I need to think more.

I'm starting this blog to put a fire in my mind, a spiritual fire.

As many of you who will read this know I work in an industry which denies it's employees the ability to talk about anything aside from work and sex. The idea is you're not supposed to create division within the company, so religion, politics, and philosophy are things you're not supposed to talk about.

So I'm left five days a week with nothing but a bombardment of often disgusting jokes(of which I participate), with no good things to set my mind on. I often find myself thinking about how great I am, comparing myself to others at work who aren't as fast or strong. Or I find myself resenting those people who I serve(more on the nature of my job later). As with everything I do I find ample opportunity to sin.

"Romans 7:21 So I find it to be a law that when I want to do right, evil lies close at hand. 22 For I delight in the law of God, in my inner being, 23 but I see in my members another law waging war against the law of my mind and making me captive to the law of sin that dwells in my members. 24 Wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? 25 Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself serve the law of God with my mind, but with my flesh I serve the law of sin."

So I'm writing this blog to make a war on my sin, though the renewal of my mind, I want to seek Him, and set my mind on Him, as I make war with this flesh of mine.
