It's 10:04pm, and I'm typing up this final post for 31 days. I'm simply in awe of God right now.
I can remember the first moment this idea came to mind, sitting in Annie's car, driving from Indianapolis to Chicago. All weekend long, I had heard incredible women sharing their ideas for 31 days. Zero percent of me thought I was going to participate.
And then the idea hit: I could write about purity. I got that feeling of my heart igniting on fire, that beautiful tension in my chest that I can only associate with passion from the Holy Spirit.
But 31 days? Really? Could I seriously write for 31 days about purity? And even if I did, would I still have people reading my blog after that?
I just knew none of that mattered. I knew it didn't matter if 1 person read these posts or 1 million people did. Because I knew I had to do this for my heart. I knew the Lord was calling me to explore purity, and He was calling me to do that in a public setting on my blog.
And so, here I am, 31 days after starting this mission. These 31 days consisted of trudging through my past experiences, digging into scripture, pouring out my heart. They were filled with battling temptation, tearing up at the support & encouragement of others, and praying, begging the Lord to guide my words.
They were filled with so much, and they were just the beginning of my journey to discovering what true purity looks like. What it acts like. What it thinks about.
My life is transforming, it's transforming every single day. Your's is too, have you noticed?
I want to thank you. Yes, you. You who read each and every post. And you who used social media to encourage me, support me, and ride along in this journey with me. You who prayed over this series. And yes, even you, who stumbled upon this post and are thinking "whaaa?"
You all play a role in my life. You all play a very important part in the beautiful story God is writing right now. I pray that you know that, how important you are to Him.
It is my prayer that after these 31 days, you feel encouraged in your pursuit of purity. Whatever that looks like right now, I pray that if anything, hearing my story encouraged you that you can move forward in yours.
I love you. I really, really do.
Oh, and Happy Halloween!
