I'm Not Apologizing

I'm not apologizing that my Facebook or my Instagram look too happy. 

I'm not apologizing that I tend to share a lot about my life, my loves, my everyday happenings. 

I'm not apologizing that I put myself out there to connect, to love, to relate with others. 

I'm not apologizing. 

I'm not apologizing.

I'm not apologizing. 

I know there are people that want me to. I know that there are people that feel that my happiness somehow causes their own problems. I know that people complain when there is too much of my life on Facebook. I know that people think I push "share" too often. I know that there are those that would prefer I keep my content down to once or twice a week. 

But you know what?

It's not happening.

You know why?

Because I've learned that I love to share. 

It's not for the "likes" because sometimes I don't get any.

It's not for the attention because if anyone truly knows me they know I cringe at the sound of being the center of attention. 

It's not for people to feel sorry for me in my times of weakness. 

It's not for people to rejoice with me in my times of happiness, even though that's awesome!

It's not for anything but this...

I have been called. 

Called to share. 

Called to post.

Called to be happy.

Called to share that happiness.

Called to realize my weaknesses.

Called to share those weaknesses. 

Called to be myself always.

Called to love.

Called to connect.

Called to be real.

So I'm putting this out there...

I love the person that God has created me to be. I love to share the life that God has so graciously given me. I love to post pictures of my kids. I love to share my thoughts. I love to share quotes that I stumble upon that I relate to. I love to share my love of products that have changed my life. I love to share deals that I find because I'm a deal shopper. 

I love me because God made me the way that I am flaws and all. 

It took me awhile to get to this place. It took me awhile to feel confident in the person that God made me to be. 

I'm always amazed at some of the messages I receive from people. 

For every one message that complains about my love of sharing or persecutes me of who I am as a person I receive twenty more messages that thank me for being real, being authentic, sharing my life. My sharing reaches people. My sharing connects with those people. My sharing allows others to see God in my everyday life. 

God is present in everything. He is ever present in every aspect of our life! Why would I not want to share how He is working within me? Why would I want to keep that testimony from others? Why would I want to stifle the great joy that God can give? Why would I not want to share it all? 

Does it make me vulnerable? 

Of course. 

Does it make me stronger?

Stronger day by day. 

So I'm not apologizing. 

I'm not apologizing for sharing my life with all of you. As God grows within me, I grow too. With that growth comes this amazing desire to share everything with all of you because I deeply care and love you all. 

I want you to see what God can do in your life. I want you to see how God is so amazingly incredible in every single little detail in our lives. 

It's not just the big stuff. 

It's the every day things that happen to us all that can allow us to see how God is at work in our lives if we allow it. If we choose to see how God is working in every detail. 

He cares so much for you.

He cares for the little things as much as the big ones. 

I want you to see this. 

I want to share this.

I want to share my life with you so that you can see the amazing things God has done for me because He has done great things

God is good. All the time. GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME! 

God is good in everything and I share it. 

I'm not apologizing for that.
