A Little Piece of My Heart

7 May

“I still haven’t found what I’m looking for…”

 When Bono and the boys of U2 first released this “gospel song for the restless spirit” there was a huge backlash from the Christian community. How could someone who claims to be a follower of Jesus Christ possibly believe that they had not found everything they were searching for in the Son of God? Knowing God and the peace that He brings is an end in itself, but no one can hang up their hat and say, “That’s it, I’m done.” U2 knew what they were embarking on with the release of this album.

 “At one time, I thought you had to have all the answers if you were going to write a song, so it was embarrassing to make a record that was filled with doubts and questions.” ~ Bono

 However, it is perfectly fine, in my eyes at least, to be secure in your faith and yet still have questions. God is still God and will continue to love us as we seek out His will for us, or wander down a different path.

 This song has been an enduring theme in my life. I wholly believe that I haven’t found what I’m looking for. Everyday I discover new aspects of myself, what I believe to be true and how to apply these discoveries to my life and the world around me. I’m ok with not always having the answer to every question. I’m ok with not always being right. I’m an optimist…an eternal optimist. That is who I was created to be.

 I believe that until I breathe my last breath I will never be fully satisfied. There is always more to know, more to see, more to love, more to discover.

 That is why I am so ecstatic to share my journey with you. I am continually inspired by the world around me; the people I meet, the friends and family I love, the things I see and hear. This is what I want to communicate to anyone who will listen. I promise that this entire blog is not dedicated to Bono and my love for him (though he may make an appearance from time to time 😉 ) I want to share what excites me and makes me passionate about living life. I’ll share with you small biographies of my amazing friends; they’re so amazing that you should know them too!! I’ll share song lyrics that move me, I’ll share quotes that motivate me, anything that makes me go “HECK YES!!” Maybe even a recipe every now and then.

 I can promise that I will bring nothing but light and encouragement into you life on a weekly basis. As I search for what it is that life holds for me, I hope that I can support you on your journey. Please share with me your stories too!! Something greater and better is always out there. I desire nothing but new open doors…

Welcome to my heart!
