Hello there, friend! I want to welcome you to my brand new blog, Rooted! I hope you stick around, because there is much more coming in the near future! Here’s a little background:
I started my blogging journey with a random, life-style blog several years ago, but it wasn’t until autumn of 2016 that I realized that God was calling me to use my writing in a deeper way than I had been. My dreams began to change, and I realized that I wanted nothing more than to use my writing to help people and point them to Christ. As a Christian, I have the most powerful message in the world–the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I want my life to be about speaking that Gospel into the lives of others. So, after putting it off for much longer than I should have, I am following the call God has put on my heart. I am still plagued with doubts about my own strength and ability with words, but my Father has reminded me time and time and time again that this blog is not for me. This is for Him. This is for His glory, and I want nothing else than for Him to receive that glory rather than I.
I believe that we are here for more. More than the social media followers, more than seeking happiness, more than hanging out and just living. I believe we have a purpose in this life far greater than we could imagine, that we were created for a reason, and we are here to know the Creator of the universe and bring Him glory in our lives. My deepest prayer and desire for this blog is that the words you read will meet you right were you are, cause you to look to Christ, and become rooted deeper in Him as you realize who He is and what He has done for you. I pray that you will not just hear the Truth, but believe it with all your soul, surrender your all to God, and allow Him to change you. I pray that we will come together as sisters in Christ to encourage, love, and speak truth into each others’ lives, and in doing so, grow closer together and closer to God. And as we grow stronger in our faith, I pray that we will overflow with thankfulness for the salvation that comes through Jesus Christ and the blessings that God has poured out on us.
So thank you for stopping by! I hope you’ll grab a cup of coffee and stick around! I’d love to have you here. ♥
