Restarting The Journey-Part One

“There are few things more crucial to us than our own lives. And thereare few things we are less clear about.

This journey we are taking is hardly down the yellow brick road. Thenagain, that’s not a bad analogy at all. We may set out in the light,with hope and joy, but eventually, our path always seems to lead us intothe woods, shrouded with a low-lying mist. Where is this abundant lifethat Christ supposedly promised?  Where is God when we need him most?What is to become of us?

The cumulative effect of days upon years that we do not reallyunderstand is a subtle erosion. We. Come to doubt our place, we come toquestion God’s intentions toward us, and we lose track of the mostimportant things in life.

We’re not fully convinced that God’s offer to us IS life. We haveforgotten that the heart is central. And we had no idea that we wereborn into a world at war.”
-Waking the Dead
By John Eldrege

I just finished reading this book and the truth is I didn’t attack withmy heart like I should have. For those few friends of mine that maystumble to this blog from time to time, should have a pretty good ideaof what this blog is about. For those of you who don’t, it has been mysmall place of sanity and reflection upon my journey through life. Ihaven’t been that faithful with this blog throughout the summer. Andwhile it has maintained its initial integrity, it hasn’t had a clearoutlined path. Mostly because I haven’t been living on one. So, it istime to saddle back up and get on track. I am going to re-read thiswonderful book, and this time read it with my heart. This blog over thenext few weeks or months will be my notes, my thoughts, my response andhopefully a guide to continue moving forward. Hopefully we will grow,not only individually but also together with our creature, our father,our guide and most importantly our friend
