Into marvelous light I’m running

I forgot to post yesterday for the first time since starting this blog! Lo siento. I was partying last night all the way until 10:30. When I arrived home, I entirely forgot there was any other purpose to my evening than sleeping.

Last night’s party was just fun. Tonight’s party was sadder because it was a goodbye party for friends who are moving all the way to California. My “About Me” photo may be by the Pacific Ocean, but I do not live in California! California is a really good place to live.

In the midst of all my partying, I only felt socially awkward for about a total of a half hour combined. Not bad. Not bad at all.

In the midst of this, I have started to ask myself a question before I go somewhere or do something I fear, “Will I be just as loved after I go as before I go no matter what I wear or how awkward I feel or am?” I love that the only way I can answer that question regarding my current friends and church family is with a yes. A great big one. It makes it easier to face fear.

I faced fear this afternoon talking to the small group leaders at my church about Celebrate Recovery. Public speaking scares me quite a bit on a general basis. Though I do not usually show my fear too much while doing it. But the real fear I faced was actually admitting all my issues in front of all those people! I did not share my testimony. I just introduced myself like I do at CR, but that was scary enough in and of itself.

but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. – Isaiah 40:31

I shore am glad
