In the beginning Nate hesitantly created a blog.
Now the blog was formless and void,
darkness was over the surfice of its empty text boxes,
and Nate’s fingers hovered over the keyboard.
And Nate said, “let there be a title,”
No title appeared.
So after several more attempts at spontaneousness creation and about ten minutes of brainstorming, I gave up on my own lacking creativity and spit out the first idea that my faltering mind felt led towards.
So let me set the tone.
I want this first attempt at blogging to be a detox of all of my pride and selfishness and in-submission that I sense is just waiting to sabotage this blog in the future.
Unfortunately, the only thing that I will ever be able to promise any of you as readers and friends, is that I will slip up on a quite regular basis.
But when that happens, I need you guys to call me out on it.
Whatever “it” might be.
Misinterpreting scripture. Whining. Lack of faith in God’s promise. Neglecting friendships. As well as a host of other ditches I have been known to fall into.
Thankfully, there is this wonderful little box where you can “leave a comment” and either challenge or encourage me.
Please use it often!
So in essence:
My personal dream for this blog is that it would have as little to be with me and as much to do with God as possible. Re-centering on Him in everything we do is absolutely necisary for this to even be remotely worthwhile
To read or to write.
With that I leave you.
