When I was younger, I had zero (with a big Z) desire to write. Ask my mom (Hi, mom). In fact, I had no desire to study at all.
But it all changed when the Lord saved me in May 2005. I not only experienced a deep desire to read and study God’s Word. I also found myself wanting to process my thoughts through writing.
A Place to Process my Thoughts and Learning
To find a place to process my thoughts and learning, I started a blog. I used the blog as a place to flesh out the details of my biblical studies and consider what practical effect it should have on my life as a Christian.
The blog only lasted for a short time because my family and I moved back to Denmark in the fall of 2012. We experienced a truckload of changes as young parents with a newborn baby. We traveled across the world and established a new life in tropical Scandinavia. So I didn’t have much time for blogging.
Eventually I closed down the blog. But it was bittersweet because I enjoyed writing myself clear and share my learning with other believers who, in turn, was edified and inspired to walk worthy for Christ.
All that to say, after prayerful considerations, I’m back on the blogging horse. I have chosen to call my blog Walk Worthy.
On this blog will find articles on the Christian life, notes from my Bible study and comments on current events in the world. I love reading books, so I will throw a book review in there somewhere from time to time. And even create small devotionals.
Why The Name Walk Worhty?
The idea to the blog name came from a beloved passage found in Colossians 1:9-10. In this section, the Apostle Paul shares his prayers for the Colossian church. A prayer which I desire to be true of other believers and myself:
And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God.
I spend almost 16 years walking unworthy in the pursuit of my sinful desires in rebellion to God. And I encouraged others in their pursuit of it as well. But I heard the gospel and understood that Christ died on the cross to pay the penalty for my sins (1 Peter 2:24). The Lord opened my heart and saved me as I placed my faith in Christ as my Lord and Savior. My life was forever changed. A life changed to walk in a manner worthy of Christ for the glory of God (1 Cor 10:31).
