Hi! I'm Brittany and I'm so glad you're here!

I've wanted to start this blog for a long time but didn't really know where to start. I've discovered that if you don't start...well, nothing happens.
Hey friends! My name is Brittany Inman and I'm so glad you're here! I wanted to find a place where I could jot down my thoughts, what I feel the Lord is speaking to me and questions I may be dealing with...so, I find myself here...a blog.
There is a huge part of me that feels like this is self-indulgence or self-conceit. I have a history that includes plenty of that. To be open and vulnerable with you, well, it just creeps me out now. The last thing this blog is supposed to do is make you think or believe that I'm anything other than an ordinary person. I am, however, just like you, we are made extraordinary by the power of Jesus. You know, the pendulum can swing from one extreme to the other. Overwhelming self-indulgence and self conceit are symptoms of pride, while overwhelming humility for the sake of people believing you are humble, well, that's pride too. It's a fine line and one only the Holy Spirit can help us walk. I believe it's also true that too much discounting oneself can actually be an insult to our incredible God.
"...we are made extraordinary by the power of Jesus."
He made you and me. When we talk bad about ourselves, we are talking bad about Him. We are made in HIS image. That makes you extraordinary!
I've always been captivated by the vastness of God. To think there is a being that has always been and will always be, who created with the WORD from His mouth the very ground we stand on and the body that contains our immortal soul, well it's captivating. Even if you have every scientific explanation the most learned scholar could come up with I still go back to the very basic and beginning question of "Why?". I don't pretend to know the answers or even the right scientific questions to ask but what I do know is that non of them outside of the Bible explain the why. It doesn't matter how you explain the creation of the world, let's just say the "Big Bang Theory" for example. It still doesn't answer the "why". Why did it happen? I'm not asking them how it happened, I'm asking why? It takes more faith to believe it "just did" than it does to believe that God created it.
So, here I sit pondering the incredible vastness of God. Awed at Him. Praying you are captivated by the God who sees you as much as I am.
