The year has been quite a growth period for me. I got married, moved an hour away from my home, and started a new job. All in March.
6 months later, I got a new job and moved back to Missoula, Montana (my hometown), got involved in a new church, and started working from home. All in the span of a month.
Needless to say, my life has been kind of hectic. With the changes I underwent and the focus I started to take on design (since this was my primary job), I felt that this blog had started a new life, and that I finally had a direction to write about: design.
However, the past week has once again thrown me for a loop, and I find that my focus has all of a sudden shifted from design to something much more glorious…something everlasting.
Back to My Roots
Some of you may leave my blog because of what I am about to say. And you know what? That’s okay!
As I stated back at the start, I am not primarily writing this blog for my readers. It acts more as a way for me to internally process and come to conclusions on things that I think about. Normally I would say that journalling would be enough, but sometimes I come to conclusions that I think might benefit others.
And so I publish.
To most of you, it’s probably obvious that I am a Christian. I love the Lord and aspire to seek Him everyday, growing closer until I finally meet Him face-to-face at the end of my life. I’ve never hidden this fact, but it’s been rather dormant as of late…particularly in the last year.
So, what has happened in the last week that might make some of you leave?
I am returning to my roots.
All of a sudden, design is less important to me because God has elevated Himself to the height of my mind. His mysteries are too great; His secrets to vast to ignore. I have found that I am captivated again, not to change the world, but to allow myself to be changed by Him.
Does this mean I will never write about design again? Quite possibly, yes.
What this means is that I don’t have time to put so much of my life into my work (because let’s just be honest, I design 40 hours a week already). There is simply too much to discover! Riches too vast and ancient to ignore and miss in the petty, temporary discussion of the present.
I desire revelation and God.
Why I Don’t Feel Bad
Some would say this is damaging to my reader base, and quite honestly, it is. Many who came to this blog came for the discussions on design. But this blog is already relatively new and, to be honest, not many people come around anyway ;)
He’s right, and that’s what I plan to do. Be prepared for more posts on faith, Christianity, and the wonders and mysteries of the Ancient Almighty.
