get a grip

So take a new grip with your tired hands and strengthen your weak knees. Mark out a straight path for your feet so that those who are weak and lame will not fall but become strong. Hebrew 12:12-13

One of the biggest challenges for me since I started blogging is appreciating what is mine. Pushing back covetous thoughts towards other bloggers is ridiculously hard. It’s a silly thing but it’s my reality. It’s easy to become absorbed in the world of fashion and blogs. When I sit and think about it, it is pretty silly. I’m obsessed with these ladies lives, yet I have no clue who they are! The fact of the matter is those girls are real. They have real lives. Real struggles. Real joys. Real downfalls. Each one of them probably deals with the same things I deal with. There will always be someone above you. Someone you wish you could be like. That’s my downfall. I need to learn to appreciate and embrace what God has given me. I need to learn to use my blog as my platform for getting my voice out there. I goal for my blog is to make it a platform for truth. I want to talk about real life on here. Not just the good things or the bad things, but everything in between. I don’t want to make it a vanity contest or a website all about Kristen Soileau. I want it to reflect the life God has given me.

Being able to travel overseas should have me thankful for a lifetime! I don’t give God enough credit where he deserves. He has pulled me out of numerous dark situations. He has enabled me to travel safely overseas twice and soon to be three times. He has financially provided for all of my families needs in every way. We have never been without anything.
