It’s not about me
It is not about me. It is not about what I can do with my own strength. It is about what I can do through Christ who strengthens me. I want to live my life with God in the center, He being the sole purpose in where I am and what I am doing.
With this, I would like to talk a little bit about this blog. What does each blog post mean to me? It means me pouring out what is on my mind and heart and putting it into words. It gives me the ability to use my writing skills in a way that touches others. I want it to mean more to God though. I want Him to work through me, and for His name to be glorified with every single post. I want His name to be uplifted more than my own.
This is really hard sometimes, especially since often times I am writing about myself. However, my goal is that you may read my posts, and not just think about me, but also relate my story to your own. Know that each post is intended for good and my purpose is not to have the spotlight on me, but to help God’s name be glorified.
We are doing a series in my church called “Honor: Reclaiming what matters most in life.” It is about honoring the Ten Commandments, and therefore, honoring God in tandem. Last week the message was about lying. How do we honor truth in today’s society? We shall not lie to one another, but in reality, that is easier said than done. I also want to take this idea of honoring truth here to this blog. I think truth in written words can be very powerful, and that is what I am trying to do through this blog, share truth. By putting my unique spin and integrating my experiences into this blog, I am able to make finding truth and meaning personal, but with all the spotlight on Him.
Truth in today’s world can be hard to find. Honestly speaking, I struggle day in and day out to keep good, biblical thoughts in my mind all day long. It just doesn’t happen, lies always sink in. And I think for those who have been reading my blog, you understand that about me. In this blog, I integrate the twisted and untruthful things in life, putting them on the table, and trying to see if there is a way to turn them around because I know with God, there is always a way.
Truth is important, and I want to bring that into the light. The biggest truth I want to bring into light is that our lives don’t revolve around us and how much we do on this Earth, but how much we do for Him and how much His name is glorified. I hope that through this post, you may come to understand more of my purpose and intentions for this blog, and that your sights may be set on His truths in your own life.
