Don’t be fooled by the words that I got. I’m still, I’m still Jenny On The Blog. I know that was a cheesy pull from J.Lo but humor me. You’ll notice that the website is new and still in the works but that’s okay because I am, too. I decided to make things more streamlined a bout a month or so ago and to purchase a domain for projects going forward.
What is all of this for anyway? I’m so glad you asked! I’m currently working on finishing my first book and my hope is that it encourages others no matter where they’ve been, are, or are going. Life is hard but it’s not something we’re supposed to do alone. There are lots of bumps along the way and many of us get scratches and scars from said bumps. BUT GOD uses those to refine, renew, and even restore us. Know that where you are now isn’t where you’ll always be and hope for the future is never lost. NEVER. Keep moving forward in the midst of trails and know that you have people in your corner to pray for/with you, encourage, and hold you accountable. Heck, even last week a good friend of mine held me accountable with my attitude from an interpretation I made regarding a situation that hurt my feelings. We need people who do that. We weren’t created to do this life alone.
Some days flat out suck but others are filled with beautiful reminders of our purpose and that fact that not only is our God for us but also with us. It’s no secret that I love things that sparkle. Maybe it’s because I’m still a 4 year old at heart or it’s that sequins, glitter, and the like all remind me of glimmers of hope. Hope that God is still moving, working, refining, and loving us when we are kicking and screaming along the way. Those glimmers still sparkle when days are dark and exhausting. They can also be used for a random time of celebration when needed.
Going forward I plan to update on a regular basis and in the end, may it be said that this glorified God. Even on the bad/hard days, He’s faithful and still good. His character doesn’t change based on our circumstances. Our circumstances will change based on His character and faithfulness.
“I will exalt you, my God and King, and praise your name forever and ever. I will praise you every day; yes, I will praise you forever. Great is the Lord! He is most worthy of praise! No one can measure his greatness…” Psalm 145:1-3
