For this first post, I thought I’d talk a little bit about what I hope to accomplish through this blog.
And that is, first and foremost, to keep myself sane.
College can be a fairly stressful place at times and I have also taken on a load of other responsibilities to keep me busy this year. Being a Resident Assistant, Presidenting a Student Club, starting a new campus ministry, and leading a Bible Group are but a few examples. I know that the only thing that will keep me alive through all of this craziness is Jesus Christ. Having dedicated my life to Him rather recently, I don’t know a lot about what the journey will look like. I am still very in the dark about many things theology-wise. But I pray for more knowledge and wisdom daily, and I know God will be faithful.
But enough about me. I know I can ramble at times I’ve been told by friends and family that I’m a bit of a rattler. Err, I mean rambler. So despite what I may lead you to believe, it’s not all about me. This blog, in addition to maintaining my oh-so-sharp wit and writing “skills,” will hopefully serve as a place to provoke thought and great revelation.
My goal is that these words will help even one person along in their paths. We are all such broken people and my desire is that I can just love people where they are at. This blog seems like a nonintimidating way to do this. Everybody, myself foremost among them, is lost without Something Greater. I can’t walk this life alone. Knowing this, the immediate implication is that I want to ease others’ journeys toward the One who can fulfill them; I want to help people along in this crazy thing called life. Ugh, that was so cliché of me to write. Rereading this, I am pretty sure Shakespeare is bleeding from his eyes and turning in his grave (he invented English, right?).
Thanks for giving me a chance.
As the French say before they read their blogs (blogúes?),
