I’d like to welcome to this page and to my journey. I made a conscious decision to change my focus in life away from worldly things (paycheck, title, status, pedigree, car, etc.) and towards God and the teachings of Jesus Christ (I will explain this more in a later post). It took me wandering in my own personal desert for just over 40 years of my life to find my way here. So far I have enjoyed a life filled with adventure, achievements, recognition, and other accolades that our culture seems to value. I’ve experienced moments of great happiness from time to time because I was looking for happiness, and I think a lot of us do this. How many times have you said or heard “I just want to be happy?” Unfortunately, I should have been looking for joy because joy stays with us even in the darkest and most challenging seasons of our lives, whereas happiness is temporary emotional state. I think I’m on the right track now, and it only took an act of God because only God can change our hearts and our minds, and only God can fill our hearts and souls with eternal joy, if we just give him the opportunity.
You might be wondering why the website? Great question! I want to take this new life one step further. As my time shifts towards the sunset of my life here on earth, I want to leave knowing I have done as much as I can in service to God. Not because I’m trying to earn my place in heaven, no … Jesus took care of that … but I truly want to make a difference in the lives of others and help bring them into the light. So over the course of the next few years, I will be on My Ministry Mission to become a pastor myself and I will use this website to track progress, share my thoughts, share what I’ve learned, and communicate it to the world.
I appreciate the visit, and I sure hope you stick around because this journey will be even more amazing if I can share it with others.
