Grab some coffee....
I have been on a personal journey of faith for a several years now and have really started to share more of it with you here on my blog.
Some of you embrace it and some don't .
That is okay with me.
Some of you are of the same faith as me, and some are not.
That is okay with me too.
It is more about the heart...
and we all have one.
More than we may realize, we are all in the same boat. Some of us have paddles, some of us have life jackets and some of us don't. A few stand at the head of the boat and scream "I am the king of the world" and some of us are hanging our heads over the railing throwing up from all of the waves. Thing is, we are all in this together and we all go through similar things.
I hope that by me being authentic and transparent here, it will help someone elses boat ride along the way. Just call me "Julie McCoy"...your cruise director because I am glad you are here.
Okay, so as you know, I am really sarcastic at times, and equally, if not more, dorkey. Here is some good news I found out about that on page 137 of the book "Only You Can Be You"
I have always reminded you that I am open minded, share what I believe and create based on it. I strive to walk the walk and talk the talk but I am human and dang it, I stumble and sometimes fall.
We all do.
THANKS ALOT ADAM (okay, and Eve!)
I have to admit, I have fallen hard.
No..not right now, in the past.
The thing is, I get back up, figure it out, confess it, ask for forgiveness (He will forgive you too, you just gotta ask) and then keep going. I am continually and constantly learning who I am, what I am supposed to be doing and sharing it...through the creative abilities that God has given me..
and I am so glad you are still here.
With the completion of the "Only You Can Be You" study last week I was a little "okay, what is next..now what" and happily found the answer with the new series Pastor Rick started this week called "Creating a Positive ID"
So the big question was "Do you know who you are" and well, since I just finished learning and being reminded that "I am me" from "Only You Can Be You" (say that 5 times fast) I knew I was on the right track (or is it tract?)
"I am a product of my past..NOT a prisoner"
and it reminded me that I was holding my own self hostage.
You see, I realized that I was unconsciously torturing myself because I had not fully forgiven myself. Maybe a little, but not completely and it does not work that way.
You either do or you don't...not kinda.
well, how can I not forgive myself when God has already done so..
I think I am starting to mature.
and I am glad you are here with me on this journey.
