Name Change

I have clearly struggled in being consistent in my blogging. I say that as if anyone out there has been really anticipating my next blog. I do long to make more time to express my jumbled thoughts on a more consistent basis.

Anyways... I decided to change the name of my blog from "Life in God's lane" to "ClayNation." I felt inspired in reading some recent posts on a blog concerning the controversy surrounding a famous pastor and his leadership style and church life. One responding post reminded people that we all have "feet of clay." This made me immediately think about the famous passage in 2 Corinthians 4.

"Now we have this treasure in clay jars, so that this extraordinary power may be from God and not from us. We are pressured in every way but not crushed; we are perplexed but not in despair; we are persecuted but not abandoned; we are struck down but not destroyed." ~ 2 Cor. 4:7-9

As I get older I am seeing the fragile nature of life, health, relationships, this world - everything! How many times do I put way too much stock in the here and now and not the eternal things of true value?

ClayNation... not to be confused with the 15 fans of Clay Aiken out there (no offense intended :-).

ClayNation.  The great paradox of this life in Jesus - weak, but strong; in danger, but completely safe; broken, but whole; sinful, but forgiven... DEAD, BUT ALIVE!

That's all. Thanks for reading. I'll be back, I promise.
