Re:Vision

I've recently been challenged to think about what I want to do with this web log. When it first started, I was just messing around and there was no clear purpose. A friend asked himself a worthy question when he started his own blog - "What's the point?" He says,
    So the question I ask myself before I embark into the world of web logs is, "Why? With all the wonderful, culture-engaging commentaries out there already, why add more verbiage to the deluge of the internet? Why try to contend with such heavy hitters when you are trying to keep your head above water in right thinking?" Well, I want to add my voice because I think that the worst thing I can do is remain quiet and let this wave go by without attempting to put my hand to the clay and mold what thoughts are formed.
It is with similar sentiment that I feel I should put my own hand to this clay. I don't purpose to change the entire world with anything I write here (far better minds than mine are already at work on that, I'm sure) - but maybe I'll be used to impact yours, if only in a small way.

And so what I will purpose to do in this forum is to help equip and encourage you as you go about your pilgrimage by sharing thoughts and musings - from the theological to the mundane - from my own journey with Christ in hopes that it will take you a step further in yours. Perhaps you would provide insight from your own walk that would do the same for me. Visit and comment as often as you like, and I will try to post often and consistantly. I'll look forward to seeing where the Lord takes us in all of this.

The LORD will fulfill His purpose for me; Your love, O LORD, endures forever— do not abandon the works of Your hands. -Psalm 138:8

Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the LORD's purpose that prevails. -Proverbs 19:21

I will change the world and so will you...I recently came across the same issue...

you will see here, this is a platform to change the world...maybe one day i will do battle with the world...and change their avowal on their intra neoteric veiws on biblical "hot potatoes".

But, seriously...this is a launching pad. Just a launching pad friend.

one more thing...I have decided to go to war with the post-modernist...as if my previous comment didn't explain so clearly.

I started a blog somewhat recently too. Got as far as three posts before I realized that I simply don't have the time to commit to it. I appreciate the format though and I think that it is a great way to just say the important things that we want to say without having to steer a conversation that way. I wonder though how many people really want to hear each other's deep thoughts, but we simply get stuck talking about the surface things. Or perhaps people are like me and a conversation reflective of the thoughts in a single paragraph would take 15 minutes to say and would involve lots of pauses and saying "hold on... what I meant to say way". I appear most intelligent when people don't realize how long it takes me to sound intelligent.

Thanks for letting me know about the blog, brother...

That sounds like an excellent plan to me. By leaving it in His hands it is bound to work out.

I'll be back!

Just keep it personal...have it be from your heart...not just your head. Life flow comes from this...

Press On... =)
