Continuing The Adventure

54a67bddab9630_conquer the mountain Hello again! Wow, I never thought I would write in this blog again. Honestly, I thought that all my previous entries had been erased. It has been 3 years since I touched this blog. The other day, I felt a pull. That pull, I believe, is God telling me to write again. Whether this be for myself, or for others, only He knows. So, let’s see where this leads.

For those new to this site,or for anyone needing a refresher, I started this blog based off of a devotional that was presented at a small-group Christmas party back on December 13th, 2009.

In that devotional, the man leading it challenged us to live by a specific scripture.

Romans 8:15 (The Message)

This resurrection life you received from God is not a timid, grave-tending life. It’s adventurously expectant, greeting God with a childlike “What’s next, Papa?”

That message really sparked something in me to deepen my life with Christ.

Upon being challenged with that message, I decided to start doing a quiet time. During that quiet time, God told me to write. Time got in the way of that about 3 years ago, so I stopped writing. Honestly, I wish I hadn’t. By writing this blog, I learned so much about God, and well myself. Writing about what I was experiencing, reading, music I was listening to, Christian news, etc., was my quiet time with Him.

I am anxious to start connecting more with Him.

Until next time readers, God Bless!

A New Beginning

I will fully admit it. I have been a Christian since 1998. Since then, my Christian walk hasn’t grown that much at all. Well that is about to change! On December 13th, I decided to make a change. Several things happened that day.

1) My wife and I decided to live outside our box and tithe for the first time. That may be something that isn’t that big of a deal for you, but for us it was. I myself became unemployed on December 3rd, cutting my wife and I’s income in half. So tithing for us then was a huge leap of faith for us.

2) That night, my wife and I went to a Christmas party with some of our friends in our small group. At the Christmas party, a devotional was presented. In that devotional, the man leading it challenged us to live by a specific scripture.

Romans 8:15 (The Message)

This resurrection life you received from God is not a timid, grave-tending life. It’s adventurously expectant, greeting God with a childlike “What’s next, Papa?”

That message really sparked something in me to deepen my life with Christ.

3)Upon being challenged with that message, I decided to start doing a quiet time. Sure you say to yourself, that isn’t easy to do. Since being a Christian, I have never had a quiet time. So I have decided to read Job and also start reading Francis Chan’s Forgotten God.

4) Today I am starting a blog about my adventures with God. Yeah, I have had blogs previously, but never a Christian one. We will see what happens on this journey.

Until next time readers, God Bless!
