I know that I write and speak an awful lot about Ann Voskamp here at Angela talks ... .
What many of you don't realize is what drove me to blogging ... journaling online. I was dry. Dry and parched was the state of this soul. I had once tasted and saw that the Lord was good, but through life experiences I had become solemn and hard within. My writing in the form of this online journal was just another outlet of my soul's anguish. The soul that held on for dear life. The lost soul trying to find the life she had once had. I was searching for the "me" that I use to be. The me that I'd once loved.
My heart was clenched and closing down!
As I began to blog I could feel myself coming alive again, but I was still pretty tight. Thanks to the reading Ann's blog ... reading it as if it were a book, clinging to it night after night, falling asleep with it on screen even. In this I'm relearning. Being retaught and I'm slowly opening up again. I'm coming alive.
I've bought her recommended prayer books, am praying more now then ever before and am now trying to memorize the book of Ephesians ... living in His Word.
Fears are leaving, hope is returning and I know that God is good! And I remember that I am loved and that His grace is ever abounding.
I believe Ann Voskamp's writings is to me what Kathleen Norris and others writings have been for her: a life line.
I thank God for the ministry of blogs and I thank God for many people who give of themselves and their talents through blogging. Please do keep it up!
Anyway, I came across this post of Ann's on The Lord's Supper and wanted to share it with you.
‘Our Father who is in heaven,
