It feels a little empty when I pull up this site.
I’m used to seeing the writings of the individual who really inspired me to start actually writing myself.
I had been spending my days trying to decide how it was going to work.
John Hembree helped me get over that obstacle. He helped me see that I actually have something to say. And that something should be heard.
I will be forever grateful to him for that.
I will try to do my best in his stead.
And look forward to seeing his writing make a difference, as it inevitably will.
Thinking about these things makes me think about God’s design.
His plan for each and every one of us.
I remember wondering whether or not I would even be able to do this.
And even if I could, who would listen?
As one of the most overly self critical people I have ever even heard of, the idea that anyone would take me seriously was at best a dream, building itself up only to inevitably be crushed.
But I had things I wanted to say.
I still do.
But the fact of the matter is this….we all have something to contribute to each other. No matter how small or large. It adds up.
I cannot be the only one who feels like there are too few voices speaking out for God in this country….in this world.
Say what you need to say.
Let people hear you.
And so will many others.
And maybe you inspire someone else to do the same.
You get enough of us out there making noise, people won’t have a choice but to listen.
And if they don’t, we get a little louder.
And, reading the Bible, you can come across at least one instance where God’s followers made noise all together.
Remember what happened?
The walls of Jericho came down.
Moral of the story: say what is on your mind.
Say what you believe.
Let’s make a little noise.
