Here I am. Trying to start a blog. It’s been something in my heart for quite a while now, but finally, I’ve gotten to it. I’ve mustered all the strength to get to this very moment. This is my Leap of Faith so to speak.
Now that you know it’s a blog, the next obvious question is “what kind”, right? I’ll get straight to it, I plan to write my learning and perspectives on — Faith and God, the “Christian” kind. It’s something I’m passionate about ever since my early years. I’ve been a church kid all my life and grew up in a Godly family. I’ve been blessed to have learned and experienced a LOT of things in my journey. These have come from various sources — my parents, siblings, extended family, church, pastors, mentors, friends, peers, workplace and so on. I’m so thankful and grateful for each of them.
Isaiah 43:19 says— Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.
Every blog page needs a name or identity, right? We’re living in frivolous times according to me. Look around, each of us as young people and as believers specifically need help and each other. Much has changed over the course of time. A prominent leader once said our generation carries the greatest potential at the same time is the most vulnerable. It’s with this notion, after much prayer and waiting, I decided to start this blog page. I’ve named it “PivotPost“— a platform for young people to visit, browse, get inspired, and use as a “pivot” from here. The aim is to target this specifically to our generation so to speak and at the same time keep it open to anyone.
My three core principles are to be:
- Authentic: keep it original.
- Relevant: something we can all relate to.
- Engaging: have a discussion about it.
I’ll try my best to keep it along these lines. It’s not going to be easy, I really don’t have any experience when it comes to writing. I was stirred up within to the core to start this, so here we are… Bear with me for a while till I get a hang of all this.
I’ll attempt to cover areas we all can relate to this generation upholding God’s Word as the centerpiece. The frequency of posts released should be around once a month and increase in due time. My greatest desire through this platform is to strengthen our Faith and walk with our Lord Jesus. Also, in addition, I ain’t perfect, not even close, I’m a work in progress too (just saying). Yet, I believe as we journey together we all can learn from each other and make this life count! I always emphasize, each of us are unique and made with a purpose by God. However, I believe we need each other to grow into the fullness of our calling in Christ Jesus.
As I end my first post, if you’re reading this and there’s something in your heart that’s telling you to take a step just like me here, and you know it for sure. I’d encourage you to pray and consider taking that leap. Life is short, we need to make it count. You don’t want to look back with regret. Also, I want to thank you for taking the time to read and being a part of this small initiative, really means a lot to me. Let’s journey together…
My name is Sam Daniel Mathews and this is my Leap of Faith. Phew, I finally made it to the end of my first post.
