Everything Begins Somewhere…

“You have to start somewhere,” or so the saying goes.  Everything has to have a beginning.  The perfect example? This is my first blog post.  It exists now (or will when I finish writing it), because you’re reading it (hopefully). But in order for it to exist, it had to be thought about, written, then posted (with a whole lot of behind the scenes computer script working in the background!).  Maybe you are ready to start a new job, or to begin “a new phase of life,” or to “turn over a new leaf.”  Maybe, you are searching for hope, or looking for answers…

For whatever reason, you find yourself reading a blog on a church website from someone you may have never even met.  Maybe the thing you need to hear is just this, “start somewhere.”  When I look back for a starting point, the place I inevitably wind up is: “In the beginning, God…”  The gospel writer John, picks up on this idea when he wrote: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”  This “Word” (God) spoke the universe into existence.  This “God” revealed Himself to us in words that we know today as the Holy Bible.

Need a place to begin?  Start somewhere.
