Happy new 2016 year! You may ask- “why the blog, Olesya? Everyone has a blog these days.” Well, looking at my life, and especially this past year, I realized that I write a lot. And not just boring papers for classes, but in a journal as well. And I have so much to write about. I can’t stay silent. Sometimes it gets a little difficult, as some of you may relate, to understand and navigate through the enormous amount of thoughts that go on inside your head. I have found that writing or talking about everything, helps.
I want to share my life with all of you. I want to share my blessings and how God is working in me, but also my struggles and failures. Many of my blog posts will probably be geared toward females, as I am writing this from a female perspective but nonetheless, I hope people find this blog an encouragement in their walk with Jesus.
I don’t know how “successful” this blog will be, or how many people will view it. I prayed to start a blog for a little more than a year, and God has finally opened the door for me. I will put all my trust in Him and He will use it according to His plan.
My title consists of some of my favorite things. Jesus, people, travel, and coffee. These won’t be the only things I write about but they do show a small glimpse of who I am. I have many things to share about my faith, the people that I have in my life and also the many adventures that I’ve had so far and will be having. I pray that if at least one person is encouraged by my blog, my mission will be accomplished.
Before you finish reading, I would like to leave you with one of my favorite quotes by Christine Caine:
“Allow God to continually soften your heart so that it beats for what his heart beats for – people.”
