Peanut Butter M&M's

Over the last few years, I've considered writing here and there, but I kept saying to myself, "Who really cares what I have to say?" And then it happened. God said, "Let there be writing!" All joking aside, I really felt a calling to begin writing again. Whether anyone cares what I have to say is irrelevant... because God cares. Every thought I have, every idea that crosses my mind, every part of me He completely loves and embraces.  My whole life I've been told I should write...all through school, in various jobs, but I never really believed it. After hearing God speak it, I decided I should believe it...after all He designed me, He knows better who I am than I do. I guess that means, I have finally come to terms with what He has laid on my heart. I have a story to tell that others need to hear. Without further ado, here is my first attempt at conveying how God has worked and still is working within me.

A couple years ago, I spent some time on a retreat with some of the most beautiful women of God I've ever known. Our speaker for the weekend began her Saturday morning session by doling out Peanut Butter M&M's...but only to a select few, one of which wasn't me. At the end of her lesson, she compared the M&M's to God's blessings in our lives. She pointed out how we often fail to share what God has given us or done for us with the rest of the world. We may share it with those around us, especially those in our church circles, as we should; however, what about those who don't know the power of Christ? Do they ever hear how Jesus made that last dollar turn into $100 when you gave it? Or what about when Jesus sent someone to bring you food without even knowing your fridge was empty? How often are we sharing today's miracles? They happen you know...miracles...God still performs them.

So the goal of this blog is that and more, I'm going to share my miracles. I'm going to put them into words for the world to see...words that will prayerfully change who you are and challenge the beliefs you do or don't have about my Jesus. You see, He is real and I've experienced Him as Lord of my life in a magnificent way...a way, or rather THE WAY...that will transform you. So would you like some Peanut Butter M&M's?
