I just realized that this blog has just passed it’s 1st birthday … since starting in August 22, 2003. It’s been quite an experience indeed.
I’ve got to know new friends. I’ve grown in confidence (I think) in my writing or articulation of all sorts of thoughts inside me. My perspective has been stretched. New horizons have opened up far beyond my imagination. I’ve definately learnt a lot though the reading of other people’s thoughts and the links they provide. It’s even become a kind of spiritual disicpline. And when I find out some people have read the stuff I scribble and found help … it really encourages me a lot… it’s a very 2 Corinthians 4:7 thing … (which has become another key verse for me personally togther with John 20:21), so I do hope “blogging” like many of the other things I do is an extension of who I am as a saint and sinner at the same time, journeying with Christ on earth and inviting others to come along as well …
“But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, so that the surpassing greatness of the power will be of God and not from ourselves; …” (NASB)
“But this precious treasure – this light and power that now shine within us – is held in perishable containers, that is, in our weak bodies. So everyone can see that our glorious power is from God and is not our own “ (NLT)
“If you only look at us, you might well miss the brightness. We carry this precious Message around in the unadorned clay pots of our ordinary lives. That’s to prevent anyone from confusing God’s incomparable power with us.” (Message)
