I like to think my postings on this blog site give occasion for others to reflect and consider their own personal walk with the Lord. The articles I write are from my own observations and/or struggles which are probably common to most people.
My hope is that the Lord working through me, and my ‘putting myself out there’ will help to enable those who read my postings to experience their own frailties, without condemnation, yet with hope and a sincere effort to advancing in their own walk to be more Christlike.
If I have failed at this in any of my blog postings, I would sincerely apologize, and add that I do continue to possess a sin nature and so will sometimes fail to meet such high standards.
Having said that, I have, on more than one occasion, been unsuccessful in being a witness to Christ regarding online discussions elsewhere. And I am truly ashamed.
My recourse has been to first recognize this, sincerely repent, and then fully intend to change (which is what repentance is); to become more Christlike. That is my goal.
I find as I age, I am becoming more passionate about following the Lord and leaving my own self behind. It is becoming easier, but there is still so much to do.
I have a long road ahead of me.
What I say to others, whether it be online or elsewhere, is vitally important to my witness for Christ and it is equally important to my personal walk with Him. I should never want to mar either; for my sake or others.
My heart needs to be right with the Lord at all times; that is why it is essential that I spend time with Him each day. Without that most important ingredient in my day, I will never be equipped to glorify and honor Him as I should.
Thanks Courtney, for the opportunity to briefly respond to that very significant question.
