Welcome to a blog, my blog.
It feels weird to say that, but I’m going for it. Ever since my college days—so many moons ago—I’ve sensed that writing is part of who I am and therefore part of my worship to Christ (that little phrase took 15 seconds to type but 15 years to discover). I never really admitted it to myself, never said it out loud, and never made a discipline out of it…until now.
The world may not need another blog writer, but I need to write.
Part of me is scared beyond belief. Posting out in a world with so many amazing blogs feels like putting a color-by-number painting next to a Monet, a Play-doh head with spaghetti hair next to the David, N’ Sync lyrics next to Ethan Frome.
But I’m offering it as a sacrifice of praise to my Savior, the one who gave His everything so that my life has the freedom to be beautiful, to be real, to be me.
“I have come home at last! This is my real country! I belong here. This is the land I have been looking for all my life, though I never knew it till now…Come further up, come further in!” ~ The Last Battle by C.S. Lewis
Lewis was discussing heaven, but my spirit hears the compelling call to today “come further up, come further in.” It’s fleeting glimpses of a deeper life. It’s the invitation to see beyond the thick layers of superficial stuff of life–the stuff that provides distraction rather than joy–and abide in spiritual freedom. This blog is my journey toward spiritual freedom through the discipline of writing.
Thank you for reading, friends. I’d love for you to join me. Comment, share, add. My hope is that you would be inspired or reminded to do the things He’s created you for, the things that make you…you.
