In the month of October, I am participating in the 31 Days of Writing challenge. This will be my first time for it. I have had an idea for a bible study for a couple of months now. This challenge seems like as good a time as any to dive in.
I want to settle in to what it means to be called, to be the beloved, to be a daughter, to be accepted, to be chosen, to be of faith, to be loved, to be forgiven, to be whole, to be authentic, and to belong. What does it mean when all of those things collide? A beautiful mess? Filthy ashes? A phoenix rising? I want to know. Life is too short not to explore and excavate the depths of who we can become.
Today, I give myself permission to fully be. You can do that same for yourself. We are never more alive than when we are most ourselves. We are beautiful stories unfolding.
You can following along with the excavation, demolition, and reconstruction here.
