one year ago I started this blog as a cry for help.
I was so super miserable in my job where I sat at a computer doing nothing all day
I started this blog just For Me so that I would have a place to be creative

I chose the blog title For Me as a reminder to myself; to be motivated by me and me alone. A lesson that the Lord has etched into my heart this past year has been all about Him being the true source of guidance, answers and truth, instead of seeking to win approval from everyone else, I practiced how to only hear HIS voice and no one else's.

We can spend so much time as humans, and women, comparing ourselves to everyone else, or confusing the decisions we need to make with the answers they are coming up with instead of what the Holy Spirit is speaking to us-- about what church to go to, where to live, what to spend money on, when to have kids etc. Although I have a wonderful husband, friends and family, they do not know what is best for me, The Lord does. January 16th's devotion in My Utmost for His Highest says this:
"The call is the expression of the nature of the One who calls, and we can only recognize the call if that same nature is in us. The call of God is the expression of God’s nature, not ours. God providentially weaves the threads of His call through our lives, and only we can distinguish them. It is the threading of God’s voice directly to us over a certain concern, and it is useless to seek another person’s opinion of it. Our dealings over the call of God should be kept exclusively between ourselves and Him."
I use this blog as a reminder to live this way. It's For Me and for Him to decide together.
I feel like this year I really gave up that control, let Him lead me and I am so excited where He is taking me.

and {although} I blogged For Me,
I have found some wonderful friends, been inspired like MAJOR and had SO much fun!!!
I can't wait to continue!
