After several days of blood, sweat, and tears and my amazing husband working some magic, I am pleased to present you with my new blog url!!!! My blog address has been "meledeostaiwanjourney" for four years, and we finally decided it was time to leave that in the past, since God changed the direction of adoption and led us to China. Having that blog address did lend itself to some confusion. :)
From henceforth, you shall find my blog at
http://www.surpassinggreatness.com/. You can also just type in surpassinggreatness.com. Additionally, if you forgot the new url, my old address will simply redirect you to the new one! One final note, blogger has been having some difficultly lately with new urls, so if you type in the new address and it doesn't work the first time, give it a second try and it should work!
Why "Surpassing Greatness" you ask? Well, you have to take a journey with me back to high school and Kay Arthur's Boot Camp to get the whole story. Boot Camp was awesome by the way! We studied Revelation that summer and it ignited my love of studying Eschatology. I even still have my t-shirt from 1994 around here somewhere. Anyway, I digress. It really isn't that complicated. God gave the following verse as my life verse and made it clear that my ministry should center on the fact that nothing compares to the surpassing greatness of knowing our Lord!
"But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ." (Phil. 3:7-8, NIV)
Have a bless evening!
