About 'Streams'


In this large cyber world there are many ways you came to this blog- the main thing is that you're here.

Whether friend or casual web wanderer, I'm glad you are interested enough to look around.
And since that is what you are doing, let me help you and make things clear...

I'm a Christian.  And when I say that I don't mean just the type who sits in church Sunday morning and wears the t-shirts.

I try to live out my faith and foster a personal relationship with Jesus, God, and the Holy Spirit.

I believe in Heaven and Hell...I believe there is only one way to the first and unless we take it, we are all headed for the later. Jesus saved us by grace...a free gift...He paid the price for our sins...that is it...we accept it or not. The rest is all details...relationship...the 'working out' of our salvation.

And that is what Christianity is to me...a relationship with God. And like any other relationship, there are highs and lows. I've had plenty of both. My lows have taken me to the breaking point of faith, but each time I cannot deny the reality of my God, even if I'm not always entirely convinced about His methods.

This blog, and the posts you will find here, are some of the lessons...musings...and personal revelations I've had as I go through this relationship of Christianity.

I aim to be honest...real...personal. I've been wounded and disappointed with Christians who spout scripture but have no understanding of personal and real life application, I have no desire to be like that.

I intend also to be encouraging...uplifting...and comforting.  I want the voice of this blog to be more like a conversation with a trusted friend. One who will tell you the truth upfront but give you the hope and encouragement to face what's before you.

In the midst of a dry, crazy, messed up world there is still something refreshing, solid, and trustworthy. It is the voice of the Lord, He who says...

"Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.
See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the desert
and streams in the wasteland."
~Isaiah 43:18-19~
