The Journey Begins

This is not my first rodeo with blogging. For over four years, I wrote a blog that was, in the end, called “Honest Thoughts from a Pastor”. God made it clear in the final months that the blog had to go.

After some time to pray and reboot, you are reading a blog that I pray will encourage those who have been wounded in the fight. We all have scars. We all, like Jacob in his encounter with what is believed to be the pre-incarnate Christ, walk with a limp. Your scars or limp may be from addiction, divorce, or some form of abuse. Whatever it is, there is hope for you.

As I write, I will write about difficulties and scars. But I won’t stop there. God doesn’t want you to stay in your difficulties. He wants you to triumph. He wants you to use those difficulties to help others.

While I pray that many in vocational ministry will be reading, I long to minister to the overall body of Christ as well as to those who have yet to follow Christ. When all is said and done, I can’t wait to read and hear the testimonies of readers who have been “wounded yet healed”.

Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton
