Well it is a good question! There is a plethora of really brilliant people writing blogs already, why should I? Well… I decided that Facebook was probably not the best venue for my wrestlings with faith and life, so here I am. I was encouraged by a good friend to write more and the blogosphere seemed like the best place for me to do that.
About the name. It has been a prayer of mine for years. It comes from the Apostle Paul’s address to the Ephesian Elders at the end of Acts.
I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God. Acts 20:24
If only at the end of my days that can be true! My life, your life, is God’s. Parents used to teach their children (and some still do) that the chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever! Contrary to pop pseudo psychobabble, life is not about you! James says you are vapor that appears for a little time then vanishes. So make much of God and little of yourself!
