About This Blog

God has put it on my heart to do this blog.  To make my journal writings and His Word more available for every one to see.  Also, future hopes are that this blog helps to provide for my family financially as a way to help me continue to be a stay-at-home mom.

I desire to put God first in my life, and I pray that shows through in this blog.

Two things that this blog will be full of:

  • Jesus
  • My family

These are what are important to me.

How I came up  with the name “Diary of a Forgiven”

Once I knew that I was going to be creating a blog, I was totally blank for what to name it.  I asked my wonderful husband (because he has a very creative mind) and he came up with “diary”.  I liked that idea since some of the posts will be from my prayer/study journal. But then I was still at a loss for the rest of the title.

Forgiven.  That is the word that came to me after about a week of thinking.  I am forgiven, and this is my diary.  It was perfect!  I am not forgiven because of anything special that I have done, but because of what Jesus has done!  All I have to do is ask for His forgiveness when I realize I have done wrong.

I want to tell everyone about the greatness of Jesus, what He has done for me, and what He can do for you!

That is what I have been called to do.  Jesus speaking, “And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” Mark 16:15 KJV

My hope for this blog is that we both grow stronger in our walks with Jesus.

I think the lyrics to this song best describe what I hope to accomplish and what I hope to do:

If I told you my story
You would hear Hope that wouldn’t let go
And if I told you my story
You would hear Love that never gave up
And if I told you my story
You would hear Life, but it wasn’t mine

If I should speak then let it be
Of the grace that is greater than all my sin
Of when justice was served and where mercy wins
Of the kindness of Jesus that draws me in
Oh to tell you my story is to tell of Him

If I told you my story
You would hear victory over the enemy
And if I told you my story
You would hear freedom that was won for me
And if I told you my story
You would hear Life overcome the grave

If I should speak then let it be
Of the grace that is greater than all my sin
Of when justice was served and where mercy wins
Of the kindness of Jesus that draws me in
Oh to tell you my story is to tell of Him

This is my story, this is my song
Praising my savior all the day long
This is my story, this is my song
Praising my savior all the day long…

 

I believe the Word of God is true, holy, powerful, and essential to life. If you feel that something I write is speaking to you, I encourage you to pray about it. Seek what God is trying to say to you.

Above all else I seek to please the Lord in all that I do, and desire to be used of Him.

This blog will be filled with Faith, Encouragement, the Word of God, and occasionally about myself and my family.

“And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men” Colossians 3:23
