Hello! So happy you made it here.
I kept thinking..what in the world am I going to write my first post about? Then it dawned on me…the WHY. Isn’t that the first question we all ask anyways? As a little kid my siblings would make fun of me for constantly being the one asking “but why?” after every sentence.
We all want to know why; Why we do what we do and why other people do what they do. It’s in our being.
Well it’s because it is something that I’m passionate about. I’m passionate about helping people. Whether that’s helping them physically or emotionally or even just hold their hand! If I went through something extremely painful but saw that I could help someone because of it, then every last bit was worth it.
I feel like I have things to share, things that God has placed on my heart, things that could be helpful to others, things that no one ever told me about life that I had to figure out for myself.
I’m going to be honest, whenever I first thought about doing this blog, the first word Satan put in my head was “inadequate.” “YOU, Brighton, are inadequate to do this. What in the world do you have to share? You have nothing to offer that could help anyone.” I’m serious, these were the lies that Satan was constantly putting in my head, the more and more I progressed towards this blog. But God was telling me something else…He was telling me that YOU, Brighton, are more than adequate. YOU are enough and YOU have something to share. And that is because that something is Jesus. Jesus has radically changed my life, and the older I get it seems the more He’s doing it. So I owe it all to him to be radical and share with other people what He has done for me and what He will do for them.
As I am typing this, I’m praying for God to speak through me by taking my typing fingers. Even if I can only help or inspire ONE person then that is plenty for me, because one person can make a huge impact on millions. And isn’t that why we are alive? To share the love of Jesus radically? I believe so!
I hope this blog causes you to also be passionate because when people are passionate that’s when greatness happens and lives are changed.
I also hope you can get to know me more on a personal level if you don’t already. So don’t worry, (not that you were) I will be sharing about more day-to-day things that I’ve got going on as well. But overall, I’m hoping that reading this can be a little light for you in this crazy fallen world that we live in.
That’s my why.
