While I was away being refreshed and getting some much needed color, God made some things very clear for me. The past few months has involved much narrowing down of commitments and passions, as I’ve shared in previous posts. I felt, last week, that God was continuing that process of elimination, and I feel very peaceful about the conclusions. With that said, this blog is going to change. This will no longer be one of my main focuses. Wait, don’t be upset! Let me finish.
One of the conversations I had last week with someone who is very passionately pursuing his gifts shared with me that even when God takes away a desire and replaces it with a new one (or a RE-newed one), that it is still wise to fulfill your commitments until it’s completion, and continue to steward your gifts accordingly. I have no idea if that makes any sense. Let me see if I can make that sound a little more coherent.
My desire for music has be re-awakened. With that came the diminished drive to do Jude And The Walrus, blog and etsy shop included. It was a feeling I started to have a couple of weeks ago, but was sort of in denial about it because I was finally getting the hang of the whole blog thing. I feel such a strong magnetism to writing music, singing, and becoming better skilled at the instruments I love. I even kinda want to get into the engineering and production aspect of music, and I couldn’t have married a better person to teach me how to do that!
Like I’ve said SO MANY TIMES, I’m only one person. And I committed a while back to stop committing so much- hehe. I feel peaceful about this decision.
Here’s where the stewarding my gifts accordingly comes in. Jude And The Walrus is not over for good. I will still be posting, but just not as much. The posts that I do share will be words that I feel God has given me throughout the week, and so there will be a lot less posts about thrift store finds, hair, etc. I will also be closing my Etsy shop. HOWEVER, I will still gladly make accessories of all kinds for anyone who wants them. So orders will become “upon request only” starting in July.
And now for the fun part of the post…
