I confess that…
Recently I heard this comment:
Confession is good for the soul, but not your reputation.
I will take that chance today as I confess to a few things. I have blogging for a bit over a month now. I am starting to find my rhythm as far as getting three blog posts up a week. In that, there has been a haunting voice coming from behind me.
It goes like this, “Kevin you are not an expert. You have not mastered all the thoughts and ideas you have thrown out there on your blog. You do not have it all together. You have yet to completely embody all the concepts that you have brazenly thrown out there.”
And yes, these are all true. Please hear me, this is not a voice of the enemy or of discouragement. It is the voice of reality.
So, here is my confession.
My name is Kevin. I write about things I care about. I write about things I have experienced and seen to be true. I have not yet fully lived into all the truth that I attempt to name, but I am actively pursuing it. I am actively taking steps forward. I do not know all that I could know. I do not know more than others in all things at all times.
I am attempting in my writing to name that which I see and know. To name what is happening my heart in and in hearts of those around me. I write what I feel like I am being called to write. I write for others yes, but I also write for myself. I write to name “out loud” those things that are emerging in and around me.
So, if you read my blog on a regular basis, please know I am not perfect nor am I claiming to be. Blog posts, with clean text and a cool picture communicate togetherness. I am not “together” in the full sense of the word. I am making imperfect progress. I keep moving ahead. I know something is being worked out in me which is beyond me. I know that God is doing something in me and I am called to participate.
What I know that I know that I know:
grace is real. And because grace is real then
change is possible. And since change is possible,
growth is expected.
This is my heart’s belief and what I want to share with others.
Indeed it is time.
It is the time to break up your fallow ground.
It is time to sow.
It is time to reap.
Break up -:- Sow -:- Reap.
