Why this? Why this blog? What are my intentions? Why, when I am capable of doing most anything else, would I choose to blog – especially when until quite recently I have never even followed a single blogger? Well, I suppose the following quote will answer that just fine: “If you want to change the face of the world, you must change the hearts of men.”
I have been too deep, engulfed in too much darkness, and then rising – rising to some of the brightest places you could be physically and spiritually to not do something about it. There are far too many out there that currently feel stuck in the state that I too dreaded so much when I was entrenched there. There are far too many that do not know better, nor do they even have the slightest idea where to look. And, there are far too many that are not being helped. I cannot go on any longer without doing the absolute best I can to help others be guided to the most glorious life that is currently
beyond their imagination. I see so much depression, so much anger, so much sorrow, so much misunderstanding, so much judging, and so much frustration. I will not stand at the sidelines, watching attentively yet whispering only to myself “I know how you feel. I was there once too. It is ugly; it is terrifying; it is dark.” I will not turn my head in shame at my brother, or my sister, when we reach the heavens and they ask “Why did you hesitate? I was waiting for you. You never came to my aid.” I couldn’t bear that. I have already waited far too long out of fear. Out of fear of what!? Man. I…feared…man. Forgive my insolence, but how stupid! When I am being pulled so powerfully in one direction, yet I am clinging so tightly to an assumed outcome of negative overall perceptions of peers – that is idiocy. But, all is well now. I have finally come to my senses and begun the journey.
So, what is the journey? What is the purpose to all these words; all these little black markings against a white background illuminated by some technology understood by those with far more education than my self? I have come to know of vast truths by consistently doing small, yet significant things. I have reached pure joy and understanding of heavenly treasures I never would have dreamed even existed, and it is all due to a small, simple,
step in the right direction. I want to share the paths I have walked, the lessons I have learned, and the goodness I have felt with everyone. I truly feel that there is something I can offer any one individual. “That sure sounds cocky” you may be thinking right now, but it is just the opposite. I can only offer something to someone if I write from the heart; if I write by inspiration of the Holy Spirit. I will strive to do the best I can to not even put an uninspired conjunction in one of my sentences.
The Spirit is powerful, and it manifests unto us truths that we need to be made known to us at the very moment we need them. So, that is my goal. My goal is to continually allow that Spirit to work within you, as you read my insights and life-stories. If you are struggling – because frankly, we all are – I want to allow one more hand to help in your life. If you know someone who is struggling – because frankly, we all do – I would love to offer you words of encouragement to share with that someone who is currently walking where I once have. I simply want to fulfill the measure of my creation: I want to be a tool in God’s hand. After all, that is what we are here for, right?
