I wanted to start off the new year fresh. I decided to start a new blog, instead of continuing with the Colorful Journey. I want this new year to be a year of pilgrimage, a year of renewed desire to follow Christ. I have also recently been confronted with my own brokeness (sinfulness) and the need for me to acnowledge it, confront it, and deal with it openly.
My wife and I were sober for a long time. But recently we have allowed alcohol back into our lives, and it has cost us much. I have lost my place as leader of our church’s bus ministry, I have lost my witness with my children, my sister, and the children who ride the bus, and so many more.
I have come to realize that alcohol is not the cause of my problems, but rather my brokeness, and my unwillingness to confront it, confess it and deal with it, or rather get out of the way and let the Spirit deal with it. I hope that as I post thoughts along the way I can help others as well, and recieve help from others as well.
I’m not going to make the same mistake I did last time and try to come with “big” or deep” posts all the time. I work a full time job, have a 40 minute commute each way, and have responsibilities to my family, and others. I hope to post a few days a week, but I am not going to stress out about it if I don’t. As always I welcome comments and discussion
