TITLE: In the Eyes of the Traveller

After getting a computer, I wondered what a “Blog” is. I asked friends and family and the answer which came back to me is, it is a writing. It wasn't till recently I looked it up in “Google,” The meaning made sense. The word is a made-up word which comes from “Web Log.”

Looking further I found the definition of “Log” is commonly known as a written record of messages sent or received. “Log,” could even be a record of events on a ship or a plane during a voyage.

Therefore, in computer technology we somehow have “Web Log” as blog with the letter 'b' directly in front of the 'l' of 'log.'

So now, when I go to my blogs in my blog site on the computer, I now know a record of my life with my Lord Jesus Christ is being recorded and sent to many people around the world.

Understanding that others are writing blogs, it isn't a surprise for every blog to be for different topics and various scripts written. Regardless of our 'log' or 'blog', it seems like every written work is a different voyage and part of one's life.

To enjoy ones' voyage, photos of them being on the cruise ship or on the plane are taken to share with their friends and family when they arrive home. Some, before computers, they would have a log book to record there unforgotten journey.

With Laptop computers, it is easy to put ones' head down and look at a monitor whilst on their journey to write about the experiences, by blogging, which is beheld in the eyes of the traveller.

It is a joy to me to be able to write using the computer to tell about my life while I am a traveller in this world. It is Jesus who is taking the photos as it were, as he looks down on me to correct my life. My life is recorded not by a blog, but by His sinless and perfect hands. Then He illuminates his forgiveness when we come to him in prayer and ask for forgiveness. We do falter writing our own record in our blogs. We don't tell of our sin along the way. We brighten it up as we see our lives so we seemingly encourage others. Yet we think if we show our sin, we will discourage others. Will we? Or will we show how merciful and how great our Lord Jesus Christ is?

I am challenged this day, by our Lord Jesus Christ by His Spirit, to be true, honest about my blog writing in this voyage of my life. I am also challenged to say how I am weak. He is to have the Glory and the log of my life so He can have the victory in the Journey of my life.

This is a good definition of the word blog. I liked some of the reflections about life that you shared.

You had a few minor errors. There instead of their and ones' instead of one's.

I think some of the points you made at the end were quite profound. I enjoyed the part about us not keeping a log of our sins. It had some deep meanings-one that we need to be more aware of our actions but even more important if we have Jesus in our life we don't need to keep a log of our transgressions because once we ask for forgiveness, they are wiped clean.

I like it that you researched the word blog and then gave examples. I agree that no matter what a person blogs about, it can always be shone as a journey in life.

I loved the visual you gave me of Jesus taking our pictures while we are on this journey. :)

I enjoyed this. It held my attention throughout.
My favorite line was the very last:
"He is to have the Glory and the log of my life so He can have the victory in the Journey of my life."

Powerful words. God Bless~

This was a very informative writing since I am from a generation which aren't as savvy as those who have grown up with electronics. Loved the way you brought your love for Jesus into the writing.
