This blog has been sitting in the corner of my life for quite a while now, collecting dust while I work on other things. I never liked the thought of being a blogger, but I do like to write - so I guess the two intersect.
Joyfully Yoked has not sat quietly in the corner, however. God has continued to force it into my mind and heart and I kept my finger on that red launch button for a while, afraid I don't have enough time. Or I'm not a blogger. Or no one will read it.
God enters into those types of doubts and by His very presence they move away, like a ship displacing water. In Matthew 6:34 Jesus tells us not to be anxious for tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. That means today has a certain value, an immediacy. We live life in increments of now and today is now. Now is a gift and it's all we have.
So here we go, my friends. This is post one of _____ ? I'll post as often as possible and I hope you'll provide feedback on how this site can better serve you.
