As I sit down to write this I must confess that I have two thoughts that run through my mind. One is this: Does the world, especially the Christian world, need another blog? The second: Why do I need to be writing this? Me dabbling in blogging really makes no sense, especially if you know how non-tech savvy I really am. The best answer I can give to both goes back to calling.
About a year ago I was prayer walking in my neighborhood. I love to pray as I walk. I am not sure why. All I know is that I really hear from the Lord when I walk outside and pray. While walking, I really sensed the Lord say to me that he wanted me to be a voice against internet pornography in our culture. I first checked to make sure there was no one else walking behind me. I was kind of hoping that message was for someone else. As I kept walking I realized that message was for me.
I have spent the last year listening to the Lord in how to fulfill this call on my life. I have had opportunity to speak to students, to parents and to men on internet pornography and what God has to say about it. Through our mentoring ministry I have had the chance to walk with several men/students who battle this issue to the point of addiction. It has been a privilege to point these men to Christ and His cross. What a joy it has been to help men find the freedom that Christ offers.
So with that said, I believe this is the next step in my journey to be a voice on this issue. May my voice be His voice as I help men, students and families find freedom through the truth of the Gospel.
