Hello again, blog world. I’m dusting off my fingers and giving it another go. I haven’t kept a blog since 2005, and I miss the outlet for writing. One of my hopes for the new year is that I will begin writing more, and hopefully this blog will help.
One of my all-time favorite verses of Scripture is 1 Corinthians 13:12.
For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known.
What you’re going to get here are just a bunch of dim reflections. Oh, how I long for the face to face. I long to know fully just as I also have been fully known. But right now I just know in part — dim reflections of the real thing.
I think everyone has an innate desire to just be known — truly known and understood. That’s probably why blogging started in the first place . . . we put a piece of ourselves out there with the hope that someone, anyone, will get to know us. In my case this time around, it may be so that I can get to know myself a little better as I wrestle with life, and in turn get to know my Father a little better. If you get to know me along the way, then that’s a bonus for me; but I hope moreso that my dim little reflections might point anyone who reads them to the One whom I ultimately hope to reflect.
I fail. A lot. Every day. I’m a mess. But I’m going to keep moving forward in grace, and I hope to honor Christ along the way.
