This "blog" is who I am... where I am.
imperfect... rough around the edges... scattered... but today I'm making no apologies.
There is something that has plagued my heart since my earliest memories - I do not belong. I am anomaly - a piece that doesn't quite fit. No matter how much I may look and play the part, and seem to have 'it all together' - my heart has always been alone.
Or so my enemies would have me believe... The truth is I have never been alone. I have always been loved, and from the beginning of time there has been a part to play, a piece to fill, that only I can do. I don't know what that is, but I know it is truth.
I am starting today with the declaration that I am not afraid. I am not afraid of my failures. I am not afraid of my weaknesses, and get this... I am not afraid of my strength. I will not be afraid of the person God made me to be - even if it means that often times I seem to stand alone.
And so I begin today - just sharing my life, sharing my walk, what's working, what's not, each step as I grow. I have been given an incredible gift. I have the capacity to be a light. I am not afraid to shine. The truth is I am not so very different, and I am not alone. My heart is probably a lot like yours. The sooner we put the lies and fears behind us and share our glory with one another - well... the more light, the more truth, the more good, there will be in the world.
My armor is on, my sword is drawn, and I am not afraid to be the beautiful woman I was created to be. I am fighting for my heart.
