Being a writer of the Spirit, my blog posts are often about the challenges of relating to and loving other people. These challenges are mine… yet at times perhaps you can relate to me as well! In relating we are reminded that we are not the only ones struggling in this life thing… we are all in this together!
Being an author of a spiritual blog and administrator of the Not Just A Blonde spiritual Facebook Page, I put myself out there for those interested in the blogosphere to read. Just who do I think I am to talk about such things? After all I’m clearly no better …and at times even worse than others!
And to that I say “Exactly!” I don’t pretend to know all the answers nor claim any special insight or direct-line to God. I’m just like you, really. We are indeed much more alike than different!
That is in part what has inspired this blog! I don’t pretend to be anything special… no more, no less than any body else. And yet, my heart craves community and communication with others… to benefit from the light of their insights, to share in my struggles and life’s burdens.
I’ve found that sharing my experiences with an open and honest heart can create spiritual connections with others. By being vulnerable I am able to offer understanding, comfort, inspiration, and even love… and for that I am grateful, for after all, to give is to receive.
As I struggle to find the words to share my heart… I will often fall short but that’s okay. No one is perfect… nor can be in this world. God knows that… Jesus knows it too… and is why he came to save us from ourselves.
And somehow that’s the point! As I struggle to write, I pray about the topic God places on my heart. As I wrestle to align my truth with His, it can get messy, ugly and rich with potential embarrassment… or even shame.
Yet, He also asks that I move through that and the guaranteed judgement of others to see where He can lead me. With my readers I then might share my journey as He guides me through the clamor of the storm to the rainbow His light will create as it illuminates my rain.
That’s the thing… if I blog-share about an experience that sounds like something you’ve been through or struggled with then we are now connected through an experience.
Through blogging God can bring us together to remind us we are part of a Spiritual family, we are not intended to live life alone! We are able to walk together in our Spirit’s journey towards God… towards love.
