I started this blog a couple of years ago, thought it was a good outlet primarily for myself before I knew what was adhd, before understanding depression feelings. I find it it interesting that as the world seems to be hitting a wall, that I find myself starting to hit my stride, understanding God’s grace and faithfulness to finish his work started. One of my favorite songs was written by Bob Dylan, and musically perfected by Jimi Hendrix. All along the watchtower was and still today one of the most profound Christian songs ever written, yet finds obscurity within the christian community. Mainly because of the drug use of the days it was written, the push back against rock music in general. I do find it to be though, that the rocks do cry out and praise the name of God in the absence of awareness of God in the culture we live. That all said, the song does start from the end and begins with the last verse. Seems to me a frequent theme in life. We struggle through out life, and toward the end we find out that really if we listen, after however long it takes, our existence on earth, which is minuscule in the eyes of God is only the beginning of life. To lose yourself is to gain. I know much of this to the unbeliever, and really to those “born” into Christianity as far as family ties can be hard to grasp. For what reason do I need to be saved, and from what if I have no understanding of what I need to be saved from?
We do live in crazy times. I do believe time draws near to the end and I believe that the earth groans in longing for peace, or more so maybe just for absence of continual drain of merely existing for the abuse mankind. I know that as a Christian that the end is not the end but a beginning. We cling still though to an idea that we are entitled to certain rights that we must have or else. I do believe God intended us to do his will till the end as much as possible. We can’t simply give up, but should be encouraged to be good stewards. Love God Love truth, love peace, love your neighbor. Lately though I’ve wondered how truly that much of what we cling to is christ or merely vanity as Solomon would say.
Hopefully this will be a good place to inspire thought, challenge ideas, encourage believers and bring more people to christ. If nothing else be an expression of what God has shown me. If anyone reads this cool if not nothing lost. If it’s not in God’s plan it will end and something new will begin.
