Best ways to keep in touch with what I learn and disclaimer
- Subscribe to my newsletter. When I figure out how to easily manage updates you will be on a journey with Ian Anderson.
- Follow my musings on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, Instagram, and Pinterest.
- You can find out more about me at About Ian Anderson or check out my awards history.
- Emailers please note: I receive too many to respond to all! If I did, there would be little time to produce any artworks. It’s nice to hear from readers and fans alongside protagonists and skeptics.
- Freedom of speech stimulates discussion but, gossips, slanders and outright cynics are a pain. My blogs explain my insights, opinions, and revelations (light bulb moments) You are free to disagree. Note: Administrators will delete all abusive responses.
- Please note: like you, I am mortal and hamstrung with limitations. I exercise my free will, learn mercy and act out forgiveness. If my heart was as big as Gods I would love as well Him. Don’t believe the lies about Him because He is not a prick. There are times my limitations are obvious but I talk to God on all subjects, seeking answers and personal breakthroughs into knowing His heart. These blogs represent what I discover.
Let the journey begin
I jump into the big new world of social media.
You will learn heaps about me, what I discover and if you’re ready we will enjoy the journey together. You will laugh, cry, get ticked off, wonder, question, get inspired, want to marry me, want to hate me, and wonder if I am sane or insane. Whatever outcome, you’re motivation will be thinking and reacting.
This is a fact, I give Jesus (the supernatural King of all) the credit for creating a brain for me to use. I am an eternal spirit, living in a dirt body made of flesh, limited within times use by date. Freely, I have chosen to take Jesus at His word and the mystery of God’s eternal existence has overwhelmed me with awe.
It is also true the multiple wonders I experience through daily living are narratives I like to talk about.
An exhortation to all
Transparency will be my catalyst and encourage you to find hope after shame. Faith increases as hope recovers. True love is possible and joy will enter your frame. Hopefully, my change will influence you for good. Knowing Him is inexhaustible.
And yes, I am brainwashed but maybe not as you think! In the true sense of the word, I am being brainwashed from base thinking selfishness, prejudice, arrogance, lies, bitterness, gossip, cynicism, murder, anger, fears, lust, jealousy, and envy tormenters of our secret lives.
“We only have one life on earth. Use what you have wisely. If you don’t know-how (as I did in my struggles), ask the manufacturer, God, for wisdom to act as described. He will open your eyes to the mystery revealed in His constitution and manual, the Bible.
Note: The Bible is not a religious book and was never intended to be. Embedded in the Bibles mystery and overseen by His spirit, is God’s passionate love for all human hearts. If you are hungry for a new life, the manufacturer’s handbook is for you.
Enjoy the ride and check out my art at the links below. Remember these artworks may never have greeted the 21st century if I had not found life after shame.
