In all honesty, I’ve started this blog not knowing where I am going. I see no purpose in it unless it profits the soul. How it will do that, or if it will do so, is left to be seen.
I write primarily about spiritual life but I struggle with the point of it. I realize that there is nothing I can think, understand or convey that will ever move myself or another into the fullness of Christ. Hearing leads only to believing; following requires something more. Following Christ in the shallow and deep, is foremost a question of the will, and as I can not direct that in anyone, not even in myself much of the time, I can’t really profit your soul by what I write.
So why write? More important, why read what I have to say?
I know the urgency I feel to follow Christ is one shared by several so I’m not unique in that, but I do think that I have a habit of honing in on details and expressing them uniquely. Not sure why that is, it just seems to be true. What you’ll get depends on what I’m reading or stewing about in my heart. I’ll post only if something makes me pause rather than trying to generate content to post. If I stumble upon something I deem novel and important enough, I’ll share it here…instead of annoying my facebook friends with long status updates.
The inspiration behind Kingsgrass is the importance of identifying and accepting reality. My posts will likely begin in the “field eating grass” and end in the presence of God. Like what Nebuchadnezzar did, but more. While every knee will bow and acknowledge God for who He is, the saint does more, they follow, and that is my goal. The hope is that I, and you the reader, will continually move beyond what is acknowledged into obedience of all things, and thus, profit the soul. The hope is that I may encourage you to press on through my own determination to do the same.
And of course, I have not taken hold of all of it yet. I do press on though, sometimes awkwardly, but I do press on, not waiting for it to happen to me but instead searching, striving, resting, trusting….unceasingly keeping it in front of me, and I make it my ambition to have no others. This blog catalogs some of my thoughts along the way.
