The journey continues

My journey continues...

Today my post is concerning being a lifelong student.   Being a student is a state of mind.
If you are not growing, you are dying.  I think this is true in many aspect.... physical, mental, and spiritual.

Stop working your muscles and atrophy sets in.  The muscles begin to degrade.
The same is true mentally, stop using it, start losing it.

I also believe this applies to me spiritually.   If I am not working to grow spiritually, I will degrade spiritually.

Thus, the purpose of this blog...

To be honest, it is not really about getting followers. I'll enjoy the feedback, but this is really about challenging myself to grow.  Over the last couple years, I have began reading and setting aside time to grow spiritually.  In 2018, I decided to do something that I have never done... I began to journal.
This year, I decided to take it up a notch.  I spent a little money, registered a domain, and committed to blogging.

I realized that when I write, it helps me process.  It helps me to recognize areas where I still need to grow.

Come alongside if you would like.

I am reading a couple books right now....
A Shelter in the Time of Storm by Paul David Tripp
It is a 52 chapter walk through Psalm 27.
I will read and re-read the same chapter every day for a good portion of the week.

The second I just began today

In The Shadow of Grace Excerpts from the Life of G. Campbell Morgan
This book I will read in the evenings and weekends.  I plan to go through it slowly to ingest what I can.

I want to thank one of my pastors and dear friend, cycleguy, who blogs here.
cycleguys spin
He has a second blog you can reach from there as well.
His commitment to helping me grow has been much appreciated.

I look forward to this journey together, come along when you can and if the you choose to leave this trail, please find another.


  1. I am a huge Paul Tripp fan because He is a huge Jesus fan. I finished , A Quest For More and now into War of Words. He writings draw you in, stir the heart, gives wisdom and strength for the stirring. Then you realize, I needed that, thank you God.

    1. Thanks for stopping by Betty... I agree... thankful Bill turned me on to Paul Tripp a couple years ago. Went through "New Morning Mercies" for two years.
      Glad I did.
