One year ago tomorrow, I wrote a post entitled "Confiding in His Love," that chronicled our journey with bipolar disorder. I took a line from my favorite hymn, Living by Faith, and wrote about how our faith in God kept us going through all the dark times of my husband's illness.
This past Monday, my daybook post mentioned the old song, "Faith is the Victory."
I guess you could say nothing is changed. I'm still a faith blogger.
When I first started blogging everything I read about building a successful blog talked about finding your voice. I worried about this a lot. What should I write about? I love home decor, recipes, organization, bible study and sharing about my road trips. Surely I needed to focus on one thing.
I found my voice. Woven throughout all the photos, stories, quotes, recipes and bible studies, one thing is evident. My voice is faith.
I'm a believer. I can't separate that out from who I am or what I write.
My premise is God is good. If you are a believer and are wanting to be in the will of God then ultimately everything works out for the best. Notice I did not say you would have an easy life. I think deep down we all know that is never going to happen. What I can tell you is this: A believer is never alone. God will guide through the roughest times. He is always there.
When you get down to it, isn't knowing you are not alone what everyone wants?
