Who am I becoming?

Who am I?

I am a girl
I am a girl who loves Jesus
I am a girl who loves Jesus and is free to be ME
I can already feel a change with-in me since sharing my story with you. Not only did I share it with all my Bloggy BFF’s but I was asked to share it with my entire church.  I anxiously graciously accepted the request.
So on Sunday January 23rd, 2011, along with 3 other people from my church, I shared a part of my story. 
*sigh of relief*
Let me tell you, I was nervous. I was more nervous the day I received the phone call asking if I would be willing to share. I was literally shaking and may even thrown up in my mouth. By the time Sunday came around I was feeling much more confident. After reading all your sweet comments and words of encouragement I knew it was something I needed to do. I know that God hand picked that Sunday for me to tell my story and that he made sure that everyone that needed to be there was. I had such an overwhelming sense of peace. I know that having such a great prayer team made that possible.
Where does this leave me now? 
I am free to be me, free to live as the girl God intended me to be. 
Although I still struggle with some a lot  of my issues, I know that I have an accountability group that stretches across oceans! 
I am very thankful for everyone that has prayed for me, encouraged me, thanked me, and even followed up with me. It means a lot to know that so many people are there rooting for me, and accepting me as I am. Accepting all of me and the walking with me through this season in life. The season of change and growth
I am excited to see where this journey we are on takes us. I am looking forward to being real with you all and getting to know each of you more.
What has encouraged you this week.

  1. Hey Chrissy, the necklace you are wearing in this picture can you make it for me? If yes how much would it be?

  2. What has encouraged me this week? God works in mysterious ways, signs that I have received the last week or so, made me realize the decisions I have made have been the right ones for me.
    Also, my cousin received a heart last night and is doing fabulous after the transplant! Thanks for sharing Chrissy…
