maybe i should explain

April 13, 2010

my last two posts were pretty serious. not that ive never been serious here. but the theme has been heavy, the questions tough, my answers…cryptic, perhaps, but mostly gray.

i just wanta say, im not going through some mid-life crisis. im not doubting God or my relationship with Him, my purpose…nothing like that.

the last two weeks at TRF have been really great. the messages have spurred some questions in my mind. questions that are hard. topics that are too often swept under the rug. im just at a place where im willing to address it.

i have to know why i think the way i do. and that will likely entail some deep digging into my mind, thoughts and heart.

im ok with that.

i have to be. if i dont define the undefined, when its in my ability, then im left in limbo. i hate being in limbo. its too…mediocre.

we’re meant for more than mediocrity.

im just pushing myself here. no other agenda. no issues. no problems.

and its made for some incredible discussion, confessions, revelations and connections here as you all have shared your hearts and thoughts.

iron sharpening iron.

thank you for that.
