Blogging. I am conflicted about the whole concept of blogging. On the one hand, it seems like the ultimate self-adulation in a world drunk with selfies. What possible insight does one lonely blogger offer a society stuffed with too much useless information? Google any topic and you’ll find a plethora of quotes and articles, and probably spend hours sifting through it all. Adding to the reams of cacophony seems pointless. On the other hand, the impulse to write burns within me.
I write for myself. I write for my business, because I love what I do. I write because words carry innate power within themselves. Words sear. Convict. Touch. Hurt. Heal. They pose as insignificant chicken scratches, but don’t be fooled.
Oh no, my friend. Words aren’t just mightier than the sword. They infuse life and motive into the swing of the sword. Sentient within the universe lies a Being I call God. He created words and imparted Himself, His essence into words, leaving them open to the heart and mind of the person who uses them, be it a good heart or an evil heart.
I take these words I pen very seriously. And so should you. Because once you read them, the voice in your mind forever retains them, truth and untruth. My friends, I am honored you read my words. I promise to write strong words, edifying words, words worthy of your time.
