A long absence

I started this blog way back in June 2008. I wanted to blog on a daily basis about the Book I treasure more than any other book on this planet, but alas my good intentions never materialized. Perhaps I was over-ambitious as the Lord blessed us with a child just a month later . . . or perhaps I was just not disciplined enough . . . whatever it is, I realized today that sometimes there are thoughts that you just can’t tweet. So an obvious answer is to blog about it instead, and share the blog on Twitter. Thank you Lord for the inspiration.

I think Dan Rockwell follows an excellent strategy in his blog Leadership Freak: he blogs in 300 words or less. I am going to do the same when I feel inspired to write something.

“May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.”

Watch this space . . .

So, you arrive on this blog, look at how regularly this blogger posts, and think ‘what a hypocrite . . . blogging through the Bible . . . wonder if this person even reads the Bible . . .’ 🙂

I agree . . . although I am trying to study the Bible regularly, trying to post something that makes sense is taking time that I don’t have with a 9 and a half month old in the house . . . so, I will continue to post here as soon as the summer holiday arrives . . .

In the meanwhile, there are a number of great sites you can visit:

God bless you!

The purpose of this blog is not to argue the reliability, authenticity, and authority of the Bible – although, in all fairness, it will probably be addressed as I journey through the Bible. Instead, I am going to comment on verses that stand out for me on this journey.

Feel free to comment on what I have to say, or to add your own reflections on these verses as comments. If you choose to disagree with me, please do so in a way that respects the fact that I am but a student of the Bible, and that I am convinced of the reliability, authenticity, and authority of the Bible. However, I am more than willing to hear and respect what you have to say. Please keep in mind that it is hard to accepts someone’s words when they are delivered in a harsh manner, especially when they disrespect the other person’s worldview. I may comment on a worldview different than mine but I commit to do it in a respectful manner.

Ultimately the purpose of this blog is to marvel about the miraculous richness contained in the pages of the Bible.
