To me, one’s ability to write is a beautiful and priceless gift. Why? Because not everyone can translate their feelings into words.
One of the amazing compliments that warms my heart is to see, “Thank you Jackie. You have a way of saying it exactly how it is, just how I feel…” I love to hear these…
These few months of blogging and telling people’s stories and coming back to read criticisms and compliments from you are beautiful moments. In fact, I look forward to hearing from you every time I put something up.
As I read your reactions to my articles, I get to know what stories make your insides churn, the issues that bring chills through your spine, the ones that make you want to have a self check and above all, the ones that challenge you to be a better Christian.
Aha! About being a better Christian, just so you know, I’m not a saint. I share my experiences with you in writing and suggest to you how you can overcome some temptations and work at being like Christ.
It doesn’t mean I have it all together? No! It means I have my flaws too and I stumble in my walk with God. I don’t get it right always. But I believe that walking with God means a lifetime of grace, goodness and mercy. If then, let me continue walking…
Back to “writing”, I know I have been away for sometime. The reality is, I don’t always get inspired to write so you can also get inspired. Sometimes, I feel lazy and won’t complete what I begin. Forgive 🙈
There are times too, I feel you need a break just so I don’t become a bore to you. Right? And there are days when I’m caught up in life’s highs and lows trying to make something better for myself.
I’m not trying to make excuses for being that kind of writer…remember I told you it’s a blessing to know that I can be a blessing to you through my posts. Left for me alone, I wish I will leave you everyday wanting to read more from me.
I bet that time will soon come!
What about you? Need I mention, I hope you are being the best version of you and living the life that God planned for you when He formed you? Trust me, it’s the best thing that could ever happen to you. It’s peaceful.
One big lesson I’ve learned this past year is to live and enjoy my ‘now moment’. Instead of fretting and being anxious about things that are never going to be mine, it’s best to focus on what I have now and make the best of it. It’s golden!
Know this, as you walk with God, everyday may not bring bliss and glee. But you can trust that at the end of the journey, you will sing the victor’s song. Cheers to walking with God and growing. Happy new year!
I shall return!
Light and Love,
