Well hello and welcome to my first blog post…ever! I am officially off to the races and excited for all this new adventure will hold for me. So, I’ll start off by saying, I refuse to be put in a box! So at present I don’t have one main theme or focus for this blog because I am a woman of many interests and topics I chose to write about will vary for sure :0) I plan to make this post short and sweet. I have to start somewhere, right?! I chose the title Loved without Limits for my blog because that is my story. I am a messy every day average woman loved by an amazing God who puts no limits on his mercy towards me, or you for that matter! It is for Him that I write and for Him that I live. I’ve made many mistakes along the way but I can always count on His love to bring me back.
Today, my hubby and I shared our testimony in front of our Sunday School class. I have shared personal things about me before but never really in a mixed group like that. It was an amazing opportunity and I suppose now that I put myself out there at church, I might as well take the leap into being vulnerable via social media! Hey, I say if sharing my messy life encourages other people to do the same, then I’ll be the first one to sign up. You know, I lived a long time believing I couldn’t show my weaknesses because I feared it would misrepresent Jesus and make people think I was a phony. The truth is, the opposite is actually true. It is through vulnerability and weakness that a person becomes approachable and represents Christ to the world. God knew we were imperfect when he made people the vehicle by which he was going to represent Himself to the world so He obviously thinks weakness can be used to bring others to intimacy with Him. There are no perfect people so I’m thankful He works with us and uses us where we are at with what we are able to give.
So I leave you with a question today…How are you taking risks in being vulnerable in your relationships with God and with others lately? It is a risk! I won’t lie. You can get hurt by people and wish you never opened up. But, the benefits far outweigh the negatives! My challenge for you is to take some relational risks in the next few days. Just wait and see what God will do! Thanks for visiting my site!
Loved without Limits,
