Thankful...


As I sit here, and read through the messages so many of you left for me when subscribing to my 'Connecting the Dots... with Resse' blog website, I am overwhelmed. Literally, to the point of tears. And the tears flow not because I am so sure of what I am doing, or because I know the outcome of this endeavor, but because your support, for me, is a testament of how faithful God really is. And how He never falls short of His promises. I have been writing on a whim for the last few years, for no satisfaction other than getting things off of my chest, releasing positive waves into the universe, and exercising the means that works for me when dealing with stress, and processing certain scenarios in my life... I've never pushed myself to write these posts, but, simply, the Spirit allowed my thoughts to flow out of me through words on paper (or on screen)...sometimes I would wonder, Why? Why do I get this burning desire to write??? Why do I make little notes to myself while working so that I can go back later and elaborate, to myself mind you, on a thought I had earlier that day? I hold my breath while I try to get everything out, and I won't even gasp until it is out... for fear that if I breathe I may lose my train of thought...

I now know why... and I am thankful... Thankful to God for for keeping me as I continue figuring things out...for leading me and guiding me as I share what is on the inside of me... for being patient with me and ordering my steps as I continue connecting the dots...

I made a decision...a decision to take everything that's come my way and release it... and not just release it, but package it in a way that makes it meaningful to not just me, but to you, the reader, my supporters, as well... When I tell you that one day I sat in front of a computer, and thought to myself, "maybe I should make a website...maybe I should take all of the recent pieces I've written and store them there... maybe I can actually create some sort of brand that means something to me, and share it with others..." and that's how it happened... I sat, I prayed --- trust me, I doubted --- but even through the doubt, I just kept doing it...and even when the website was done, for a split second, I almost "nevermind-ed" the whole thing... but God! God sent whispers through close friends and loved ones... He spoke to my heart and soul... I was afraid, but in this particular order, I was obedient... I can't say the same for all aspects of my life, but in this, I was obedient...

On Friday morning, I launched a website and brand... Didn't say much, didn't make a big deal, thought to myself, this can go either way... but on Friday morning, I DID IT! And just like that, it's done... I've sat with monkeys on my back for years...things I want and need to do, that I just haven't ...and those monkeys are still sitting next to me on this couch as I write, sweating my life... (aggy lol), but THIS, I DID THIS!!! ONLY WITH THE HELP OF THE LORD!!!

Please be encouraged, that what's in your heart, mind, soul and spirit is real... It's real... You are not crazy... If you're not careful, you will sit on a dream, or a blessing, or your destiny, shackled with doubt and fear; paralyzed by overthinking everything you haven't done... Not realizing that God has everything in control... He has it covered... Just be obedient to the Spirit... Do what you know you're being called to do... and don't delay... even if you take little steps towards your goal each day, or if you can't find time each day, than each week, or each month... I knew it was real for me when I woke up at 3 am to write a thought down... if things are even haunting your sleep, or if you're restless over something, address, face it, and then do something about it.. With the favor of God on your side, all it takes is a little effort... just a little...God Himself will do the heavy lifting...

Trust that if He'd sacrifice His Son for us, surely He'd make the stars align for you as well...

Do your part, and let God do the rest...

Thank you, thank you, thank you, for your love and support, and willingness to be present with me in this moment... We are in this together...

Connecting the dots...
with Resse

I must admit, I was hesitant to create a blog site, for fear that it would lessen my creditibility as a writer...  Let's be honest, there are blogs everywhere, written by any and everyone...  While I myself enjoy reading and following a number of bloggists across all genres of content...
