The biggest obstacle to overcome in my blogging life is the feeling that I really have nothing to say. Elmer Towns replied to a student one time about how to go about writing a book. In his Yoda voice full of the gravitas of a Jedi Knight he said, "Don’t write a book unless you have something worth saying." Ouch. And yet there is this world of blogging that goes deeper than I have time to dig. People are reading them, and honestly, some of them make absolutely no sense whatsoever.
So maybe I should change my tactics. Maybe I should view this as therapeutic….I don’t necessarily see myself as ‘cool’. Now Carlos…he’s a cool dude. Steve Fee…rocks. You’ve got your Lambs, Furticks, and the such. People reaching thousands through their ministry and thousands more through their daily blogs. I feel pretty average. But that is not how God sees you. Bla bla bla….I’m not looking for Sunday School answers, I’m just rambling. Remember…therapy.
So maybe I’m just going to say what is on my mind. And maybe someday somebody will think what I have to say is interesting. And maybe they will tell their friends. And maybe, just maybe, I will eventually have an audience peering into my cluttered head. And JUST MAYBE, a nugget of truth will fall out by accident, as when you shake your shoe upside down to get a rock out. And maybe that nugget of truth will impact somebody somewhere. And to think it would have all started with therapy.
Until then….drop me a line. Let me know your reading. And please, for heaven’s sake, give me some suggestions to make this blog look better.
