The tagline has changed here on A Parched Soul. The new line, “…In search of God’s Living Water” better sums up what this blog is about.
The old tagline became misleading (“Cutting through culture to find God’s Living Water”). It’s what I wanted the blog to be way back when, but I’m not sure it had very much to do with what the blog actually was.
The thing is, my soul, my being, is parched.
Most of my days feel like God dropped me on an island with no fresh water, all the while being tempted by the salt water surrounding. The sun bakes me, sucking all the water from my body.
So I search.
I climb the hill of spiritual gifts tests, the valleys of prayer and the plains of the Bible looking for the Living Water, looking for direction.
But still I search.
I want to know God’s purpose for my life. I’ve taken the tests. I’ve read the books. I’ve even asked some people wiser than me.
But still I search.
And I grow tired. What to do with my life? What is my passion? What should my career be? Where is all this going?
Most days are good. Some are bad. Some days are focused. Others wandering.
So let’s do something different, shall we?
Let’s throw all (OK, most) of the conventional blogging wisdom out the window and try a new paradigm.
I’ll stop trying to tell you what to do and how to live, and you come with an open heart and mind and share your own journey and struggles. We’ll find out the rest together.
This is a place for people frustrated and weary with trying to discover their purpose. It’s a place for those searching for God’s Living Water in their own lives.
You may come and leave with more questions than answers. That’s OK. Maybe those questions are things you need to struggle with.
I’m tired of trying to do this journey alone. Maybe you are too. Why not do it together?
Let’s start today. Leave a comment answering the questions at the end of the post or just tell me something that’s on your mind. Something real. Something honest.
Thank you for being here.
Are you struggling with trying to find your purpose? Does it frustrate you? What are you wrestling with?
