I feel as though I must re-introduce myself as my humble, little blog has been left unattended for quite some time. When I first started this blog, I was so excited about the prospect of having a platform to share my thoughts for the world to read. I also had this grand idea that I could become a full-time blogger and make money from it. How mistaken I was. God had other plans for me and for this blog.
There was a time in my life where this blog was a secret to everyone that knew me well. To this day, only a select few people that I trust know that this blog exists. Why? Well, to answer that question would be quite simply that I allowed pride and fear to control me for a very long time. Any post that you read on here prior to this post is that of a girl reaching out, or hoping to reach out to anyone who felt alone because she did. The old me felt so alone and so unable to find hope. Hope lied before me, yet I couldn’t put full trust that it would really fulfill me. Many days and nights I spent wondering why I even tried to make things good or be good. I contemplated life and if it was worth the hardships and pain. This sounds so sad, I know, yet I have been challenged in the last few months of my life to be as honest as I can both with myself and with those around me.
With all of that said, let me start over.
Hi. I’m Gabbie. Yes, there are posts here that are signed with Delaney. Delaney Faith was a pen name because I was scared for people I may know to read about me and my innermost fears and struggles. But if I am to do what God has called me to do, I have to first start with being who He has made me.
I am so far from perfect, yet so loved by God who is perfect. I do not deserve His love, second chances, grace, mercy or any part of who He is. I like to think of my life as a mosaic piece of art as it’s not perfect, but because of Christ, it is beautiful. I wish to share that broken, yet beautiful life with you.
From now on, my goal is to share with anyone who reads this what God has done in my life and what He has taught me. Not because I deserve any recognition, but because the work of Christ in my life is too wonderful not to talk about.
