What's the point?
May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in Your sight, O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer. -Psalm 19:14
So, blogging. This is a new experience for me. I have a lot to say about a lot of stuff, but posting it on the internet where anyone can look? It makes me feel uncomfortable. But hey, that's kind of the point. Out of my comfort zone where I can be matured. I'm doing my best not to go back and edit my posts a million times.
The title of my blog is pretty self explanatory. I'm going to write about the meditations of my heart. I pray that I can be completely honest with myself and everyone else. I am not perfect, and some of the things I let myself dwell on are far from perfect. But I know I can be transformed by the renewing of my mind, by God's word the more that I study and read. (Romans 12:2) I just want to reflect on what God Himself teaches me, right here.
But here is my little dilemma. I was talking to my mentor, and she was telling me about how a few weeks ago her pastor brought a message that was about how, "it is not all about us, but it is all about God." I don't at all want this blog to be all about me, because that would be very unimportant and a waste of precious time that I could spend proclaiming the name of Jesus. (Philippians 3:7-11)
So I'm praying that this will be a Christ-centered blog. That if anyone reads it, it brings them closer to God and helps edify and enrich their relationship with Christ as I grow in my relationship with Him. (1 Corinthians 1:4-6)
I hope you enjoy!
