when i decided that my blog wouldn't just be about fashion, food, fab finds, and favorite things, but would include the Reason for my existence, i knew it could potentially garner some controversy or cause people not to read. why is Jesus so controversial? good question. He has been since the day He came to this earth over 2000 years ago. if we acknowledge that Jesus really is the Son of God, and that He is the only way to Heaven, we are excluding every other way that man has created to try and inherit eternal life. insert cricket noise. this view is far from popular and accepted. and i'm ok with that.
i would have been remiss in my blogging attempts if i failed to talk about the Creator of the Universe and His Son. like i said, its not what people want to read, it's not entertaining, and it's definitely not the cool thing to do, but do i care? not really. some people won't understand my heart very well because they don't know me. that's ok too. if you want to question something that i've said, challenge me, or simply offer your opinion, please feel free to do so. i try to make myself as clear as possible, but it is sometimes a futile attempt when communicating via a keyboard and words on a screen.
i am a flawed human being who is scratching and clawing out their way on this journey and learning new things on a daily basis by the grace of God. my heart is an open book, as you can see. i wish to share it with you knowing the risks that entails.
at this point in time, i am seeking employment at a non-profit organization, i.e. hannah home, turning point, the king's ranch, united way, etc. i need to know that i am making a direct impact every day and that in some small way, I am changing the world. no, it's not glamorous (and i love glamor), but as much as we have done it unto the least of these, we have done it unto Him. and that's what's gonna count for eternity. if you know of any possible leads, ideas, or positions, please let me know.
maybe you can see where i am coming from a little better now. maybe not. and yes, i will continue to to talk about fashion, food, fab finds, and favorite things, but i wanted you to know where my ultimate treasure is, and know the Center of my focus.
let me hear from you. soli deo gloria.
