Welcome to my blog! My diary, my safe space for my most vulnerable thoughts, my arm stretched out into the world.
My name is Katrina and I am a believer in Christ! I am a warrior, a beloved child of God, and a mess all at the same time!
While I am so many things, I am also NOT a lot of things.
I am not an expert, not an example of a perfect Christian, not what modern religion expects of a believer.
I am broken.
I am inadequate.
I am a sinner.
I am imperfect, angry at times, and a grudge-holder.
I doubt God, shy away from God’s direction, blame the world for my shortcomings and failures.
I, at times, pretend to be whole, happy, and Christ-like, even when I feel tiny, forgotten, and lost.
I am so flawed.
For 24 years of my life, I didn’t have faith or a relationship with God. Everyday I was sinking, paddling my arms under water, gasping for a breath until I reached utter exhaustion.
That’s where God saved me. He called out my name, so gently but surely, in my darkest time. I had no love left for myself, and in the quiet of my isolation and darkness, I was able to hear Him. He cradled me in his arms and set me on a path that forever changed my life. I cried for days because I couldn’t believe that I could be so loved, so understood. It changed me forever, and I still cry when I talk about it out loud.
Over the past year and a half, I have become whole with His love. I am free from all of the labels the world assigns me, good and bad. I am no longer defined by my failures or my successes. My cracks, holes, and crevices are completely filled in with His love, grace, and mercy. Everything that I am, everything that I’m not, is celebrated by God. Oh, to feel such love!
So I feel I have something to offer – my truth. A realistic, bare, raw truth. And that’s what I’ll do here. I have so many reasons for creating this blog, which I hope to piece together for you with each post. My hope is that you’ll feel welcome here, and even if you don’ t have a relationship with God, that you’ll feel less alone in your struggles.
Le’s do this!!!
