Well, friends, it has been awhile, hasn't it?
Earlier this year, I chose to take a much-needed break from blogging. A step back. A breather.
It started as a one month break in April. I realized at the end of the month that I needed more time, and who was telling me I couldn't take it? No one. Only me.
So I turned my one month breather into a summer break. And it was completely worth it.
As summer drew to a close and I quietly celebrated my blog's one year anniversary, I contemplated whether it was time to begin blogging again. But I knew in my heart that God would lead me when the time was right, and it wasn't time yet.
So I waited.
And during the wait, I rested. I drew closer to God. I dug deep into the Word. I spent more time with my husband. I focused 100% on the pieces of my life which matter most to me.
Then, finally, it happened.
To be honest, I wasn't expecting it. I had felt the nudge back toward blogging a few times, but never this strongly.
It was time to start writing my story again. To glorify God through the good works he has done in my life. I knew it in my heart, and it filled me with joy!
There has been a lot of change in my heart this year. The kind of change that only God can facilitate.
It's going to change the way I run Cultivate Grace for the better, and that's what I want to share with you today.Read More
