New Years 2017

Sunday, 01012017 / 3 Tevet 5777

It has been a long time since I updated this blog. At one point, I had purchased a domain and intended to blog regularly, but I ended up getting swept away with a lot of activities. The last time I was blogging was around the holiday season for 2015/2016. Shortly after the last post I made, I went voluntarily into the psych ward in order to get some help for my sleeping problems. Following my release, I became swamped with various activities and didn’t feel inspired to write.

I finished my four year degree by taking online classes early in the year, and was very active with my (then) new church. For a while, I was practicing martial arts and going to a couple of gyms every week. I was baptized and eventually ordained in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Much to my surprise, I found a wonderful woman and was blessed to marry her in November.

I struggled with overcoming an addiction to pornography last year, as well.

Starting in March, my wife and I plan on taking a massive road trip around the United States in an RV we have purchased. She has started a blog to document these adventures, which I will contribute to from time to time.

I intend to blog here regularly, however, as I don’t quite think some of the things I’d want to write about would fit with the vision she has for the adventure blog. I am getting back into the swing of my spiritual disciplines, and this year I want to remain worthy and in prayer in order to receive clarification on a number of mysteries that have eluded me. I want a revelation of time and eternity, of the Truth, of the Restoration of the Gospel and trustworthiness of the Church, of language/words and the nature of the Word, of light and darkness, of Yeshua himself and of heavenly father.

I may also write about video games from time to time. I’d also like to include scriptural components to my posts. Today I leave you with Psalm 139, which was a favorite psalm of mine around this time last year. I was especially caught up with the notion of being a Light in the Darkness, putting myself in some fairly sketchy situations in order to do so.
