[building blocks]

Zee Gimon

I am Zee. I call myself the Observer because that's what I find myself doing most of the time - observe life and people around me. My blog is a Pensieve, similar to that of Dumbledore, used to keep the thoughts and random ideas that visit my brain.

    Was the Christian University a help or a hindrance, ultimately? Are you glad of the challenge it provided? Did it have good things to offer?

    • It was both, Mary. On one hand, it was a hindrance at first because my Bible teacher was quite a liberal one who combined eastern religions and Christianity and whatever else fit his fancy into one big pot that he taught. I hated his classes because he made me wonder whether what I believed was true. In retrospect, however, it was a good thing because, like I mentioned above, when I stood before the ruined house, I re-built it once again, mostly the way it was before, but with concrete and proper building blocks. And these days, I am able to assess the situation more clearly than I could before the rebuilding.

  • Sorry for getting here late sis. Been away from the computer for a couple of days. I had a carefully constructed house (so I thought) until a series of events in the 80s blew it away. Poor choices, being asked to leave a church because I didn't preach what they wanted me to, burnout, stubbornness…all led to a crumbling house. It was then I had to make a decision of Whom I will follow-God or my own desires. God's Word or a desire to be liked. All the other nonsense that goes with that. My world was rocked again in 2000 when I was politely encouraged to seek employment elsewhere. Once again, I was faced with Who was in control. This time is was a "Bill goes or I go" dilemma and I lost. Least it wasn't over the same garbage. I am much happier and more contented now that when i was trying to do things my way.

    • Can't say you're late because I wrote the post just before going to sleep and I got up a couple of hours ago 🙂 Saturdays are my US-time-zone days 😀

      Ouch – leaving a Church because you don't preach what they wanted you to preach… That would hurt (said Capt. Obvious)… On the other hand, looks like all the wanderings have brought you to the community you've been meant for 🙂

      I honestly have no idea how those people who don't believe in God cope with tough situations. We at least know that no matter what happens, God *is* in control and He can make use of any dire circumstances we find ourselves in… And it feels good to know that we're not in control – there are way too many things to control 😀

      Thanks for coming by, dear big brother 🙂
