Who Does My Help Come From


I haven't been writing much here because I feel like I'm saying the same things over and over and over and over....well, you get the idea.  I really don't do a lot since my back injury and I'm in pain and the combination can make for a very bad blog if you're wanting to share new information.  

However, I realized, this is my blog and this is my life right now.  I really only started blogging in the beginning to write down what was happening in my life and to write. Having my dear readers (and many have become friends) was a huge bonus that has blessed me beyond measure.  I have found myself starting to "write to the readers" instead of just sharing what is in my heart and what is happening in my life.  This has totally stagnated my writing here on my blog and affected what I write.  So, I'm gonna stop it! 

My life is what is is right now.  This is my season of pain.  This is my season of having to be home 95% of the time.  This is my season to seek my Lord and know Him more fully.  This is my season of having to focus just a little more on myself instead of others.  This is my season to write what the Lord has called me to write and to pursue my ministry and business online that I have longed to start.  I know that the Lord has a reason for this pain I'm in and whatever it is, it is for my good and His glory...and I mean that from my heart.  If my pain will glorify my Lord, if it will somehow bring others to Him, if it will magnify His love and His greatness then I welcome the pain.  I submit fully to my Father's hands knowing that He loves me and will always do what is best for me. 

I will be sharing what is happening in my life from here on out.  It may not be too exciting and it could even be redundant but I just want my blog to be real.  I want to share my pain, I want to share what the Lord is showing me, I want to be honest about those days where I spend the day crying off and on and, hopefully, one day soon, I'll be sharing that I'm doing much better.  I will share my journey and if you want to come along, I welcome you.

PSALMS 121  I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come?   My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth.   He will not let your foot be moved; he who keeps you will not slumber.   Behold, he who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.   The LORD is your keeper; the LORD is your shade on your right hand.   The sun shall not strike you by day, nor the moon by night.   The LORD will keep you from all evil; he will keep your life.   The LORD will keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forevermore.   God bless you - Julie

  1. Hi Julie, glad you found me! I, too, write my blog for me...it is my outlet. I have a heart for others suffering pain....never knew there was such a group of silent sufferers until I became one and you too....there has to be a bigger reason and we are ready. I wish my life didn't include burning/searing nerve pain 24/7, but it just does....and I'll tell you what - I sure am PRESENT since this happened. I am HERE. I love more deeply, feel more fully, hear more intently.....lots of gifts. And having just taught myself to crochet at the end of January, I have a new love and better yet.... a good distraction from the pain. Some day, I will print my blog and it will be my scrapbook...so it best include my true feelings, my true life. Eh? New follower, too!
