Saying thank you

by adustyframe ~ October 26th, 2006

I want to thank those of you that have read and commented here.

Saying that you are praying for us is truly a blessing. Even if it’s a quick prayer when you read a post, it means more to me than I can say.

When I was in college, I wanted to somehow be involved in women’s ministry. I didn’t know if I would speak, or write but I also knew I had nothing to say.

Why would anyone want to listen to me?

Well, God has dropped in my lap a reason to speak and a reason to share and yes even a reason for people to listen to me.

As I share here, I am sometimes zig zagging around telling things from my struggles in the past. So if you read chronologically it may not make much sense. That’s why I try to put things in categories.

As you read, I pray that you will see Christ in me. When I began to let go and give things to God to work as he pleased, I realized that I must point to Christ and give any glory or accolades to him.

I aim to be transparent. That means some posts will be ugly. In the past I’ve read books about people’s trials and often find them sanitized. I walk away thinking “what is the matter with me that I’m not handling this trial like they did”

I feel that sharing struggles and admitting that I have been angry at God or that I have questioned my faith paints a clearer picture of the true work that God is doing here.

I thank you very much for reading and sharing and praying. I am humbled by your beautiful comments and I am blessed that I can minister in any way. That is truly the cry of my heart.

I also don’t want you to be upset if I don’t post at your blogs very often. The truth is that I have another blog. A blog that is all cheerful and more about bits and pieces of our days.  It is for people that don’t about this trial I’m facing. Somehow I haven’t been able to put the 2 together right now.  So who knows? Maybe I’ve commented on your blog with my real name. I try to be careful and not mix the two for many reasons.

One reason is that it doesn’t matter “who” I am to share this with you. Who God is is a more necessary thing and I want my growth and trials to share with you that truth.

If you’d like a name to pray for you can call me Lizzie and my son James. Those aren’t really our names but they will work.

If you know anyone that faces a trial like mine, please share my blog with them. This blog is partly due to my wishes that I could find someone “like me” that could understand. I started it because there wasn’t any place I could find and I know that I am not the only one dealing with this.

Thank you again. God bless you!

Lizzie

    A friend of mine sent me a link to your blog when I started throwing myself a little “pitty party” about some struggles I had in my life. Its been a blessing reading through this trial. I’ve learned a lot about God and myself. For that – I’m thankful. God Bless. Jen.
