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.
