One Year Later

It was one year ago this week, (or something close to this week,) that I began a weekly blog called, The Telemicus Files. It is mostly to point friends and family to thoughts on spiritual things. As I told you from the beginning, this is not meant to be a deep theological endeavor, its meant to help us think a little and to see that nobility is sewn into the fabric of our souls because God is that way by the nature of his character and we bear his image. So how was this past year for you? Do you feel that you grew as a person? Are you closer to being your true self than you were a year ago? Are you more content than you were? Are you happier? Did you find a better measure of health? Are you closer to God? Do you know Him better? Do you know more of His Word than a year ago? Did you get in shape? Did you find purpose for your life? 

Paul told a group of new Christians in some of the cities where they had established churches, “We must go through many hardships to enter the

kingdom of God.”  Acts 14:22   I’ve found this to be very true. But it’s a glorious journey. The hurt serves us well. It builds our character. It strengthens our reliance on God. It burns away those things in us that are not of God. It’s been a tough year in many respects, but I’m grateful for the difficulties. They helped me. I hope yours helped you. It was supposed to.   If it’s been a tough year for you, press on and take hold of that for which God took hold of you. He did not call you for nothing. Be courageous and face hardship with resolve and a grin when you can manage it. He who called you is faithful. telemicus out
