I was tempted to name my new blog something cool, like, you know, perhaps a Greek phrase, rich with meaning and an ancient, exotic sound to it, or maybe some hip, artsy name, sure to make me look awesome. And of course there were several names I couldn’t pick, simply because Blogspot is just so very popular. But then I realized, that was just stupid, because A. I didn’t ever take a single Greek class in college, and B. why must I try to appear artsy? That is dumb. But without further jabber, here is the explanation:
My heart is full of dreams, but mostly, I want to be a warrior for the Kingdom of God…sword in hand, taking on the enemy. This life is a battle. A real one. As a Christian, the only way to live is in recognition of this. Yes, I might get grimy, and I might fall before the enemy, but not for long, I pray.
Alongside this great desire to be a contender in the fight of all ages, I want to notice the little beauties, the unexpected surprises and wonders. May I see the serendipitous blessings in life, take notice, and allow it to make me a better warrior.
Friends, I am not proud of me as a warrior. The wickedness in my heart is disgusting. But I will most certainly boast in my King. In my mind I envision storming the fields, on the front lines, my sword raised and blonde braid banging on my chain mail…but I’ll be the water girl, if He wants.
This blog might include movie reviews, poems about flowers, or rants about booty shorts, but either way, I hope that it’s edifying. May it be an encouragement for you to begin, continue, and finish the fight. I want to be honest and share the beauty of life, as well as address the battle at hand. Will you join me?
Keep the faith,
