I’m quite new at this blogging thing, so bear with me.
In case you don’t know me, my name is Tanner Kevin Baker. I live with my parents and two sisters. I commute to Winthrop University, where I am working to receive a business administration degree with an emphasis in computer information systems. I am not a Christian, as that title brings a more hypocritical connotation in today’s world, but a disciple of Jesus Christ. I aim to live for Him and also through Him. I am not of this world. I don’t need to live for this world either. It is a temporary home as I wait for my home in Heaven. God has called me to be the best man of God that I can be. I have many, many flaws, flaws that God shouldn’t have forgave me for. But he did. And for that I have no words to describe my gratefulness.
I was saved at a relatively young age; I believe I was 6. Through my elementary school years I was about as involved with Christ as a elementary school kid could get. When middle school hit, I was fully immersed in Christ. I felt invincible to the devil’s attacks. I didn’t see him coming, either. Various influences from various kids bit hard, and God became a bit distant. High school was the same, but I matured in a better, fought-for relationship with Christ. Now that I’m in college, I find myself in debates with nonbelievers, and normally do quite well.
I love God, and try my best to serve him, but I constantly fall short. I know he loves me, but why should he? I mean, I know there are better people in this world than me.
I pray that you are encouraged by my short synopsis of my life. I will continue to post on this blog as I see fit, and with what God gives me to say.
