Setting Aside the Fear

When I last blogged in late June, I was getting ready for a trip to Disneyland to celebrate my mom’s birthday. Something happened during that trip that changed my life overnight and I haven’t blogged since.

I had plenty to say and it might have even been therapeutic for me to share, but I couldn’t do it, because I knew I risked revealing more than I was ready to put out there. I think I’m close to being ready now.

One thing that is driving me to pick up blogging again is a desire to offer some words of hope to others who are, like me, going through a life-changing, heartbreaking time that is doubling as a call to trust God’s faithfulness on a new level. God is teaching me so much through this unsettling time that I feel like it would be wrong not to pass it on. He has also blessed me with an unbelievable support system at a time. Not everyone has that. By risking openness and vulnerability, perhaps I can be part of someone else’s support system?

So I’m setting aside the fear, trusting God to make it clear how much I should reveal and when, knowing that sometimes the details aren’t nearly as important as what came out of them.
