I’m Jessie and this is not my first blog. You laugh because YOU ALREADY KNOW THIS. Yes, the one you read and then POOF! Where did she go? Like a genie, that one.
I have a history of quitting and retreating when I’m overwhelmed. And by quitting, I mean EVERYTHING: social media, personal endeavors, community (both online and off)… For the sake of survival, I let it all go and focus my intent right back to the bare essentials— faith and family. Love: healing, reviving, faithful love. Love is the core of my wellbeing and I need to soak it in like the hard, cracked, dry sands of the desert. When you find yourself in that place of dryness, it takes time before you feel strong enough to crack the door open and peek out at the fast-moving world.
Well, that’s me. Over the past couple of months, I’ve started my reemergence. I’m not even going to tell you I’ll never disappear again because my track record stands for itself. But I will say my intent is to stand and allow the words to come. To let the Lord make them more.
Life was meant to be more.
Jesus told this simple story, but they had no idea what he was talking about. So he tried again. “I’ll be explicit, then. I am the Gate for the sheep. All those others are up to no good—sheep stealers, every one of them. But the sheep didn’t listen to them. I am the Gate. Anyone who goes through me will be cared for—will freely go in and out, and find pasture. A thief is only there to steal and kill and destroy. I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of.- John 10: 6-10 The Message Bible
Thank you for your kindness. I’m back online because of you.
Here are my fish and loaves, Jesus. Make them more.
