It’s been over four months since I’ve posted anything on this blog. Most of the reason for not writing, I believe, has to do with being somewhat “burned out”. Readers of this blog know that my dear friend Colleen and I were going back and forth on a whole host of issues (over several posts and many comments) more or less centered around the sovereignty of God and what some of that entails within the life of the believer. Even though I haven’t written anything, I have collected bits of information, statements, in addition to my own thoughts with the intent of writing. Perhaps I’ll get around to posting on some of those things. Still, I feel like I’m coming out of a “faith depression”. Through all of the studying and writing over the past many months, it was my hope that I would better understand (1) who God is and (2) the nature of a relationship I have to my heavenly father through faith. To date I don’t think I’ve succeeded in that endeavor and for some time now I think I’ve been feeling bad about that. I appreciate the freedom I have in this blog to explore aspects of my faith that indeed trouble me. I especially appreciate those who respond with a kind word or even a pointed challenge. I look forward to getting this blog started up again and, with a bit of excitement, fear and trepidation (okay, maybe that’s a bit of an overstatement); we’ll see where things end up.
