How It Got Started

My Why

First off, Welcome! I am so glad you're here! The idea of starting a blog came to me a few months ago. I had no idea why. I knew absolutely nothing about creating a blog or a website or what I was going to write about. I needed help making my Facebook account for goodness sakes. I'm also a very "keep to myself" type of person. BUT here I am. The Lord kept pushing and pushing this idea on me so I'm finally listening. You see, I think people need to hear my story. I think people need to hear how I went from a depressed, lonely, angry, anxious person with a drinking problem to someone who looks forward to the days ahead, completely free, sober and full of life! If you're here looking for a perfectly put together blog, with big words and extravagant pictures you are not in the right place. LOL it's taken me way longer to create this post than I'd like to admit. But what I can give to you is complete vulnerability. I promise to be real, raw and honest with you. I promise to share all that God puts on my heart to share. This will be a personal blog, talking about my personal life and how I've failed, struggled, fell flat on my face and then how I got up. I hope to share both past circumstances and present. I don't want to live in the past, but I feel like I'm going to be sharing a lot about it. Oh boy. It is my hopes that He will use it to help you. Yes, I'm talking to YOU. This idea didn't come from me. And even though I know I'll grow and learn from it, I know there's a bigger reason why God called me to do this. God hears you and maybe, just maybe He has something for you here. The title 'All Because I'm Chosen' came to me while I was sitting in church. My mind was distracted thinking about whether or not I was going to start this blog. I kept thinking to myself, "I'm not ready, I'm not smart enough, good enough or capable enough." And the words, "you are chosen" came to me. And then I knew. I had to do this. So I took those thoughts captive and I'm choosing the truth. And the truth is, God chose me. He loves me and He'll provide me with every single thing I need to do this blog and more. Even if just one person reads it and learns something, it's worth it. So, every time you type it out or read it, remember those words. You are chosen. You were created for this time, right here, right now. Use it wisely!  
Buckle up, ladies and gentlemen it's going to be a wild ride.
