Stardust Diaries #1

Stardust Diaries #1

I feel awful! I know, I knowwww, this post should have been live on Monday. Eek. If you follow me on Insta you know there were some *cough* tech difficulties. But, anyway, here it is! 🙂

”Dreams. A word we writers and readers use very frequently. One of the many things I’m learning and trying to be better at is surrendering my dreams to God. Yeah, I know, easier said than done. But it is on this process that I have learned that no dream is too big, wild, or silly. The ability to dream is the most beautiful and precious gift God could give us. As I write this, I wonder who will read this in say three, five, ten years? Even thinking about that is a dream. I have many dreams…big dreams, silly dreams, weird dreams, lovely dreams… I dream of becoming an author and being able to publish books that will stir love and change in young people lives. I dream of becoming a Proverbs 31 woman, perfect in God’s eyes. I dream of having a heart so big and full of love for everyone around me. I dream of others loving me not for who I’m but what He, God, has done in me. But above all, I dream of serving Him all the days of my life and loving others as He loves me. Those are my dreams, and in a way, my prayers. God is such a loving and caring father who loves it when you share your dreams with Him. Nothing is too small or too big for Him, and I can guarantee you, there is no better feeling than having a loving father take care of your dreams.”

Much love and blessings,

Breny

I’m sitting here in front of my laptop thinking of a way to start this…

HI! *grins* well, I know this may sound cheesy, but welcome to my new weekly installment… the Stardust Diaries! To be honest, I didn’t know I was going to be doing this until yesterday.

If you follow me on Instagram (@rubies_chrsitianbookreviews) you may have seen me post in my stories a couple of times about my ”prayer journal”. The short story is that I use my journal to pray (hehe). I’m a writer, and as you may know, writers express themselves better on paper. It was after posting a pic of my payer journal yesterday that I realized, why don’t I share snippets of them with everyone? Maybe it will help someone? I don’t know. There’s a lot of things God has been talking to me about writing, reading, and just life, and I would love to share it with you.

‘We don’t have to be like anyone else, we just have to be our best self.”

Think of this as mini weekly devos from of a bookish nerdy-writer sprinkled with book love and writing inspiration. As teens and young adults, I feel the world is trying to drown us in a lot of self-doubt and comparison, and it is slowly killing our joy and happiness, sometimes, without us even noticing. That’s exactly what God showed me yesterday. How terrible and hard I was being with myself. How I judged things about myself that were part of who I was and how God had created me. We don’t have to be like anyone else, we just have to be our best self. Easier said than done, right? And believe me, it’s hard. When the world is trying to sell you an image of what beauty, love, and life should be, its so hard to keep your eyes fixed on God, I know. I pray that the Stardust Diaries will be of some inspiration and reminder to you (and me) of God’s amazing grace and love.

With all the love in my heart,

Breny
