It’s good to be back with you all today! Although I’ve been busy (frantic, actually!) writing thousands of words to complete my first book, I’ve missed this spot right here. I missed passing along the Word of God and the hope of God to anyone who joins us here ♥ So, today I’m back and have some fun things to share with you!
Did you notice a little over a month ago or so the blog was redesigned? It was in the works for a long time, but when it finally happened, I was about to take my summer break to finish that book. It meant I wasn’t able to celebrate the new blog as I’d like. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate now!
I shared a little more about the book on Instagram 🙂
This week I am honored to be guest writing over at Crystal Twaddell’s beautiful website. She is in the midst of a series called Made to Brave. I received the opportunity to share my story about braving regret and how we move forward. Regret is something we all have, but it can be dangerous. It can keep us stuck in the chains of the past rather than flourishing in the purpose of our future. I pray my story encourages you ♥
For the One Who Needs to Move Forward
I had just turned 17 when I made a choice I will forever regret. With my broken heart buried beneath the heavy weight of shame, my choice ruled my life for many years. Years where I experienced more defeat than victory. Domino effect years leading me into deeper brokenness and unfulfilled purpose.
But it’s also a choice God used to teach me about His grace. About His love. And about His redemption.
It’s one that taught me I am made to brave regret.
No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us. And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. -Romans 8:37-38[bctt tweet=”God can use our poor choices to teach us about His grace, His love, and His redemption.
