50,000 Touches

Today marks a huge milestone in my recovery journey.  360 days ago I posted my very first blog post.  Five days short of a year later (today), I hit 50,000 views.

What does this mean?

That the Lord has kept up His end of the bargain.  

When I first felt prompted to create this blog I thought:
"But who will read it?"
The Lord answered:
"Just write, I will send them."
Like my own personal 'if you build it, they will come' moment.

And they have... He has sent them, and they have come... you, have come.

What a sacred mission it has been to spread hope to others who are struggling in the shadows.
To spread the Lord's message of rescue and healing.
To share and connect with some of the most noble, brave and valiant people on earth.
To be a part of a powerful movement of shame awareness and excavation.

I have never questioned that this was my mission.
I have never felt an ounce of regret.

I am forever grateful to my Lord...
...for sustaining me
and
...for protecting me
and
...for healing me
and
...for loving me

  2. What a great milestone! and a small evidence of how powerful writing, honesty, and sharing can be to aid recovery not only in ourselves but in those who we come in contact with whether in person or through any other media. those "touches" do make a difference. congrats!

  3. I am more than grateful that you listened to the prompting to start your blog. It's difficult for me to express the extent of my gratitude, but I think you know. I know that you are one of my 'smooth stones' - and I'm grateful to have been led to your blog. Love you! Yay for 50,000!!! Congrats!

  4. I love you how you said "The Lord has kept up His end of the bargain". When we walk into the darkness, holding tight to faith and trust in Him, the blessings come. Thank you for walking into the darkness and writing that first blog entry and then continuing to write.

Ezekiel 34:11-12,16

"For thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out. As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day. I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick"
