I want to blog… really I do. I have been reading my Bible, listening to sermons online and finishing up a book, all of which have given me thoughts – deep thoughts I tell you.

But life is getting in the way and today I will be going to help peel old wallpaper from my niece’s new condo walls instead of computing.

But I’ll leave you with one deep thought I’ve been considering:

A great deal of our life is wrapped up in the image we try to project to people around us – even other bloggers. We can’t help it, we want other’s approval/admiration. We think if we’re popular then we’re successful, at least I know I do. But it is extremely difficult to be popular in this world to the glory of God.

Why? Because the world demands too high a price. The world demands our loyalty, requires us to agree with their non-biblical view of things, accept their lack of morals, surrender our convictions, and speak with their politically correct vocabulary so that they don’t have to feel guilty or uncomfortable, ever.

Galations 2:20 is one of my favorite verses.

I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

I may not ever be a popular/successful blogger – but I will continue to blog only to the glory of God regardless.
