In the Midst

When do I blog? I’ve realized a pattern in my blogging (FINALLY!!) This blog isn’t really present memories, thoughts and happenings. This blog is more present hurts, anger and struggles. I come to this blog to write when my journal just won’t cut it. The reason that my journal just won’t cut it is because I have too much hurt, too much anger, or too strong of a struggle. I need to shout, not quietly work it out in my own little corner.

That is kind of what it is. I’m a yeller by nature and by nurture. I’m a loud and open person. So sometimes, journaling doesn’t work! Sometimes I need to yell and those are the days that I blog. So maybe it is more like present hurts, rantings and struggles.

But you know what? In the midst of all this hurt that either I’ve experienced or I’m watching others experience, in the midst of all the anger that I feel, and in the midst of all those struggles I do have one constant thing I can count on (or maybe a couple, depending on how you look at it). I know that I can count on Christ and Him crucified. I can count on the grace that came from His death and resurrection. I can count on that! I can stand on that. It is enough because it was finished at Calvary.

So in the midst of hurt, in the midst of anger, in the midst of struggles, I know God is good ALL THE TIME!


About Melanie

My Being Purpose Statement: As a part of Christ's Bride and as one of His precious treasures whom He redeemed with His precious blood, I purpose in my heart to love and adore Him with all of my heart, soul, and mind (Matthew 22:37). I want to be beautiful in the sight of my Saviour, Jesus Christ. I will therefore pursue holiness (1 Peter 1:16) that I might worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness (1 Chronicles 16:29, Psalms 96:9) and go and proclaim His love, sacrifice and salvation to others who have not heard that I may have the beautiful feet of them that bring glad tidings of good things (Isaiah 52:7, Romans 10:15). My Life Purpose Statement: I desire to serve my Redeemer and Savior Jesus Christ throughout my entire life by ministering to girls and women. I pray that I will be able to bring many girls and women to the Cross of Christ that they may find salvation from a loving and gracious Savior. It is my heart’s desire to encourage girls and women who know the Savior to deepen their relationship with Him and to fall more and more in love with Him. I also want to serve women by assisting them in their everyday lives whether I am rolling up my sleeves to work alongside them or am connecting them with people, ministries, and or resources that will be helpful and beneficial to them. By God’s grace and power, through His Spirit, and for His glory will I endeavor to fulfill this purpose
