Like many people who get the bright idea to start a blog, I sat here pondering this morning on what to write as my first post.
As I’m sure not an ‘author’ nor am I very prolific with words, I began to seriously question WHY exactly did I want to do this in the first place!
What finally dawned on me was it doesn’t matter if talent is lacking in the writing department, or if no one ever reads one word ever placed on this page–
Its done for God’s Glory alone… “Sola Dei Gloria”
IF by chance or Divine intervention, one were to come across this blog, what they will find are the pondering’s of one ‘on the path’ and in still in the race.
And one who understands the difficulties which most Christians today, are having in sorting through the obvious apostasy which, being fore-told, has ‘arrived’…and of the difficulty of the last leg of this spiritual journey we are on.
Many of us are growing weary; Its understandable in todays increasing spiritual darkness, to grow tired of the battles, as we struggle to hold tightly to Jesus. (No worry though…for He has us firmly in His Hands)
Still others have been led kicking and screaming into the wilderness or back-side of the Desert. If like myself, you’ve learned to live off the daily Manna alone, not worrying about tomorrow’s supply, but are content only with today’s.
I’d like to say my own personal desert or wilderness excursion has been short and sweet…sorry can’t say that. Many day’s still, I question if any fruit at all is being produced through this slow tedious trek; Or if I’ve ‘died enough’ and if Jesus is being formed in me? Those day’s are bad…I admit it.
But what I can say is, I don’t question the ‘why’s of the trip any more, so that’s a plus in itself. Trust has become the word I live by.
One other thing I’ve learned during this 2 year wandering, there are beautiful things to be found in the desert, even in the wilderness! You just have to keep your eyes open, to see them
So, as this is my first post…it will be short and sweet…
Remember, God is in the desert and wilderness too…He hasn’t forgotten nor forsaken those I refer to as “wilderness wanderers”
