I have started this blog to continue my journaling. I have been journaling for over 8 years. I am now capturing my journaling into books. For the remainder of the month of December, 2017, my journaling and my blogging will overlap.
This blog, with my full intentions, are to replace journaling for me. I have captured a lot off line and now want to generate my content online. I have tried blogging before and I really enjoyed it. I did not continue with it because I got side tracked. Since then, my focus and my maturity level have increased and I have come to know and realize that blogging is easier. Journaling has been very convenient but transferring the content is not.
I am very excited about picking up blogging again. This blog will mimic my journaling, which I hope will keep my mental transition to a minimum. I have chosen this platform because I can use it anywhere; on my phone, laptop, library’s, borrowed gadgets, and more. There is no limit to my posting. Which, with my journaling, I was limited to my Apple devices, no libraries, and sometimes pen and paper.
The world is advancing. New generations are being born everyday. This era is growing more and more steadily to electronics. I have to keep up; I have to get onboard or miss out. Life will leave you behind and I refuse to be back there, straining to see what is happening in front of me.
So, on this blog, my day to day will be revealed. People I encounter. Places I go. People I meet. Lessons I learn and have learned and how God uses me. Nothing is limited because I live in a world, serving a God, of endless possibilities.
Of curse, I will keep you informed of the progress of my publishings and you, too, can hold me accountable. I have over 10 books written but none published. My goal this upcoming year is to publish 8 of them which will include my series of Conversations with God.
Conversations With God is comprised of 8 books, arranged chronologically, since 2015, with one entry from 2012. I have daily been capturing our conversations as He has led me through many valleys an over numerous hills. He has defeated legions of Goliaths for me and brought down insanely high walls. I have crossed many rivers and spent countless days and nights in the dessert. Living in the wilderness has become the norm. Trusting Him to have my back allows me to walk blindly, faithfully forward. I grabbed hold of the plow and I ask myself who is my mother and my father.
And then, only after 2 years of gaining testimonies, did I realize it is not by works. It is not the fasting, or the communions, the consecrations, the tests or the trials; it is the love that I have for my Heavenly Father and for everyone that I have and will cross paths with. I learned this through journaling. I learned this through relationship with the Father. I learned this through obedience to Jesus Christ. If it was of works I would boast but it is by grace through faith, which is a gift from God. A gift, just because, He loved me first. A gift I did not realize I had and that I could only open after He called me and brought it to my attention. I love Him for it and you will witness that in this blog.
When I am not blogging I am posting on Instagram @alatoyav.
