[Romans 15:13]

Today's topic : Tell us about your blog name. Where did it come from?

Happy Monday everyone!

I love today's prompt because what better way to discover a little bit more about others than by how they came up with their blog name.  A lot of thought goes into a blog name and typically, it is something very special for the writer.

Choosing the name of my blog was not an easy task.  I thought of at least 15 different names, much of which were already taken, leaving me with the task of brainstorming some more.  I even tried websites where they would sort of toggle names for you.

Considering my blog is lifestyle-based, I wanted something that would be general so a variety of my posts would fit right along.  I wanted a name that encompassed me, or a name that portrayed something I strive for daily.  My faith is a very large part of my life, and I am always looking for ways to deepen my relationship with Christ.  This led me to my heart's desire of solely relying on God and trusting in His commands.

Romans 15:13 || May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.

A Life Anchored in Hope is a sweet reminder that no matter what storm you may be going through, God will work it for good.  Life's adversities have a way of knocking us down to the ground, some more abruptly than others.  Where do some people discover God and His promises?  On that very ground that you are on, that feeling of such sadness, anger, and questioning why.  Our hope in Jesus can also be found in this same exact feeling of darkness.  He calls us out of the darkness and into the light, as our hearts begin to transform and our lives are redeemed.  Our life is anchored in hope.

I loved the idea of somehow incorporating my life being anchored in hope not only because of my love for Jesus, but because every time I post on my blog or edit my template, I am reminded that my life is in fact anchored in hope and it is in Jesus where my hope is found.  And I hope that you all are reminded of His sweet, unfailing love for YOU.
