Welcome to the year 2016! Last year, 2015, was the first complete year of my “walk on water”. I have been blessed by this journey and it has taught me much about the bible, myself, and the role that regular rumination can play in our journey to discover God here on earth.
In looking back over the year I managed to post 268 out of 365 days which is not too bad, considering what else has been going on in my life over the last year. I definitely got bogged down in Isaiah over the last several months. I feel like Isaiah could be the subject of an entire lifetime of study and I still would not understand it.
I have been humbled an amazed by the number of different countries that have visited the blog. About 2,130 people from 74 different countries have visited the walking on water blog and viewed about 3,686 pages.
The most viewed pages are not the ones I would have predicted. I tried to find a common theme to which ones were viewed most and the only common denominator I could find is the passages tend to be ones that are confusing, strange, or difficult to interpret. I guess everyone is curious about a car wreck 🙂 Below are the top ten posts not counting the home page or my page of favorite quotes.
- Apes and Baboons
- Senseless Sacrifice
- Floating Axe Heads
- Sprinkling Bowls
- Three Kings – No Water
- Undiscovered Country
- A Valley Filled with Water
- The One River
- Ahab Crosses Over – Incognito
I look forward to another year on my voyage of discovery. It will likely lead me through many more perplexing passages and prophets on my way to the new testament. I am not sure if I will make it to the new testament in 2016, but I will enjoy the journey wherever it leads.
May God bless you in the coming year!
