No, it's true. The old coach is actually going to blog. This may seem unbelievable to those who know how much I hate to type, but who knows maybe someday I will just be able to dictate. To your great relief, I'm sure, this will not really be a personal blog. I will leave that to you facebookers. Instead, I hope to use this as place to share my thoughts about life in today's world in light of God's Word and filtered through my personal experience.
I know, I know. Why would anybody care what I think. Well, probably no one does, but just in case, I will give it a try. Seriously, what I hope, is that I can share some things that will encourage you to seek a closer walk with God, through our Lord Jesus Christ. Maybe it is celebrating my very close to but not quite 60th birthday (I figure that being old should be good for something), that finally led me to do this. My hope is that it will be a place people can come to when they need a little lift, a dose of reality and desire to learn what the Bible has to say on certain issues. (Not that I claim to be a scholar, you will just have to check out anything I say to see if it is correct. Pretty sneaky way to encourage you to read your Bible, huh?)
1st Peter 5:2 says to the elders"Be shepherds of God's flock that is under your care..." I believe that all of us who have walked with the Lord for many years have an obligation to share some of the lessons we have learned in order to help younger believers grow. This is the desire of my heart and the real reason for this blog. We will see where God takes us. I hope to update at least twice a week. I hope you will join me on this journey. With the love of our Lord Jesus Christ,
