It’s the ultimate question, really.
Girlfriends ask boyfriends; business partners ask each other; we all end up at least once in our lifetime, asking this question of the person staring into our clogged toilets. “So… where do we stand?”
For months now, I have asked this question of myself, and of others. No matter what the problem. No matter how trivial it seems, I’ve found myself boiling down the essence of how we should go through life — how do I handle a situation — what if this-and-such happened? What would I DO?
And the answer always boils down to: “Decide where you stand, then stand there.” Don’t worry about the consequences before hand. Stand on principle, and the situation will sort it out eventually… for the good.
I have been pestered (some would say plagued) with an idea for several months now. Unsure how to go about making this idea or vision come to pass, I have resorted to starting a blog. I can only go from here in prayer, believing that what comes of this, is something that will accomplish the two things that matter with this project:
1) Glorify God. (I only offer a minimal apology to the faith-challenged. After all, if I didn’t stand up for what I believe, including my belief in God, this project would be missing the point. Right?)
2) Help to illustrate to you, my readers and fellow Americans, that there are more people, close to you, who are willing to stand up for what they believe, which happens to be the same things you believe. How this gets accomplished, will be explained as I figure it out for myself.
