I can't believe I'm actually doing this...starting a blog. It's something that has been on my heart for a while now, but the day is here that I actually start writing. Right now, I'm starting this blog so that I can write down everything I'm learning on this journey with God. For the past year or so I've been journaling everything. Literally, everything, from prayers to quotes, song lyrics and sermon notes. It's been my way of trying to remember all that God is teaching me. Now, it's time to step out of those journal pages and step into the vulnerability of a blog. I'm hoping that by sharing this with others it will further my learning. I love seeing things from various points of view and love hearing about what others have learned on their own journeys with God. I'm the type of person that learns by listening to others, reading, and sitting back, not really putting my opinion or thoughts out there. This is definitely going to be different for me but I know it will be good. I've titled my blog, "The Pursuit" because the word pursuit has literally been a reoccurring theme all year. The background is a door and the scripture is Matthew 7:7. For me, all three go hand-in-hand. This is my pursuit, I'm going to keep knocking on that door, searching for my Savior, seeking Him in every moment of every day because I know He will show up. He already has. I've only just begun to see all that my Father is doing. These glimpses that He gives, that sweet small voice, the way He finds me, loves me, protects me, and provides for me. The list goes on, because I serve a faithful God who has shown me beautiful grace.
