Becoming Me's Blog Mission's Tour

     Why do I blog?  It is my place to share the treasures in my heart.  I have heard Papa God calling me to write for some time.  I have run from the calling due to discouragement and feelings of inadequacy.  Yet the desire is so deep to express all that He has revealed to me that I can no longer run.  My desire in blogging is to share the revelations of God to my heart.   I spent many years living a religious life that left me weary and worn down.  Papa has invited me into the joy of living in His sweet embrace, experiencing a love that is not earned but freely given.  As I grow in this intimacy with Him, I want to share the beauty of His deep, intimate heart of love.

    That is why I blog.  As you stop by my blog, may you see His heart calling out to YOU, to enter in, cease from your own efforts and find rest in His embrace.

Excellent purpose! Papa's Love letter to you has many GREAT Chapters and books! I sensed HIS HEART in your Internet Cafe devotion! I just finished reading my a.m. emails and there you were!
Very meaningful..and some beautiful healing...but the Lord will complete the good work that
He began in you and your daughter
or anyone's children! Bless you for sharing and thank you for your heart...thank you for His embrace!

This is so beautiful. Even as a newer reader to your blog, your devotion to "Papa" is immediately evident. Your insights and reflections as you bask in His love are both a joy and challenge to read. (So very glad you stopped running and began writing!)

This line especially resonates with me... "Papa has invited me into the joy of living in His sweet embrace, experiencing a love that is not earned but freely given." Stepping out of rigidity and legalism, the newfound sweetness of Papa's freely given love is truly, as you say...sweet.

So glad God cross my path with yours. You're indeed a blessing.
