Blogging is Back

So I can say that the blog is back. It needs some touch ups but that will happen as I go along. I’m going to start blogging again, lets see how long it goes this time. Hopefully I can carry on with it.

So, my commitment at the beginning of this year, my new years resolution (haha, what are those) was to grow in Christ. It takes God’s grace. I can’t do it alone. So far it’s been ok. Not as good as I would have hoped, but God acts with me, not without me so I’m responsible to hold up my side of sanctification.

This summer I hope to do a lot of reading. I have over 300 books that I own and have not read. I don’t want to read them to just read them. I do want to glean from them. That though takes work from me and from the Holy Spirit. I will review each book to try to use that as a means to glean from the book.

All the books that I own are cataloged on LibraryThing. If anyone would like to borrow one, just let me know. Here is the link to my catalog: http://www.librarything.com/catalog/mhelfrich

Pray for my growth please.

It’s Been a While

It’s been a while since I posted. I’m not going to look back or try to catch up. I’m going to move forward. I decided to change the name of the blog to Delighting in God because I want to be a Christian Hedonist and I believe Christianity is to know God and to delight in what I know of Him, and that glorifies Him. I moved everything around. The about page is now titled A Gospel-Centered Blog, because this blog is. If it wasn’t for the cross all there would be for me is judgement, but on the cross Jesus paid my fine, then rose from the dead conquering death for me. I also changed the sub-title of the blog to the original name, Boasting Only in the Cross. And that is because of the stuff just mentioned before. Jesus paid my fine in His death, rose from the dead conquering death, because death could not bind Him, and now I am free from death and sin so that I can have God. “Jesus died to bring us to God,” said Peter and it’s true. Thats it. This post is just saying I’m moving forward and it’s for me. I need to work on stuff sometimes and the next series I’m doing is going to have motivation because of the blog. If I plan to keep a schedule, I need to do it.
