Five words: It's. Been. Way. Too. Long.
As you can see, it’s been about a month since my last blog post. Much has happened and I’m excited to write on a regular basis again.
Each day, I sit down to do what I'm doing right now. I write. Every day. No matter what. Typically, I do this at night when I'm gathering my thoughts and reflecting on the day. I write about the highlights unless I have some other idea that's better. But regardless, I write.
It’s been about a year since some big changes started occurring in my life. A year ago I started Praxis, plugged into a large community, and took on challenges I never thought I could accomplish. I learned what it was like to travel far and explore new places. I turned 18 and began a new chapter of my life.
Psalms has been one of my favorite books of the Bible for such a long time. It's raw. It's intimate. It's real. People may think the Bible is a long list of rules when in reality a lot of it is just other people pouring their hearts out to Jesus.
When I was little, I would spend a lot of time sitting on the couch and looking out the window to daydream. I was a very imaginative (and introverted) child so some of my favorite memories were made staring out that window.
If life isn't meant to be an adventure, then we should all know what our end goal is. Do you have a clear picture of your "end goal"? I don't. Maybe it's associated with a calling, but I'm not sure of my calling is either.
