I first wrote this Introduction in November 2012: I began my first blog in October 2008. I was a new creation and I wanted everyone to know how faith changed my life. I felt new, dazzling, saved and refreshed. Through these past four years, I blogged, I cried, I lost sleep, I read, and re-read and learned what it was to live out my faith in life. I learned how much that sometimes hurt and sometimes how much of a glimpse of heaven it was. I begin this new blog to declare the commandment of my life, “However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.” (Acts 20:24). I know it won’t be easy, I know I will continually fail, but the everlasting God will love me through it all. I must learn how to turn my constant desire to be desired to God, not man. And this, my followers, is my only aim.
Update in December 2016: Again, four years later I write to you. I lost the touch. Blogging was not coming as naturally as it use to when I was younger. Did I lose the ability to be vulnerable, or did I simply feel rushed for time in the transition to adulthood? Since 2012 I moved to California, have my dream job, and I will be to married a very sweet-kind Husband. 2017 will bring a wedding, a fresh start and a hope to blog more often and awake my slumber heart.
