In the past few months, I’ve transitioned to this new blog. It’s kind of funny that I had just celebrated my 200th post on my old blog back in March and here I am today, celebrating my 50th post on the new blog. I guess I’ve been busy. It took me 4 years to get to 200 posts on the old blog and just a little over 2 months to get to 50 posts here.
I am constantly humbled to think that God can use me and the words that he’s given to me. The first time that my wife suggested I start a blog, I kind of laughed. What did I know? Did anyone really care about what I thought? Did I have enough to say? Was there any amount of wisdom swirling around in my head?
Turns out, there are some people who are encouraged and inspired by some of what I write. For that, I am grateful. Thank you for taking time out of your busy day to check in here and read a little bit about what God is doing and has done in my life.
I am but one person, but I know a lot of other people. I have never been satisfied to simply be without having some kind of an impact. Part of my frustration with my previous profession was the fact that I just didn’t feel like I was making a difference. While there are still days that I wonder whether or not I am making a difference, what I do now as a pastor just feels more fulfilling to me.
Every day is an adventure and I am glad to share it with whoever decides to peak in on my life through this blog. I hope that I can continue to be a light in the midst of darkness. I hope that people will see that God takes broken vessels and makes something beautiful out of them. I hope that in the midst of the storms of life, people will realize that they are not alone, that there are others who have been there, and that we have a God who, through Jesus Christ, has experienced the hardships and difficulties that we face every day.
Thanks for reading. May God continue to bless you richly.
