It occurred to me today that I am over thinking this blog thing way too much. I need to go back to the basics.

Why did I want to start a blog in the first place?

Hmmm, there were several reasons: to process my spiritual journey and the transitions I have experienced in the past few years; to hone my writing skills; to share concerns and observations about life; but mostly? Obedience.

The name isn’t a joke. I am (and will probably always be) a mess. Choosing to live out the mess with God makes me a sacred mess. Life itself is The Sacred Mess. However, in my messy life I have received some pretty clear direction from God. One is to start a blog.

And i haven’t been very obedient doing that.

There is always a distraction. Or a lack of inspiration. Or I don’t like what I’ve written. Or a hundred other excuses.

Huh.

The truth is God isn’t looking for perfection, He’s requiring obedience. If I can learn a little along the way, that’s great. So… here goes!!!
