Checking in

Just yesterday, a brother in Christ sat at this computer here and read some past entries from my weblog. After having spent some time talking about writing, I thought that this was a great way to introduce myself to him. I had absolutely no idea what a difference that would make in both of our lives. He'd just read "No Pity Please." The following link will take you there: .
What I didn't know about this young man is that he'd been going through a marital separation and had been struggling spiritually and emotionally. This kind, seemingly strong man has some brokenness that no doubt he'd like to see healed. What he didn't know is that I've struggled through a few other issues that I was scared to be transparent enough to mention them here or anywhere else. Not too long ago I considered truly pouring my heart out in word; yet, I was too scared to deal with the turmoils of the recent past. I sit here with the sudden realization that the very things that I'd rather keep hidden secrets of my past are lessons I've learned and that they're no benefit to anyone if I keep them locked inside never to be mentioned again. I also realize that this may very well be a therapeutic journey that I'd benefit from taking. So, I sit here, announcing to whomever may click onto the weblog that I'm planning on sharing some of the lessons that God has taught me with more transparency than every before. And my prayer is that anyone who reads it will be touched in some life-changing way that glorifies God and blesses them.
More later.
