Hi, let me introduce myself, I go by Carol Jacqueline. The blog, A Blooming Heart, came me to in the form of a dream. I asked God to lead me so that I may use my life as a vessel and blogging was imprinted on my heart. I continued to pray for guidance and one night in a dream… A Blooming Heart was born.

My hopes are that you find encouragement and a sense of solidarity engraved in each word and image that is presented through this blog. The truth is life can become increasingly difficult and at times frustrating, at times we question our identity, our value, our self-worth, our purpose, and in really dire moments, our very existence. I am here to share with you my life experiences from a traumatic childhood, bouts with depression, heart-breaks, failures, hardships, and how I continue to see God’s love guiding me through every season.

My prayer is that you receive encouragement in knowing that you are not alone. We are all in a struggle, that’s part of being human, but we all have hope in Jesus Christ. May each key that I press and each word that is posted come with the anointing of the Holy Spirit to help each reader in their current season. Whether that is a season of healing, waiting, hoping, dreaming, planning, no matter the season; may these words encourage you to keep believing and strengthen your heart to keep blooming. I pray that every heart is softened and every spirit is opened to the will of God and that in our pursuit of God we can make lifetime connections that will transform the world, one life at a time. Amen.

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing [through the experience of your faith] that by the power of the Holy Spirit you will abound in hope and overflow with confidence in His promises.” Romans 15:13 (AMP)
