Captain’s Blog – Earthdate 11-25-2017
[Time to get crackin’]
This “Captains Blog” series–admittedly–is going to to be a little different. I’m ready to be me to a tee. What I mean is– this particular series is going to be more like a journal, thus I’ve gone with “Captain’s Blog” and a flight/bird theme. It’s quirky, but I’m quirky, so it works for me.
I’m going to admit something else, this isn’t what I’d originally posted. I was never happy with this post, I kept throwing it in the trash, and then retrieving it–then throwing it right back in the trash again. I figured this time, to prevent myself from throwing it in the trash again, maybe I should just rewrite it in a way that doesn’t make me want to throw it in the trash (Sounds logical enough right)?
So to back track, when I wrote this, my nest was in need of some major de-clutter. It happens. I get off-course quite frequently. Most of the time it’s due too my poor health. If I was healthy and able to function like a healthy person maybe I could get a handle on everything; but as things stand that’s not the case, and I just have to deal with the hand I’ve been dealt the best that I can.
On another note a new Season in my walk with God began in September; this also threw me off course. Suddenly I had all these wonderful things to ponder and write about, thus I went out “leaping from my stall” as God opened that gate.
I titled this post “Flying Lessons” with the idea that as Christians we shall “soar on wings like Eagles, we will run and not grow weary, we will walk and not grow faint.” (Isaiah 40:31) I need some flying lessons. I’m not there yet. I’m not soaring, but I have that hope. Some days I’m on cloud nine, and I feel as if I’m soaring those blue skies, but then I hit a bit of turbulence and I start to nose dive.
So this is my story. I want it to be an honest look at who I am through my victories and failures, as God leads me, and I seek to know Him even more. There’s more to my blog than just this journal, and my hope is that you find some encouragement to help you with your “flying lessons” too.
“He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” –Isaiah 40:29-31
