Hi there or should I say happy new year? LOL!
Yeah I know, I know… and I am sorry!!!
It’s been a journey honestly. I made up my mind to stop blogging altogether, because I felt like, what’s the point? Everyone is busy on different social media mediums and reading is suddenly becoming a bore, a chore or not fancy anymore. People are more interested in the video or picture storytelling now and I am not about that life just yet. I shut off my mind totally from this blog and I didn’t wanna look back. Then I called my admin to tell her to help activate it just one more time so I could copy all my posts and save them.
After she did helped me with it (she is the best by the way and I will tell her story here someday soon), I logged in to my blog and took a deep breath! It came rushing back. All the feels I feel whenever I see the welcome page of my blog came rushing back. I felt the excitement, joy and sheer admiration of having something so special I could call mine. This was the place I had built with the gift God had given me and it could pass the mark for being called my sanctuary. I loved it here. I loved the pictures. I loved the genuine emotions I poured into every post. I loved seeing my writings and the thoughts that provoked them. I loved the colours and the joy they bring to my heart by just looking at them in their diversity. I thought to myself: “This isn’t the time just yet.”
So, here I am with a word of encouragement for you reading this: are you at a point in your life where you feel like quitting on that thing that once brought you the most excitement? Maybe you just don’t have the drive anymore or the ‘ginger’ has waned. Don’t throw in the towel just yet. Take a break; a long break if need be. Think of the ‘why’ you started in the first place. Ask yourself if you will still be living out your purpose if you decide to change course, if yes, then do it! Otherwise, breathe, rest and come back stronger.
For thus says the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel: “In returning and rest you shall be saved; In quietness and confidence shall be your strength” (Isaiah 30:15). Stand still and know that He is God. He will never leave you nor forsake you. He that has called you is able and He will help you. You were made for such a time as this and you will win! Don’t give up. Just like the lily, you will thrive beautifully through the waters and storms. Be delicate yet immoveable. This is from someone that had actually thrown in the towel, but decided to pick it, squeeze it out and start again. I am here cheering for you and you will win!!!
With ALL my Love,
