I haven’t posted here in quite some time. Not that I don’t have much to say, but I have been busy with the kids, their homework, their weekend sports… and when I find time for it I go to work and clean the kitchen. If you are ever interested in my day-to-day life (who wouldn’t be) you can join Facebook since I seem to post there quite often.
I’ve been reading A LOT lately so that’s good. This reading is priming the pump for some great writing to come I’m sure, but I feel very “un-focused” in the writing area. Again, I have much to say but am I little stymied at the moment.
Here’s one thing I was thinking about this morning when I woke up. In my previous life as a pastor while trying to reach people for God, I spent a lot of time trying to convince them that if they weren’t “fully devoted followers of Christ” that they were missing something.
Well I can assure you that I am not a “fully devoted follower” and I am not missing anything. In fact, although most of my circumstances haven’t changed in the past two years, my internal (or spiritual life if you will) is much, much better.
I don’t go to church, pray or “talk to God”, read my Bible for inspiration or even go to a small group. I know what this sounds like to those of you that are believers. To you, my heart is hardened, I am leaning on my own understanding, and I am arrogant. To some I am even “lost”.
I have never felt more found.
