When I first started this year, I had many grand ideas as to what I would be doing this year. As always, I knew some of these would be fulfilled easy-peasy (whatever that means), some would see completion in entirely different ways cause God’s funny like that, and of course some things would show themselves to be silly in comparison to God’s plan. (Prov 16:9)
In other words: I’m smart enough to know that I’m not smart enough to know much. As is true to experience, God has puzzled me a hundred times over, blessed me infinite times over, and very few things have ended up like I planned.
One thing I resolved was to utilize this blog platform as a way to stay in touch better with those who’ve been such a blessing in my life and ministry, and have cared, provided, and guided me in many ways. I thought I’d do this by posting an “update” each month, but quickly found I was just talking highlights and not really getting in to the thick of it. I quit that in March, and funny thing, God romped on the gas pedal shortly after.
Here is just a super brief fly-over summary as to what’s gone down the last 6 months, why the blog went silent the last two, and where I am sitting now… with mixed feelings.
