I think I may change the theme of this blog from “Dying Empty” to “God and Money”.
In trying to be authentic with what I write, I’m finding the central issues that affect my daily life most often revolve around God and money.
Dying empty is more of a cool phrase, a cliche` even of how I hope to live. But the reality of my every day is a constant struggle between God and money. How to have more of both without selling out my soul/calling/faith nor denying money and living in hypocritical poverty.
Hypocritical poverty would be denying my family’s needs, my wife’s desire, and my own dreams. It’s acting like I’m not living in a blessed country, in a great time in history, filled with limitless opportunities. I’ve got passions and skills in the hottest areas/industries (the internet) and yet I question my time and work ethic because I fear losing what’s most valuable.
So anyway, its a process that I need to work thru. I do expect to get revelation of whatever hinders me and walk in God’s fullness sooner or later. But for now I’m just venting to you. Comments are always welcome.
