Admittedly some weeks writing something to Blog about is difficult. I would like to say that there is always inspiration, the Holy Spirit has lit me up with the fire of awesome faith, but truth is, it is often a struggle. Especially after writing for four years.
On the other side of the coin, writing is therapeutic and it allows one to bare their heart and soul in words of joy, sorrow or true inspiration. It is life lived through pen and paper, or in modern terminology, riding on an icloud. It is a privilege and honor to be able to communicate with you this way and though I am not with you often, I am with you in these words and in spirit.
So we could say that doing this is Blog-if-ication. If I can come to you this way it is a verification of our relationships from now and in the past, it is newness, it is memories, and it is quite similar to scripture in that it is written transcript of what we think, feel and experience as it relates to God. Each week a new story is unfolding, a new event has captured our attention and it is no longer an if because it is real life drama.
That is why I look at the Bible as putting you and I in the parable or passage, making it resound within our hearts and carving a new notch of progress toward understanding each time we write about how the Lord worked with us to accomplish great things or great changes.
Not only is it an honor to come to you, but it is an honor to come to you on behalf of Him! No matter how I feel, what has happened that day, I try to always write a message that reflects His words in a real and positive light. So to close out this week...........
God is more than able to handle any problem you have, He is far more than adequate to point you in the right direction, He is beyond comprehension to take your depression and anxiety and turn it into joy and peace, He is totally equipped to bring you the finances you need to meet your needs, and He is impressively strong to build your character and courage.
Let Him have his way with you, and you will find the way to Him! That's not a story I need to write about, He already wrote it.
