You may have noticed recently that I have not posted as much as in the past. Many of you know that I am not a “blogger” per se. I don’t have a blog with the goal of deriving an income from it and I’m not trying to make a name in the blogging world. Blogging is an awesome thing and I know several people who do quite well focusing on a blogging niche and working hard to provide great content. As their blog grows, they have the potential to earn an excellent income…and they deserve it. I am not in their class.
For me, blogging is a tiny part of my mission of helping a million people. If I can produce content that is of value to the people that follow me, then the blog is serving the purpose. I share this so you have some perspective on my blog. When the primary work I do to serve the million I am working towards is very busy, this will take priority over my blogging.
The season I am in at this moment is one where I am being blessed to serve at a significantly higher level and in ways that require a significant amount of creative time and time directly with people. My work is booming and busier than ever. Since balance is crucial…a few things have to give. As such, I won’t be blogging quite as much.
I will post a few things a week I think. Of course you can always look back at past content (there over 800 posts stored in the site I believe) if you are looking for something to read that may meet a need. I will still be here…just not as frequently for now.
I am grateful to all my readers and thankful for the encouragement it gives me that you return so often. Here are a few nuggets from my reading before bed last night from the Book 100 Verses and Prayers for Successful Leaders. These are all in the direction of fear. Fear, and its friends self-doubt and insecurity, are what keep most people from living the life they would rather lead:
“There comes a time when we simply have to face the challenges in our lives and stop backing down.”-John Eldridge
“With each new experience of letting God be in control, we gain courage and reinforcement for daring to do it again.”-Gloria Gather
“Risk must be taken because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.”-John Maxwell
“Do not be one of those who, rather than risk failure, never attempt anything.”-Thomas Merton
“Only a person who dares to risk is free.”-Joey Johnson
