When seasons change
Ok, time to tap the breaks a little.
When I started to guest write for Joe all those years ago, I never would have dreamed that I would be blogging my struggles, my understanding, and my learning from God's Word. I'm fortunate to do so and I'm encouraged by all the positive feedback - and the constructive criticism - I've received over the years.
I've had to pare down the posting schedule a couple of times since taking over THE WORD from Joe three years ago. Two posts a week have been a pretty good clip - it helped keep me accountable for being in the Scriptures for myself, and it didn't feel too overwhelming or time consuming to write what I was learning.
Through the end of this year will be an exceedingly busy time for us as a family. As such, I need to go down to one post per week. I will still be in the Word, and I hope you are, too. But the time and effort needed to observe, interpret, apply, research, write, rewrite, pray about, edit, rephrase, ask God if He's really sure He meant that, and then to finally post the finished work...well, I need to be able to invest that time in other places at the moment.
I anticipate that THE WORD will be sent out on Thursday mornings. I've always envisioned my post to be something that can give you that mid-week wheel-alignment we all need in between Sundays.
I appreciate your understanding, your love, and your prayers.
