I have been away for little over a year now but I believe God is bringing HBC back for His will. I have gone through so much this past year! It has truly been a year of challenge, growth, courage, and spiritual maturity, not to mention humbling. 🙂 But, I can truly say it feels great to be here! Life did get a little tough, so much so I seriously considered discontinuing this blog. However, I was reminded of Genesis 50:20: But as for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good… (Genesis 50:20 NKJV)
In retrospect, I can see how God used trials to refine, sharpen, and purge me; to add just one more notch to my spiritual belt. Even at this writing, the the things that I have been through I’m honestly reluctant to start blogging again. Everyone who knows me knows that I am an incredibly private person and to open up my life to these pages is a real challenge–to say the least. Nonetheless, we can all learn from each other, so maybe…just maybe there will be some things here each of us can grasp on our spiritual journey. Lord, let your will be done! I’m working on reorganizing and updating HBC while simultaneously learning how to navigate this site. Some items I plan to incorporate are: adding videos, links, pics, book reviews, current events and even health info too! I’m excited! I will also be adding: “straight from my diary,” pages I copy verbatim from my personal diary! Ooh oh! : ) Writing is healing for me and I try to write down and reflect on experiences I may have gone through on a given day. I would encourage everyone to keep a journal and write down your feelings daily, if you are not already doing so. You will discover and learn so much about God, yourself, people, and life in general. Thoughts are so fleeting and to put them in writing gives one a chance to know your intimate self, learn from your mistakes, and document your spiritual growth. Most importantly, it allows the Holy Spirit to speak through you! I can personally attest to that. Oftentimes I would go back and reread something I had written and it’s as if I had read it for the first time; I get a totally new revelation!
Unfortunately, I may not have as much time to write as I did before, so my personal goal is to write at least bi-weekly. I pray that God gives you much insight and wisdom on your spiritual journey! God Bless you!
