Introduction

Well, I don’t really know why I decided to post a public blog. I have a private one – that only a few people read and that isn’t updated with any specific frequency. So in the interest of self promotion (?) and general blog-ness, I decided to create one that all the world can see. As far as a goal of this website, I don’t really have one. I figure that I can just update whatever I want whenever I want.

In my life right now, I’m being taught so many painful lessons about the sovereignty and faithfulness of the Lord. I wish that it was easier to trust Him. Currently, He is leading me thorough some very emotional challenges that make me feel so weary! But if God is who He claims to be, and I know that He is, I have full confidence in his  ability to draw me through this and to mold me. I love basking in the knowledge that my Savior is a good God and a loving father. But honestly, it saddens me to realize that I don’t trust this perfect Father or submit to his plans easily. I always learn things the hard way, so it seems. I read the book “Trusting God” by Jerry Bridges last semester and was really challenged at how much I lack basic trust. I was actually considering re-reading it after my semester is over. It’s one of those things that I always seem to come back to. I’m just sooo thankful that the Lord is who he claims to be, and that he imparts mercy to my wicked and oblivious heart.
Well, that seems to be enough for an introduction. Keep your eyes peeled for a new post sometime in the near future!

One thought on “Introduction

  1. >Nice intro. I really like Jerry Bridges too, even though I’ve only actually read one of his books in it’s entirety… “Growing Your Faith.” Highly recommended. He has a way of communicating some rather deep and profound spiritual ideas in simple ways that I really like… good stuff. Well I’ll check your blog occasionally to see when you post anything, looks like a solid start for now! Like the music… that’s a nice touch. Kinda freaked me out at first because my speakers were turned up way too loud when it kicked up, haha.
