Now, what is it I want to share? I think I will simply explain why I have decided to plunge into the world of blogging. I appreciate the opportunity to express myself as a Christian in an atmosphere such as this. I have been blessed to be saved for a long time, since childhood, and still remain fascinated by the salvation experience as an adult. My closeness to God has waxed and waned, a sad fact of my life. Doesn't it seem to be human nature to put Him on the back burner when things are going well in our lives? I know for me that rings true; I have almost relegated God to being a magician of sorts, seeking His "slight of hand" when circumstances in my life have taken a turn for the worse, wanting His "quick fix" which is not only disrespectful but shows a shocking lack of true reverence which I should be exhibiting toward the Creator of all.
Thankfully, circumstances in my life, as well as spiritual maturity, have shown me the error of my ways and allow me a peace and contentment which surpass my ability to understand. I have a heavenly Father quick to forgive and restore my relationship with Him.
