feeling a little lost...

So, you may have noticed that my last few posts have been nothing special. Alot of surface, blah blah if you ask me. In the future, if you see that from me, you should know it's time to pray. My desire for this blog is to help others. To be accountable to what I have said I would do. Posts about Great Wolf Lodge and Chocolate Peanut Butter ice cream do nothing. I have wondered a few times, if more people would read, follow, write comments if I write about something less sensitive. If I fill my blog with subjects that don't make people think - will they find it more enjoyable to read?

Unfortunately, I can't do that. It's not real to me. I know that there are times when people skip my blog because they don't feel like dealing with themselves. When they purposefully don't click on mine because they are afraid that I might say something that is real to them and might make them aware they are hurting. Here's the thing - I will NEVER be like that. I say what is on my mind and heart ALL THE TIME. Maybe that's not always good - but it is who I am. Dan has always said that when he reads my blogs, he can hear me saying the words I have written. That folks, is the reality of Jetta.

I believe that when your heart is ready to receive - you will click on my blog. I want readers. I want lots of readers - but only when they are ready. It took me a long time to get ready to share. I know that what I have to say matters to SOMEONE. Maybe it's just me that it matters to. Not really sure - and I can't really care.

The last few posts have covered up the fact that I was hurting and struggling. It was big, and I am still formulating. It will be written about - in God's timing because it is relevant. God is good, His mercy endures forever. AMEN!


  1. Well said Jetta! I love your blog and I'm so thankful for your words. I did the cleanse because of that post! I've just scratched the surface on my issues and I'm ready. It may not be easy or pretty but it needs to be done. Thanks for starting the spark in me.

    I pray that you always tell your truth! Also, I'm serious about Brave Girl Camp in October if you are thinking of it :)

    I've been working on an email to you go over my 21 days and will get it out shortly.


  2. Jetta,
    I so completely understand what you are saying. My own blog is written straight from my heart and because no one comments or follows, I never know if I am encouraging others or just writing to "hear myself speak".

    You are an encouragement to me because I have battled with weight issues my entire life. I have health issues that stem from that.

    Keep writing...keep encouraging...keep being the example you are. And ONE DAY, I'll follow.

    Bless you!!!

  3. Amen Jetta! By the way- I have lost 20 pounds- when I feel myself slipping, I always read your blog (again and again and again. :)

  4. I think that is great about you!!!!

  5. Jetta, I don't see anything wrong with putting in a "fluffy" post now and then, it makes you real. It also give us a glimpse of the person you are in your every day life. But I definitely like to read about your journey most of all. You are strong and when you are weak, He is strong!

    You are clothed in STRENGTH & DIGNITY!

  6. just found your blog...because somehow you found me...
    i'm looking forward to spending more time here!
    and don't change it for more readers...
    how you write, what you are writing about... it's all very real and wonderful

  7. Jetta, I also just found your blog and find it very inspiring! I will be checking back regularly to see what God has in store for your journey.
