The Start of Something New!
I recently spent some time perusing through some of my favorite blogs that I follow, searching back to their first ever posts, some dating back to 2010! It was so fun to see how far they have come, the style changes and quality of their work had grown so much in the years since they had started. I thought to myself, "wow, well I guess everyone starts somewhere!"
That being said, one of my aspirations for this year is for my blog to get more personal. I was hesitant for so long because I wanted everything to be PERFECT. Super high quality photos, exotic destinations, perfect hair and makeup, and the best outfit. I have two little boys at home, and being a stay at home mom does not give me much opportunity to make it all PERFECT -most of life gets documented through snapchat while I'm laughing hysterically at my boys!- An exotic destination for me usually is my weekly trip to Target (but lets be honest, a bad day at Target is still better than your best day at home, #amiright?) I really try to put myself together everyday but I usually live in my gym clothes (even if I don't ever actually GO to the gym). So you get the picture. If I EVER wanted to pursue this passion of mine of writing about the Lord and documenting my life I just had to START, and TRUST the Lord will do the rest.
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths" Proverbs 3:5-6
So that is exactly what I am doing. I am starting! I will trust in the Lord with all my heart, I will not lean on my own understanding of His plans for me, but will recognize His sovereignty in all that I do, and believe He will guide me down the straight and narrow.
My vision for this blog going forward is to still show the "Best in Blogs", because one of my favorite things to do is follow other bloggers and stay up on the latest trends. But more so, I will be writing mini devotionals that are intended to encourage. Mostly I will be writing about what the Lord is teaching me in my life, with hopes that you would gleam a little bit of hope. Each post will have a song at the beginning of the passage..It will look like this:
I LOVE worship music and it helps me get in the right mindset to hear what the Lord has to tell me.
If you are someone like me, then press play while you read. Hopefully this will create the perfect atmosphere for your moment with the Lord.
If you've made it this far in my crazy rant, then I love you, and thank you! I pray you can find a little encouragement from God, a little inspiration from the best in blogs (fashion and beauty) and get to know me and my wonderful family a little bit more. Love, Britt
