I decided I wanted to create a daily record of my life -- the good, the not so good, inspirations, encouragements, and some rambling here and there.  However, this isn't my first attempt at a blog... usually, I make a blog (meaning work for hours to make it look like something that reflects me and the things I like), and then maybe write 1 or 2 blog posts before I get bored with it.  Or, I just can't contain my thoughts in an orderly fashion fit to share with the world.

But, today -- May 7th, 2012 at 10:58 PM, I am making a commitment to myself and to anyone patient enough to read and attempt to understand the mess of thoughts going on inside my brain.

I, JennyKate Webb, promise to commit to a minimum of 1 blog post a week.  Even if no one else reads it, it's motivation for me to think about a year from now and getting to read about all that God did in my life and the seasons of life that I've gone through.

Alrighty, so now that we've gotten all of that out of the way, I guess I'll start with a quick and current state-of-being.  I am 20 years young, almost done with my 2nd year of college, working on a Communication degree, still completely clueless about what life after college looks like or what I wanna do for the rest of my life for that matter, but also very sure that I worship a God who not only has given me life, but also wants me to live it to the full (according to John 10:10).  Even though I have no idea what the future holds, reflecting back over the past few years and seeing all the things God has done in my life, both good and bad, and how those things have helped to shape who I am today is a steady reminder that I am nothing without Him.

But, that truth goes deeper than just my 20 years (and almost 6 months) of life on this earth.  Jeremiah 1:5 says that God knew me before I was formed in the womb and that He had already set me apart before I was born... WOW!  That, alone, is confirmation that God's plan is legit because He already knew me when I didn't even exist on earth yet.

But wait, it gets better -- Psalm 139:16 says that He saw me before I was born and scheduled each day of my life before I even took my first breath.  I was born in response to God's intentional plan.  Every day, every step, and every circumstance -- it was all planned and recorded before I began life here on this earth.  God even knew what my strengths and my weaknesses would be AND made them part of the plan too!

And not only all of that, but according to 1 Thessalonians 5:24, this plan that God has for my life is guaranteed because God is faithful.  Whatever He calls me to do, He'll empower me to do and will provide every resource I need to accomplish it.

I can be so stubborn and strong willed as if my life really is mine, when in fact I belong to Jesus Christ because He shed His blood for me.  Because of that, I am free.  Matthew 28:19 calls me to go and spread the great news of Jesus to all the nations.  And Colossians 3:23 says that I am to work willingly at whatever I do, as if I'm working for the Lord and not for other people.  So, regardless of where I am or what I'm doing, my life purpose is to be the hands and feet of Jesus and to work heartily in everything.  

I have faith that the rest of the semantics of life will eventually fall into place, according to God's will for my life.  I know there will be days where I feel unsure, but I also know that as long as I remind myself to lean on the Lord, I will have no fear.
