Half the battle is getting started, amirite. This blogging world is hectic with a capital heck, but hey here I am!
Welcome, Haere mai, Bula vinaka.
It’s really just a struggle to find the balance when you speak fluent sarcasm and are attempting to write a somewhat serious blog… I’m stuck between a rock and a hard place here guys. I touched on the ‘why’ behind the blog in my About section, but this is the extended version for you real committed readers – respect.
So rewind to my birthday in August last year, I was given this journal you see featured in the above photo. I decided to use it to scribble down typography pieces of what I felt God was teaching me at that time… It’s funny how you become more aware of the frequency of something occurring when you are intentional about it. For those of you who don’t know, God is quite the talkative one! More often than not, this voice of His is smothered in a whirlwind of salt-sprinkling memes and which VSCO filters to choose.
Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not the greatest with reading my Bible on the daily, but what I have come to learn is that does not disqualify you from hearing from God; however it is simply the most obvious way of doing so. I have found that every time I open my Bible, I kid you not, I read verses that Speak directly into my current season. Not long ago, a friend of mine actually showed me her art collection and one particular gem got me good – ‘Don’t say God has been silent when your Bible has been closed.’ I mean, if that doesn’t challenge you, I don’t know what will.
So now with this whole journaling journey (wow, that was a new level of embarrassing to even type…) I was convinced by another friend to start this blog and share both what God has spoken, and is currently speaking to me. Still unsure of whether that will be the only content I’ll post on here – considering the occasional break dance tutorial – or how often I’ll post, but we’ll see!
In the meantime, my challenge to you is this: simply ask God to Speak if you genuinely want to hear from Him. He doesn’t only speak to ‘Christians’. Don’t overcomplicate the process – God wants to talk to you more than you could possibly want Him to, I just choose to let Him.
