I'd like to say that I've thought about this long and hard, but I haven't. Why? Because I didn't need to. My beautiful Savior, through much prayer and seeking His face, has made absolutely no doubt about His plans for me and this blog. And I have such an amazing peace -- that peace that surpasses all understanding.
When I first started A Godly Marriage in an Ungodly World, I started it with the intent to help others, especially wives, understand what their roles were within their marriage. And quite honestly, I wanted to learn as well.
The more I discovered, the more I shared.
And so began this beautiful relationship that I've had with so many of my readers. Its been an amazing experience, and there's nothing that could really measure up to it. Not only have I learned more about my relationship with my husband, I've learned more about my relationship with Christ.
You pushed me.
You challenged me.
In such an amazingly good way. You encouraged me in my relationship with God, and for that, I cannot thank you enough.
With that said, my season is now coming to an end. I certainly haven't learned all that there is to learn about marriage, or life. But there is so much more in store for my life, and I feel Him drawing me away from this now. There was certainly a time and a season for this ministry that He built, but it is now coming to an end. I felt it very strongly recently, especially after I completed my series, What is a Godly Marriage?
I felt, all along, that writing that series was my main purpose for even creating this blog -- but before I could successfully write the series, I needed to have your attention...and I gained it, quickly. I was real. I was me. What you see is what you got -- Jesus, He was even more amazing through it all.
So without further ado, I bid you farewell. I'll still pop in from time to time on facebook. I'll still encourage you as much as possible when you have questions -- when you email me or message me on facebook. I'm still here, just not "here" completely. This blog has served its purpose, its calling.
And now, it's time for me to focus on the rest of my journey, of which you were all an amazing part of.
What will I do now, you ask? Well, for now, I'll enjoy motherhood. I'll encourage myself to be the best wife and mother that I can be. I'll concentrate on homeschooling, homemaking, and loving them both, even through the hard days. And most of all, I'll be still, quiet, and patient...as the Lord takes His precious time showing me what He has planned for me next.
Do feel free to follow me over on my Boogers and Jesus blog. It is not updated often, as it is more personal than anything else. I also have a facebook page setup for it, though again, not updated often.
I hope that you understand, and I feel as though most of you will. This is something that I have prayed fervently about this evening, and more than ever, I know that it is the right step in my journey with Christ.
I challenge you to make your marriage a priority -- to be the spouse that the Bible calls you to be. I encourage you to search the word of God, and not only to search His word, but to search His heart....often.
Until next time.....
Love and Blessings,
Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders, let me walk upon the waters, wherever you would call me. Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander, and my faith will be made stronger, in the presence of my Savior.
