When I first started writing on my old blog, Blessed Beyond Measure, back in 2009, I was very timid and shy about sharing my whole heart with people. Granted, I have always been better at sharing “on paper” than I have in person but I still wasn’t sure how much I wanted to put out there. Over the years that I kept that blog, I found myself sharing more and more of my heart. Sometimes it might have been a clip of music and sometimes a full post on something near and dear to my heart at the time, but whatever it was, I was opening up. I had found myself, my voice if you will, in this world and was learning to share it.
Then life took a turn. My son began experiencing more and more problems than ever before and life got really hard. We didn’t realize at the time, though we know now, what he was dealing with and so I felt lost. Every time I sat down to write, I couldn’t find the words. I knew I needed to write, but I wouldn’t be able to. I knew I needed to get all of that out so I could think straight again, but I just couldn’t. It was a rough time.
That’s when I felt God moving me to close out Blessed Beyond Measure and start thinking of a new chapter in my writing. I wanted a place that was a safe place for me to write and for others to be a part of and share. I wanted a place where we could all talk about our struggles and encourage each other or just be there to listen to each other. I began thinking about my life, my faith, and I knew I was kind of tripping through it all as I worked to figure out what our life would be like now and how we would get through it all. So, I started this site, Tripping Through Faith (you can read about this blog here).
Over the last few months, I am beginning to find my voice again. Life is still very hard and we are still struggling with things that are out of our control, but I’m “tripping” through my faith here with you all as I figure out where I am.
