Beginning to Blog

I have never really been into blogs. But recently, I am feeling overwhelmed at the changes in my life, my heart and my mind. I need to release these new ideas and feelings that are invading my mind, and I thought a blog would be a good way to do so. I am not doing this so I can get followers and comments—I am doing this to articulate what is going on in my mind and heart so that my thoughts will be better organized in my head and my heart when I speak to others in real life and as I carry out the works God created me to do.

I chose this scripture to represent my blog because I love how Paul writes that we, God’s people, should shine like stars when we live our lives for Him. I want to be a star in this crazy world; I want to be an example of how Jesus lived and loved. I am still learning every day how to be more like Jesus and how to live in this world. One way I am doing so is by being baptized, joining a church and becoming involved in different book and bible studies that focus on living as Jesus did.

In this blog I will probably share much of what I am reading and learning from the book/bible studies. I will also use this blog while I am on a mission trip in Africa next month. This is another exciting way that I am living my life for Him—going and making disciples in other nations.

There will also probably be lots of pictures and lots of random information about my life. Just whatever is giving me particular emotion that present day—I will write about it.

I look forward to sharing my thoughts on here. If you’re reading this, beware. I am on quite a spiritual ride at the moment and am feeling quite passionate about many things. This passion may cause intense and/or unorganized blogs.

Let the blogging begin!
