Journal 5182010

I want to start writing on here journal entries – everyday thoughts, ramblings, questions, insight, etc.  I’ve sort of gotten away from doing it, which is sad because this is why I began blogging in the first place.  Instead, I’ve been focused on writing articles, reporting news, and other “ministry” things.  Which is all well and good; but I haven’t just let go and blog.  Know what I mean?

Anyways, I want to get a bit more personal about me: thoughts, yearnings, struggles, prayer requests, frustrations, highs, lows … you get the idea.  I want those I help (past, present and future) to know that I am on this journey to wholeness with them.  They are not alone, and neither am I.

So, look for more revealing posts coming up.  Maybe this will inspire other Christians to be revealing about their lives too.  One thing I have learned from this blogging experience, is that you never know who you will touch by what you have written/shared.  I’ve been reflecting on these words by Paul in 2 Corinthians 4, so I think they are an appropriate ending to this post:

For what we proclaim is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, with ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake.  For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us.  We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies.
