The Simplicity of My Testimony

The Simplicity (a lack of complexity, complication, embellishment, or difficulty) of My (belonging or relating to…me!) Testimony (firsthand authentication of a fact; a public profession of Christian faith or religious experience; an open acknowledgment).

I first heard the words, the Simplicity of My Testimony, several years ago during a sermon my pastor preached. It was so profound by its own right, and immediately caught my attention. I wrote it down, and have had it in my spirit since that day. I believe it’s been at least four years now.

I’ve been entertaining the thought of creating a blog for quite some time, but like many people, I had some very valid questions rolling around in my mind: “What would I call the blog? Why do I want to keep one? Would anyone read it? And what would I write about, anyway?” That said, the name came back to the forefront of my mind, and after opening and closing Blogger many MANY times getting information, inching ever closer to jumping in with both feet, I finally decided to go for it. Last night, after I had finished setting up the blog account, I sat in the dimly lit living room, looked around, grinned and said, “Okay, Lord…now what?” And I trust He’ll give me something to write about.
