Microscope

I hope this page will give you a more detailed view of why I decided to start blogging.
What is blogging?  Its about your life, your thoughts, your experiences, your opinions,  a place to share what touches you and moves you, what makes you laugh and what makes you cry …. the important things in life.   Things like our faith journeys.   I’ve been on my faith journey since 1984, at least that’s when I met Jesus, but I guess I was on the journey long before that, seeking the right road, looking for the turning to the road less travelled.   It’s not that hard really, God says that those who seek will find and He was already out looking for me.
I’ve come a long way since then, I’ve been delighted by God and struggled with Him in equal measure but even when I have doubted I have known there was no other way I would choose.  I have studied theology both in an evangelical bible college and at university and have asked more questions than I have answered  but there is one thing I know for sure, Jesus is the only one I want to call Lord in my life.
About 25 years ago I had the opportunity to visit Peru, it was an eye-opening experience in so many ways but what was most shocking to me was seeing the poverty of people living in the shanty towns around Lima and to then realise that these were by no means the poorest people in our world.  That visit changed me, changed my direction and set me on a different path, gave me a heart for the poor.  How can I make a difference in the lives of those in desperate need?
Living as if every good thing in life is mine by right is not an option,  what I have is not really mine, I’m trying to hold it in my hands lightly, I don’t always succeed.  I want to live life differently,  different to our post-modern consumer culture that is always wanting more, bigger, better, faster, newer!  Always wanting….
As Wess Stafford (CEO of Compassion International) says “The opposite of poverty is enough”  I am an Advocate for Compassion and that is also one of the reasons I want to blog…. I want to make a difference by letting people know about the thousands of children who can be helped through sponsorship, one child at a time … in Jesus name.
