This will be my last post on For His Glory. I am suspending publication of new or guest posts indefinitely.
I am in a hard place in my walk with the Lord. I love to write and challenge believers to understand, know, believe and live out of their true identity in Christ. Lately the post well has run dry. Interesting and challenging topics have escaped my heart.
After discussing my dilemma with several trusted brothers and sisters in Christ, whose wisdom and advice I cherish, I discovered something. With everything I’ve been studying in the Bible, every message or Bible study I hear at church, every devotional or testimony I read online, I find myself looking for blog post material.
I’ve been missing what God may have intended for me. My thoughts focus more on what will make a good post than on what principles or lessons God has for me. Writing for you has been a joy and a blessing. I will miss all the wonderful comments you share with me and all your encouragement.
But my intimate relationship with the Father is much more important. I thought I might be able to publish three days a week. I’ve decided a total departure from the time and energy I have devoted to writing my blog will give me much-needed time listening to God and what He’s writing on my heart that I’ve been missing.
Also my church has asked me to edit three or four operations guidelines, which will require a huge investment of ministry time. I have also agreed to edit one of the most beautiful children’s books I have ever read. One of the youth in our church (16-years-old) wrote the book and I think it’s good enough, with a bit of editing, to deserve publishing by a major children’s book publisher. We’ll see.
I want to stay in touch with those of you with whom I have developed personal relationships (as personal as online relationships can be). And will.
But for now, all my Bible study and reading and listening will really be For His Glory and not for my blog.
May God richly bless you all.
In His Love and Service,
