Heiress of His Promise

Rage, Rage

Have you ever had that time when you felt that your heart has been stagnant almost inactive? I know I have. It is unlike those days that I feel on fire for the Word, on fire to inspire and to encourage. It feels like just passing by. Like I’m living on the bare minimum, just passing through the moment.

And somehow, these words resounded to me:

“Rage, rage against the dying of the light.”

These words are from a poem by Dylan Thomas. Analysts say it’s a poem about fighting deathβ€”the physical kind, about not allowing yourself to passively wait for β€œthat good night”, about fighting for life as much as you can.

One Identity

Earlier this year I created this blog as a separate place where I can write about things I do in my life. I thought I should separate it from the blog where I wrote about my faith. I reasoned that I wanted my previous blog to just be about faith.

This week I read one of Arianne Serafico’s posts (actually she has a free online course on this topic) where she talked about previously having a separate Instagram account for her business/creative pursuits and from her personal Instagram account. She talked about how she didn’t want to put it all in her personal account for fear of making it too sales-y or just weird and awkward. In a way, I realised that maybe I made separate blogs also because I didn’t want people who read my blog posts to see my posts about faith. I felt like I didn’t want people to think I was too “religious” or “church-y”.

But, it doesn’t feel right to have a split identity. I shouldn’t be creating a schism on what I do on a daily basis from the very thing that influences my motives and decisions: my faith. So now, I’m placing them all in one place. Here.

Previously, I owned the domain names unprecedentlife(dot)wordpress(dot)com and heiressofapromise(dot)wordpress(dot)com.

Now, welcome to unprecedentgrace.wordpress.com where I strive to reconcile both parts of my identity into one. Cheers to being whole!
