My Messy Masterpiece

For we are God’s masterpiece.  He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. — Ephesians 2:10 

I've struggled in life. I've been pushed to the breaking point, my faith has been challenged and tested, and I have been ashamed at my own life. These are all things I am willing to tell you because I have learned that I am a mess, but I am God's mess. I am a mess. I am a beautiful mess. I am God's masterpiece. Although I have faced struggled and challenges in life, God has created me, he had thrown the challenges and road blocks my way because I am His. 

I created this blog three months ago, and this is my second post (three months late). I guess I was trying to muster the courage to open my past up to strangers, and friends and family. I think sometimes it's harder to share to your friends and family because they know you and have an image of what you are or what they think you should be in life and sometimes you can't live up to that. Strangers don't know you, they come into something unbiased, sometimes, but I feel they can't be as judgmental as someone who knows you. Maybe I'm wrong, please don't prove it to me. 

I had this image of what this blog was going to be. Sharing my past life experiences through a variety of mediums, whether be songs, pictures, poems, short stories or blog posts, I plan to share with all of you what makes me a beautiful mess. To keep the variety, I will share my present and future, as well, what is happening in my life, the life questions and struggles that I face everyday, the craziness of working in the Youth & Aquatics department at a very nice country club, my training of swimming and trying to become a triathlete again. My Messy Masterpiece doesn't define my past. It defines me as a whole, as a child of God, a recent college graduate and a woman who has no idea what she wants to do with her life, except live a great and sometimes messy one. 

I hope you enjoy what I write and feel free to contact me and tell me what you think!
