This Isn't About Me

This Isn't About Me

Welcome to Devy Diaries,

My little corner of Swanson Pon A Time. This is a space for me to share my experiences, and give you updates on what’s going down as we go on our life long adventure.

To be honest, doing this blog is probably one of the MOST challenging/scary things I have ever done for a few reasons:

1.     I am not the most technology savvy (What kind of millennial am I right?)

2.     Putting myself out there for the world to see is SCARY!!!! (I spell words wrong WITH spell check and what if people don’t enjoy what I write?)

3.     The fear of failing (What happens if no one reads our blog and it’s a total disaster what then?)

And these scary thoughts have kept me from writing this blog for quite some time, I couldn’t shake the fears, they seemed to overwhelm me from even trying.

So what happened? How’d make the switch actually launch this out into cyber space where all you lovely people are reading this today? I was reminded of the truth:


 Sure, my name might be on the title and sure, I am the one going on this lifelong mission. But I am not writing this blog nor going on this mission for my own personal gain. But for God’s Glory! This has and will always be for and about JESUS! And when I remember that this isn’t my journey, but God’s, all of the pressures come down, because He will do whatever it is He wants to do with this blog and ultimately with this journey. If that is 800 people reading it, or just one (Hey Mama!!), that’s not for me to worry about. All He is asking of me is to do my part. WRITE, oh and to go.  So here I am writing and leaving, not gonna lie, still a little afraid, but not going to let this fear hold back God’s plan!!

“Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.” – Galatians 1:10

Ah that felt good to get that off my chest! Lol

Much Love,
