I'm making this so I can put a link in the side bar. It'll likely get edited occasionally. Besides, it's about time I explained what's going on over there.
Basically, I've managed to divide my life into seasons. Some of my older stuff was removed because it didn't really fit the tone of this blog (and because it was really random).
But for the most part, if you're interested in seeing the journey start to finish, then top three Journey category tags. In order:
-A Child Still: The College Years (2003-2005)
-Halfway Grown Up: More Than a Graduate (2006-2007)
-Sons & Daughters: Understanding Name & Inheritance (2008-Present)
I did it this way largely because I was somewhere in college before I realized I even had a testimony - one possibly worth telling, too. My life, ultimately, is one of God's unyielding faithfulness, his ever-present guard on my soul.
The short version is, if American Christians are the 'church brats' of Christianity, I am the church brat of church brats. Christian home, school, and church. I made a conscious decision to love, follow, and serve Christ at age five, and it's been one heck of a ride since.
So when you read this, it's my way of sharing the journey with you, be it Observations of a Church Brat or various meditations or frustrated daily life.
The Life in the Veil
But that's life in the veil for you - We live in two realms, one foot in the Now, and one in Eternity.
So often Scripture makes reference to the veil: whether the one Moses wore to cover his face, or our confidence before the throne of grace, or the veil that tore on the day of the Crucifixion—The veil is torn; the veil is rent and shorn away, and we all have been made anew. And so much of Scripture is devoted to teaching us how to life with our feet in two worlds: our bodies on earth, our souls yearning for the Father’s arms; our lives here, our kingdom there; pressing on toward a prize so much greater than anything we can describe.
Life in the veil is one of hope, of taking everything we know and trust and believe and letting that push us onward from glory to glory—And so with this in mind I write.
So, join me if you will. Even if our lives amount to a drink offering, so be it.
