Searching ?

Hello special friends and Church mates:
Some of you know “my story”; for those that don’t, here is a brief into:  In 1988 I married a very secularly-raised Jew and agnostic, who was going to be lead to Jesus (by our Savior and, a little, by me).  In 1995 he was faced with a huge financial crisis that lead him to understand that he couldn’t control the world and maybe there was some other Power out there.  He came to Christ Lutheran with me a few times and then started worshiping at Temple Emanuel.  The next few years he was a Reformed Jew and even taught Sunday School.  He was a much-changed man, though he kept searching and searching and searching.  He didn’t know what he was searching for.   . . . . I did.  He was searching for the true salvation and unconditional love from our Lord.  He slowly--more and more became immersed in his religion to the point of becoming an Observant Jew.  More to come about what it is like being a Christian and living with Observant Jews.
Don’t we all find ourselves dissatisfied and searching from time-to-time?  And I’m not just talking about feeling deprived when we don’t have enough shampoo bottles to choose from on the WalMart shelves; I’m talking about dread, uneasiness, pessimism, frustration, down-to-the-core troubles, A to Z—even depression = searching for answers “why?”
So what does it take to have peace and understanding?  How simple it is:  Believe that God so loved the world that he gave his only Son . . . and ask.
Lord, fill me with your comfort, peace, and understanding.  Erase my sins and pessimism and lead me to my future, eternal life.

First off I want to say superb blog! I had a quick question in which I'd like
to ask if you don't mind. I was interested to know how you
center yourself and clear your thoughts before
writing. I've had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there.

I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to
15 minutes tend to be wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips?
