Lord, thank You for the opportunity to come to Your throne in confidence that You hear my prayers. You're never tired of me or my heart. Thank You. Lord, I often take for granted the sweet gifts You have brought into my life. This blog, This is the Story of a Girl, is no exception. How did I go so long without asking You what You will for this space? Your Word says, As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts (Isaiah 55:9). I have prayed that each post would bring You Glory, but I failed to pray for Your "higher ways" over this blog.
Tonight, Lord, it's me and You. We're here in this space together because, Lord, I can't write without You. This space is Yours. It has been from the first post three years ago. Now, let's make it official.
Welcome to the dedication of my space, This is the Story of a Girl. May God use each post, each comment, and each visit for His Glory. Lord, make this blog a place of digging into your Word, a place of Holy fellowship, a place were facades fall away, and a place where hearts are unloaded. I realize my dependence on You for wisdom in this space. Lord, I pray that I never become proud or believe I'm to be celebrated for Your words. Please help me not to lead Your people astray with the words I write here. Guard the hearts of our visitors.
I'm so privileged to be with You, Lord, right here at this moment. Thank You.
I pray each request in Your Son's precious name, Jesus Christ.
My blog friends, I'm thrilled to be sharing this moment with you. Thanks for stopping by. Hey, let me know if you are here with me! As you can see, I'm making some changes in my space. Having you guys along for the fun makes it worth while. :)
For my fellow Faith Baristas, this blog is a passion that I have mistakenly tried to do my own way. Bonnie was right saying, "When we judge our gifting by how many people like what we do, we forget our loving Heavenly Father beams with over-the-moon delight over our smallest expressions of faith". I can't wait to read about your "expressions of faith".
In His Name,
