It's been awhile since I last posted. I thought I had an idea of when I was to be posting until God revealed HIS plan...ha, ha, ha! So, season 1 is complete for the She Walk in Purpose podcast and I continue to walk.....therefore the writing begins. To be honest, I'm a bit uneasy about writing frequently because I don't view my writing as something that comes easy to me....not like talking. AGAIN, His plan not mine. I find it fascinating how God is so faithful and at the same time moves us to step into things that we never thought we would do. Needless to say, you will be 'hearing' from me in this way for the next couple of months.
I really have no idea if I'll be posting weekly or every other week. Sooooo, in all actuality, this blog will like the podcast except you'll be reading instead of listening. The next couple of months will be focused on a theme of several specific topics that cause my 'dander' to rise a bit when I hear them or read about them. I've come to recognize how these topics were actually sources of deceptions for me and now I am recognizing how they have deceived others. I plan to discuss how I hear them talked about or what I read about them in various forms of writing (books, blogs, social media posts, etc) and then share what I have learned through studying God's Word.
What I noticed as I started my 'planning' process was that these topics have a running theme....identity. Each of the topics have 'boiled' down to the fact that we have a very twisted view of what identity is and because we do, we have coined phrases that have then turned into philosophy that has completely drawn our eyes away from the source of our identity to ourselves. This is very dangerous place to live, view the world and specifically view our Abba. I am quite excited to delve into these topics and at the same time am very much aware that it may cause conflict for those who may read this posts. With that said, I want to share that I welcome and look forward to conversations that may ensue. I encourage anyone reading these posts to comment or send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org). I love hearing and learning from others.
So, that's about it! I plan to release the first topic on this series focused on identity this week. Keep your eye out for it. In the meantime, Blessings in the Truth & Grace of Jesus Christ!
