About this blog

This blog was created to make it easier for my friends to keep up with my book-writing process. The book is called "Journey to the Heart of God". It is about the importance of pursuing God's righteousness in order to live as He intended so that we can live a full and abundant life: the eternal life Christ came to give us. Happy reading! :D

Ya Learn Something Everyday

I once heard it said that when you stop learning, you might's well lie down and die. Honestly, I think I've learned more since I graduated from college than I ever learned in college. In fact, lately I have been so busy learning I haven't even thought about writing. Sometimes I wonder if I'll ever be satisfied and stop rewriting my book and just leave it how it is. But I keep learning. And re-learning, sometimes.
In addition to reading a lot of the Bible, I've taken a fancy to reading theological books whenever I can get my paws on one. Lately I've been reading A.W. Tozer's "The Pursuit of God" and eating it up. It's so good! As many books as I read on similar subjects, I'm always eager to hear another perspective on it. God is so vast and incomprehensible that countless numbers of people can write a book on the same subject and still come up with a different perspective. Kinda makes me think about how the Bible is so complete like that--no matter how many times you read it, you can always get something new out of it. And somebody else always comes up with another tidbit out of it! It's so awesome!
So lately, I've been so much enjoying studying and learning that I've completely put writing on hold (again). That is to say, I'm not re-writing anything right now. Just taking down more notes and thoughts. I think I've written about five books now :P

Keep writing and learning, I know the Lord will have a purpose in your work!

Be careful your theology doesnt become too complicated that you miss the core message.

I did this once. I learned and learned then began to loose focus of what things like "End Times" and "Salvation Doctrine" are and they became so convoluted that I had to just stop learning. The problem is there are so many opinions that it is easy to get them all jumbled up in your mind and make it hard for you to know what "You" believe.

That was me. Now its just simple. Jesus Loves Me this I know, saved by grace through faith and not of works, show me your works and I will show you my faith by my works, and so on.
