Pressing Toward the Goal
12 Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. 13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, 14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
15 Therefore let us, as many as are mature, have this mind; and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal even this to you. 16 Nevertheless, to the degree that we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule,[b] let us be of the same mind.
In beginning of this year ,God laid it on my heart to launch the Christians in College Blog. Not knowing where I was going to get the content and how I was going to have time to create content, I managed to take a leap of faith and follow His instructions. What started off as a one-week post, soon flourished into a day-to-day post and my audience began to grow.
Four months into the year after being offered a summer editorial internship with the Atlanta Business Chronicle, I decided to take a break from writing for my blog. I then began to focus all of my attention on my editorial position. Nevertheless during the internship, the entire staff became my second home and continuously encouraged me to go after my ambitions and goals.
After saying my final goodbyes to the company once my internship was over, I found myself at square one with the blog. I knew for sure God wanted me launch it but I also knew He wanted it be more than just a blog.
Through deep prayer, mediation and consulting conversations with my mentors, God soon revealed to me that my blog would turn into a magazine and it’s title would be Refresh.
Refresh Magazine is an online Christian-based publication for adults age 18-35. Our goal is to win souls that have fallen away from Christ, inform individuals who have never heard of the Gospel and just as the Lord declared in Jeremiah 31:25 “refresh the weary and satisfy the faint.” We seek to empower people with words of wisdom and enlighten those who are unaware of the Gospel Jesus Christ through the Bible, testimonials and entertainment.
My management team and I have been working diligently in order to launch the magazine’s website on January 1, 2017. With that beginning the case, I have decided to bring down my daily post to only three post a week. Those days will be on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
During this process I plan to keep you all abreast on what’s going on with the website and what you all can look forward to before it is launched. If you would like to become apart of this phenomenal writing sensation, please do not hesitate to contact me and find out more!
God Bless You All!!
