2 Months. That's the longest I've ever gone without having something thought-provoking to ask all of you. One could blame this on the holiday season, the new computer lab our church is starting, homework, or being a new dad. All of these probably added to this word drought. Perhaps the main reason why I haven't been asking all of you thought-provoking questions is because I've been too busy asking them of myself.
From my experience, it seems that we go through different "seasons" in life. There are times when things seem new and exciting, like Spring. There are other times when life seems like Autumn, and everything is transitioning and changing. Other times, life just feels like winter. It's cold and you can't seem to see what's really growing anymore.
When I find myself in these winter months, I tend to ask myself a lot of questions. If you have been reading this blog very often, you know that I am very interested in the relationship between humanity and God. I am especially interested in vocation and calling. Recently I have been wresting with vocation, calling, personality, spiritual gifts, and psychology all at once.
When I first started this attempt to get back on the blog wagon, I had every intention of writing a long, self-searching blog post. Now, after two phone calls and as many requests for help with other projects, I feel quite less inclined to spill my guts on the World Wide Web.
Let me leave you with these questions:
- What makes a person who they are?
- Can a person change themselves to become any type of person they want?
- Does God want us to be a certain person? Does He have an ideal Keith (and/or You) in mind and is He trying to shape me to be this ideal Keith?
