a lot of work to do. Exciting things to come, and being tired is not going to cut it. Off for a nap. (Lame "Z" post? Maybe. It is just going to have to work.)
In His Love,
