I also wanted to give you guys a heads up that I’ve decided to change the name of the blog. Mainly for two reasons. The first and most basic reason is because trying to associate a web domain with the road less traveled was a pain… because frankly it’s already been taken!
The second is something more deep. Let me be really vulnerable and transparent for a moment… Do you know the story in Luke about two sisters, Mary and Martha? I know you do, but let me give you a quick recap:
Luke 10: 38-42 says:
38 As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. 39 She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said. 40 But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!”
41 “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, 42 but few things are needed—or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”
Here’s the part where I’m going to be transparent, I’m a typical Martha. I always work hard to make sure everything is done and to my detriment can lose sight of what is really important. Sometimes spending time with my family, friends or Jesus gets put on the back-burner. So, since my blog is the tool I’m using to spend more time with Jesus I thought it was only fitting to rename it to “One Thing Is Needed.”
Hope you like it!
