Why I blog

I have a confession to make. Last January when I began writing this blog, I was receiving school credit for it. I knew I wanted to write a blog and asked my teacher if I could make it into an independent study project for an english credit. Although I definitely wasn’t blogging for the school credit, it was definitely an added incentive and made sure that I would get up three posts a week in order to fulfill the requirements and receive the credit. When high school ended and there was no longer an academic incentive for writing on here, I had to ask myself some hard questions. Why do I blog? What is behind my words? Are they significant or am I just wasting my time and my reader’s time? My first post that I put up had some reasons for writing my blog that still stand today. However, reading 1 Peter 3 this morning with the guys presented another reason.

But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect -1 Peter 3:15

I want my blog to be about this verse. I want it to declare the reason for the hope that I have, but I want to do it with gentleness and respect. I want it to share the Truth in love. And if my blog isn’t doing this, if a certain post doesn’t fit this bill, let me know.

In Christ alone my hope is found
He is my light, my strength, my song
This Cornerstone, this solid ground
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm

What heights of love, what depths of peace
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease
My Comforter, my All in All
Here in the love of Christ I stand
