First Post

Hi there! I am so new at this in every way so bear with me, OK? But it is so neat how God can use this as the  topic of my first post.
A friend of mine suggested i start a blog, and so after giving it some thought and seeking God about it, I was given the “inner” go ahead. 
I thought this is gonna be so easy! I did a step by step How to Start a Blog online. Let me just say, it all quickly started to become a bit overwhelming. And I was like this obviously isn’t something for me, I am not meant to do this. It’s way too complicated for someone like me, so should I even be doing something like this to begin with?  Maybe I should just quit? 
‘I’m not saying that I have this all together, that I have made it. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don’t get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all this, but I’ve got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I’m off and running, and I’m not turning back.’ Philippians 3:12-14 (MSG)
What an amazing verse! And just at the right time too! After doing the step by step, I became aware that I must have missed something because I couldn’t find what they had me install and blah blah blah. It made me so frustrated! So i just closed the computer and thought not gonna happen.
I was doing my nighttime devotional and just told the Lord I was casting this on Him, so I would sleep without this weighing on my mind. Well 4 am and I woke with this thought to look in my email. I did and followed the emails and links to lead me to this spot!!!  I’m so happy i didn’t give up. What if everyone gave up after the first few tries? I’m glad Jesus didn’t give up on us.  Where would we be if He did???!
I sure don’t have it all together and I am definitely no expert, but i keep my eyes on Jesus. What has been on your heart? What do you dream of doing? If he is calling you to do something bigger then you ever dreamed of and you just might be on the verge of giving up. DON’T! Just take one day at a time, one step at a time, one breath at a time.  Build your faith up in the word and rely on the one who is The Expert, He knows it all!
