Faith, Hope and Encouragement, Friendship

I Finally Did It!!

Welcome to Pursuing His Promises Blog! It’s launch day!!

I want to begin this by saying a huge thank you to everyone who has prayed, encouraged and challenged me along the way. I want to especially honor and thank a very special friend who was instrumental in this process, Brandy Butler, my KFP. Prior to her moving to heaven she was very vocal about me getting this launched. I know she is in heaven giggling and saying, “well, it’s about time!” I love you Brandy and you are forever in my heart!

About 3 years ago I felt a prompting by the Lord to start a blog. I know, I know…you are probably asking yourself why it took me so long to get this going. Unfortunately, I allowed life and a lot of excuses to get in the way of getting it done. My perfectionist, melancholy personality sure did not help much either. I researched a lot about blog writing, I talked to a couple of friends that had experience writing blogs and also looked at tons of different blog examples to get a general idea of the flow of things. In April of 2020 I even stepped out and purchased my domain and set up my account through WordPress and yet here we are having the blog launch in June of 2021. I am so glad the Lord has been patient with me!

Recently, a close friend of mine reminded me that many times the Lord gives us a “now” word so it is more important to get the word out there even if everything else is not “just perfect”. There is a wealth of knowledge in that statement. I am thankful to be surrounded by godly friends who not only encourage me but challenge me to be the best version of myself and who God wants me to be. I am also constantly reminding myself that delayed obedience is disobedience and I do not want to be disobedient to the Lord. Many times we do not know who or what is on the other side of our obedience.

As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend. Proverbs 27:17

I pray that you have a friend in your life that is that “iron” for you. If not, we can sure pray for you one!

Enjoy these pictures of my sweet friend Brandy AKA HolyGhost Rider…someone full of life and love for Jesus! And since I am dedicating the launch of this blog to her, I will close with a popular phrase she coined…

Jesus is Lit! and You’re the Light!

God Bless!


My forever friend, Brandy, AKA my KFP
