Have you ever worked on a project for a while only to come to a point where you need to be reminded of why you started doing it in the first place? Whether it's a job or a project or a hobby, we all need reminders at times about why we do things. Well, I need a reminder of why I started this blog and my vision for it.
I haven't written for the past few weeks. I'd like to blame it on finals week or taking time to rest or even just taking a step away for Christmas. But the truth is that I just didn't know what to write. Mainly, I think I forgot about why I write on this blog.
I started this blog last spring as a way to get flesh out my thoughts, share what God is teaching me, and even encourage others who might be thinking and feeling the same way I am, or could just use the same biblical lessons I'm learning.
I want this blog to be a creative outlet where I can be honest, not another means by which I can people please.
I want this blog to be Christ focused. I want people to encounter the gospel (the good news of Christ) when they read.
I want people to be encouraged.
I want the Word of God to be the source of wisdom and guidance.
I want God to have all of the glory.
These desires don't just apply to my blog, but to my life as well.
Over a month ago, I bought the domain name for this blog, not knowing what God has in store for it.
She Laughs Without Fear is a pretty daunting title considering I love to laugh, but my name could easily be changed from Madi to Much Afraid.
I am fearful. I'm imperfect. I'm a mess.
But my Creator is mighty and holy and magnificent. He is a Savior. He is trustworthy and faithful.
I want this blog to embody those things. A woman who is honest about her imperfections and her struggles, but makes much of her perfect Savior.
These are my reminders. These are my hopes.
She Laughs Without Fear is:
Grounded in the Word of God
A Creative Endeavor
I pray these things for this blog, and may I never forget its purpose, which is ultimately to honor God with the gifts and words He's given me and in gratitude for the Word that He gave the world.
Shalom! I'm Madi, a laughter-loving, movie-going, spontaneous-dancing, follower of Christ. Join me as I seek glimpses of God's grace in the ordinary and everyday.
