I have updated the name and URL of my blog to better reflect the current stage of my journey through life. “The Way of the Warrior” was a helpful word picture for me a few years ago and, when I was more involved in the martial arts, was a good representation of where I was. This was also a period of a lot of internal struggle I was engaged in.
But my interest in fighting has largely gone away. This has been a internal change as well. Over the last few years, I have stopped resisting and fighting against my Good Friend and the path he is leading me along. Having found him to be completely trustworthy and his way far better than my own, I now go with him willingly wherever he leads, as best as I am able, learning what it means to be his disciple. I am still a warrior, but now I am focused on “fighting the good fight” using Jesus’ strength instead of my own. And thus a needed change from the “way of the warrior” to the “discipled life”.
As my friend Reepicheep encourages me, “Come further up and further in.” And so I shall. Hope you’ll take the trip with me!
