Now that I have your “interest”: after a great deal of prayer, searching the Word and bouncing my thoughts off of my hubby and others close to me, I’m laying down my blogging pen for awhile.
The plan right now is around six months.
I could go into a long dissertation about how I’ve arrived here, but I’ll spare you the long story. The bottom line is that I believe the Lord is leading me to rest from blogging, to write behind the scenes and to lay this ministry before Him with open hands.
I’ve been writing devotions and Christian Living articles on the world wide web for nine years now, and I’ve loved it. Each blessing, bump, high and low has had its effect on my spiritual life, and hopefully yours and others too. But I don’t want to keep doing it just because “it’s what I do,” you know? Sometimes the Lord intends our gifts and talents to be used in other ways, and so I’m open to Him showing me what that looks like.
Those of you who blog know what a considerable amount of time it takes to do it and to do it well. When you add the fact that my heart is to encourage and challenge others spiritually, well, it adds even more prayer and study to the mix, because it’s a huge responsibility.
So the plan is to take the time that I would normally spend researching, planning, praying, and corresponding with readers and give it to the Lord instead–with undivided heart, open Bible, along with blank calendar (well, it’s not blank but you know what I mean) and journal in front of me.
At this point in time, I still plan to be on my FaithColoredGlasses.com Facebook Page as well as in and around my favorite blogging communities, so I’ll look forward to seeing you there. I also have left my calendar prayerfully open to speaking engagements as time allows and requests come.
I want to be totally available to whatever and wherever He leads during these months of Pen-to-Rest. I covet your prayers as the Holy Spirit leads you, and I appreciate your support, encouragement and understanding as I follow God’s lead. I pray to walk by faith, not by sight in this, by His grace and for His glory.
For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of His glory He may grant you to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
Ephesians 3:14-21, ESV
