After almost two years of blogging I can say how beautiful it has been to make new friends and keep in touch with old ones. I have also discovered that some words are noble indeed and deserve to be published, that taking pictures is fun and helps me capture beautiful moments that otherwise would be lost. I have learned that coffee goes really well with a keyboard and I have discovered the joy of writing, sharing and reaching.
Today I just want to say what this blog is not.
It is not a place to find the Word of God. Please do not read it, never, if you read this instead of God's Word!
It is not a place to look for words that will make you feel better. My goal is not to make you ponder about yourself, your own emotions. The world is full of that. Full of emptiness, of selfishness. Always trying to find an easy way out from the guilt that sin brings.
I am not pursuing a New Age type of Christianity or Contemplative Spirituality. I believe in meditation, but only on God's word and the way God commands it. I believe that the waiting and the being still should flow from my relationship with God. Waiting must be always under His sovereign Providence. God's word is the only Truth. Jesus is the only Way and salvation is by grace. I am Reformed in my Theology and that is my stand.
It is not a place to find yourself. The only safe way to look inside yourself is to examine your walking with the Lord in the light of the Scriptures.
"Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Or do you not realize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you fail to meet the test!"2 Corinthians 13:5
My prayer is that my words will bring grace to you, but I also pray that His perfect, all-sufficient Word brings life to you, and that His Word will be all-sufficient for you!
This I pray, Daily On My Way to Heaven.
