Why am I blogging? Who really cares? I’m not sure, but honestly, I need an outlet!
For some time now I have been reading various posts around the internet. Sometimes I’m encouraged by their content and sometimes I’m frustrated. My frustration often grows as I scroll down and read the comments to some of those posts (I’m starting to learn not to do this!). Sometimes I’ll leave a comment too, but it gets lost in all the others so I seldom do that anymore. So I needed a place where I could voice my opinions, where I could have my say.
I thought of naming this blog “Here I Stand” reasoning that I’d be making big, bold statements, kind of like Martin’s (you know, “Here I stand . . .). But who am I fooling? Much of my thinking is just that: thinking. Nothing new, nothing really spectacular, just my thoughts on various subjects. More than anything though, as I write my thoughts I begin to understand them better. As I hear from others about those thoughts I learn a little more and either refine or confirm what I believe.
Hopefully, my posts will be meaningful to more than just myself. Hopefully, someone will stumble across something I’ve said and will be encouraged, moved, motivated or even changed. Hopefully, God will be glorified in what I say and in what I and others may be called to do as a result.
