Well I haven't done much in the blog-o-sphere lately. My life has changed a lot over the last few months after getting my new job. I am determined to start blogging on a regular basis again and to motivate me to do that I have made some changes. I have migrated my blog from blogger to wordpress. After using both for awhile I've decided that wordpress is the blogging tool for me. With that said you can continue to follow my blog at http://godwrestler.org/ . My posts will not be at http://god-wrestler.blogspot.com/ anymore. If you subscribe to my blog via rss or through blogger please visit http://godwrestler.org/ and use the subscribe links to re sign up. You can still use rss or you can get updates via email.

Thank you all for your support by reading my blog. Hope to see you at the new http://godwrestler.org/

I was reading through some of my older posts and I came across this one. I forgot about it and I really like it. So I thought I would share it with you again. 

The breeze blows by riding down the path
their lonely faces appear, some are filled with fear
all trying to avoid His wrath.

I keep riding, and just look away
their eyes give a stare, they think i'm unaware
and all i know to do is pray

They don't see His Good
They don't see He is forever
Blind to His faithfulness
Blind to His Love
They don't see

I stear my bike to the side
they watch me go, they are asking if it's no
I don't know why I duck and hide

Why don't they understand
how can i reach them all, but how can i let them fall
Why don't they reach for His hand

They don't see His Good
They don't see He is forever
Blind to His faithfulness
Blind to His Love
They don't see

The Lord is good,
His love endures forever
His faithfulness continues
They Don't See

They don't see His Good
They don't see He is forever
Blind to His faithfulness
Blind to His Love
They don't see

They don't see His Good
They don't see He is forever
Blind to His faithfulness
Blind to His Love
They don't see

I pray louder, louder, louder
Lord let them see Your Good
Lord let them see You Forever
See His Faithfulness
See His Love
Lord let them See





Psalm 100:5
For the LORD is good and his love endures forever;
his faithfulness continues through all generations.

2 Years Ago... a Broken Ankle

This weekend is the 2nd anniversary of a major turning point in my life. It was a major turning point because it was the first of a sequence of events that just really threw me for a loop. It spun me off in directions I never thought I would have gone. Two years ago this weekend I broke my ankle playing a pick up game of baseball.

I never intended on playing that day but they were short players so I said why not. The game was fun even though we were losing. Then in the eighth inning I made the mistake of trying to slide, and here is the result of that.

 
Yep, I have lots of hardware in my ankle now. If you count that's eight screws and a plate. My ankle is surrounded by scars. I ended up breaking just about anything you can break with the ankle. I ended up giving my Mom a wonderful gift that year. 10AM Mother's Day I went into surgery to try and fix this mess of my ankle. 
Many things happened after that from losing my job to breaking up with my girlfriend. My life was kind of like one of those sappy country songs. Luckily my dog didn't die. Those events are actually what led me to start this blog. I hoped it would provide me an outlet to work through the rapid changes I was dealing with. These events are also how I ended up titling my blog. The title comes from the bible story of Jacob when he wrestles with God and receives the name of God Wrestler or Israel. You can read that passage in Genesis 32.
In the past two years I have definitely come through those trials I had to face. They have shaped me in ways I never expected to be. I am in a place now that I never thought I would end up, but its good. Life is good. God is good. God is sovereign.
