Hello, I’m Robin. I am so glad you’re here. My hope is that after you’ve visited this blog, you will step away from your screen reminded that you are loved by God and that you are not alone. I believe you can do amazing things. I’ve known what it’s like to not believe that in your heart…but you will. Just keep moving forward, and give yourself the grace to fall down…a lot! Then get back up, dust off your pants, and keep your focus on the joy that life can be.
Easier said than done, right? That’s why I love the word perseverance. I like to imagine that word is my middle name. Choosing joy and choosing to trust in God is not always easy for many of us. But when you put it into practice, you’ll be so glad you did. You may not see the bounty of the little seeds of faith that you’re planting right now, but know that some day you will. So just keep at it!
Who am I? By day, I am a diligent teacher of elementary students and the rest of the time an amusing wife (someday I could write a book on my hilarious cooking mishaps). In public, I am generally quiet yet (hopefully) friendly, and often can’t find my words while trying to have a conversation. But there is a place in my heart that has always loved to write.
So this is my space, and I’m excited to share it with you. To encourage not only you, but myself, as well. To share with you God’s sovereignty and grace and to remind us both the love of Jesus, who died for our sins. To dare to empower you and embolden you to find the brave heart within you, and to realize that you are good enough. You are strong. You are unique. And that is lovely.
Life is a roller coaster. It will always be full of ups and downs. Life gets busy, it gets hard, and it can be messy….it’s never perfect, we’re never perfect, and we will have our terribly gray days. Despite all of that, however, we can still choose joy and peace so that we can truly say at the core of our hearts “it is well with my soul”.
Thank you for visiting.
“I pray that out of [God’s] glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love surpasses knowledge–that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” -Ephesians 3:16-19 (NIV)
