I love blogging, sharing, and the Word of God; in reverse order. But as anyone reading this can tell, the blogging aspect of my sharing has been woefully neglected. There’s a reason for that, but there are no excuses. I am married……with four kids……active in ministry…..trying to resurrect or pursue a more active role in music……and I am trying to complete a degree in information technology with a concentration in database administration. Oh yeah, I work for Pfizer Consumer Healthcare. These are what occupy major chunks of my 25 hour days. But still, I have know excuses.
When I started blogging with Perspective, it was a way to get a vent while doing something I enjoy, writing, and interacting with people beyond facebook shenanigans. Eventually I started this blog and somehow, whenever people went to my profile, Search Me Lord (SML) is what was listed first. I could blame that on blogger’s tendency to do the unexplainable, but I prefer to blame God.
While perspective is just that, my perspective on current events, Search Me Lord is GOD’s perspective often times of me and by extension others that can identify with some of what I may …… excuse me…. what God may be dealing with me about. This blog is an extension of a call on my life, not a habit. It is a part of who I am based on the will of God not me. When I think of all the things I know I should be doing, I think of Myles Munroe's trip past a cemetery. He was driving and God said, "most of them never became who I called them to be". Ouch!
So there should be a minimum of two relevant posts per month on SML. No junk postings, just so I can say I posted something. Posts like the one I never wrote for Easter titled “Don’t waste it. Celebrating the resurrection but living an un-resurrected life.” Or the post that I never wrote titled, “SHUT UP. Learning How to Argue From Jesus’ Example” (I choose to hear nothing, and I make no reply. For I am waiting for you, O LORD. You must answer for me, O Lord my God. Psalms 38:14-15). I have a blogger friend (not you) that really needs to stop validating haters with her constant rebuttals. (But Jesus held his peace Matthew 26:63a)
This is a calling I can no longer neglect, so it’s time for me to press through all of my (in)valid reasons for complacency. See y’all real soon.
I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:14
