Launching

Some friends and I have been creating a new way for everyone who has been following our story to stay connected. We are still tweaking stuff, the “look” is still very much under construction, but I couldn’t wait to tell you about it.

Caring Bridge has been a wonderful resource for Cindy and me. This site {along with Facebook} has enabled those who love us to stay informed and prayer-armed in real time. But now I believe it’s time to release the bandwidth we’ve been so gratefully using to other deserving people who also need support and love and prayer.

For that reason, I am launching a web site that will permanently house the writings Cindy and I began several months ago – www.stevewyatt.net. All of our previous posts have been moved to this site with many new ones still to come.

As you know, I have struggled with whether to continue these, at times, gut-wrenching writings. But I believe that Cindy’s legacy of faith demands that I stay the course. So, with her example as my compass, I will continue to write this blog with the same honesty and transparency my bride displayed. And it will continue to be a raw, unfiltered journal of Steve and Cindy’s journey toward faith — a journey Cindy has successfully completed but one Steve is still struggling to make.

As time passes, and life brings additional opportunities and obstacles, my blog – aptly named Confessions of a Faith Wimp - will expand to a larger scope of topics — but my raw and unfiltered take will remain.

In order to give everybody enough time to migrate to www.stevewyatt.net, I will continue to post on Caring Bridge for a short while, but here’s how you can make sure you remain connected to Wimp:

•  You can receive updates to your email via The Roadster, a weekly resource published by The Crossroads. You can subscribe by clicking here: www.thecrossroadsaz.com. Through this site, you can also access audio files of my most recent teachings – another resource you may enjoy.

You can also follow along by subscribing to the RSS feed {Don’t let that scare you! It only means Really Simple Syndication”} and it’s a really cool and easy way to stay in touch. When you subscribe, you can choose to receive these Wimp posts via email or through a blog reader. Click on the orange RSS link on my blog.

In case you’re wondering why I’m writing with such transparency – it’s because writing is how I heal. And I’m posting them for you for this reason: God sent me and my bride on this exquisitely awful journey — and He did it to give us a platform to reflect His glory. I don’t know why He has now asked me to walk this painful path alone – or why my life of impact has been far too interrupted by loss. But I do know this: This painful trek has greatly expanded my perspective, deepened my compassion and yeh, increased my wimpish faith.

I also believe that God intends to powerful use me – primarily because He has chosen to painfully hurt me. I don’t like pain, but I am choosing, by a very tentative faith, to embrace it.

To be completely transparent, I have no clue where God will take me next. I can’t see everything I wish I could see, but by faith — I hope for it.

If you decide to come along for the ride? Just know that you will get a raw and unfiltered view of what real faith looks like. A path often cluttered by debris and frequently marked by mind-bending twists and disappointing turns. But here’s the thing: Maybe, if I walk it well? And if you see something in me that makes you want to walk it, too? Maybe together – we can move beyond our wimpishness.

Not someday. But…now.

Not at another time or for some other person in some different circumstance. But living by warrior faith…now.
