I've been thinking a lot about my blog recently. I'm considering its purpose and what my goals have been for it and what they should be. As part of the Blog Mission Tour, I decided this would be a good opportunity to state it for myself and for those who might visit.
I chose my title Discovering Liz to reflect my Christian life and my journey of change. Second Corinthians 5:17 says that when Christ becomes our Savior, we become new creatures and leave our old ways behind. Discovering that new creature who I'm becoming surprises me all the time. The Lord has changed me in ways I didn't know I needed to be changed in... such as needing to become physically active, for example.
Not everything I write is about a spiritual lesson. Sometimes I just write what's on my mind, talk about books I've read, relay an interesting story, or I try to be funny. I also try to be real about who I am. I'm not perfect, and I am honest about my shortfalls and what needs to change. I hope that by journaling my own experiences, it might encourage someone else in their process of change.
I enjoy the blog community. I think we're all in search of people to identify with. I enjoy connecting with people who have similar values and experiences, particularly on a spiritual level, and who can laugh at the crazy things that make up our day-to-day lives. If you happen to find that here with me, I will feel as if my blog mission has been accomplished.
