Eric Johnson stared at the website as if it mocked him. The blog's author claimed to be a fourteen year old Christian and unfortunately, it seemed that this...child loved to thumb his nose on a daily basis. As the leading officer in the W.A.D Unit, it was his task to focus on the under aged trouble makers. Those that are actively proselytizing in different arenas, whether it be by speaking or the written word—all of it was under his unit's careful eye.
I gave this blog this name because this is my prayer that God will overshadow me and cause my words to be used for His glory—no matter what happens to me. I'm fourteen years old, almost fifteen.
Eric pushed back from his desk and paced the length of his office. Whoever was writing this blog had to have some sort of adult help. There was no way that a teenager would be able to figure out the Tor network set up unless an adult helped them. To make matters worse, the network housing the Overshadow Me blog was refusing to surrender any information about this elusive blogger. Whoever this blogger was, they were improving their techniques on a monthly basis. Eric had to find a way to stop this teenager.
If you have found this blog and you are still reading it, that means that you know who I am and you read this for encouragement during these dark days. Or, that means that you are curious about my title and I can only pray that God will draw you with my words. And I promise to you, my dear readers, that I will continue to blog as long as I can.
An email caught Eric's eye and he smirked. His IT people finally made some sort of a break through. He moved through the drab hallways and popped open the door.
"So, what do you have for me, Kevin?" Eric asked.
Kevin offered his boss a rare grin. "Your info boss, I found the information on that elusive blog, and this time it's more than an IP address. I've got a name and address. The blogger's name is Jennifer..."
"Send it to my..." Eric attempted to cut Kevin off. But, Kevin waved his hand.
"Already sent it to your phone, boss."
"It's my pleasure, sir. I'm going to be working on some of these podcasts next."
I know that in reality my time is limited on the internet. Any day the cops, despite all of my protections, will find me. And on that day, I know that I will be left firmly in the hands of Christ. But, until then, I will continue to blog daily and lift the name of Christ. I promise you this and I pray once again, that Christ will overshadow me in everything that I do. And, if something is to happen to me, I will see my brothers and sisters in Christ on the other side.
Until then, God, overshadow me with Your presence.
