Update on Life and Blogging [10.14.19]

How have you all been? I genuinely want to know. How are you doing? How can I be of any emotional or spiritual assistance to you?

Sorry, I went MIA for a bit. I am thankful to be able to step back into this space of my blog and share what has been going on. Not only the struggles, I want to carve out a space to share His provisions as well.

Update on Life: It has been busy on my end. On September 12, my mom broke her ankle in several places – which did require “next day” surgery. While her ankle is healing well, her pain has not lessened by any means. I am doing what I can – as far as caring for my family. Making sure they have something, anything, to eat. But some days, I fail even in that area.

I can only do so much with my own health concerns. Lately, I have been resting more than serving. But, isn’t that the story of my life? Maybe so. While I may not be as apt to serve others in my current circumstances, I can choose to offer a listening ear to those who are in pain, depressed, or struggling in another way.

Recently, I started a little journey into the world of Vlogging.

While Gracefully Overcoming’s YouTube Channel isn’t as neat or organized as others, I have allowed myself to simply have fun sharing an encouraging word and a quick message on how I am doing.

The Goal –

In all of my platforms, the goal is the same: to encourage others and glorify Christ!

I have some pretty specific goals for both my blog and vlog. They both are to provide biblical encouragement that meets us where we are. I want us to receive bite size encouragement that is doable with our current circumstances.

I want others to receive much needed encouragement and offer you some joy and God-given peace despite the circumstances you are facing. May we keep our eyes on our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

If anyone has any questions or wants to chat, I am just a comment or message away. The most reliable (and quickest) way to reach me is through Gracefully Overcoming’s Facebook page. And if any of the posts resonate with you, hit that “share” or “comment” button.

Talk with you again soon.

In Christ,

By Gracefully Overcoming
