Why “Seeking Arrows”?

“Seeking Arrows”

I chose the name “Seeking Arrows” for this blog because I wanted something that focused on the concept of ambition.  I tend to be very ambitious and want to try new things all the time, which is kind of surprising considering how introverted I am!  Although I wouldn’t say I like to take risks, I enjoy getting my feet wet in different hobbies I find interesting.  When talking about arrows, I think of aiming an arrow toward the desired target, which would be joy.  I want to find joy in everything I do, and I want to do it for God.  The word “seeking” simply means that no matter where the arrow of ambition flies, it should continuously seek out the desired target and not go astray.  Thus the slogan, “aim high – seek joy.”

This concept reminds me of a common but favorite verse of many, and that is Proverbs 3:5-6:

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.”

~ Proverbs 3:5-6 (NASB)

No matter what you or I set our minds to, if we can keep our trust in God, our lives will be working for his good.  No matter how high we aim in our ambitions, if we continue to have faith in God, we will find joy in him.

My intention for this blog is to share the things I enjoy with you, as well as to build relationships with others who have goals and ambitions too!  Be sure to leave a comment to say hi, and I hope you enjoy your time here!
