Welcome to my blog, or what I like to call my journey to figuring out who God is, what God is trying to say to me, and what I’m going to do about it. But to stay concise, let’s just refer to it as my blog.
For those who know me, you’re wondering how this journey seems to have come about all of a sudden. For those who don’t, you’ll learn more than you probably want to know about me if you choose to continue reading. Back to those who know me— I’m still me. Meaning I’m still the sarcastic, cynical brat I’ve always been. I still read way too many books, clean the house when it’s already clean, watch movies, sleep way too much and enjoy the finer things in life like beer, junk food, and cake.
You’re probably all still wondering how this journey started. And that’s partially my fault, as I’ve never been very candid when it comes to my belief system. I was raised Catholic, meaning I endured Sunday school every week for years on end, and then I just kind of gave up after my confirmation. I knew Catholicism wasn’t for me, but I didn’t really do much to figure out what exactly was. To fill the void, I set up my own little system that helped me cope that went along the lines of God having a plan and the good and bad stuff I went through was all part of it.
I’ve recently realized my system isn’t really enough. Yes, God does have a plan. But the stuff that happens to me every day is God trying to guide me, and I haven’t been a very good listener. I’m still not a very good listener, but trying has to count for something, right? And I think the more I try to listen the more I’ll start to hear. At least I hope that’s how this works. But, in a nutshell, that’s what this blog is all about—not figuring out how it all works, but getting a pretty good idea.
