31 Days of {RE}discovering Him :: Day 1 - The Beginning

I've kind of been putting off writing this all day....

Maybe because I am scared.

Maybe because I don't know if I can truly do this challenge.

Maybe because I couldn't figure out how to make my own badge. {sad}

But I am determined to move forward with this.

What is THIS??

{RE}discovering Him.

His heart.
His plans.
His purpose.
His desires

The way He see me.
The way I relate to Him.
The way He loves the world.
The way He values me.

And. So. Much. More.

But I am scared because I have been terrified to "get to know" this God that I have loved since I was 4 years old all over again. The hurt and the pain that I have gone through since then makes me hesitant to trust all over again, and yet, I know deep in the fiber of my being that nothing else is quite as good, as amazing, as perfect as His love, grace, and mercy.

I have been thinking about this for weeks, so I thought about planning my posts ahead of time, but then I thought, these 31 days should TRULY be about discovery. Some days I may reflect on lessons I have been learning all along, but I am really hoping/praying/believing that most of the days will be filled beautiful revelations along the way.

I am counting on that.

Will you join me in {RE}discovering Him too?


I finally figured out how to do a banner & a badge -- I liked the banner better! ;-)

I so understand your fear of re-discovering Him after such pain - I felt exactly the same at one point - I held Him at a distance although I wanted Him close - it hurt either way.  I'm coming through the other side now and there is a freedom and a relief in drawing close again - you think you can't do it - but you can ... I'll be reading :)
