A beginning, again…

As I spent time setting up this blog, trying to get my “space” all customized and cozy, I realized I have never paid attention to other people’s first blog posts. Does anyone talk about setting up their blog ON their blog? Or is it just me?

Well, I’ll be honest, the process has been a bit frustrating. I thought I was pretty good at getting into a user-friendly program and just learning as I go… but WordPress has me feeling a little insecure! Maybe it’s the blog world in general; the very idea of starting a blog – ME, a blog? Yikes. Yep, insecure is one word that comes to mind. I am a private person, am I going to share my life with strangers now? Hehe.. I think so.

And a blog about God? One of the most heated topics of conversation in the world.. but one of my favourites 🙂 I’m no expert, though! I named the blog How To Lean because that’s what I am learning, and I would love to include others on the journey. We have things to teach each other. How do we lean on God, in hard times? What about in good times? And does it seem like there are more and more hard things happening to you and those around you? Our world is changing rapidly. We need to be leaning on our loving Father, or we’ll fall into despair when the hard times come. Honestly, I’ve spent too much time in despair. God loves us, and He wants us close. Leaning. I’m trying to learn how to lean well. Join me?

God, please show us how to lean on You, how to draw near and let You hold us up. Your strength is made perfect in our weakness. Show Your strength, Lord. In Jesus’ name, amen.
