H is for Hidden
While I am attempting to keep the appearance and content of this blog "light-Hearted & lovely," there are just some things about life that are Hard. Some where on this life journey, I also picked up the idea that I should try and Hide my short-comings and weaknesses, in order to maintain a strong exterior. So revealing my messy interior does not come easily.
However, for several years now, I have held the conviction (if not always the courage) that bringing Hidden thoughts, fears, failings, hurts etc... in to the light is the only way to gain Healing and also, Hopefully, encourage and bless others experiencing similar difficulties.
So now, I must reveal to you that I possess another Hidden blog. It has no link on this blogsite, nor does its name appear on my profile. I am not ashamed of it. In fact, it is deeply personal to and reflective of me. I just felt like doing something different with this fresh, new blog. To understand my "secret" blog, you will need to know a little bit about me.....
I trust there is a real and loving God who cares intimately for me and has a unique purpose in and for my life. Over the past year, I kept a blog of my Heart questions, ponderings, and struggles as I have walked through a season of depression. I do not claim to hold all, or any, of the answers related to depression... the whys, the causes, the chemistry, the convictions. I only know what it has been like for me and what I have learned. Others may have a completely different experience and understanding. We are none of us alike. So while we may share common pain, confusion, apathy, or numbness; there are no "cookie cutter solutions" or "pat answers."
The name of my unseen blog is Hidden Darkness. If you are curious, you are welcome to click the link and wander around. (The link places you at the beginning.)
"I will give you the treasures of darkness, riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the LORD..." Isaiah 45:3 (The Bible)
I can't believe that when I initially published this post, I totally left out the H word Hope. I have hung my heart on this word many a time.
