Daily Delight

Saturday, August 20, 2016


I would like to preface today's devotional by saying that I have so enjoyed the last three months, getting to share my heart each week, welcoming readers the best way I know how. But I’ve also struggled the last three months to feel worthy of this position. What could I possibly contribute if I have so little figured out? How could I help others if my spiritual life is often times shaky? Who would want to listen to me?

But I’ve found a certain grace here, with Daughter of Delight. The things I am writing are the things I myself need to hear. So I read every single comment, I rejoice over every like. And I feel a little less alone. I am fighting an uphill battle of unworthiness with just a pen in hand. But there are so many of you behind me with your kind words and gentle thoughts, many who are fighting the same battle. This community, thousands of strangers who meet each day over the Internet, is just another good thing I have stumbled into. We are from every corner of the earth and represent every possible struggle and success. These hearts that come together here are good. And I, in my imperfect, messy state, hope that this is what church can look like for us. I hope the church is loving, forgiving, kind people who seek this every day and who build each other up instead of ripping each other down. Thank you for giving me a taste of that. I hope in every aspect of life we can push past unworthiness and live in the light of grace, redeemed. Thank you for graciously accepting my words and giving me more to ponder. Thank you for showing the love of Christ in such a way that is so necessary. I am beyond grateful to be here with you. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching. -Hebrews 10:24-25
