I send this personal invitation to my friends and family whom I feel have something to gain or offer towards the mission of my blog. For too long, I have perpetuated the lie that good Christians do not feel anger, inferiority, fear, failure, anxiety, jealousy, lust, control, pride, etc., by not being honest with my friends and family about my own struggles. I have become aware that many of my closest friends and family have dealt with, or are dealing with, some of the same things I am going through, and I am not alone. For those of you who have already been through some of the things I discuss, I pray you will share with others the way you have overcome. For those of you struggling, I pray you will be open and ask the hard questions, so we can all be set free from the feelings and thoughts that keep us from discovering our full potential, accomplishing the things God has set before us, and accepting unconditional love. I have sent this invitation to only a select few of my inner circle, but in an attempt to help any who seek it, I have made this blog accessible to the public. I encourage you to remain anonymous if you wish, and especially if it will help you to be open and share the most difficult things that would free you and others of a common bondage. I take a risk in authoring this blog. I trust that all who participate will be discreet in revealing information when sharing and not use this as a means to gossip or bring harm.
Each post has a comment button, which I strongly encourage you to use in an effort to help the most people and maintain anonymity. If you wish to be updated when someone responds to a post on which you've commented, just select the option on the comment form to receive an email when other comments are posted. I have included those of you receiving this email to receive an email each time I publish a new post, but you will not receive updates or comments unless you comment and select to receive further comments. I encourage everyone to please refrain from offering "advice", but rather to offer personal experiences, failures and successes, which can often help more than "good advice".
May those reading and participating in this blog be blessed with wisdom, revelation and healing. I pray our intentions will be pure and our hearts will be open to the work of the Holy Spirit. May our struggles and suffering be overcome by the power of Jesus Christ and used to further the spreading of the love of God and His gospel.
