I’m an engineer. I discern patterns. I dig into details. I deduce. I infer. I problem solve. I apply reason and logic to complex situations.
I follow Jesus.
So much of this life is laced with a sense of organized chaos. Our lives can feel like walking contradictions, especially in a culture that touts moral progress, but with each passing day makes us question the goodness of humanity. It presents complicated and seemingly overwhelming situations that can’t be solved with empty platitudes or complete disengagement.
Much of my own life has existed in the awkward middle ground of practical response and half-hearted commitment. The results have left much to be desired.
Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.
The irony of the Gospel message in scripture is that it flips common sense notions on their head and shows how faith in Him is the ONLY common sense notion given the evidence. It is chaos in the most organized fashion possible.
Much of this site is the outworking of a life in desperate pursuit of God’s calling. It is evidence of the continual awakening of a mind prone to wander amidst the natural tendency to find meaning through the lens of observation and tangible pursuits, yet finding purpose in neither. My prayer is that as I learn and grow in the knowledge of God, so too do my character and humility. In faith and God’s steadfast promise, I also pray that those reading this find a GRACE so compelling that their lives are forever altered by it.
In Christ, and In Constant Pursuit of His Truth… Josh
