Hello to all of you that have liked, shared, commented, and followed Free To Fly Now. I will do my best but in my heart there truly are not enough words to describe what you all mean to me. So, without further ado, here goes:
I will not profess to say that these are the only words. Without you there is no purpose. Without my fellow bloggers I cannot share with the world other viewpoints and wisdom. God truly opens a new door when one closes. After closing the door on a.once thriving and published online support community (10 years running), The Lord paved the way for us to come together here. This journey has come with great cost but also with great benefit. It has been amazing going from “Find The Light” to “Free To Fly Now”. The greatest lesson learned is when I/we listen to that still, small voice there is purpose. There is peace. There is grace and there is mercy. Having to close a door isn’t so disappointing because when we know that we are in God’s perfect and pleasing will, Romans 12:2b He always has larger and grander plans than we can conceive.
I want to give a special shout out to Proverbs Online Bible Studies. If it wasn’t for them encouraging me to join their “Blog Hop” in my very first study (Let.It.Go by the talented Karen Ehman) Free To Fly Now wouldn’t be what it is today. I would be remiss if I didn’t commend Lysa Terkeurst and her highly beneficial COMPEL TRAINING online writing community. If you are interested in either one of these worthy communities I highly encourage you to take a good look. Have questions? Please leave a comment. Your comments are cherished and welcomed. Stay tuned for blog enhancements and information on the next Bible study by Lysa Terkeurst, “The Best Yes, Making Wise Decisions In The Midst Of Endless Demands” It is a page-turner!
