tempting to edit

I just did a spring check-up here on abrokencup. Some links were dead, and have been removed, and other videos have been put in their place. Unfortunately, there are new and dumb restrictions that mean that you have to click twice on the different videos so as to watch them on youtube.com, but hey at least it works, and you can listen to the songs.

It was tempting for me to edit several of my blog entries as I read through them. I ran into stuff that I don’t know if I believe any more. Or at least I don’t feel like I believe it anymore. Some of what I’ve written sounds idealistic and naive as I sit here and read it on this fine Saturday morning. I am tempted to edit stuff, but I’ve chosen not to. It’s like my journal. I don’t want to edit it, I want to allow it to be what it was when I wrote it. Who knows if it’ll be encouraging for someone. Who knows if I’ll find it encouraging and true myself some other day. I need encouragements myself these days. I look and search, but I don’t find any. Sometimes we’re in valleys that are so dark and deep that they take a long time to get out of. That’s how mine feels these months. I am not easily satisfied with peoples’ wisdom and answer. It doesn’t help. I need to hear from God. I need encouragement. Somehow. Someday. Somewhere. I hold on for the ride, because I know that God is good and interested and invested in me despite what my feelings suggest these days.

I just read a very good article on Christianity Today that talks about some of the purposes of these valleys.

Happy Easter! Christ is risen! He is risen indeed! May he experientially show you and me who he really is!

Blessings, Torben
