Hey hey hey, Welcome home!
So for my first blog, I thought I would explain some of the little things you may have noticed on the site!
The first thing you probably noticed is the little symbols next to the “about” page’s link it looks like this, ” שיבה ” You’re probably thinking “what the heck is that?”. (For those of you who knew what it was, 45 points for you! XD) Well, I’ll tell you, It’s Hebrew. It Means “return” which is part of the notion return of Zion, The heavenly city. It’s Pronounced Shee-vah. Yep, you guessed it! That’s where the last name of my Pseudonym comes from. Oh, I almost forgot to tell you, I have a pseudonym. Wow, we sure are learning a lot today guys! Also, Originally I had picked ” שבח ” (shevach) which has a slightly different pronunciation, It’s pronounced Sheh-vah. It means Praise. Sorry for all you Mortal Kombat Nerds out there, This has Nothing to do with The warrior She-Beast with four arms…
The Second thing you may or may not have/will notice is that I Sometimes Embellish This blog with Arrows. The arrow actually means a lot to me. It’s a symbol for surrendering, Letting go (pun- intended), Realizing that HE is God and you are not, and giving him full control. “How did I get all That from an arrow?” you ask well, let me break it down for you, It’s really simple. Picture this: God is Holding a Bow in one hand, and an arrow in the other, He steady’s his arm, and draws back the arrow. HE Raises his bow, deciding how high He wants it to go, pivots, deciding which direction he wants to shoot. He releases his grip on the string, and finally, shoots the arrow. Now, imagine that you are the arrow, once the arrow (you) reaches the target, you’ve done what you were Created to do (at least at that time). You aren’t in control, The Archer (God) Guided you and got you to your target. you couldn’t have gotten there without him. ↑↓
I am not, however saying that God Controls you and chooses your target entirely, that’s just an analogy for when you have a goal and how to get there. God is not like a puppet master, he does not plan and control you in the same way a puppet master might. You have to invite him in, and give him control of your heart and allow him to work through you. This is a topic I can elaborate on another time.
Thanks for your time and support,
