To all my friends out there on WordPress:
I am going to take a break from blogging for a while. I am not sure how long. There are two reasons for this break.
The first is that I have come to realize that a sense of pride is starting to build within me again associated with my blogging activity. I am very susceptible to pride, and want no part of it. I have been down that road, and was a long way from where I need to be with Jesus. The reason I feel that this is a problem is tied into the second reason I am going to take a break. This blog has taken the place of my daily devotions. I read and pray over the scriptures I am going to blog on, but I don’t take the time to read and pray on my own. I am trusting God will lead my thoughts in writing these blogs, but so often I find myself searching for the right words. I depend on the knowledge I have built up through the years to get me through each post.
It is time I started to get back into a devotional time in the morning, as I used to. This blog has been wonderful for me, but with pride getting stronger and stronger, I have to pull back. I may still post on occasion, but it will have to be ordered by the Lord, not me. I will also be taking a break on my Psalmist blog, for those of you who are on both. To replace that, I will be working on the music for many of the songs God has given me over the last year. I have neglected that, and it’s time to get some things going with the music again.
You have all been wonderful, and I’m sure I will be back at some point. I wish you all a very Happy Easter. May Christ become more real to you than He has ever been during this special time of year.
God Bless You all
