Wow, I can’t believe summer is over! Where has the time gone?
This summer has been insane and without going into too much detail I will say that I spent a lot of time in prayer and reading the Bible. Even though I have only blogged a few times this summer it’s not because I didn’t want to or that I forgot about you. In fact, it was quite the opposite.
You see I have openly admitted to how I struggle with comparison. Every day it is so easy to look at other bloggers and writers sites and feeds wishing you could do the same thing. I always have been worried about making this blog “picture perfect” that I started stressing out over my posts.
The passion was there but the energy and will to post became almost non-existent. I started worrying more about how it looked than the actual content itself.
The enemy was using this as an attack on me. I was constantly worrying over if I had enough spacing if my graphics were pretty and my word count just right. I slowly started forgetting the reason why I started this blog and ministry in the first place.
I was trying to be HER and not ME. It hit me one day that I am me for a reason. God didn’t call me to be her. He chose me to be me. I just needed to let Him work through me. My calling and passion have been writing and ministry for over a couple years now. It’s only human nature to want to jump ahead of God and try to move forward.
Instead, we need to be content with where we are. Right here, right now because He is equipping us for better things. I know being content in all seasons of life is easier said than done. Trust me, I know it for a fact to be true.
So what does this mean for One Girl One Life One God? It means there will be no more stressing and worrying over whether the layout of my content is perfect. It means there will be more thought to what I post and write.
I’m going back to simplicity. Simple layouts with deep, honest, and real truths and lessons that God lays on my heart. I want my life to be relatable to you. I want you to connect with me. What you see and what you read is the real me.
God laid this on my heart and I wholeheartedly believe with all my might that He will continue to equip me for this calling and passion.
I will also be going back to my Saturday evening Tending Your Faith Devos by email as well starting September 8th. Be on the lookout for an email update Sept. 1st with what to expect from the weekly devos. Make sure you sign up. Subscribing to the blog doesn’t sign you up for the devos.
Be sure to sign up HERE!
I’m so glad that you are along for the journey. I’m super excited to see where He leads us this fall. As a thank you for signing up for my free weekly devos I’d like to offer you a free printable of a new layout for my Tending Your Faith Journals that haven’t been released yet.
Just shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org after you sign up and I will send it out to you.
Blessings, Grace Mae ❤
