Before I dive into it, I wanted to say a few things first. A few things that are heavy on my heart, things that I want you to know.
I want to say, and truly emphasize, that there is no condemnation here. There isn't, no matter what you've walked through or what you are currently walking through. No matter what your views are on the issues I dive into this month, you are welcome here without shame. That's just how Jesus works, He's not about condemnation or shame. He's all about grace and love, and that's how it's going to be here.
I want to say that I am no expert on this issue. I am not here to argue what's right or wrong, I'm simply here to share what I have experienced in my life. I'm here to talk about the road that I've walked, and the ways that my heart has been affected as a result.
I'm here to smile with the biggest smile my face has ever seen, and shout with joy that I am happier than I've ever been before. And please don't interpret that to mean that I used to be unhappy, although I would say that at times, that was the case. But really, the reason my heart is happier and healthier than it's ever been before is because I've finally got it on the path that it always wanted to find: the path to purity.
And that path is not always a straight shoot forward; as a matter of fact, it rarely is. There are missteps, trips, stumbles and falls. But for every misstep, there is a stride forward. For ever trip or stumble, there is the defining moment of getting back up again to keep on trekking. For every fall, there is the incredible feeling of a leap, a leap that only comes from Jesus Himself changing my heart to help me along my way.
Some may wonder why I share so vulnerably on here. Or why I share pictures of everything and anything on my Instagram account. And while both questions may seem different, they have the same response. Because I am passionate about sharing my life. Why?
That's all for today, folks. Happy Humpday!
