What’s In A Name?

hello_my_name_isSome of you might have noticed that this site has had a few name changes since I started it up.  Maybe you haven’t, and that is fine, just ignore this first paragraph and all will be well!  I have been trying to find a name for this blog, and I think I might have finally settled on one. Maybe. We will see.

I have chosen the site name Relentless Purpose & Growth to reflect what I want my life to be for God.  I have been reading a book that uses the word “Relentless” in the title, and that word has just been pounding in my mind.  What does it mean to be relentless?

re·lent·less  (r-lntls)


1. Unyielding in severity or strictness; unrelenting
2. Steady and persistent; unremitting

This is a character trait I want to weave into my life.  To have a determination that cannot accept sitting back and giving up.  It can be applied in every area of my life, and it should be.

Will I fail? Yes.  Will there be days I phone it in? Yes. Will I want to chuck it all? Yes.  But I won’t stay there.  The focus of my life is to live my purpose for God, and that is to  bring Him glory.  It is a process.  It takes time. It leads to growth.

I want a relentless life.  I hope that as I write these blog posts, people will see that and be encouraged to do the same.  Thanks for reading, and as always I welcome your feedback.

In HIS Grip,

I'm a follower of Christ, husband, and father. Over the last few years I have been learning how to dig deeper into God's Word and letting it influence more of my life. As I learn, try, fail, and repeat in this process I am seeing God's hand more and more in my life and that of my family as well. This journey is long, hard, and at times a little lonely, but living a Relentless life for Christ has rewards that reach beyond me and my family. My prayer is that it brings God glory and leaves a legacy that will show His influence in my life.
