Here we are

Good evening, as I write this I am reminded of a song that I used to sing with the choir at NIU.

"Here we are with all our burdens, Here we are with all our cares, Spirit of God, we seek your face, let your spirit fill this place"....

I recount that as I start this blog because I am a 42 year old man, I have had my issues, and still do. I am a man with faults and cares, and yeah i have my own set of insecurities.
But more than that I am reminded by Paul that I am "more than a conqueror" (Rom 8:37).
In light of this I have to speak and post,and blog and create a podcast, prepare, and train.
I was reminded by a friend and someone I both respect and love as a brother that I cannot let my issues prevent me from being who I was born to be. So starting now, I take that first step, join me on this journey, I promise I will not be boring, nor will I be complacent, but I also promise that I will try my best to make you think. Also I firmly hold the belief that everything that we believe in has to be shaken, not shaken and torn down (at least not all of it). I firmly believe that any belief system worth holding onto, should be shaken because after all if it is worth holding on to, it should be worth having shaken...
