I’ve recently felt the desire to write. I’ve taken a break. I’ve taken a long break. My site says it’s been 7 months. That is by far the longest I’ve let this blog sit here with nothing new.
Why you might ask?
Maybe I’ve been busy, not sure. Well really, I know why, but I’m not ready to share that with you just yet but it’s getting closer.
I really wanted to write and post something because I do enjoy it and it’s something that gives me a sense of accomplishment. But then again, it’s not about that. After all, I shoveled snow today and that provided plenty of “accomplishment”.
I’m thankful to a friend that I’ve followed his blogging streak. I saw him this past weekend and we had a nice chat about it so I’m partially getting started because Pat motivated me. Thanks, buddy, I appreciate it.
I write exclusively or maybe mostly, almost always, or always from a Christian perspective.
After-all… I’m a Christian and thankful to be a Christian. So, I don’t do it to feel better about myself, to be therapeutic, but it is all those things. I do it for the glory of Christ. I do it because I desire to honor Him in my life. And that brings me to my point.
Life is short. We are all created for a purpose. That single purpose is to glorify our Creator.
All the nations you have made shall come and worship before you, O LORD, and shall glorify your name. Psalm 86:9
How simple is this reality yet so distant for us to fully grasp in this dog eat dog world we live in. Maybe it’s time to slow down and just contemplate the purpose for which you were created. You are a worshiper. You were made to worship. But worship outside of the One True God is called idolatry.
Turn your attention and your affections to the LORD. He will never disappoint.
And so that is what I’ve decided to do here for a season. Write some short devotional material in a conversational sort of a way. I hope you like it.
