I’ve actually been thinking about starting a blog for a long time. Actually did start one a couple of years ago, but I didn’t keep up with it. I wish now that I had. Somany things have happened that I wish I could remember with more detail. Maybe, if I’d been blogging (since I can’t seem to make myself actually keep a journal with any kind of regularity), I’d have little memory triggers out there in old posts. Maybe I would have kept myself encouraged a little better. I don’t know, really.
It’s probably actually a bad time to start a blog – school just started back up, and it looks like my classes are going to be hard. Plus studying for boards, teaching, trying to find another job – when am I going to be able to fit this all in? But also, just maybe, this is something that will keep me going. I find that it is so much easier to keep myself happy and encouraged in my faith when I am trying to encourage others. And there are so many thoughts I have about how to deal with different struggles. If I don’t speak, though, who will hear me? Thus, the blog.
In everything I do, I want to glorify God. So, this blog will likely contain many different things – recipes, artsy stuff, good ideas, and the like. But overall, it’s going to be about Jesus. About how to have a closer walk with Him. How to overcome obstacles. How to live a life dedicated, sold out, promised to Jesus.
