As I work on this blog, I am so aware of the multitude of bad reasons for having one!
When you start writing down your thoughts in a public forum, its easy for it to become a way of getting attention or praise. As I share my thoughts on Christian life, and the Bible, it will be easy to preach at others while remaining unchanged.
Yet I have so many conversations with other Christians that persuade me that there is a need for Christians to speak frankly, to encourage each other in godliness, to wrestle together with what this might look like day to day, and to do this with a good grasp of scripture.
We are bombarded with the wisdom of the world, and much as I love my Pinterest account, I think that we need to be actively seeking out things that will feed our souls too! Strengthening us to be distinctively and attractively Christian.
It often takes me a while to process what I’m thinking about, and I hope that blogging will continue to be a fruitful way of processing what I’m reading, writing , and thinking about – to the glory of God.
I always benefit from hearing from you, so keep sharing and commenting, and thank you for reading!
