I am NOT...

The list of things that I am not could go on forever. (Don’t worry I won’t make you read THAT much!)

I am NOT an expert, although I love to read and research many things.
I am NOT a theologian, although I do read my Bible every morning.  
I am NOT extraordinary. I am not gifted. I am not a writer.

I AM a sinner, chosen by the grace of God. I am thankful to have been called to repentance.
I AM a Christian. I am continually being humbled under the mighty, omnipotent hand of God.

I AM hopeful that God would use my circumstances to change me more and more into the likeness of His Son, and my Lord, Jesus Christ.

I am not sure what I expect this blog to become. I am hopeful that I might share my thoughts and my story with even one person who might be encouraged by what God is doing in me and through me.

I am disabled.

I, like many of you, have been disappointed, felt the sting of grief, dealt with insecurity and rejection. I am intimately acquainted with pain; both physical and emotional. I am daily facing challenges, many people could only imagine. I am always praying to trust and know God more. I know the darkness, emptiness and hopelessness that living apart from Christ brings. And, I know, by the grace of God alone, what peace can be experienced, even in the midst of trials, through a union with Christ.

I am NOT sure what the futures holds, but I AM thankful you are here, going through this journey with me. I am excited to get started.

Have a great day! I am hoping to see you again tomorrow :)
