As I was praying this morning, I felt the Lord lead me to do something a little different. I felt Him lead me to be challenged on a new level. I long and crave to go deeper, but often when I do embark on a journey to go deeper, I tend to keep it to myself. If I succeed, the world will see. If I fail, they will not. I'm being convicted that it isn't supposed to work that way. We're supposed to encourage and build up one another, and it's not really easy to do that if we don't show each other the processes by which we grow.
So, I'm going to start a new blog. It's going to be very simple. Not long or detailed thoughts like you see on the thoughts blog. I am simply going to post a challenge and a Scripture to support it. I might not post every day because some days God will be challenging me to keep going with what He's already placed before me. But, I invite you to join me. Let's be challenged together. Let's work together to grow deeper in the Lord. I invite you to share your comments with me. Some of you have succeeded in some of the challenges I will share - please share your journey with me that I may be encouraged! Some of you will be walking along in the challenges even as I do. Others of you may be frustrated by the challenges. Please share that, too. I would love for you to interact with me as we seek to grow together. May we all go deeper into who God created us to be!
