My Journey… May 2009

Seven years ago, much like now, I was coming out of one season and beginning a new one… walk with me and remember.

Ok everyone… I have finished my 18 month Elementary Education Grad school program…!!! But only through the grace of God and support from so many of you. I am graduating next Friday, May 15th!!! Now I can start looking for a job as a teacher. WOOHOO!!! Pray for me that I find something. But I am not worried because my trust is in the Lord and He will put me where He wants me. I have learned to trust in Him and persevere through this journey. So I have written some thoughts I wanted to share with you guys. Love you all and thanks for your support, prayers, encouragement, and love.

As I write this today, I have yet another journey complete.
Though as I look back, it is necessary to remind myself that it was more than me…
Over the last eighteen months of my life,
I have passed through many trials and much strife
I ran up against constant hardship and often felt despair
Too many times I didn’t want to go on…I didn’t think that I could!
I often cried out and questioned my choice…
Everything around me seemed as though it was falling apart!
But each time, in my darkness…
came the light of truth…
and that quiet and subtle voice
And then I remembered Jesus and His Words in my heart…
So I was relentless, I pushed on, I gave it my all
I continued to get back up each time I stumbled and did fall
For when I gave You thanks and praise
I felt the joy that was meant for me…
Each and every day!
In the end You were there to walk me through…You never left my side
So now I bow down and give all the Glory to You…
My God…Your words and Your love are forever true
And for that…with ALL of my heart and soul…I Thank You!!!!Dock

Hi! Welcome to my page! I am a fairly avid writer in spurts. By that I mean, as most of you I am sure, I go through periods in my life where I write a lot and then nothing for a while. I love it though and I feel great when I write!

My goal this year is to write consistently, everyday, even if it’s just a thought or a short poem. I like to write to share my thoughts with people. I hope to inspire others into thinking “outside the box” so to speak about life and what it all means. I love to dig into scripture and shares verses and my viewpoint on them as well as how I think they relate to life. Opinions are always welcome, as I am aware, not one of us is exactly right. Rather, what is right is a culmination of many different viewpoints. God has given us intelligence and imagination, together they become something beautiful.

I am new to blogging and cannot wait to learn more about navigating the site and utilizing the features better. I want to be able to share my blogs with people to uplift, encourage and bring hope! Come join me… ~Irene
