Like most folks, I do not intend to tell many people, if any, about my blog. I suppose if someone stumbles across it, that is fine; as long as I did not direct them to it.
All in all, this should be a good way for me to keep track of my thoughts and ideas ... basically a public journal.
Life's been hectic lately. Several not so good things going on and a resulting feeling of being overwhelmed. I was reading the other day about someone who was saying that times like these really test their faith. Sort of a "if you really love me, God, why am I having to go through this?" thing. Well, people have asked that for several thousand years, certainly back to the Israelites wandering around in the desert. So, there's nothing new to that. For me, though, it is the tough times in life which remind me of why I have faith in God. He gives me strength during the tough times, just knowing that He is in control and that the tough times are actually times of preparation. The knowledge that I will late look back and see how God was at work in my life even in the tough times is hugely comforting. If this is all preparation for things yet to come, though, it sort of keeps one on the edge of their seat wondering what will come next though, eh?
Well, I have to run.
