How I Turned My Pain Into Purpose (Glad To Be Back!)

I had to come back and rewrite the title and intro to this post because I realized the error of my ways. I wanted to express that my long hiatus was really unintentional, and at the time, I felt out of my control. And what seemed like it would take a few days to fix turned into a few months.

I truly am glad to be back, and I just wanted to apologize to my fellow bloggers/readers for my abrupt absence. Thank you to all who have supported my blog. I really, really do appreciate it.

Here’s the back story of my absence:

My Mac went into a died. I tried to doctor on it myself and later took it to the technician only to be informed there was no hope. No hope? No hope? I felt like I was under attack, and I was not going out like that!

But the truth is that I struggled with what I was going to do. This blog was, after all, a part of a ministry that God had given me that had been silenced. After several days of contemplative prayer, light shone into my darkness. I decided that I would come out of this situation better than when I went into it.

I Decided to Let My Pain Move Me Into Action

And so, I have spent the last few months building this online ministry. Atlas, I went into creation mode and started developing the projects that the Lord had been speaking to me about. Yet, I had not gotten around to completing any of them. After I decided that I would refuse to be defeated, I looked up and saw the light. I didn’t see it before (I was too devastated), but my daughter’s Mac was literally stuffed in a small drawer of my desk where she had left it for the summer. Hallelujah! I was back in business. And I had a lot of work to do. What happened next was nothing short of amazing.

After a few weeks of rolling up my sleeves and getting down to business, I am excited to announce the launching of my new blog home, the grand opening of my online store- Inspirational Wall Art, our new Youtube ministry channel: Bold As A Lion Outreach Ministries, and my new author website.

I invite you to take a tour and browse around. I pray that you, too, will get inspired to kick the procrastination habit-move beyond the distractions, stay the course, and finish that assignment that you have been meaning to finish.

So grateful to be back! Grace and Peace.
