Almost two months

So it’s been almost two months since my last post.

It would be easy to blame it on being busy.  Working full time, calling churches to try and book meetings, visiting churches, trying to get our house ready to sell, normal day to day stuff and so much else keeps me busy.  However, I still find time to do the things I want to do.

It would be easy to blame the fact that no one ever visits this site.  So far I have not had a single comment on any of my posts.  However, a stat plugin I have tells me I’ve had over 300 visitors to our deputation video page alone.

It would be easy to blame it on any number of things. However, the truth is I just missed doing it one day.  Then the next day and then the next.  It got to the point where I had missed a week and that turned into two weeks.  By then I was avoiding it so I wouldn’t have to admit I wasn’t doing the things I had said I would in order to keep everyone informed.

It’s like so many of the things in our lives we try and do because Christ is our Saviour.  It just takes not doing it one day for whatever reason and it gets so much easier to continue not doing it.  Laziness, ego and embarrassment are some of satan’s most readily used tools.

Please forgive me for failing to keep this updated.

Things continue to change as May 27th approaches.  Back when we started deputation I had everything planned out.  My last day of work was going to be a major turning point in what and how we did everything except God continues to tell me that He has other plans and mine aren’t how He wants to do it.  I continue to plan and He continues to tell me “Not like that”.  It’s difficult and frustrating at times even tho I know His way is the best.  We have only 5% of our support coming in right now and I know His way is going to make the most of that but its hard to stop trying to plan everything out after doing it for so much of my life.  My spontaneous wife is really enjoying herself tho.

Please pray for meetings and support for us as well as God’s patience with me as I work to do things His way instead of mine.
