Welcome!

Welcome to my new blog!

"You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore." Psalm 16:11




I was inspired to start a new blog based on what God has been teaching me lately- that abiding in His presence truly brings joy. I see this verse played out in some capacity every day of my life, and I imagine I will be learning this lesson for the rest of my life. 
Thankfully I have a very patient Teacher! 


I hope that this blog will be a reminder to myself to rest in His presence, not worrying about what I will do the next day or the next year or if things will turn out the way *I* want them to.


Something that I'm continually learning is that when I trust Him, things ultimately turn out better than anything I could have dreamed. Things are not always easy, but with Him I know the struggle isn't the end of the story.


The purpose of this blog is also to be an encouragement to people of all walks of life. My purpose is not to show how "successful" or "religious" I am. If anything, it's to show that I struggle, I make mistakes, I get frustrated, I am self-centered. 


But by God's grace He is teaching me truths that are changing my life.
