I have been journaling for over 5 years. I didn't think much of my writing until a friend of mine told me that I need to join this site to start writing. I do admit that I express myself so much better in writing than I do verbally. I have always loved writing to God ever since I can remember. I always seemed to get answers to the problems I had by the time I finished writing which would draw me back to writing quite a bit.
Close to a year ago, I was also encouraged by one of my best friends to take some of the content of my journals that described my divorce and the death of my first husband and write a book on how Jesus carried me through it all victoriously. The combination of these two events, I feel, are what lead me to surrender the rest of my life to spread the Gospel for Jesus. I am trying to express the beauty of how in the midst of losing everything I thought defined me and gave me significance actually opened the door to my true identity through the eyes of God. It was the best and worst time of my life. I am greatful for the worst experience in my life because it lead me to the foot of the cross and set me free.
I truly love Jesus with all my heart and hope one day to be able to help others see who they are in the eyes of God as well.
