This Cloudy Glass

I finally bit the bullet and bought a domain.  I’ve want to do this for a while but could never decide on a name.  My blog topics fluctuated so frequently and I hadn’t figured out my niche (maybe I still haven’t).  I only knew I didn’t want the site to be named after me because I would like to keep some semblance of privacy on the internet.

Then on Monday I figured it out.  Or figured out that I will never have any of it figured out.  And that’s it!

This Cloudy Glass is a play on 1 Corinthians 13:12.  I am a thinker and a dreamer and I read and study and try my best to figure out God.  All my knowledge is but an imperfect glimpse through a dirty mirror, through stained glass.  My perceptions, even in my greatest moments of clarity, are grossly distorted.

I chose the name as a constant reminder that I will never full know in this life.  It is a call to humility and a call to keep seeking the One who reveals Himself.  It is a call to be content with not knowing everything and hold fast to what can be known.

As David says in Psalm 131:

My heart is not proud, Lord, my eyes are not haughty; I do not concern myself with great matters or things too wonderful for me. But I have calmed and quieted myself, I am like a weaned child with its mother; like a weaned child I am content. Israel, put your hope in the Lord both now and forevermore.

Not everything on this blog will be deep, but I will begin to share more of these glimpses, imperfect as they may be.

I am simply one poor beggar telling another where I’ve found bread.
