I’m so blessed by writing Holy Vacation Queen blog, it’s a sort of church for me, a spiritual practice, one of the ways I abide in God, and attune to God’s will, a way I separate myself from the voices of the world. I never knew how blessed I’d be by the amazing community of followers and faith bloggers. I’m deeply nourished by your comments and touched by your authentic yearnings to deepen your faith and to live holy, blessed lives that you go on to share with others.
I’ve also realized how important it is for me to retreat from writing, to just be with God without doing, to plunge deeper into my faith without words, to listen to the deeper language of faith and feel the subtle promptings of The Holy Spirit, and to focus on a new project that calls for my attention. So I’m taking a summer break from writing.
However, having also been blessed by reading many amazing blogs, I’m taking you on a summer blog tour of some of my favorite faith-filled writers. These women and men have blessed me tremendously. I know you will be filled and moved by their writings!
So without further ado, let me welcome you to the first in the Faith Blog Tour series! (PS..I will most probably pop in here and there when inspired!)
Have a blessed summer, I know you’ll enjoy this weekly series. Remember always, the spirit of God enfolds us, the truth of God holds us, and we are so loved and blessed! I love you all!
Faith Blog Tour Week #1:
This Dangerous Business by Rebecca K Reynolds from Thistel and Toad is one of the most beautiful descriptions of following Jesus I hve ever read. I hope you enjoy it like I have:
When I share Jesus with you, I don’t share Him promising you wealth or ease. Instead, I promise that if you take the risk of following Him, you will die deaths you can’t even begin to imagine right now.
If you follow Him, I doubt that He will entrust you with much money, (though He could). It is far more likely that He will teach you to live without depending upon it. He will show you that you have loved it too much, and He will begin to pry your fingers from it.
When I invite you to follow Jesus, I do not invite you to join a dominant cultural movement. I do not promise you refuge inside a comfortable group of educated, upper class, white people. Rather, I invite you to meet a God who will find ways to push you out of your regular social groove into questions you don’t even realize you need to ask and apologies you don’t even realize you need to make….
WE LOVE YOUR COMMENTS! DO say hi and let me know how the weekly blogs have moved you!
