Hello there, you lovely person, and thank you for coming by; I'd like to get you a cup of of Earl Gray tea (my favourite), but you'll have to make it for yourself, or--hopefully--find my thoughts and words as satisfying.
I don't know how you came here, though I'm certainly happy to see you; but I do know why this blog exists for you to read at all, and here's why:
I want to grow in my thoughts and in my writing.
I want to grow in my relationship with God--thinking through, understanding Him better as well as His doings in my life.
I want to grow thicker skin...not really. Well, yes in a way. Exposing your thoughts like this is really exposing your heart to both the pats and the bruises which help it to grow. And that has to do with my desire to grow myself; so it's more or less the same as the above, I suppose. Also--inspired by the Rebelution!--I have a list of Hard Things which I'm working on...and this blog is one of them.
I'm not sure how many more times I'll see you, but I do hope this collection of thoughts will help you in your journey upwards--towards obeying and glorifying God--as it marks mine.
And so, here goes....
Our goals should drive us upwards, towards obeying and glorifying God, rather than forward.
