A Brand New Me

Good evening everyone! I hope all of you had a great Easter Holiday. I know I did. My parents came to church with me which is always a blessing.

I wanted to share with you the way that God is working in my life. Since the passing of my grandpa, I feel that God has opened my eyes a little bit more than they have been before.

The past couple of Sundays, I have cried during worship. I don’t know why, I just have. This is a rarity for me though.  Maybe the lyrics are touching me somehow, I don’t know.

Secondly, I have started a Bible reading plan. I found this plan on YouVersion   . I will have the whole Bible read in a year. As a matter of fact, I will admit it, I have never read the complete Bible. This will be a challenge for me, but right now I am on track.

Anyway.. I just wanted to give you all a little update on me.

Until next time readers, God Bless!

The Bible… In Blog Format

Evening readers. I hope everyone is enjoying their evening/week so far. While my wife is away enjoying time with some friends this evening, I thought I would write about something I thought about this morning in the shower.

Lately I have kinda been having some writer’s block, but kind of not. I don’t know. I have ideas about things to write about during dreams, or on my commute, and then get home and think they are stupid. At that point I decide not to publish them, and then I end up forgetting about them.

So.. Here is my idea from today. It may be stupid, but work with me here.

What if the authors of the Bible were to have computers and the internet back when the Bible was originally written? Would they write it in the form of a book, or a blog? Would the letters in the Bible be in email format? How would have technology played into it if it were around back then?

Going with the mentioning of writer’s block, do you think that the authors had it? I know that it is said, and strongly believed by some, that every word in the Bible was put into the thoughts of the authors. Do you believe that? I sort of believe that. I kind of find it hard to believe though that someone was actually dictating every word that Jesus said.

Anyway..

Those are my thoughts for the day. Feel free and add to them. Tell me what you think.

Until next time, God Bless!

The Christian Atheist

Good afternoon readers. It is Friday, which is always a good thing.

So, after writing the last blog post, I decided to go purchase a book. I have been thinking about this book for a week or so, to the point of even having a dream about it.

The book I have decided to start reading is The Christian Atheist by Craig Groeschel. The sub-title caught my eye and hasn’t let go.

“Believing in God but Living as If He Doesn’t Exist.”

Here is what the inside front cover has to say.

Are you putting your whole faith in God but living as if everything is up to you?

Craig Groeschel’s personal journey toward an authentic, God honoring life and the lessons he learned along the way are more relevant than ever. From his family and his upbringing, to the lackluster and even diametrically opposed expressions of faith he encountered, Groeschel’s frank and raw conversation about our Christian Atheist tendencies and habits is a convicting and life-changing read.

This honest, hard-hitting, and eye-opening look into the ways people believe in God but live as if he doesn’t exist is a classic in the making.

So readers, I am going to read this, maybe blog about it, etc. If it sounds like a good book to you, pick it up and we can read it together.

Until next time readers, God Bless!
