It has been a VERY long time since I actually shared something on my blog. Mainly because I felt like I didn’t really have much to say…for nearly a month at a time.
Which is so weird, because, I often do feel the need to speak up and speak out on multiple things at a time. It is just, sometimes, I know that my blog can have the tendency of flipping from one topic and thing over to another.
Most of you know my areas of discussion…which would be kind of hard to cover on ONE blog don’t you think?
I mean….animation, ministry, social issues, personal note experiences ( like a good coffee or something minimal but fun ).
Ah, the magic of blogging, whether it is your own personal thing or whatever, and THAT my friend, is perhaps the mystery of the blog.
So, for those of you who have stuck with me for so long…WOW…THANK YOU.
Besides all that, I have, to be honest, been considering what to do with this blog. Should I really, really continue to use it and maintain it. And if I do, what should I turn this thing in to.
I have many ideas that are floating around in the ‘ole noggin and many of them are worth doing. Some of them, to be honest, I’m a little reluctant, because we’re talking about REALLY putting yourself out there. We’re talking putting yourself in the middle of a place where criticism is abound and transparency is scary.
The question…this question…”now what…”…is the very thing that I have been going back and forth with God on for a very, very long time now.
While I can count over and over some of the many great things that are going on I still fight to keep myself from getting discouraged over the unknown…the path that’s next…the journey that’s before me…the opportunity that may or may not actually exist.
As I have sought God on this, He’s also provided friends, and these friends have left me with one thing to consider: God Himself.
We keep looking for the “success” city limit sign, hoping and praying to make it to the next big thing, to make the next big dollar amount, to get the next awesome relationship or the next big thing.
But, what if “next” is “now” and you’re just moving too fast to acknowledge it?
Or, what if you’re so focused on “next” that you’re forgetting about the “now” you asked for the last time you considered the “next” a while back.
When I feel discouraged and weird about my path in life, I remember one of the most important things about God and His character:
- He Loves Me. He Sent His Son Jesus to die for me and you. He would NEVER do anything to me or for me that would be contrary to His Word and His loving character and His role as a Father…loving and disciplining.
I’ll keep you posted on what could come next and I’ll do my best to try to keep up the blog as things progress.
It would be one of those things, I believe, that is to important to me not to just give up.
The idea has crossed my mind and the consequences of doing so are not very good.
