Hello, my name is Ana. Welcome to my blog! I started this blog to motivate myself to write every day. I embarked on a writing journey to find out all I could about the writing world. There are a lot of techniques and ways to write. However, I enjoy writing because it allows me to share my feelings, experiences, inspirational/motivational things, personal interest stories, as well as writing information, with others. My goal is to write a daily devotional/journal. I am a Christian and have discovered that faith is never losing hope. I welcome your feedback and anything you would like to share. Thank you for visiting.
As another year is ending, I reflect on the year it was. I am happy to see 2010 go. For me it was a year of transition, challenges, growth, sadness, hurt, anger, with periods of joy in between. My faith in God has been tested and I questioned whether he heard my prayers or not, because I was not getting any answers. However, I truly believe he does not give you more than you can handle.
My pastor says not to let anything or anyone take away your joy. Though this may not be easy to do, it is worth a try. Some of the points he made on "JOY" are:
1. Joy comes after darkness
2. Joy comes after discomfort
3. Joy comforts all fears
4. Joy is contagious
5. Joy comes while on duty and serving
Here are two of my own:
6. Stop trying to help God out with your life, he has it covered and does not need your help.
7. God will listen and see you through.
In 2011, I wish you all a year full of self-discovery and growth, magical moments, endurance and perseverance, continued passion for writing, faith, no regrets, and a joyful spirit, heart and soul. Happy 2011!
