Go ahead I’ll wait on you.
Ok now that we’ve got that out of the way let me welcome you to my new adventure. So why am I doing this? What is With Arms High? Why did I shut down my old blog, abandon my jonese twitter account and stop referring to myself as jonese?
Because it’s time. God spent last year really showing me a lot of great things. I had a great year as can be seen by my old posts. But it wasn’t really me. It wasn’t till December of this year that I started to really learn to listen to God, learn his character, and figure out what His will was for me.
Sadly it took another 4 months before I really “got it”.
April, Easter more specifically was a really convicting time of my life. A lot happened in that month which basically slapped me across the face full force. I realized that I was just fooling myself and that I wasn’t fully surrendered to God. I was allowing my agenda, my desires, my wants to out weigh His needs and His plan for me.
I was on the verge of screwing it all up but lucky for me God had different plans.
It took me having some very tough conversations with myself to come to this conclusion. I had a lot of stuff I had to own up to. I had a lot of changes which I was only half ass making. I wasn’t who I wanted to be, and I saw myself making excuses.
So I stopped it. I stopped blogging, I played around with my twitters, I had conversations with God that I hadn’t never had.
I got real. I got convicted. I got intentional. I surrendered.
This is not where I saw myself, honestly I had much different plans. I don’t like everything about where I am but I find great comfort in that. Why? Because I’m not where I want to be, so I must be right where God wants me to be.
Now that is a great way to start a journey…..
