Meet Taylar, GOGH Newest Writer!

Today is my first blog post but you will be hearing a lot more from me in the weeks to come!

I thought I should take a second to introduce myself before getting started! My name is Taylar Reitz. I am 19 years old... almost! Tiffany is my sister. We are both very excited to be doing this blog together. The other day I felt led to start guest posting on Girls of God's Heart but my sister informed me I was more than welcome to blog on a regular basis, so I definitely felt God pushing me forward to do that.

I really enjoy free writing. My spirit just opens up and I can say exactly what is on my heart. I journal on a pretty much daily basis. I highly recommend doing so too. Whether you write in a time of need or time of praise you can look back and see what was going on in your life, how it has affected your life and how you've grown from it. I use my journalism as a form of worship, the more I journal the closer I feel to God because I am opening up myself to Him and His ways.

Psalm 101:1 I will sing of your love and justice to you, Lord, I will sing praise.

If you are feeling the need to get something off your chest, journal about it. God already know what you have to say and what has been happening in your life but it is soothing and healing to not only pray to Him but write to Him also.

Lately my entries are me trying to be optimistic and thankful when times are tough. I write things like, "Caleb (my boyfriend of almost two years) just left for college again, but I am thankful we can still communicate and that we had an amazing summer growing closer together. That we will see each other soon and God will continue revealing His plans for us" Also, "My dad lost his job Friday. We have to live off my moms pay check for now but there is so much to be thankful for! God decided to close that door to his old job and will open another for a new one. Maybe it will be something he enjoys more. I am thankful I'm still living at home and not going to college like the rest of my friends so that I can work and help out in the ways God wants me to."

God has a big plan for each of us. Some of it may not seem great at the time but be thankful for every situation. I have learned through my optimistic journalism He is always there, He is never leaving and He loves me unconditionally. He loves you too! So whether you write to Him on a regular basis or never have, take a moment today to give Him what is truly on your mind and thank Him for the good and the bad. He is helping us to grow into mature women of Christ. 

We are weak but he is strong.
